Humuhumu’s description:
When the Enchanted Tiki Room opened at Walt Disney World in 1971, it was a duplicate of the original Enchanted Tiki Room found at Disneyland.

In 1998 it was updated to be more "modern" with a show called "Under New Management". The new show featured the '90s-era Disney animated bird characters Iago and Zazu. The now loud, unsettling and money-focused show featured disco balls, flashing lights, and in place of the beloved water fountain, a shouting, angry tiki goddess named "Polynesia." However, even in this darkest hour, the building itself was still worth a visit, with classic Exotica tunes (such as Martin Denny) often heard playing in the lovely lanai area. The transporting paradise was not entirely lost.

Then, in January 2011, the Tiki gods had finally had enough. A fire struck the Enchanted Tiki Room, and the show room was damaged enough to shut it down. It was restored and reopened as a slightly edited version of the original Enchanted Tiki Room attraction in August 2011, and is now back to the grand, historic, relaxing escape we all love.

How to find it:
The Enchanted Tiki Room is in the Adventureland section of the park.

Traveller when you come to the Magic Kingdom...watch this abomination and then tell the guest services (town hall at Main Street USA) what you think about actually destroying Walt's favorite attraction by violating the classic Tiki Room with a "new management"! Complain! Tell them it was called the Tiki Room because there was a TIKI style show there with wonderful songs and music. And tell the, that you will boycott this terrible, loud, aggressive, annoying show as long as the Disney imagineers don't give us back the real Tiki Room show. I hate this show beyond belief because it wiped out one of the most TIKI locations of the world.

It's back, baby!!! Just like the original at Disneyland (minus the Offenbach to be consistent). The only significant difference other than the decor and the architecture is the enchanted fountain is missing its spout!?!? The fountain fogs up, but there are no waterworks. A little disappointing, but understandable if Offenbach wasn't making a return during the restoration from the previous abomination.
