98 votes and no comments? Anonymous fanboys must have shown up.

Although PhilharMagic (yeesh - that awful name) is not the best attraction in this category, it is the more enjoyable of these two. The Tiki Room is more intimate, but doesn't impress me quite as much.

And yes, I am speaking of the Disneyland Tiki Room.

Gotta go with Mikey's Philharmagic, one of my favorite if not my favorite overall for this category.

Ummmmm, I can still smell the apple pie Joshua and a victory.

This isn't fair, Robert! Another tough choice. OK, I went with the Tiki Room, although it was almost a coin toss for me. It's just one of the most charming AA shows ever.

PhilharMargic. Fresh, entertaiing, great music and the Donald. Enough said.

As much as I enjoyed the Tiki Room, I mostly much prefer the 3D shows. This one is one of my favourites if not my favourite. It is entertaining from beginning to end, has some of the best characters, some great effects and a fab story.

There's a small Disney Tiki movement out trying to raise a Twitter army... not sure it is going to save the show, but we'll see.

Personally, I like Philharmagic quite a bit, but then I have not seen the Disneyland Tiki show since 1981...

From James Rao on March 30, 2010 at 3:26 PM
Clearly, that Twitter movement I mentioned has fizzled. Go Mickey!

A Shame that Disney Classics are losing to, well, Disney!

Tiki Room still is great after all these years


Reminder: This is the DL version, not the WDW one which is an insult to Walt!

Somehow I missed the second two votes today. However, despite not voting in this round, this match-up turned out the way I would have preferred. I do really like the Tiki Room, and I do always leave with a smile on my face, but Philharmagic, awful name aside, still impresses me every time, and the musical selection is great. It is the only theme park 3D movie other than Terminator 2 3D that is on my "must-do" list.
