New Year's Eve on Pleasure Island with the Funmeister
"Out with the old, and in with the new---visions untold are waiting for you! Just take a chance, it's up to you---out with the old and in with the new!"---I'm paraphrasing here.
Every night was a New Year's Eve celebration on Pleasure Island at Walt Disney World. The "Spirit of New Year's"---a disco alien lady with an echoing voice----sang a special song and counted down to the New Year with her army of grinding, dirty-dancing friends.
I was a freshman in high school during my first visit to Pleasure Island. I did not drink then, and I only rarely drink now. Intoxicated people can be very amusing, but also sometimes very unpleasant to be around. I have enough problems, so I'm glad that I've never been interested in alcoholic beverages.
I really liked the Comedy Warehouse---it had all sorts of retired theme park props hanging on the walls. And if the comedians were funny, the show was fantastic.
Pleasure Island's mascot was pretty slick----The Funmeister----a dancing moon man with a building for a body. He's a smooth-talking player. I'm sure he won't return your phone calls.
Happy New Year Everyone!
