Ok, I’ll stop. Sorry. I really like that song. Its going to be stuck in my head all day now (maybe yours too?)

As I was brainstorming what I could do my next Magical Monday on, I kept thinking about Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room. This is a great attraction and I think its a little overlooked and underrated, unfortunately. Whenever I have Disney conversations with people – and lets face it, thats a lot – I have realized Tiki Room is often bashed on. “Its a bunch of annoying singing birds” “Its not a ride” “Its a waste of time” “We never go see that” and I’m not going to lie guys, that makes me sad. Tiki Room is awesome. If anything, its a nice excuse to sit down and get off of your feet for a few minutes and you can even enjoy a Dole Whip or Dole Whip Float while watching. Why would you skip that?? Its cute, yes, kind of cheesy but thats what makes it so great.

Then there is the history behind it which makes it 100x better to me. Have you ever noticed that the Tiki Room is called Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room? No other attraction in Disneyland has Walt’s name before it. Do you know why? Well I’ll tell you. Walt Disney was so passionate about making Tiki Room a thing that he put his own money into it – not the Disney companies money. That fact has always made this attraction extra special to me. This was Walt’s baby. And what a mighty fine baby it is.

As always, this Magical Monday is random and maybe a little silly. But its a magical topic I can’t get enough of and I hope its brought even the tiniest bit of magic to your day!
