DDW Pic 27. The Enchanted Tiki Room
The Enchanted Tiki Room (Under New Management)
This photo of the Enchanted Tiki Room (Under New Management) was taken from the top of the Swiss Family Treehouse in Adventureland, at 5:55 pm on January 12th of this year. The reason why the time and date are significant is that The Enchanted Tiki Room had a small fire at 5:30 that same night that shut down the attraction for nearly 7 months. I didn't learn about the fire until several days later, and the fact that I took this picture when it was probably still smoldering is pure coincidence. When the attraction reopened on August 15th, the "Under New Management" version was removed in favor of a show that is very similar to the original Tropical Serenade, which opened with the park in 1971.
