    It's amazing to think that this all started with one little mouse.

    Re: Virgin megastore closing!!!

    I heard about this earlier this month. I never went in the place so I don't really feel sad about it going.

    I don't know if there's any truth to it or not, but I did hear a rumor that an Apple store (as in the computer company) is going to be put in its place.

    I wonder if the closing sales have started or will be going on next week. Does anyone in the area know?

    I am hoping that they put an ESPN Club there. I think it is crazy that the company that owns ESPN doesn't have that restaraunt in there signature vacation area.

    They already have an ESPN Club at the Boardwalk Resort. What would be the purpose of having two of the exact same restaurant on property?

    Sorry I meant to say an ESPN Zone. The ESPN Club on the boardwalk is not this same thing. ESPN Zone's are huge restaraunts that are multileveled and have a great menu. Completly different from the ESPN Club. They are also a change where ESPN Club is the only one. ESPN Zones have long been rumored at Downtown Disney if Disney Quest ever closed down. Now there is an opening. Check them out for yourself www.espnzone.com

    I'm so sad that the Virgin Megastore is closing. I loved to just go in and browse all the DVDs and books. But now that music is going all digital nowadays it was just a matter of time till these places started to feel the burn.

    Re: Virgin megastore closing!!!

    Yeah, that definitely is sad news...Always used to love heading in there, spending what felt like over an hour roaming around, listening to Disney music up on the wall( there always seemed to be a couple of Disney related CD's and walking out with a DVD or game that I couldn't find in stores where I am from. Hopefully something decent will come there but it will have very large shoes to fill
