I LOVE the Disneyland hotel ... back when I was still living up North I'd come down and stay at that hotel to get the full-on Disneyland experience. Looking forward to the changes esp to the pool area. I live in LA so it's an easy drive, but will def check it out once it is all completely. Really neat to be able to see the plans.

shall we plan a group trip to the new tiki location? =)


I wish I weren't working that week and that it wasn't a blackout period on my pass the next few weekends. Otherwise I could get a couple of people in the park FREE! Then I'll be at Hukilau in June, Tiki Oasis in August, Goin' Primitive in October... What a year!

My Mom works at Disneyland,
and did some asking around.

She heard its opening on the 23rd.

Not sure if that is in stone.
but just thought I would pass the info.

That is the monday after Tiki Caliente.

I may need to be schooled on this, but just what is the importance of Disneyland to the
classic Tiki/Polynesian scene of the 50s & 60s ?

My parents both worked in Hollywood for the movie studios in the 50s and loved going to Tiki supper clubs & bars
but never mentioned Disneyland?

I am aware of the Enchanted Tiki Room & remember seeing it as kid, but wasn't this long after the actual Tiki Scene, please forgive my ignorance if I am out of line.

The Enchanted Tiki Room opened in 1963. Of course that has nothing to do with when you saw it as a kid which may very well have been long after the "actual Tiki Scene".

So was "The Enchanted Tiki Room" the introduction to Tiki for most of you?

There are a few facets of Tiki, or Poly Pop, some of which seem disparate when thrown into the pot. In a coconut shell, Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room (and the late Tahitian Terrace) holds a prominent place in the later (1960s) incarnation of Tikidom. Disney also had a unique and popular approach to color and style in the Americana phenom known as Tiki. It was the last major influence on tiki until its resurgence in the 1990s.

According to the Orange County Register, it is May 25. But some Disneyland rides and attractions have "soft opening" where a select few are able to get a sneak peak before the true, actual, official, bona fide, legitimate, sanctioned* opening.

* I lost my thresaurus so can't think of any other synonyms

I was just over there to take my son to a birthday party at Goofy's Kitchen. One of the ladies at the hotel giftshop next door confirmed it was opening the 25th also. I peered over the partition and couldn't see much of the inside -- a few nice lamps hanging from the ceiling -- but the outside looked great. Can't wait to see it completed and open!

It's not just the tiki, but the whole "exotic" thing for me. Walt not only had those two attractions already mentioned but built a whole entire world for them to be located in. Some of us have "tropical" backyards (really, just collections of ornamental tropical plants not normally found together in real life) but Walt had an entire river with boats cruising on it! Adventureland is like a gateway drug to Tiki!

My love of Tiki and Disney in one place.......
I'm thinking of hitting Pirates 4 at the Downtown Disney AMC and then like a Pirate having some rum drinks at Trader Sam's
