Set in an immersive room, where singing birds and flowers hang from the ceiling and the walls themselves become part of the show, the Enchanted Tiki Room show takes place all around and above visitors. Most folks under 40 will miss the dated vocal references to 50s and 60s celebrities such as Maurice Chevalier, Bing Crosby and Louis Armstrong. But kids will enjoy the colorful birds and flowers, not to mention the singing tikis and totems.
Disneyland's decision years ago to axe the tedious Offenback number enlivened the Enchanted Tiki Room show and, if nothing elese, the blissful air conditioning's a treat in the summer months, too. Note that this is otherwise the original version of the Enchanted Tiki Room show, not the "Under New Management" version that plays at Walt Disney World in Florida.
One more tip: If the line for Dole Whips is too long, just come into the Tiki Room's pre-show area. You can order from inside the pre-show area and the wait there is much, much shorter.
