Tiki, tiki, tiki!
Thirty one years of guest memories plus a renewed interest in retro-tiki culture could add up to a win-win situation for Disney and guests alike if Adventureland’s Tahitian Terrace restaurant and dinner show could be revived. Earlier guests to this wonderful oasis hideaway are still talking about how magical it was and what fond memories they have of it. Hula dancers, firewalkers, and the best island ribs west of Tahiti were featured.
The Tahitian Terrace originally opened in 1962 and ran until 1993 to make way for the Aladdin’s Oasis dinner show, which ran for two seasons. Aside from some storytelling venues, this prime little piece of real estate and been vacant for over a decade now.
It would be great to get a little more romance of the islands back into Adventureland!
