I only live 34 miles from DLR. I am SO there when it opens!!! Looks fantastic! What a great place to eat after spending time in the Enchanted Tiki Room!

Well, I am deeply dissapointed they removed the waterfalls...(mist caves) because they were awesome, and really would have fit in perfect with the whole "tiki" thing...

I do understand why, of course. Liability. Assholes kept on getting hurt in there, and that is why for the last 2-3 years the area was chained off most of the time.

So who else is going there for the opening??
I'm kinda thinking of possibly bringing da kidz over from Maui
and staying a couple nights when they first open...
Looks like a great place..



Good chance opening day or the next.
We'll definitely get a room at the hotel.
Some excellent rooms specials running now.
Don't hold me to it, but perhaps this may be the location of (what now may be the former) Lost Bar and the really excellent deli/market adjacent to it.

Good news....we were at OA today. Bob & Leroy talked about their involvement with this project and got a peek at the huge Tikis Leroy is carving for the entrance. Bob said the opening date may be delayed because they were recently asked to do a bunch more stuff. I'm sure Disney will still want to get it open before school is out or even Memorial weekend. TikiTony also did a painting that was purchased for Trader Sam's.

How great! Leroy is truly the last craftsman that has survived the downfall of the art form and still is able to practice it in that style today.
HUGE Leroy Schmaltz Tiki = GOOD Tiki

If it's in bad form I'll delete these shots, but here's one of the front columns in its two halves (some people here will never see this stuff in the flesh.) It will be picked up tomorrow and painted by Disney's people. You can just see where the two tiki columns will stand on each side of the door.

Sven,
You know you really like the later right?
It just screams "pre-party city, tiki"

I saw this little mention in a Disneyland Blog:

"And after 18 months of heavy construction the Disneyland Hotel executives also want to publicly market their remade rooms and new Polynesian restaurant and bar with the clever interactive effects that are activated upon ordering certain cocktails or menu items, plus the upgraded pool area and monorail waterslides."

Has anyone heard more detail about the interactive part or what it will involve?

I'm guessing sort of like what happens at the Tiki Ti when you order certain cocktails but with animatronics? Hmmm.

Or it could simply be some sort of ritualistic presentation of the menu item by the staff. Think in terms of
Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour Restaurants, or like this clip from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure which was based on a similar experience.
I'm thinking lighting effects, music, and maybe a little presentation flair is what they are talking about.
