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.
  1. 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?
