with an armband which allows you to purchase alcohol. Anyone who looks

The Adventurers Club is a heavily themed attraction based on Victorian explorers. A bar and the library are at one end of this old colonial
mansion. There are little ante rooms off the main bar in which talking heads talk in
true Disney fashion and cast members perform and interact with the
drinkers. A colonel in a safari suit and pith helmet takes position in
the centre of the room and entertains with stories and songs. There is
an interactive element and the audience have to shout out the catch
phrase at appropriate moments. 7
times a night, the library doors are swung open and you are invited
inside You are seated at
small tables and drinks are served. 7 totally different stage shows lasting 30 minutes each are
performed nightly in the library .
The Comedy Warehouse is a Disney themed theatre in which the
cast do improvisational
comedy five times a night. Don’t
sit by a telephone unless you wish to become part of the show. When the
phone rings, the audience member who answers is asked questions by the
entertainers. They will do this several times and then take a number of
the responses and improvise a play or a song around the key words. It is very clever and because
of the random element it is
different every time. Popcorn and
drinks are served.
