This November, you'll have chance to take a trip in the Pleasure Island wayback machine. At Disney's Contemporary Resort Nov. 22-23, Disney will be hosting an event called Destination D: Attraction Rewind. Basically, the event gives retro Disney fans the opportunity to revisit some of their favorite now-defunct attractions, like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Adventures Thru Inner Space. Of course, they won't be able to ride the rides again, but there will be videos of the attractions, displays of rare concept art, tons of stories and a Disney memorabilia pop-up shop.
For people who still reminisce over old-school Pleasure Island memories, the highlight of the weekend will be Pleasure Island: Rewind. On the evening of Saturday, Nov. 22, the Disney Contemporary Resort will recreate pre-2008 Pleasure Island with areas that celebrate Adventurers Club, 8Trax, Comedy Warehouse and Mannequins. Disney's not revealing exactly what each of these areas will feature, but it's a pretty good bet that some familiar Adventurers Club characters will make an appearance. And our fingers are crossed that the legendary drink known as Kungaloosh will be part of the festivities.
If you wanna get in on the old school Disney action, tickets for the two-day event are available now to gold and silver D23 (the official Disney fan club) members for $190. If there are any remaining tickets, they'll go on sale May 28 for $250.
