Opening in June 1963, Disneyland's Enchanted Tiki Room was the company's first Audio-Animatronic attraction, and today remains one of the industry's best.

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.

Not overly exciting but still enjoyable and a good way to cool off. - David Matecki

This attraction is a pleasant diversion, but even in its original incarnation, it is not a must do. However, because the Disneyland version sports an in-queue Dole Pineapple Float stand, I highly recommend a stop! - James Rao

Classic attraction. Kids may get a bit restless, but it is a great look at a legendary show and a great place to rest and cool off - Rob McCullough

Relaxing. Nice, comfy seats. We saw a cast member named Maynard who was really enthusiastic about his role. I liked him! The pre-show was really nice as well as the show. But, my kids were bored out of their mind. - Brendan Harrison

It's a nice little gem inside of the park. Its in a secluded area and a perfect place to relax for a little bit. The show itself is short and sweet. Some of the songs may seem a bit dated but the opening song(tiki,tiki,tiki,tiki,tiki room) and the last act are good fun. Definitely worth a look and a great place to escape the sun and crowds for a while. - Manny Barron

It's great but I suspect on repeat it could be used as a torture device. Even now that song springs into my mind at odd moments. - Sarah Barnes

This is a Disneyland classic, the very first audio animitronics. It's a cute little show - daniel reyes

HIGHLY reccomend this attraction. Very fun! classic! fun to sing a long with the birds. thank you disney! oh, and the dole drinks, VERY good!! - N O

A bonus not otherwise noted - you can bring drinks (including your Dole Whip) INSIDE the theater to watch the show! - Amy Tupper
