In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Tiki Room at Disneyland, the Disney Company has released some amazing new merchandise.
Before we dive into the special merchandise that you can see (and win here!), let’s talk just a bit about Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room.
About The Tiki Room
The original Tiki Room at Disneyland opened on June 23, 1963. It was the first Disney attraction to feature audio-animatronics – in this case some wise-cracking birds, plants, and totems. Thankfully, the Dole Food Company sponsors the attraction – which also allows us to enjoy the wonderful Dole Whip desert. Because the show was one of the first to use computers, it was the first fully air-conditioned building at Disneyland.

Disney World’s version of the show, originally called the Tropical Serenade, was an opening day attraction in 1971. In 1998 the show changed over to The Enchanted Tiki Room (Under New Management) with Iago and Zazu from the Disney movie Aladdin, and after a fire in 2011 it went back to the original show concept and is now called Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room.
About The Merchandise
In celebration of all things Tiki, Disneyland offered some very fun merchandise. That merchandise is now available at The Art Of Disney store in the Future World section of Epcot.
Let’s take a look at what you can buy there:
This Pele Enchanted Tiki Mug is $39.95.
This Tiki-styled bag with bamboo handle is $59.95.
These eight postcards by the artist Shag go for $19.95.
