It's time for some Polynesian fun at the Tahitian Terrace! The Terrace opened in 1962, pre-dating the Enchanted Tiki Room by about a year. It was a popular restaurant that is fondly remembered for the fantastic dinner show, featuring singing, fire dancers, and lovely hula dancers.
Here's one of the dancers; you can just tell that she is telling a story with her graceful gestures. I like the long strands of tiny seashells that she wears around her neck. "Pearly shells, from the ocean…"
Why would you eat anywhere else in Disneyland?? I'll bet that all of the young male cast members liked to head over here on their breaks. I wonder if that flowered fabric is the official United Airlines pattern that occasionally shows up on ebay?
I don't understand the significance of the flaming coconuts, but on the other hand, who is even looking at them! Oh Tahitian Terrace, why can't you come back?
