'Once Upon A Time' Visits Pleasure Island

Once Upon A Time has done a great job sending us to many well known locations from the Disney universe. There had even been many that are new or weren't part of it before. In Season Six Episode 12 titled Murder Most Foul David tries to search for clues as to what happened to his father. With only a small coin to guide him, and Hook's help, they discover the last known whereabouts - Pleasure Island.

While the Pleasure Island depicted in the show was directly based on the movie Pinocchio, there were neon letters and lightbulb archways that resembled the version of Pleasure Island that was once attached to The Disney Village before transforming into Disney Springs. This land area was once where the adults could go to enjoy different bars, clubs and shopping. This area is also where the very short-lived Jessica Rabbit store was located.
