Whatever a classic Tiki Establishment needs to do to hang in there is fine with me but please don't post Comedy Traffic School (as an example) here as a Tiki Event. If Bahooka were still around and had Drag Queen Thursdays, I'd be happy that it was still there.

In the meantime John-O, please have another Zombie somewhere and get this thread back on track.


Well no Zombies, but I did finally make it to the Enchanted Tiki Room earlier this year. First time in my life !!



Kari Hendler aka Tangaroa-Ru aka Smartest (Nerdiest) TC Disneyphile was my guide.

So many insider details and raw Tiki emotions to share but it's late... At least we've jumped to a new page.

Jon-O you missed the ETR when it was the best back in the 80's.

Now it's all clean and perfect!

Singing drag queens has as much to do with Polynesian cuisine & atmosphere as a Pink Floyd cover band or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.



Hey, I'd pay to see Pink Floyd at a tiki venue!

Here is an article about the Samoan tradition of boys raised to be girls.

www.sbs.com.au/news/article/1789586/Fa'afafine:-The-boys-raised-to-be-girls

Cheeky Tiki mug made for the Mahiki and Kanaloa called fafanine. So now there is a tiki connection!

Nothing personal against the artist, but that mug is UGLY !!

I can say that on my own thread.

Anyway on to the Enchanted Tiki Room. So did you know?

1. That the ETR was originally supposed to be a restaurant? I didn't.

2. That the ETR was the first air-conditioned attraction at D-Land? Not me.

3. That when the corporate Disney heads wanted to turn the ETR into a "Lion King" attraction, the contracted imagineers threw a monkey wrench into that "bright" idea by designing something that was deemed unfeasible? Nope.

4. That Disney realized what a cash cow they had during the ETR's 45th Anniversary when unanticipated crowds stormed the park to purchase the expensive commemorative swag? News to me.

5. That the ETR is the most awesome historical Tiki time machine experience up there with the Mai Kai and Hala Kahiki? Yes, it's TRUE !!

Thanks Tangaroa-Ru, the "Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room" song has filled the emptiness of my soul and made me a better Tiki citizen !!

I wanna go back. Can someone spot me a C-Note ??

EDITED - Thanks BTD !!

1. Yes I did, but I'm a recovering Disney-phile.

4.I believe you mean the 45th anniversary.
Posts on TC talked about people standing in the heat on Main Street
To buy stuff.
The recent sale , 50 th anniversary was at a separate pay to attend/buy swag event,
At the Disneyland hotel.

"we all have known this stuff for years".----The Spelling Police.

Welcome to Tiki Central! You haven't officially joined until you've been pissed on by ATP or your spelling has been corrected by GROG, and now you've had both. If you've survived either, or both of these initiation rites, then you've shown enough grit to survive around here. Or, you can just go join Facebook like most of the namby pambys who no longer post on Tiki Central.
