A few more of the United Airlines Hawaiian Open decanter types from ebay.

I love this Tiki Drum from 1980.





The outrigger from 1981.

United Airlines was the official airlines for Disney in the 60's and early 70's.
There were signs thru out the park at Disneyland promoting air travel with
United Airlines .Here is a kids menu depicting the Enchanted tiki room on the
back cover of the menu.


Not from my personal collection, photos courtesy of World Toy.






I just learned that my grandfather had a lot to do with this stuff..He was VP of marketing for United, and had the sponsorship for the Enchanted Tiki Room in his budget! My grandmother told me the sponsorship was $50,000 annually. I would guess that he was involved with most of the other marketing collateral seen in this thread.

It was brilliant marketing if you ask me. Rather than just look at a black and white TV ad, Disney patrons were transported for a few minutes to the islands. Right in front of them was the name of the airline that could take them to the real Hawaii!

I've been a Tikiphile ever since I visited the ETR as a kid, but I never realized I had grandpa to thank for it!

I haven't seen a picture of this guy on this thread yet (though I've spotted him in a couple other places on TC...)



He's almost 6ft tall, made of high-density foam and has the "Property of UA" tag on the back.

We just pulled him out of someone's yard here in Chicago a few days ago (fortunately he was under a canopy so he's still in good shape, just a few knicks, some small cracks and a couple small chips.)It had been in the basement of that same house since the 1970's, until the current owner moved him to the yard to make more room in the house.

Not entirely sure where he's gonna go yet, but really psyched we
found him out in the wilds and for a reasonable price!

--Pete

Great find indeed! This fella appeared not only in this fine example of paper cut-out art United Airlines poster...



...but also on the Disney Tiki Room poster:
