Happy 50th Anniversary Disneyland's Enchanted Tiki Room

Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room, the first audio animatronic attraction, officially opened at Disneyland 50 years ago today.

The Tiki Room was one of the attractions, along with the superior Pirates of the Caribbean and Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, that I was MOST excited to see when we first visited Disneyland February of 2008, due to it's history.

Jose still squawking today.

We visited it several times over our 3 day visit, and loved taking a Dole Whip or Dole Whip Float along to enhance the experience.

 Yes, it was THAT cold out!

The Walt Disney World version is edited and is missing the Magic Fountain, but I still highly recommend checking it out.

Happy 50th Tiki Room, and thank you Walt!

  1. I do like the Tiki Room, while it can be a bit repetitive, it is a nice break to sit and watch the show, out of the sun & crowd. And when you think about it, wow, it was way ahead of its time!
