Take a seat in the cool tropical pavilion, sit back and watch these enchanted performers assemble along the ceiling of the circular theater. Jose, Fritz, Michael and Pierre - the four crooning parrots – host this lively revue which showcases a colorful menagerie of flowers, tikis and 200 performing Audio-Animatronic birds.
Before the show starts, you wait outside of the theater for a bit of an introduction. As the lights go down, the birds spring into action with a melodic musical performance. The birds start the musical performance with the famous tune "The Tiki Tiki Tiki Room." With these tropical birds swirling and singing above you, you'll be transported into a cool and relaxing paradise filled with tiki drummers and more. At the end, the birds bid you farewell with a chorus of the “Hawaiian War Chant.”
The line for Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room is typically short. It’s a perfect way to rest while you’re food settles from lunch before you get on any wild rides. Since the action takes place above everyone’s heads, there really isn’t a “bad seat” in the house. We are so happy “the new management” has been let go and this attraction is now like its original version, The Enchanted Tiki Room, from Disneyland. We save Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room for when we need a break from the crowds and heat and when we’re ready to have “The Tiki Tiki Tiki Room” stuck in our heads for the next few hours.
Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room takes place in the Sunshine Pavilion in Adventureland® Area at Magic Kingdom® Park. The show lasts about 16 minutes. When you pass the turnstiles into the attraction, you’ll spend a few minutes in the pre-show holding area. After the turnstiles close for more guests, you’ll proceed to the left and enter the actual theater. The theater has bench seating. Guests may remain in their wheelchair, motorized scooter or ECV to experience the attraction. Flash photography is not allowed inside the attraction.

The Tiki gods that can be seen in and around the showroom are fashioned after the mythological Tiki gods of the Polynesian Islands- particularly Hawaii, Fiji, Tonga, and the Cook Islands.
The original Enchanted Tiki Room was the first attraction to function completely via the wonders of Audio-Animatronics® technology. Listen for Iago singing a whole new version of the smash hit "Friend Like Me" from Disney's "Aladdin."
The Walt Disney World Resort Tiki Room show was originally named Tropical Serenade and debuted on the opening day of Magic Kingdom® Park, Oct. 1, 1971. The attraction was inspired by the Disneyland version that opened on June 23, 1963. Iago and Zazu assumed management of the Sunshine Pavilion in 1998 when it was re-launched as The Enchanted Tiki Room – Under New Management. The attraction was once again, re-imagined and re-launched as Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room in August 2011 and pays tribute to the original show.
The Tiki gods that can be seen in and around the showroom are fashioned after the mythological Tiki gods of the Polynesian Islands—particularly Hawaii, Fiji, Tonga, and the Cook Islands. Richard and Robert Sherman – also famous for writing many other Disney classic songs – wrote the catchy song, “The Tiki Tiki Tiki Room.”
