Interesting; that looks almost exactly like the glass I got during my visit last August.

This looks great. You could sneak some airplane bottles in and empty them into your ex-Virgin Tropical Libation, then just sit around watching the Jungle Cruise boats coming in.

Yeah, add a couple of skewers and ya got a party. Put your feet up on the railing. They ain't gonna get me out of that place once the sun sets.

I think that's the first time I've seen the merch precede the announcement of the attraction, let alone the existence of it!

It's a little difficult to read, but the glass appears to say established in '58. Could this be in reference to the restaurant idea that Walt had before making the Enchanted Tiki Room just an attraction? Or are they just using the original Tiki Room date?

I looked up the glass (and t-shirts) with the logo and it says "Est. '63", so it's referring to the Tiki Room.

Right. The main text says “Walt’s Tropical Hideaway Karaoke Hut,” and the surrounding text says “Where the birds sing words and the flowers croon.”

With exception of the “y,” the font for “Tropical Hideaway” on both glass and wall appear identical. The pessimist in me thinks they decided, “Hey, we already did this thing for merch; let’s just go with that.”

I would say you are spot on with that. A little revision and you've saved yourself hours of work and time on needlessly rebranding what was already created.

We also can thank the Imagineers for their enjoyment of tiki and tropical things which they have had for a number of years. They just plain enjoy this stuff like we do. It's cool, it's fun, and their guests enjoy it.

That might be a LITTLE cynical. If I was going to speculate wildly, I'd imagine it was more along the lines of them working from the same zeitgeist and maybe seeing the merch and thinking it was a good name. After that, you just borrow the same logo until the real logo is hashed out.

Okay, I can see it that way, too. But considering the company’s recent “laziness,” can you blame me for being pessimistic?

Although I don’t really get why they’d change the appearance of just one letter between the two designs....
