This was the first use of animatronics. Walt Disney's "Enchanted
Tiki Room" is still showing an version of the original 1962
show. The outdoor waiting area has various "Tiki Gods"
that tell us (and in the case of fire and water, show us)
what they represent just before the show begins. Other than some
numbers shortened or cut, the show is very much like it was when
Trivia: This location was originally designed to be a restaurant
which is why there are restrooms in the waiting area -- the only
Disney attraction to have its own restroom, actually!
Trivia: There was a "barker bird" animatronic
outside when the attraction first opened. So many people stopped
to watch it that it clogged up the entrance to Adventureland and
had to be removed. A barker bird can be found outside The Magic
Kingdom's Tiki Room.
TMK's "Tropical Serenade" features a "barker bird"
animatronic outside to attract attention. TMK features a preshow
with two animatronic birds under a waterfall and then a show that
was completely updated in 1998 (?) with Iago (from Aladdin) and
Zasu (from Lion King) as well as an entirely updated pop soundtrack.
Trivia: The voice of the original Tiki Room birds returned
to update the dialog in this version.
