  • Will the Tiki Room ever be Restored to it's Original Form?

    I have never been able to see the show the way Walt meant it to be seen, I have only seen the shortened version that we have now. Hopefully with Tony Baxter being the imagineer over DL, he will bring back the missing songs and the pre-show.

    The reason the show was shortened was because people found it boring and were walking out 10 minutes in. I'm unsure if the old show would entertain our current short attention spaned publi... oooh shiney *wanders off*

        I love the Tiki Room. That being said, I don't think they need to restore the Offenbach number. Leave it as it is now. Its seeing more visitors these days than in years past, so I say leave it alone.

          I wish they would. Lets all sing like the birdies sing. Sweet Sweet Sweet Sweet Sweet. Man Happy Feet the movie wants it supported.

          P.S. By the way does anyone know where to get the music for this.

            Per tradition and the Walk in Walt's tour. Walt was talking with the Sherman Brothers and said "I need a song" when they asked "Why?" he asked the bird mobile to be lowered "For that!" he pointed "What IS that?" asked one of the brothers. "THAT is what I need a song for!" Walt replied.... not sure of the truth behind it but I laughed every time it was told on the tour (Tiki CM we heard it a lot)

            Also a complete restoration would have to include the dining room chairs picked out by Roy (I believe might have been Walt not 100%). Sadly those chairs are now missing and it was rumored that they were tossed on accident. They had been set aside for a refresh, fix the torn fabric and chipped paint, but have been missing since the last refurb. At least we have the server's cabinet still intact.

            I should also point out that it was Roy who nixed the whole dinner show idea. Walt had developed such an amazing show that Roy worried there would never be an empty table... people would want to continue to sit and watch, waiting for this "bird show". Likewise the construction fund came out of Walt's pocket and it had an admission price when it opened. That's why it has it's own restroom... so there wouldn't be an excuse to leave once you entered.
