would be cool if they would hire some of the local tiki/hawaiian, and or Surf bands to play there.

I'm very much looking forward to this! I have been going to Disney World for the last 25 years and just recently had my first trip to Disneyland and I LOVED it. This gives another reason to fly across the country for it.

I was just there the other day, sneaking around...and they are sure doing a LOT of work. Of course it is hard to get close, except for one wall that has "portholes" built in where you can see what they are doing back there. It looks like a lot of construction going on at the mist caves, which was an awesome place at night (the few times it was not chained off and you could actually walk through and dig the lights on the water!)...the big tiki A frame is already up, and it is very big! Whatever restaurant they are going to do will be quite large. I am getting very excited! They say it will be open in spring?

Great idea, we should get a TC event organized for the grand opening!

It will never happen. They will probably get a band of guys playing contemporary hawaiian music...with ELECTRIC BASS! ):


(like they have at Don's!)

Well I hate to break it to you kids, but the management might not be as hip as the architects. Here's a Facebook message I got a week ago from a certain Disney Tiki specialist. It seems they are looking for a one man act, (cheaper than a band!):

"I just got an email from DL Hotel asking for my suggestions for a one person lounge act for the new bar at DL. In the email they actually specify a "Jimmy Buffett-style musician". I about screamed."

We hooed and hawed, and of course King Kuku came up...but a single "lounge" performer for a nouveaux Poly pop restaurant? Difficult...

Buffet? Figures.

Wouldn't matter anyway. A Hawaiian Hapa Haole band with an 80 plus song list of the golden classic songs like the Smokin' Menehunes would never be appropriate for a polynesian style restaurant. Maybe 40 years ago, but not in this day and age!

Yes they WOULD...c'mon Lucas, just because it hasn't happened yet, doesn't mean it ain't gonna. Don't talk YOURSELF out of it, now! See my previous "right time, right place" post.

Put it this way: Disney is like a family member to me. I may not like them, but I will always love them no matter how bad they screw up. Oh, they'll get my business at the new joint, but I am surely not going there expecting to hear a band like mine playing there. Before you even posted, I already guessed there would be some buffet action in there! Maybe I'll be proved wrong. I will say that the whole thing sounds promising....we'll see...

I send the casting guy at Disneyland a package for the Tikiyaki Orchestra...not even a return email.

They don't get it, and probably never will. Oh well.
