    Tiki Room....

    there are rumors around online about the original returning when this attraction re-opens in August they will bring the original back since there was a severe fire in there earlier this year that is requiring extensive work.

    Do you think the original will return? UNM is so terrible, why bother re-building it...

    Re: Tiki Room....

    I so hope it is true.

    The theory I heard was that it would be comparatively cheap to do and that they could then claim to have done it - or to to be seen to have done it - to commemorate the 40th.

    I would love to see Tropical Serenade (or perhaps a third show), but I would be so disappointed in them restoring Under New Management and wasting the opportunity.

    Zazu and Iago were seen checking the classifieds so I think the original is returning.

    Fantastic. Can't wait.

    Not only do we get (if actually happening) Tropical Serenade back, but its abortion of a replacement burnt down. There is a God!

    UNM was so disrespectful and un-Disney. I hate that version. It's fitting that it burned.

    Gilbert Gottfried is the one who needs to burn...imagine the screeching noises he'd make then.

    Re: Tiki Room....

    I would love it if they returned it to the original. The first time I did the Tiki Room was Under New Management, which I thought was VERY bizarre. After doing the "proper" one in Disneyland this past September, I realised just what WDW is missing. The Tiki room that Walt imagined is so much better! Yes, it might be a bit dated and not as high-tech as many of the other attractions, but there was something so charming about all the singing birds and the chanting tiki-gods on the walls. I for one will be very happy if Iago and Zazu are definitely on their way to the job centre!

    Re: Tiki Room....

    In my entire life I have only encountered one person who - having been around long enough to know Tropical Serenade - preferred Under New Management. I don't know how that compares with the rest of you guys.

    Re: Tiki Room....

    What I think will be interesting will be if, in the event this is actually what will happen, it returns as the original Tropical Serenade... i.e., exactly as it was... or if it will return as the "original" but not really... i.e., the return of MSEP.

    I doubt the current regime can overcome the temptation to "make it better".

    i.e. I wouldn't be surprised by a Lady Gaga reference.

    Re: Tiki Room....

    Lady Gaga would make me giggle!

    The new signage outside the closed attraction seems to imply that at least some of the original is coming back if not all.

    I'm having flashbacks to Imagination. 1st, 2nd and then 3rd addition.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
