The Enchanted Tiki Room ? Under New Management is a rework from the original 1971 Audio-Animatronics musical show.

The outside is like a tropical setting with a waterfall in the waiting area with two funny birds who talk to you. When you enter you will sit on a bench surrounded by tropical scenery. Then all kinds of beautiful birds, including some posted along the wall, will sing to you and make you laugh. Also, will see the famous parrot from the movie Aladdin, and yes, he sure does have the famous voice you won't forget.

Ride Experience:
My kids loved it, especially when they saw the famous parrot from the movie. I really enjoyed the scenery and the birds singing to everyone. It was very colorful and kept me very entertained. It felt like I was in a tropical hideaway.

The three-minute preshow starts with an argument between two show stars, William and Morris, as to who actually owns the theater and ends with a three-minute post show with a few wisecracking comments. Stick around for the post show if you can. It's worth it.
