Interesting article! I must say those Disney enthusiasts remind me a lot of some of us when it comes to the passion they hold for their love of Disney. I know I'm a passionate enthusiast of tiki myself and can totally relate to the article when it described how the Disneyana's pointed out the parts of the park that weren't part of "Walt's vision." I certainly do the same thing with tiki "outsiders" when I take them to an old Polynesian restaurant.

I agree with Humuhumu when she says, "if I were to start judging who is "off" and who isn't, I'd have to look at myself first, and frankly, I wouldn't pass. I don't think a lot of folks here would, either, and I wouldn't have it any other way."

Funny coincidence -- them Disneyana's hate being compared to Trekkies too!!

I can relate as well. I'm happy to point out how UPN's "Star Trek: Enterprise" has nothing whatsoever to do with "Gene's vision" for Star Trek.

Like they say, It's not polite to make fun of a subculture.

Sob...sob...sob...

That's me in the photo and article from the LA Weekly.

I'm not sobbing over anything you folks here are saying (and I already received a very nice apology from ONE of you--thanks!), but I am sobbing over how sad it is that some people cannot accept the idea that people have secret (and not-so-secret) passions in life.

My entire life does not revolve around Disneyland. Just as, I trust everyone here doesn't spend every waking moment in Tiki-land. And yes, I get a little overboard--WHEN I AM WITH FELLOW ENTHUSIASTS.

Tiki fans? Hey--I am happy to bring Tiki stuff to share. And I enjoy seeing what you have or learning something new (Humuhumu gave me some timely info).

As far as my "ordering around" the Disneyland staff--I was unhappy that they weren't as prepared as they shoulda been. You Shag fans were SO NICE about the whole thing, though. Also--the Disneyland staffers there that day were mostly known to me. So just think of it as if you were "ordering around" the staff at your favorite Tiki Bar.

AND...don't believe everything you read in the papers! Frixample, I would never have dissed Trek fans. The "quote" I gave at the end...I never said. The entire article is filled with stuff like that. I knew that this would probably happen if I talked to a reporter--but hope springs eternal.

that reporter was a jerk anyway - he says right off the bat he doesn't like disneyland.
never trust anyone who doesn't like disneyland.

BAD NEWS!

I just saw the new shipment of Tiki mugs at the Disneyana Shop. These are the open stock mugs ($10.50). As you will recall, they had rope detail around the base and handle.

Well... The new mugs are plain tan mugs! The same graphic details are transfer printed around the circumference. But other than that, there ain't nothin' Tiki about 'em!

I asked if they would get any more of the "rope" style mugs, and they said they didn't think so.

Don't get me wrong--they are nice looking mugs (and heavy, too). But they're not the same.

So hang onto your rope style open stock mugs.

Fellow TCers, If anyone is interested, I have two MEDIUM Shag Tiki Room 40th Anniv aloha shirts (brand new) that I will sell for what I paid for them ($58 + $11 ea. shipping from Disneyland) plus whatever it takes to ship to you. Pls email me directly if you're interested. Otherwise I will put on ebay this weekend. Thank you.

We were at Disneyland this weekend and saw that they still have some Shag Tiki Room stuff there. In the Adventureland Bazaar they had a table with the puzzles, boxed cards, neckcharms, mousepad, and the ropeless mug.
