Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room Soft Opening Photo Report

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

WDWNT Reporter Brandon Struve visited The Magic Kingdom on Sunday to catch the soft-opening of Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room.  Let’s take a look at the “new” attraction:

The new sign marking this as Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room

Let’s get in line

Preshow does not have fire in the water… I seem to remember the original doing so

The “new” pre-show

The birds look great. All brightly painted and feathered.

The Hawaiian War Chant has been trimmed a bit

No more clicking and hydraulic noises when the AA’s move

Crowds seemed engaged, each song had applause.

Show’s over, time to disappear.

Goodbye Adventureland…


Brandon noted a couple of comments on the show:

  • Offenbach was once again left on the cutting room floor.
  • The enchanted fountain is not mentioned, and in its place is a very light smoke effect that shoots up to retrieve the bird mobile. It also shoots out smoke when the Tiki Gods are angered
  • Let’s All Sing Like the Birdies Sing is chopped quite a bit and they no longer do the sing along at the end.  It just abruptly stops.
  • It seems like any song that previously had multiple verses is missing at least one verse each.

Grr! I can't beleive they would change so much! I must say, with apologies, that WDI seem to be getting lazy…
I just hope they didn't take too much off of In The Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. I actually love that song. And what's Offenbach?

I'm really disappointed now… WDI says they're bringing back the Enchanted Tiki Room, and yet they cut so much stuff out.. thats really poor.
