Good update, thank you. I have heard that the park is always super busy, so they need to add food service capacity. This is a good way to do it. Even though it's not tiki per se, I know the Imagineers have a fondness for tiki. They may have concluded that this Adventureland location (despite being next to the tiki room) worked better as a non-tiki venue because it's directly adjacent to Jungle Cruise. The tiki room is at the very entrance, sort of off on its own.

Just guesses. Random musings from a sober mind...



It's not NOT Tiki... The Adventureland aesthetic is already a mix of things (much like Tiki itself is), but it does have an overall more Tiki feel to it than the Adventurelands in Walt Disney World, Tokyo, or Paris. It was more pronounced during the Tahitian Terrace days, but there is a fair continuity between the Enchanted Tiki Room at the gate through the Jungle Cruise queue and dock area (with the floating house and catamaran). This has only been accented by Trader Sam's using Adventureland and the Jungle Cruise specifically for its template. Tropical Hideaway will probably have all the stuff we'd typically associate with Tiki... Thatched roofs, torches, Tiki statues, animatronic birds, tapa patterns, Chinese food, and that sort of thing.

That's better news then. I was under the impression it was ultra-lite in tiki, really just an incarnation of "jungle" or "jungle tiki" if those are the right terms. I'm looking forward to seeing photos when its done.

Yes, my comment was meant more towards the "it won't be a bar" part of "not a tiki bar" than "it won't be tiki". I'm sure it will keep at least somewhat close to the feel of that area which, as mentioned, already has a tiki feel to it.

This may explain why Oceanic Arts has been exceptionally busy lately.

According to Micechat.com, "... about ready to open is the Tropical Hideaway in Disneyland, which will very likely open next week. Training is set to begin on the 15th and we’ll see the facility open not long after that. The tiki lamps and decorative fixtures have been lit."

There's a good photo in the article looking down the main entry. If that isn't Tiki then I'm not sure I know what Tiki is anymore.

My stance is that since adventureland was created in 1955, right in the middle of what now call the “ tiki culture” era, with decorations and tikis from OA, then it iS tiki and i would say tiki to the hilt. We have to remember that labeling things was all done retroactively, by later tiki authors in the 90s.
Back then, it all fell under much vaguer definitions like polynesian, exotic or jungle.

Finally - chairs to sit on in Adventureland.

Who cares if it's "Tiki"? This was Walt's backyard; let's see YOUR backyard.

It's gonna be REALLY busy.

Thanks for those links, Bushwich. I haven't been following this project recently, so I didn't realize that there's going to be an Audio-Animatronic tiki bird in the space, too.

"Rosita is a friendly cockatoo that looks forward to meeting travelers from around the globe who are also visiting The Tropical Hideaway. Pull up a nearby seat and say hello! But beware… she has a repertoire of jokes and one-liners that would make any Jungle Cruise Skipper proud!"

I just hope it isn't too annoying or tacky....
