Theming With Tiki

Today's images show the theming in Adventureland. The first image shows one of the original Tiki statues that could be found. This was prior to the Tiki Room.

The second image shows the fence around the Tiki Room. This is the theming that I am most nostalgic about and love to walk by every time I visit Disneyland.

I can't believe that the large tiki statue in the first picture isn't still around - - somewhere. Wouldn't it be amazing to find a contemporary photo of it, at a restaurant or maybe in somebody's personal collection?

Totally agree with you on the second photo...I love that area of Disneyland, especially at night with the torches burning. :0)

This entry is certainly bringing out the Tiki Room mavens. This bridge is also a favorite of mine, especially in this particular configuration were the Tiki Room garden is hidden.

Opening it up may have helped attendance, but it ruined the tropical mystique of the forecourt.

Your pictures are beautiful. I live on the East coast so we visit The World, but we're planning for a trip to Disneyland in the coming years. We would love to have that Disney experience as well.
