The Enchanted Tiki Room Is Slated To Re-open At Walt Disney World
Do you remember “The Enchanted Tiki Birds”? Those four crooning parrot hosts who have been entertaining guests at California’s Disneyland since 1963 in The Enchanted Tiki Room are in the midst of preparing for the premiere of a brand new show that will pay tribute to the Disneyland original by using sophisticated Audio-Animatronics technology.
Prior to 1963, Walt Disney’s creative team had produced movable figures, but none had the sophistication of the bird-brained cast of the Tiki Room.
Now, José, Fritz, Michael and Pierre produce movements when solenoid coils hidden inside receive signals recorded onto magnetic tape and are regarded as the first “true” Audio-Animatronics figures. They introduce a musical presentation by more than 200 birds, flowers and tikis. Even the audience gets into the act, joining in during the musical ditty “Let’s All Sing Like the Birdies Sing.”
Expect tradition mixed with the latest in technology – a state of the art show-control system, remastered audio, and a new versatile and energy efficient lighting system.
The attraction has shows throughout Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom operating hours and is slated to debut on August 15, 2011.
