A new macaw-shaped mug inspired by José, one of the masters of ceremonies of Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, is available at Walt Disney World.
José Mug – $24.99
The sculpted mug depicts José as more short and rounded than he is in the famous attraction.
He has a big pink beak and colorful plumage.
His green back feathers make up the handle of the mug. His head is mostly red, while his wings are yellow and blue.
The mug has a flat base resembling a wooden perch.
The inside is white.
A logo for Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room is on the bottom.
There has been an influx of Enchanted Tiki Room merchandise at Disney Parks recently. We found a Loungefly purse inspired by both Enchanted Tiki Room and Dole Whip and a new Fritz ornament at Magic Kingdom. An orange Minnie ear headband matches new Enchanted Tiki Room apparel.
Last year, José was also immortalized in a Trader Sam’s tiki mug.
Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room
Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room opened at Disneyland Park in 1963. Tropical Serenade, which was identical except for the pre-show, was an opening day attraction at Magic Kingdom.
Tropical Serenade closed in 1997 to become The Enchanted Tiki Room (Under New Management) featuring Iago from “Aladdin” and Zazu from “The Lion King.” Though this version of the show was widely disliked, it remained in place until an attic fire in 2011. The original version of the show was then mostly restored and named Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room.
Another identical version of Enchanted Tiki Room was an opening day attraction at Tokyo Disneyland in 1983. In 1999, it became The Enchanted Tiki Room: Now Playing “Get the Fever!” In 2008, this version was replaced with The Enchanted Tiki Room: Stitch Presents Aloha e Komo Mai!
Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room is hosted by four macaws: José, Michael, Pierre, and Fritz. The show is approximately 15 minutes long and has about 150 audio-animatronics. It features original music by the Sherman Brothers. At Disneyland, it was sponsored by United Airlines from 1963 to 1976, and has been sponsored by Dole Foods of Dole Whip ever since. At Walt Disney World, it was sponsored by Florida Citrus Growers until 1986.
