I can never get enough images of Disneyland's classic "Enchanted Tiki Room". I'm so glad that it is still entertaining guests over at the entrance to Adventureland.
Presumably this was taken by somebody waiting to get into the pre-show area. You can see Uti (next to the Tiki Room shield), standing in that stylized canoe (which makes sense, since she is the goddess of fishing). As for the rest of the scene, I can't help noticing the amazing variety of materials; thatched roofs, bamboo, vines and plants, hand-carved elements, painted decoration… and then there are the strange and exotic shapes of the buildings, so unusual when compared to right-angled Western architecture.
Inside the pre-show area, our photographer only took one measly picture, of the tiki god Rongo. Here's what he says: "Me Rongo; god of agriculture. My land so good to me, I got time for sport. Me number one kite flyer. Too bad I don't have key; then me, I find electricity!". In earlier years he also sang the praises of United Airlines flights to Hawaii.
….On a side note, my goofy post that was intended for April 1st is just not working out. The idea that I came up with turned out to be way more difficult than I had anticipated it (I've been working on it - off and on - for months already). So for those of you who were looking forward to the day after tomorrow (there might be a few of you), I may as well break the bad news now, because I'm not going to be posting anything special that day. If I could physically crumple up my digital file and throw it in the trash, I would do it!
Maybe I'll do a "Best of April 1st" post.
