Walt Disney at the Enchanted Tiki Room

Before jumping into the weekend, we wanted to share a few important updates with Disney Parks Blog readers. First, Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom Park is scheduled to open on Monday and to celebrate the big day, we’re launching a few blog-exclusive stories, including a behind-the-scenes look at the attraction. Our coverage begins on Sunday.

Also, we’re thrilled to announce that Walt Disney World Resort will bring an additional Monorail train into service. It’ll be identified by a new peach-colored stripe when it joins the fleet this fall. Over the next few weeks you may spot us testing the train on the Monorail beams before we bring it in to be painted.

Here are a few other tidbits of information that did not make it to the blog this week.

  • That is GREAT news!!! It was one of the first shows my wife and I seen over 35 years ago. It was on our honeymoon. We will be there again on vacation in two days. It will be nice to see it for the first time again! Thanks Disney, I know you have to change some attractions to stay with the times. But, I look foward to see those attractions every time I go. It brings a lot of good memoreries back. Looking foward to see the Tiki birds!!

  • I’m hoping that this will inspire imagineers to update the technology at Disneyland’s Tiki Room. Audio-animatronics technology has improved so much since 1963.

  • Any update on when to expect Special Offers for Stays in October? I am headed there the week of the 9th and so far the specials that I have seen only run through the 1st? Any update would be appreciated. Thanks.

  • I’m so glad they are bringing back the original version of the Enchanted Tiki Room. I’m looking forward to seeing it again.
