    Honestly what happened to having a variety of attractions Disney? God the more I read this thread the more angry and upset I get.

    It's sort of silly looking back at it, but Swiss Family Robinson (the Disneyland attraction and the film) were huge influences on me and my childhood love of bushcraft.

    As for Disneyland's Enchanted Tiki Room, we used to make fun of it as kids (we were from Hawaii and loved to laugh at touristy stuff), but we also never went to DL or DW without watching it once or twice. In some way, the attraction may have had an influence on my adult-years love of listening to Martin Denny and slinging down mai tais.

    As a fan of old school attractions Walt era, it's great to hear that CoP is not on the chopping block along with the Tiki Room, but it's very surprising nonetheless. I have trouble believing Disney would be worried to close anything considering how apathetic they've been towards these type of concerns. If they ingnore complaints about closing an E-Ticket attraction like ToT at DCA, then why would they care about something like that happening to a relatively smaller extent with CoP?

    It is still a horrible idea... PLease! we are already over saturated with meet and greet crap. Let's get some NEW attractions.. and no more overlays...the parks need additions...not just reworking older rides and not adding to the attraction count...

    Disney is just as ignorant and arrogant as the CEO guy in Avatar.

    For Nemo and Friends Searider they also overplayed one of their monorails. They go all out there.

    da Vinci's drawings are simplistic and laughable compared to the technology of today.

    Seriously, I have never seen anyone get up and walk out in WDW and I know that the Tiki Room worshipers in DL would probably hang anyone that did that from the nearest tree if they so much as looked toward the door. I have to wonder what DL and WDW some of you folks go too.

    Well, yes and no! It is never happening until it is actually happening. So far it is still GMR just the way it has always been. I may well be changed out, but, it hasn't happened yet, it is just that we have collectively, and possibly with good reason, accepted the statements of others as fact. Could be, but, who knows, things change everyday.

    Wow, really? Exaggerate much? I myself have walked out of Tiki. My special needs sister in law was scared by it and I had ti take her out. So, there is at least one time. I have to believe there are plenty of other people who have as well. When you use hyperbole like that, no one takes you seriously.

    Yet they form the foundation of many modern technologies so does their simplicity make them any less significant. No it does not

    The Tiki birds are the foundation of AA's. Which of course disney is deprecating in in favor of screenz because screenz are CHEAP!!!!

    OK, so since I have never seen anyone walk out (without cause) and you have walked out (with cause) I'm the one exaggerating about how people commonly walk out of the show because it is so bad? What hyperbole are you talking about? If you seriously think that the comment about the people at DL hanging someone for even looking at the door, then you kinda need to work on you humor receptors. Going back to the occasional departure, which I honestly do not remember ever seeing, is hardly an exaggeration, it is fact. I would, however, understand someone leaving for a good reason and it has nothing to do with popularity.

    ^^^This. I don't think very many people walk out of Tiki Birds because the show is bad. Maybe kids being freightened or needing to use the bathroom, but not just for poor show. There may be a group of people who skip it altogether because it's a show and not a ride. For some people ride count is all that matters.

    As much as I love the Tiki Birds, I have to admit that I've seen people walk out mid-show. It was the late 70's/early 80's during the now deleted "Offenbach" number which some felt was the dullest part of the show. When DLR refurbed their show, this section was also deleted.

    Probably won't get back to Walt Disney World for 3 to 4 years and I would LOVE to be able to go see the TiKi birds then! I have the
    song The birds all sing and the flowers croon as the ring tone for my daughter!
