It was announced last week at D23’s Destination D that the “Enchanted Tiki Room: Under New Management” would be closed permanently and reopened as simply “Enchanted Tiki Room”.
The “Under New Management” version, which was closed suddenly in January after a fire in the structure, is currently being remade to be reminiscent of the original show from when the park opened in 1971, then called “Tropical Serenade.” All of the classic characters will still be featured, including Pierre and Jose. Whether Zazu and Iago will be seen at all is unclear, details have not been announced. What is known is that it will be similar, but not exactly like the original version of the show. Whatever Disney does, it is sure to include references to some classic lines just as the show always has.
This updated version of the attraction will be completed and debut during the summer.
