The Tahitian Terrace was Disneyland's answer to the Tiki restaurant. The location was originally part of the Plaza Pavilion and known as the Pavilion Lanai. In the summer of 1962 the facility opened as the Tahitian Terrace with scheduled show times for a Polynesian Dinner review. In April of 1993, the restuarant closed and was re-imagineered into an Alladin dinner theater which performed poorly. Today the space is an Alladin themed story telling location in Adventureland. During the years of operation there were not many items created. However I plan to show several items including menu's, tip tray, postcards, images and more over several posts. The first item is a rare postcard that was part of a series of postcards published in 1966. For many years the numbers were known, but no examples were in collections.
The next item is a server tip tray upon which the check would be presented.
And the final items are the drink stirrers with a great tiki on the top. These are probably the most common items and fairly easily found. The design is not unique to the Tahitian Terrace as I have seen other swizzle sticks with the same tiki for other restaurants.
