SPARKS IN THE ENCHANTED TIKI ROOM

Living in Delaware her whole life, Jessica did not know much about Walt Disney World until she went at 13 years old. That initial trip, though, got her hooked on the magic. As the years went on, she did everything she could to learn more about Disney (including watching documentaries and reading books). She did not know many people that shared her passion until she discovered the wonders of the internet and the Disney community found on it. She has gotten involved with as many Disney projects as she can, including writing the weekly news articles for The Disney Driven Life and writing for her own blog, The True Disney Fan. Jessica has also taken on a position with Celebrations Magazine, working the social media aspects of the publication. Through all these platforms, Jessica strives to bring as much Disney magic as possible into her everyday life, and she works to share it with everyone she meets!


The Enchanted Tiki Room: Under New Management, an attraction in Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom, is currently closed due to a fire inside the attraction last week.  The fire started in the attic of the attraction, but did not get very far as the emergency sprinkler system was set off, dousing the fire rather quickly.  There was a show going on at the time of the fire, prompting the immediate evacuation of the attraction and surrounding areas.  From what I understand, not much of the attraction was harmed in the fire; they are just keeping it closed while they find the cause and fix any possible water or smoke damage.  There has been no word as to when the attraction will be reopened.

This is the second fire so far this year in Orlando parks.  Earlier this year, there was a fire inside an attraction at Universal Orlando.  I hope this is not a foreshadowing of what is to come this year!
