Is that a drive-in restaurant in the center of the parking lot?

Here are some more Enchanted Tiki Room concepts from Marc Davis - this time from 1968, during the design for Walt Disney World's Tiki Room:

Florida's pre-show:



Interior show:


Conceptual idea - possibly shooting beams of light out of tiki god's head? Overlay on original Marc Davis sketch from 1963:


Possible show scene from Florida's Jungle Cruise (never installed), 1968:

Tangaroa, all the Marc Davis and Dave Constable illustrations are just amazing ! Thanks for posting all of them. Tikibars, I think that building the the center of the parking lot of the Polynesian was where the restaurant was located, but no mention of a drive-in on the postcard....what a great idea that would have been !

WOW! Mark Davis artwork is always great. Tangaroa, do you have any more artwork from the original Enchanted Tiki Room?
Your friend,
Louis

Here is a print of Don The Beachcomber's-International Marketplace-Waikiki. It is from a set of signed prints by Don Davey. The other 3 prints are Nuuanu Pali, Blowhole, and Hawaiian Sunset. They came in a presentation folder with a description of each print.



High in a Banyan tree is "Tree for Two"-a bit of old Polynesia created by an International restauranteur. Providing just the right exotic and sheltered atmosphere for such an enterprise, the Banyon tree is a phenomenon. It begins it's life as a seed dropped from the branches of another tree and as it sprouts it sends it's roots down to the ground. A strange network of trunks and roots begins and this "vegetable octopus" has been known to develop as many as 350 large trunks and over 3000 small ones.

I think some of you may have missed this post over on the Beyond Tiki threads, so here it is again:

Here's some Polynesian themed art by the remarkable Mrs. Blair - enjoy!

This painting is a surreal landscape by Painter Steve Meikle,Oakland,CA. I bought this and some of his other works from his estate. He died at a young age. Also bought a blow fish that I found on one of his shelves still in the original wrapper. I named it Stevie. Though it doesn't really qualify for this thread, I'd like to think of it as a view of Tiki Heaven.

Here's an artist's rendering of the Philadelphia Marriott, showing the A-frame entrance to the famous Kona Kai restaurant in the foreground:

Some not-so-great artwork for a 1979 advertisement from Alvin's Fashions, in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida.



Compare with a photo of the exterior:
