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.

lol @ this show 2/10 - Owen Scott

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

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. - Bryce McGibeny

As a classic, this little show is pleasant and funny, yet nothing really happens. The pre-show area is beautifully themed and makes you feel like you actually are in a tropical environment (even more than the adjactent Jungle Cruise). The dialogue between the two birds is charming because of its old fashioned humor. The show itself consits of a couple of songs performed by various birds and other characters. As well, charming, but not really exciting. Do this, if you need a short break. - Chris W.

3/10. I had high expectations after hearing how this show is such a nostalgic and classic throwback to Walt Disney and people love the Tiki Birds, to me however, just wasn't feeling it. I appreciate it, just not for me. - Nick Dakuginow

The robotics is amazing! This is something you need to go to, each trip to Disney. If you go the second time on your trip, it will not have the same feel! - B Higgins

This was boring and dated when it was replaced and it is still boring and dated now. Just because what they replaced it was somehow even worse doesn't make this ride any better. 5/10 - Mark Doherty

Better than I expected. A nice throwback to the old Disney. - Rob Pastor
