    I'm fine with both shows, the classic and not so new. The kids, when they were younger, could really relate to the characters in the Under New Management show..

    The old was better. Better music, songs and jokes.

    I miss the old show, too. My 2 and a half year old knows the words to the original show thanks to the History of Disneyland CDs!

    When I was younger I was happy they changed it... but after seeing it once it got boring and I missed the old one. I thought it was funnier and more fun in general.

    I hate the new version. It's brash, annoying, and not entertaining. The old show was relaxing and fun. I wish they'd bring it back. IMO the cynicism which the new show rubs your nose in has no place in a Disney park.

    Bingo, I agree. We enjoyed the older version, back in the 70's and 80's. Though we still make one trip in the attraction, we sure remember the old days. Our first visit to WDW was in 1977, and we were in there and they did the thunder and lightning part and in the fake windows the rain was coming down, we said, "there goes this vacation" only to be fooled by the theatrics and exiting the attraction to see the hot Florida sun beaming brightly. Godfrey is alittle over the top and not really needed in the attraction but overall the show is still one of our must do's.

    I too prefer the original Enchanted Tiki Room. A Disney classic.

    Miss it, but also like to newer version! In my dreams there would be a park that would hold all extinct attractions and original versions of rehabed attractions! Ahhhhhh......if only

    I'd love it if they brought back the old show, not a fan of Iago and really not crazy about the goddess.

    Exactly.

    I also love Under New Management. It's just as great and funny as the original show, which is not coming back to WDW anytime in the future, as it became way too unpopular at WDW in its final years.

    Some people get way too bent out of shape over UNM and, IMO, if they hate it, they don't have a sense of humor.

    Re: Tiki Room

    I have a sense of humor. It's just that UNM isn't funny. It features lame music (example:Miami Sound Machine), it's cynical to the point of being insulting & I HATE Gilbert Gottfried so whatever he says is going to be annoying. They shouldn't ever have used such a polarizing voice actor. It was timeless in its first iteration. It's now very dated and in need of another refurb.

    Re: Tiki Room

    I love the old version. I usually go into the show once on every trip, but that's really just for the beginning, before the "new management" comes out.

    If we can dream it, we can do it

    Re: Tiki Room

    Maybe I'm repeating myself but I'm glad Disneyland kept the original version, it's just classic Disney to me. Also, I don't mind the fact that you can grab a Dole Whip in the queue (and can eat it inside the show too!)
