Jessica C. (NDI#21) (81 Posts)

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!

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.
