A Sad Sad Day for Disney

by kimntrent on June 28, 2008

In many ways.  I belong to several disney chat boards and today I have read some things that are just sad.  First off I just read that Disneyworld is closing Pleasure Island as of September 28th.  It is the end of an era there.  I remember when it opened and now it is leaving.  I feel so old. At Disneyland we lost some swing dancing greats.  They were called the Dirty Dancers to most but Rose and Dub the fabulous Dirty Dancing swing couple have passed away.  Dub passed first and Rose two weeks later.  They had been dancing at Disneyland since the 1960′s.  If anyone has ever watched the swing dancing at the Carnation Gardens Stage you would have seen them with their matching costumes and their funky moves.  No more!!!  Disneyland is going to honor them on Saturday, July 26th.  They were truly a site to see and we watched them dance for hours.  Until next time…. Use Buzzfuse* to easily rate, review, and share this item

I’m so sad to hear about Pleasure Island.

Wow that’s a long time to be dancing at Disney. May they both rest peacefully.
