A new member Wideimaging posted a thread for this on Locating Tiki with a link to some amazing slides that he purchased. I thought I would add his great photos over here just in case the link goes away some day.

An aerial shot of the Polynesian Pavilion and the 5-sided pool. You can also see the sales stand with the palm trees through the roof on the bottom right of the photo.



The huge Tiki at the entrance, this one has some new flanking Tikis and a new entrance sign.



You can see some of the huts in this one.



And the New Guinea area.



Thanks to Wideimaging for posting these photos.

Here is a matchbook from my collection from the Guinea Pavilion.





It advertises authentic Guinean dishes at the restaurant. I wonder what those consisted of?

Madam, would you like the Deep Fried Cassowary in a savory sago sauce or spit roasted boar stuffed with Yams? Some muli warra to wash it down? Some banana pancakes for desert?

Mr. Naufrago,

Great images from the Lincoln-Mercury guide. I will have to look for that one, being fond of the Tiki renderings issued by Ford in their restaurant guides
(See Here)

I found some more photos of the NY Worlds Fair that are for sale on-line from Bill Cotter.

The Polynesian Restaurant and the outdoor tables.



Now to the Hawaiian Pavilion.

The view coming in.



I don't remember seeing this giant Tiki before!



Another shot of the area from the lagoon.



The Five Volcanoes restaurant.



The Hula Show





And remember, DON'T eat the pineapples!

Lots of beautiful images on this thread. I find this one particularly striking. Just a great use of negative space, abstraction, and typography.

This is a WONDERFUL thread. An intersection of my interests.

How long until EPCOT gets a polynesian pavilion?
