  • Does anyone else miss the Tahitian Terrace?

    Closed in 1992 the Tahitian Terrace in my opinion was the best restaurant and most entertaining in Disneyland. Does anyone else agree with me that they should close up that horrible Aladdin's Oasis and reopen it? The park is in need of some good quality restaurants and the Blue Bayou cant be the only good one! Anyone want to share you memories or photographs of this great restaurant...

    It was better then the Blue Bayou in my most humble opinion. It should be brought back, but I guess the folks at Disney have crunched the numbers and somehow, someway think that they can make more money by just having those stupid, walkway crowding, ODV carts everywhere instead

    ....and why not, those ODV carts are so much more magical then any tahitian show could ever be

      I loved the Thaihttian show that was there. I also loved coming into port of the Jungle Cruise as the show was taking place. Gave more of an Adventure feeling to the land. I also miss seeing the Steel Drummers above the entrance of the jungle cruise.

          Definitely. Everything about that place from the food to the shows to the location. And it wasn't a movie tie-in, it was just about the pure lushness and delights of some far-off tropical paradise. It felt like adventure.

            Hey tahitian, I think they should just tear it down and put like ten ODV carts there instead.
            What they really need is minibar on the Mark Twain.

                    I say bring it back if they do it right. If they're going to do some half-assed version starring Stitch, they can forget it.

                    I think they took it out because it was expensive to run. All those performers and a restaurant. That's a lot of dough. But again, they're pretty cheap and money is all they think about....

                        TT was taken out because it wasn't that popular anymore. Oasis came in to boost guest interest, but it was too small a facility to justify it's escalating entertainment cost. A bit unfair as parades and street entertainment do not have to justify or pay for themselves.

                          I personally never experienced it. I wish I had, because all the pictures looked like it was great. Wish it would come back, but once it's gone, you know it's never coming back

                            1966

                            I personally do not remember the Tahitian Terrace, but my dad does. My dad worked at the Tahitian Terrace as a cook back in 1966. He worked there for 10 months as a cook. He told me that Walt liked to dine there and often did about two-three times a week. He told me that where the cooks were they could actually see the dancers change outfits. (That was my dad, girl crazy!) But he did seem to enjoy working there and everything.

                            From my Walk in Walt's footsteps tour I learned that the Plaza Pavilion, Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room, and (former Tahitian Terrace)/Aladdin's Oasis all share the same kitchen and technically they could re-open it as a kitchen. I understand the change, especially with the popularity of Aladdin; however, something new would be great. Since the kitchen is still there I would love to see a restaurant.

                              Tahitian Terrace was my absolute favorite!!!

                              It was nice, but not expensive. It should be brought back. Are you sure it was 1992? I seem to remember maybe eating there in 1994. Who knows though.

                                I'd like it even if they just brought back the restaurant without the show (or with a very scaled down show).

                                  Agreed, Emaraline. Just the restaurant with some music or a small show and some torches would be a nice touch. I loved this restaurant, my Mom would take me there when I was a kid and it was the best part of our day at Disneyland. You really really felt transported away during the dinner / show with the sights and sounds of Adventureland all around you.

                                  On the original maps it just says "Hawaiian Music" with tables outside on a patio behind the Plaza Pavilion. As someone said, the Plaza Pavilion and Tahitian Terrace are just opposite sides of the same coin, they are two sides of one building with a kitchen in the middle. So if they reopenned the Tahitian terrace they could also reopen the Plaza Pavilion at the same time.

                                  Maybe get the kids birthday facility moved over there are bring back the view from the patio of the Plaza Inn accross the way...

                                    Here's what they should do:

                                    Bring the place back (duh) with the stage on the east side (not north, backing to JC as it currently does), bring back the lush environment, including waterfalls (must have waterfalls!). In the front area, open up the wall between the Aladdin waiting courtyard (by JC exit) and the main area by dropping the wall lower (say, to "bar" height). Now, turn the old waiting area into a tiki juice/smoothie bar with a view (also, the open view helps generate interest in the restaurant, while simultaneously blocking enough view to discourage people from just watching the show from the walkways (eg: the last good view is from the bar, everything else you can see it, but it's too much of a pain to just stand there, so you want to either enter the juice bar or restaurant to see it well).

                                    Anyway, that's my take. The music and partial view would bring more life/movement to the land, plus you would be adding both a restaurant and ODV-type places at once (but hopefully the juice bar would be incorporated into the restaurant, and not run by the ODV people).

                                    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

                                      Good idea, Morrigoon.

                                        They should bring it back. The Aladdin Oasis is a waste of space, and we all know the park could use a sucessful and fun place to eat.

                                        I remember going to it everytime with my folks for dinner. My dad really liked it, and all the kids have a great time watching the fire dancer.
