A new exhibit is now open at the Disney Gallery on Disneyland’s Main Street U.S.A. “Tiki Tiki Tiki Realms: Celebrating 50 Years of Enchantment.”
The exhibit honors the 50th anniversary of the Enchanted Tiki Room. Guests visiting the exhibit will find the original Barker Bird that appeared above the attractions entrance when it opened as well as concept drawings and paintings from the early 1960’s.
In 1963 the Enchanted Tiki Room made its debut as the first Audio-Animatronics show. Surprisingly enough, Walt envisioned the Tiki Room as a dinner show. However, once he realized the magic of the groundbreaking technology that enabled the synchronization of movement, audio and visual effects of a number of animated figures all at once, he changed the format so more guests could be touched.
Today, the Enchanted Tiki Room still maintains the original vision of Walt Disney but with a state-of-the art show-control system, re-mastered audio and a versatile, energy-efficient lighting system. Be sure to call Castle Dreams Travel, a proud sponsor of What’s Up With the Mouse, to get started planning your next Disneyland trip to celebrate this 50th Anniversary.
