Looks like the Tiki Room may go back to something similar to its original form.

Val, I saw this too. Since dh and I were there on our honeymoon (1984), wwe saw the "old" show, and while we may not remember it too accurately, it will be fun to see how they redo it.

In peace,

I'm surprised it's taken them so long - close to 13 years -

I'm kind of torn - I'm sure if I'd only known the original, that's what I would want it to be (we're familiar with the soundtrack too). But we only saw it as the newer version and of course, the girls knew who Zazu and Iago were. But honestly Iago is annoying and he gets what he deserves LOL
Either way, I'm curious to see what they've come up with next!
Now if only they'd do something about Stitch's Great Escape!

You know - I have NO desire to partake in that attraction. It didn't appeal to me when it was Alien, doesn't appeal to me now.... Based on the recap, the reviews and the you tube videos - ugh.

I grew up (mostly) in SoCal and went to DL a few times, saw the clasic Tiki room there. Then I had 2 (3?) trips to WDW with the original version.

I agree about Stitch (and Gilbert Godfrey, btw! LOL). Stitch is such a lovable character and he's so much fun to interact with in person, but this attraction seemed to take the easy way out when it came time for a make-over.

Sara loves Stitch and a few yrs ago Alan convinced her to check out the ride despite my warnings. She came out in tears :( Friends went to WDW for the first time a few yrs ago and I gave them a heads-up about Stitch. The mom was outvoted by the dad and she ended up leaving early with her oldest DD. The youngest stayed put with dad and afterwards wouldn't speak to him for the rest of the day! LOL

I think I'm confused. Are you talking about Stitch's Great Escape (in Tomorrowland @ MK)? I don't think of that as a ride, more of an "attraction"; when was it redone? We were there this year and I didn't really notice a difference ...

In peace,
