Atmosphere: Well, you're in the lobby of a movie theater so enjoy the boisterous atmosphere of the excited movie-goers getting their popcorn & candy. The bar has a flat screen tv set to ESPN (it's Disney afterall) and 6 chairs. Off to the side you'll find a couple cushioned chairs and tables with another tv. A perfect place for early arrivers to wait for their movie with a cocktail.
Review: We arrived about 45 min. before our movie and snagged 2 seats at the bar. After a quick read of the menu board, we chose a Hurricane and the Carbbean Cooler for our first round. Fully expecting the typical "Disney pour", we were surprised that these proved us wrong. The specialty drink prices differ, but average around $8. These were well worth their value. But, here's the insider's secret - there are a few drinks you can order in 20oz. cups for that same $8 price! Ask the bartender for specific beverage choices but we're sure there's a 20oz Long Island Iced Tea. This makes for one of the best deals in any park in Orlando. Who would've thought a movie theater would have nicely poured & priced cocktails? Not us! Be sure to notice the great deals for beer too - $8 for 32oz. of Blue Moon? Nice!
While the Pleasure Island that we all loved is a shell of it's former self, there's still a few good places to have a good time here.

But, it is worth mentioning, Pleasure Island is gone. There is not one club left, sadly, including the Adventurer's Club.

We're in the middle of pulling in a string; great numbers. Give us a little bit to get this done at the sorting table.
You can get a pretty good margarita or other tropical drink from this full-service bar while shopping at Downtown Disney on the Marketplace side. Located just down the steps toward the marina you'll find this little out of the way stand.

Review: They pour a pretty mean Rum Runner here. It was $9, and the bartender said that the higher up on the drink sign, the more expensive they get.
