Disney Stops Rumors about Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room Renovations
Rumors have been flying around about the beloved Tiki birds at Walt Disney World Resort including rumblings that it was going to become a Moana attraction, but Disney has put a stop to the rumor train stating:
"We’re sorry that our fans are being fed incorrect information by unscrupulous sources. While “toucan” play at that game, we deal in facts here at the Disney Parks Blog. Although we won’t address every rumor, we want to set the record straight: there are no plans for our feathered friends to fly the coop any time soon. We’re constantly evolving our stories, but these birds will continue entertaining our guests at the Magic Kingdom Park just as they have done since 1971."
In fact here are five facts about Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room:
Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room is home to 88 singing birds, and over 225 choreographed Audio-Animatronic performers in total.
Walt Disney was inspired to pursue the concept of singing birds after seeing a little mechanical bird on a trip to New Orleans.
The Tiki Room was originally envisioned as a restaurant with a show, but eventually became the classic attraction that we know today.
A version of the attraction exists at Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort and Tokyo Disneyland.
While the Walt Disney World Resort attraction has gone through some changes over the years, it continues to delight thousands of guests each day!
