    Any word on the actual closing of this or a timeline of closure (or is this still just a rumor)?

    Just curious. How fast did the proposal process for the closing of GMR?

    Capital punishment was invented for people who would even propose to close Tiki.

    (And Toad. And Horizons. And UoE, and GMR, and)

    I'm pretty sure it'll still be open then as it is today.

    I'll pass, do not want. Let's hope this proposal dies a tragic death.

    When you say influence, is it Tiki Birds featuring Moana elements? Or is it Moana's Magic Hut of Full Blown IP Intrusion?

    Sounds like an improvement to me. Tiki Room is a major snooze-fest. Classic or not. Absolutely none of my friends I've taken to WDW for the first time have ever enjoyed it.

    It seems to still be in development as a proposal.

    They should just go all in and get the rock to voice the new show. They can have him record his speech for the Hall of Presidents too since he's rumored to be running in 2020;)

    Personally I wouldn't mind seeing Moana incorporated into what is already there. I know it's sacreligious to say, but I find this latest version to be really boring. It's one of the very few attractions we didn't hit during our recent ten day stay. I know it is a classic and still enjoyed by many, but you really can't blame Disney for finding this show to be underutilized.

    My main concern here is similar to the Gran Fiesta Tour, where there is the possibility you could make a smaller attraction too popular. As much as my family likes Moana, I can't imagine waiting an hour for a five minute show.
