Yes. Push suddenly felt the need to spend more time with the garbage pails.
Remember when they thought they'd add that Eddie Murphy AA to the Haunted Mansion? And how badly that movie (and idea) turned out to be?
Yeah. This is a lot like that.
I hear Push is now a ride operator at Dollywood.
Was Disney really going to put a Eddie Murphy AA in the Haunted Mansion or is that just a fan made rumor? Is there any documentation from Disney on it?
No no, this was a rumor (much like this Dwayne Johnson thing) where some speculation and rumoring got wildly out of hand...and luckily it never did have anything to it...
I'm saying this is kinda like that...
So I saw the Enchanted Tiki room show recently for the first time in a few years and I have to say I think the show is still quite charming. I think all of the songs work except the one that the white girlie birdies sing. It's long and it kind of drags. I think if they cut out that song and replaced it with something else the show would be better for it. Some of the banter between the four hosts is a little annoying but it's cool in the sense that it takes you back to a bygone era.
It gets you out of the sun and away from people for about 20 minutes, so it's okay in my book.
The Tiki Room is like a classic old Hollywood movie: still somewhat entertaining, a little bit charming, kind of fun in a campy way, yet corny all at the same time. I wouldn't miss the current set up one bit if they took it out.
Actually, what I wish they would do is covert it into the tiki restaurant as the space was originally planned.
I don't know how much space is behind it, not much I'm betting. It would be cool, but I think its too small to be a restaurant at this point. Imagine it, the line would be out the door with 2-4 hour wait times. Unless of course they combine it with Aladdin and make it one big restaurant...
Of course not - they have to see if the movie is a hit first! (Tomorrowland/Haunted Mansion)
A restaurant keeping the flavor of the show would be a great way to keep it relevant and also be a nice nod to the past. They could play one of the songs every 15 minutes (AAs included) and still use all of the war chant / rain effects randomly. Throw in some decent Polynesian theme park food and (gasp) some non virgin Mai tais and it could be great. I don't even think the room would need much reworking.
You're probably right, especially with today's crowds. They could add some room by annexing the old Tahitian Terrace real estate next door though or maybe add a second floor.
It could be fun, right? At least then I'd have a good reason to be in there besides getting out of the sun or to take a nap.
Yeah it would be really cool.
* I meant to say throw in some decent theme park Polynesian FOOD
They would likely have to tear the whole thing down if they wanted to add a second floor. But who knows, I'd be all for a restaurant with a show. However I think its more likely in the rumored FL expansion with a BoG type restaurant.
One of the many things I appreciate about classic Haunted Mansion is that it's relatively intact. Sure, they added a poor projection of Renée Zellweger to the attic and made some other minor stupid alterations. That being said, while it is changed to a completely unrelated movie for a brutal 5 months that always test my sanity, the classic Mansion is, as I said, relatively intact. It's not like when you ride Pirates and all that movie crap in the ride just pulls you out of the experience because you know deep down that it's wrong.
If they add The Rock to the Jungle Cruise, I vow to destroy the animatronic and be imprisoned.
I know it's just speculation- but I really doubt Disney would add a Dwayne animatronic. The movie would have to be a smash hit, and the character equally popular.
What's more likely is they take the opportunity to refresh the ride- update the effects, add in a few new jokes, and add some references to the film.
The easiest improvement one can make,to the Tiki Room that will greatly improve it would be to replace "Let's All Sing Like the Birdies Sing". Maybe with something that has appeal to someone older than 3.
I agree, that's the one the white girl birds sing right? I think even if they just cut that segment with no replacement it would be an improvement. It also feels long and drags.
I love the show just the way it is (and I am sooooooooooooooooo much older than 3), BUT (and having never seen the New Management show or the Stitch version in Tokyo) I think it would make sense to replace "Birdies" with something like the Ohana song that opened the Lilo and Stitch TV series. It's catchy, upbeat, not overplayed and could still use the Bird-Mobile. Or maybe a cute re-write of "You're Welcome" from Moana.
