Sit down in a dark, air-conditioned theater and listen to dozens of animatronic birds, flowers and tikis sing above and around you in this reproduction of Walt Disney's original Audio Animatronic show from Disneyland.

The Magic Kingdom's Tiki Room opened as "Tropical Serenade" in 1971, then was replaced by a sarcastic, satirical sequel, "The Enchanted Tiki Room — Under New Management" in 1998. Widely panned by fans, that version of the show closed after fire damaged the Tiki Room in 2011.

The current version of the show is a restored and edited version of the original, omitting the central fountain and sing-a-long, as well as a long Offenbach number that once drove many viewers to the exits. The Enchanted Tiki Room now plays at a brisk 10 minutes and offers a fun, gentle "musical luau" for guests who need a break from the heat and hassle of a busy day in the park.

So happy now that the show has returned to its original form. However, I do miss the tiki gods preshow present at the attraction in California. All the same, this is a good place to take a nice air-conditioned break during the hottest part of the day. Also, the talking tiki masks are cool.

A alright show with some good audio animatronics and a very catchy song. an overall average show, but quite entertaining.6/10

I actually kind of liked it. It was fun, not too long, cute and, of course, an escape from the heat. I enjoyed the effects in the window and how just above everything in the room was part of the action.
