Universal offering special ticket to Pleasure Island passholders
Universal Orlando's message to soon-to-be-ex fans of Walt Disney World's Pleasure Island: come to CityWalk.
The rival entertainment districts both are full of adult nightclubs. Both offer one-cover-charge-for-all-clubs deals. Disney also has annual pass deals for its clubs.
But Disney is closing Pleasure Island for good this weekend. Many of its fans have been pushing for months for Disney to reconsider but the effort is turning into a lengthy mourning, particularly for the eccentric Adventurer's Club.
Universal announced it would allow Pleasure Island passholder passes to swap their Pleasure Island passes for a special CityWalk passes, allowing free admission from now through March 31, 2009, to select CityWalk venues: Red coconut Club, Bob Marley's Pat O'Brien's, Rising Star (above right,) the groove, Latin Quarter and Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville.
Normally, a one-night, all-club access pass to CityWalk nightclubs runs $11.99 plus tax.
