So for the past month, I’ve been planning a December trip to Walt Disney World. (I haven’t been since the mid-80s, shortly after Epcot opened.) Lots of research required to determine when to go (all adults, so we were looking for an off-time), which hotel to stay in (Swan), and which restaurants to reserve for dinner (which you can do 6 months ahead of time, and you have to to get some of the best ones).
In all my reading, I’ve been trying to keep up with what’s going to change at the park by that time. The big announcement is that Disney is closing Pleasure Island, their group of nightclubs and dance venues, in September. No big loss — we weren’t interested anyway — except for the Adventurers Club, which I just learned about. If Disney was smart, they’d move it to the Animal Kingdom area, which is lacking in attractions compared to the other parks anyway.
The story that made me feel like I was really going to miss out was Peter David’s proposal story, where he asked his wife to marry him at the Adventurers Club. It made me cry, although it’s very joyful.
