In the Enchanted Tiki Room, sing along with a lively menagerie of exotic birds, flowers and tikis in this jubilant Disney classic. A feast for your eyes and ears, this theater-in-the-round attraction presented by Dole invites all to experience the exotic beauty and magic of the Pacific Islands.

Inside the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room Breeze into what looks to be a ceremonial house located in the heart of Polynesia and take a seat around a lush floral fountain. Nearby, hanging warrior shields, ancient statues and woven bamboo fixtures echo a mysterious story of ancient traditions.

As the lights dim, 4 colorful macaws quickly spring to life and begin to sing a series of jubilant island songs. Before long, the chorus of crooning birds is joined by an enchanting cast of over 225 choreographed Audio-Animatronics performers, including bobbing parrots, giggling cockatoos, crooning orchids, drumming tiki statues and chanting wooden masks.

Sing along and clap to their rousing original songs, which seamlessly mix traditional South Seas rhythms with classic Disney wit—and enjoy the magic of Audio-Animatronics technology, created especially for this classic attraction.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back to my first trip to Walt Disney World in the mid-80's. I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times. I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it. Other interests include 80's nostalgia, vintage toys, video games, LEGO, Star Wars and tech gadgets. Other sites include DMR and VideoGamesStats.com.
