The Enchanted Tiki Room is an enchanted structure in the middle of a Hawaiian Jungle.
The Enchanted Tiki Room is an enchanted structure in a Hawaiian Jungle. It is owned by four macaws: Jose, Michael, Pierre, and Fritz. The macaws use the room as a place to put on their show, which they began in 1963. Other birds who have lived in the Tiki Room over the years are Rosita, who later went on to become a miner's canary at Big Thunder Mountain, and Juan, a cousin of Jose, who has at times greeted guests at the entrance of the Tiki Room. The Orange Bird has also been known to visit the building from time to time, but cannot sing. Many other birds also reside in the room and perform as background singers during the shows.
In 1998 the show was taken over by Iago and Zazu. Iago changed the show to such an extent that it angered the Tiki Gods, particularly Uh-Oa, the Tiki Goddess of Disaster, who drove him off using her powers. The building is known to be enchanted, and any wish made on the premises usually comes true, often with unexpected consequences.
Behind the scenes
The Enchanted Tiki Room first appeared in 1963 in Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room, an attraction at Disneyland Resort and later at Walt Disney World Resort. In 1998 it was refurbished as Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room: Under New Management, introducing Iago and Zazu to the show. It was restored to the original version in 2011.
