    Well, I should have clarified; the CM always does the safety spiel, but I meant then afterwards, you have 15 secs to deliver your wake-up call.

    Re: Waking Up Jose

    I've had kids wake him up before, generally having them clap or say his name etc. We used to have a parent hold them up with the stick but one kid hit Jose like a pinata and broke him. Since then I didn't let the kids use the stick.

    I'd never had anyone request to wake him up, and aside from using the entire audience, I've never had an adult wake him up.

    Re: Waking Up Jose

    My 6 year old daughter just got to wake up Jose the first week of December. It was pretty much right after the announcement of no flash photography. It was one of the cutest things I've ever seen. We've always said she has a "Minnie Mouse voice" , and to hear her start the show was fantastic!!

    Two days later she also was able to talk to Crush for quite a bit!

    I've never seen a guest wake up Jose, but then again, I rarely see the show. However, I got a book from Disneyland for Christmas and it recommended asking a CM if you could wake up Jose. It also said, "Beware- Jose has been known for calling men 'senorita's' so don't be offended"

Very funny.
    haha awesome!

    I have never heard of a guest waking up Jose, but I love the idea!! I would totally LOVE to be able to wake him up! I would get a real kick out of. I love the Tiki Room!

    Re: Waking Up Jose

    When I was there at the beginning of December, I went into the last show for the night (Dole Whip Float in hand) and the cast member asked us, us being the entire audience in attendance, to wake up Jose! So we woke him up. Everybody also sang like the birdies sing, too. Everyone had a lot of fun in that night's show, even if we were a small audience tired at the end of the evening.

    OFF TOPIC -

    I hope Maynard has toned down his act there, if that's the case.

    In any case, I'd never seen a guest "wake up Jose" in all my years of going there.

    But a clever idea.

    Over the years, each one of our four kids have started off the show.

    Too much fun!!!

    I would suggest a host start saying to the audience. "My name is Manuel Ita. You can call me Senor Ita." Thus when Jose calls him senorita... well you can probably see where I'm going here...

    Re: Waking Up Jose

    I went in the Tiki Room on my last visit, I hadn't partook in that particular attraction for quite some time (several years at least), although I often visit the Disneyland Resort. A little girl, maybe three or four years old, blonde and adorable was picked to wake up Jose. I didn't remember it being done this way before, however, it had been a long time, and so I chalked it up to my faulty memory. What is the standard operating procedure when it comes to starting up the old tiki tiki tiki ti... well you know, the room.

    started a topic [Fun] Waking Up Jose

    Waking Up Jose

    Has anyone gotten lucky enough to 'Wake Up Jose' (start the show) in the Enchanted Tiki Room?

    I was asked once and glady offered to do it, and for some reason I was really nervous :P My voice cackled it out, but it was still fun.

    Also, does anyone know what happens if you ask to wake up Jose? I heard something weird happens.
