Club Report: Atlantic Dance Hall

We were overdue for a visit to Atlantic Dance Hall at Walt Disney World, so on this warm July evening last night, here we were!
We found DJ Tony B (USA) in the booth playing Top 40. Didn’t recognize him with the beard!
Just a handful in the beautiful art deco club before 11PM.
But activity would slowly pick up during his Classic Dance set which included Haddaway (TT) hit “What Is Love” and Snap! (D) hit “Rhythm Is A Dancer”.
More and more groups arrived onto the dance floor.
Pleasure Island mini Reunion of sorts last night! Spotted: Tim, Mursalat, Danielle & Alex. The upcoming Magic Mike/DJ Icey show at House of Blues on Labor Day weekend will be a much-larger PI reunion event as I’ve heard of dozens of Pleasure Islanders attending from around the country! Advance tickets here or without the fees at the HOB box office. It will sell out so don’t wait!
DJ Tony B. was a Pleasure Islander too, having played at club Motion, Rock’n’Roll Beach Club & PI Live.
And when the DJ steps out of the booth and onto the dance floor…….
Dancing in unison to the music video he was playing!
He even got me onto the dance floor for the “Cupid Shuffle”!
ADH is so huge that even when there’s a lot of people it can still look empty. But shortly after midnight, there was actually a lot of people!
And a good time was had by all.
When Disney closed Pleasure Island in 2008, Atlantic Dance Hall became their only remaining owned & operated dance club. They’re open Thursday-Sunday nights from 8PM to 1AM and it’s located at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort. Admission and parking are free.
