What? No surf bands? No fezzes?

Anyway, here is the link in case it dissapeared:

I am pretty sure that I saw John-O sitting in the audience, around 1:07 I think!

These are all images of the larger size menus that were used in the 1960s when the Terrace originally opened. I believe the green one is the earliest. Note these are all Dinner menus, I am looking for a Lunch Menu in Green and Orange. The menus measure 10 by 10 inches in size.





Does anyone know who the artist was that did the original cover art for the menu? I looked around a little but I couldn't seem to find a name attached to the art anywhere. Am I just missing it or is it a case of it being done by one of the many uncredited Disney staff artists?

I just got two old photos from the floor show at the Tahitian Terrace.

This one shows those speakers and drum that are in numerous other images.



This one is cool



Zoom in on the Tikis adorning the A-frame structure.



I was inspired to look for some more photos on-line, and found a few more on Daveland and other sites that have not been posted yet.

Some early photos.






A nice one from the Stouffers era.



The waterfall.

Some more web images from the Tahitian Terrace:

Check on the ceiling in the outdoor dining area in this photo!




The entrance sign.




Lei greeter.




These gals have cool United Air Lines print dresses.



The Tahitian Terrace rocked.

This question is for Matterhorn1959, I'm just trying to confirm my suspicions about what it says on the back of the tip tray. It looks a lot like Kys-Ite. I'm asking since my father collects Kys-Ite and my grandfather was and engineer for years for Keyes Fibre. Thank you.

Bongo,

Nice poster. Mikee has been finding lots of stuff lately!

Here is another photo showing that wacky ceiling, dancers and waterfall at the Tahitian Terrace. I wish the new place had taken some design tips from these old shots.

Per Bigbrotiki's request, here are some of the menus. All of these are dinner menus. The first one is from the mid 1970s and still uses the great cartoon imagery. Here is the front:


And the inside of the menu:


And the back of the menu:


Just to show that I am a complete lunatic, here is the inside of another menu from the 1970s with different prices and meals:


In the 1980s, Kikkoman Soy Sauce began sponsorship of the restaurant. The menu changed from the fun cartoon graphics to a more tapa cloth based design withe Kikkoman symbol:


And the inside of the menu:


And the back of the menu:



These menus are smaller in size than the 1960s menus, measuring 5 by 5 inches when folded and 5 by 8.5 inches unfolded.



I noticed the Monte Cristo disappeared after a while. I remember eating one here. Years later, I read that they added pineapple juice to the egg batter!

Love this thread. Saw this menu that was not represented here yet.





Obviously one of the very early first ones, the Monte Cristo was only $1.50!

And there was a Junior Surfer item for the kids, cool.

I used to take dates there for dinner. It was always a good time. I still have several of the shell necklaces which we were given when dining there.

Spotted this old photo that sold on ebay with a great looking Tiki outside the Tahitian Terrace. An Eli maybe??



I remember this guy being on a Mystery Tiki thread somewhere before, I think?
