If any of you have been to the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort and went to the Tiki Room to see some talking birds you know that this is a big deal. The Tiki room as been close for years now because it was falling apart. Every once and awhile it would reopen for a short time after receiving some fixes, before it would close again for remodeling. In fact the name of the show even changed at once to the “Enchanted Tiki Room – Under New Management.” I guess that’s just Disney’s sense of humor.
Anyway it looks like it is opened for good now, and the show has totally changed! It used to feature a ton of talking birds, but the main characters were Lago from Aladdin and Zazu from the Lion King. Now they brought over a theme from Disney Land in California, a place I have never been. So, this whole thing is going to be an entirely new experience for me!
The new characters are four birds that are apparently a hit over in California. The birds are Jose, Fritz, Miachael and Pierre. These four parrots are supposed to be a collage of humor and fun, and with over 200 birds to sing along with them I am really excited. The new ride is going to be named Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, so it’s only dropping the “Under new Management” part. I am really looking forward to the new song addition to the show called “Lets All Sing Like the Birdies Sing.”
I am going to have to grab the kids some weekend and head out there. I might wait a little while because the ride is a theatre style “show.” So after the first few weeks I think I can avoid the large crowds. This is a nice little treat before they add the other additions to the Magic Kingdom Theme Park!
