    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. - Walt Disney

    I'll go! Here's an easy one to get this thread started again.

    Merriweather Adam Pleasure is correct. Here is a little more information from the trivia section.

    Pleasure Island opened officially on May 1, 1989, the same date as the Disney-MGM Studios. Walt Disney Imagineers created an extensive legend for the island's history and former owner, Merriweather Adam Pleasure. Pleasure was an entrepreneur who enjoyed traveling around the world. He had a flourishing sail-making business, but in 1941 disappeared at sea trying to sail around the globe. The island fell into ruin in the following years, and a hurricane severely damaged the existing buildings. Imagineers cleared out the overgrown jungle and rebuilt the island, using the original "funmeister's" philosophy for good entertainment to turn the old buildings into innovative nightclubs. A large movie theater complex, using the latest in presentation technology, was built next door. The theater has hosted several film premieres, such as D ick Tracy, and special screenings of Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and Father of the Bride. Plaques detailing Pleasure’s original use for each building are posted throughout the island. Pleasure's large greenhouse became the country dance bar, the Neon Armadillo Music Saloon, now the BET Soundstage. Imagineers converted his engine factory into Mannequins Dance Palace, a hot dance club similar to those found in New York. Magician Doug Henning contributed to the special effects found at the Adventurers Club, a throwback to the English safari clubs of the thirties. Memorabilia from around the world (that were given to Pleasure or brought in by international friends) cover the walls, hallways, and strange rooms. Two unique table-service restaurants opened with the island. The Fireworks Factory used to be Pleasure's own fireworks-making facility. Inside, tables and chairs were arranged around blackened metal siding and blown-out brick walls. Now the building houses a top-40 club called Motion. The Portobello Yacht Club has a nautical setting, with model boats and sailing paraphernalia decorating its interiors. A few changes have been made since Pleasure Island opened. The under-21 dance club Videopolis eventually became a progressive club called Cage, then the retro '70s club, 8TRAX. XZFR Rockin' Rollerdrome, a dance club and skating rink, was converted into the Rock & Roll Beach Club. A food market area changed to the Pleasure Island Jazz Company and is now Raglan Road.
