Here's a sample of some of the new audio going into the Tiki Room after it gets it's multi-billion dollar refurbishment later this year! ;)

I wish. That's what I call entertainment.

if it DOES get a new shyow i'd be fine with long as Zazu and Iago are blacklisted. on a side note IS there anything happening for Tiki's 5-oh in June?

Okay ;) ... a joke. I can breath now.

Given the fact that WDW's reverted back to the original '63 show (sort of!) .... DL's is safe.

A new show, in keeping with the spirit and format of the old show, would be good. The old one has several elements that are not dating well at all, and it's just going to keep getting worse.

Snow White is timeless. So is it's a small world. Bad Louis Armstrong and Bing Crosby impersonations, not so much.

Hint to the Imagineers and anyone else reading this: No Iago. No Zazu. NO LILO AND STITCH. Keep the present, unexpanded cast or face the wrath of the rain gods. The great Tiki God Mawnck has spoken. Mawncka mawncka mawncka mawncka MAWNCK! Unhh!

A new show with songs that are memorable are important!

In 20 years ... I can only think of two melodies in dozens to hundreds of Disney attractions, shows, etc ..,.. that are memorable like a Rogers and Hammerstien tune - Soarin' and "Fantasmic". All the rest ... crap!

Can you remember the ending of the Holiday Fireworks show at DL? Everyone can remember the Christmas song melodies spread out through the show .... but can you honestly say - the theme song for the show is hummable?

If you can't .... write back, and say ... "Does Disney have the right talent to produce new songs in new attractions that will be remembered for new generations to come?"

Until then .. they can leave Tiki Room alone!

On a side note .... I'd like to know what people have to say about some of Disney's new modern songs in various shows .. particularly the theme song for the Holiday Fireworks show.

Twice ... in the last 2 weeks back in SoCal ... I absolutely loved old favorite Christmas songs .. written by Greats .. decades and centuries ago! The minute the main theme song is inserted .... It's the pure opposite! I might as well listen to Pumbah fart! It's the same! Absolutely awful! They just threw together this modern dreck .... that was just a shear contrast to the wonderful old Christmas melodies. It's proof to me ...... Disney does not have the talent to write songs ... that will stand the test of time - like the original Tiki Room show!

The sooner that awful theme song from the Christmas Fireworks show is gone .. the happier I will be!

Any new songs they come up with for the Tiki Room couldn't be any worse than Let's All Sing Like the Birdies Sing. Almost as bad a the Smal World song.

If the vast majority of people thought like you ... then both of those attractions would be gone ... or songs replaced. But this is where the word - 'Minority' comes in!

< "Does Disney have the right talent to produce new songs in new attractions that will be remembered for new generations to come?">

Sure. The Sherman Brothers also wrote for the movies, of course - why not get Alan Menken, or Michael Giacchino (with lyricist if necessary). Keep the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room as a "unifier" (and nostalgia) and go from there. Both Menken and Giacchino know how to write something that sounds timeless.

I'm totally with you on most of the things written for the parks lately for the live shows - dreary syrupy dreck about "wishes" and "magic" sung in generic princess voice that makes me want to hurl. But Disney does have major talent in its stable if they want to use it.

<A new show, in keeping with the spirit and format of the old show, would be good. >

I agree. Perhaps they could even keep the old one and run it two days a week for the diehards or something.

(Which raises the question: do they still have the old room-sized 1963 computers running the thing? Or did they update that?)
