Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room at the Walt Disney World Resort has origins that go back to 1963 when the original version of this attraction was added to Disneyland. The Enchanted Tiki Room created quite a stir since it was the first attraction to feature the Disney invented Audio Animatronic figures.
Enchanted Tiki Room History
The original version of the Enchanted Tiki Room at Disney World was called the Tropical Serenade and was one of the original attractions that was part of the opening day of the Magic Kingdom on October 1, 1971. The attraction was a near identical copy of the popular Enchanted Tiki Room found at Disneyland.
After 13 years of this new version, crowds had diminished and people were clamoring for a return to the original version. A fire on January 12, 2011 that caused damage to the Iago character provided the impetus for change. On August 15, 2011 the attraction re-opened in its 3rd version renamed "Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room" returned to a version very similar to the original.
As you probably realize Disney World has mastered the art of creating great pre-shows and entertainment to enjoy while you are waiting for your ride or attraction. The pre-show area serves two purposes the first is to set the stage for the stage for the story that is told during the attraction. The second is to provide entertainment for the guests to enjoy while they are waiting.
