This may seem a little early, but I am wondering if someone knows of any celebrations or events for this coming June 23, the 50th year of the Tiki Room?
If there was something big happening, I could start making plans to attend, and the earlier the better.

How cool would it be if everyone wore their Hawaiian shirts on that day, in a show of respect for this Disneyland classic?
Well, I hope they come up with something fun, I would love to check it out. Perhaps my Hawaiian shirt and I may come anyway, as I am sure something will happen.

From your lips to Disney's ears, Tikiduck. Not only would that be a fun event, I think that the attraction's such a significant milestone in both the parks' history and in themed entertainment history in general that the anniversary deserves a proper celebration.

They didn't do anything for the Matterhorn's 50th or any other non-park anniversary I can remember besides merchandise.

While not specifically for the 50th, a friend of mine visited yesterday and said that the preshow video had been completely updated. It's the same general concept (here's Hawaii, here's how we make pineapple for you), but all new footage and a woman announcer. Judging by the looks of the old film, this is probably the first update it's had since the attraction opened (not counting the screensaver that plays between showings). I was curious if anybody else had seen it, and how it managed to get by the oh-so-up-to-date interwebs

I read about the updated Dole film awhile back, but have not actually seen it for myself yet.

Well, I guess they could always have the artist Shag do a few lithographs, and import some coffee mugs and t-shirts. That would be a pretty dull way to celebrate.
At the least, I hope the fans come up with something.
Does anyone remember the Pirates merchandise event back in 2000? It was a disaster, but some cool stuff came out of that, like the virtual reality CD of the ride.

Remember????? I think I am still in that merchandise line.


I think they need to have a cocktail party for the Tiki's 50th.

Do tell -- living thousands of miles away from any iteration of Pirates, I'd love to get my hands on such a thing.

Yay! i think the old Hawaii video irritated me more than anything about the Tiki room.

I can see them doing a AP event for the Tiki 50th, but nothing much more than that.
