Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room (Disneyland)

*Sung lyrics in bold.

(Pre-show movie.)

NARRATOR
Aloha! And welcome to the natural beauty, wonder, and adventure of our islands. Every day, the gentle rain paints our landscapes with lush vegetation and a colorful variety of exotic flowers. Their alluring beauty and intoxicating fragrance fill our island paradise with enchantment. No less enchanting are the many varieties of brilliantly-colored tropical birds that entertain with delightful song. This incredible bounty of natural beauty was born of the blending of rich volcanic soil with the warm, tropical climate. Among our tasty treasures are flavorful fruits such as bananas, mangos, papayas, and of course, the pineapple. This king of fruits was once so rare and valuable that it was available only to kings. That is, until about a century ago, when a visionary came to our islands. Jim Dole’s idea of making our pineapple available to every family in America seemed, at the time, an impossible dream. But thanks to dedication and innovation, not only did his dream come true, but it grew into the largest producer of fruit in the world! Here in the islands, the pineapple is a symbol of hospitality. That is why it is always a part of the traditional island feast we call “pa’ina.” At a pa’ina, you’ll always find a happy gathering of friends and family—known here as ‘ohana. During these celebrations, our ‘ohana shares laughter, stories, and favorite recipes. And nothing brings out the taste of our tropical paradise like pineapple! So from our ‘ohana to yours, we invite you to enjoy this king of fruits and a taste of the islands wherever you call home. Aloha!

(Pre-show narration.)

MAUI
My name is Maui. Natives call me the Mighty One. I tamed the playful sun and gave my people time. Now they set their clocks by mine, for I am Tropic Standard Time.

KORO
Aloha! (Speaks Hawaiian.) I am Koro—Midnight Dancer. Today my magic feet no move—my head sore! But last night, all tiki gods have big time—zow luau. When drums begin to pound, my head full. Big sound!

RONGO
(Chants in Hawaiian.) Me Rongo—God of Agriculture. My land so good to me, I got time for sport. I fly kite. Me number one kite-flyer. Too bad I don’t have key—then me, I find electricity.

PELE
I am Pele: Goddess of Fire and Volcanoes. Some say I torment poor Ngendei, the Earth Balancer. For when my violent temper rises, the Earth trembles on its foundation!

NGENDEI
Legends say I’m balancing the Earth—but sad to say, I’m just hanging on.

PELE
I’m the one who’s really sad! When I smile it comes out mad!

TANGAROA-RU
They call me Tangaroa-Ru, the East Wind.

HINA KULUUA
And I am Hina, Goddess of Rain.

TANGAROA-RU
We often travel together, wind and rain—through tropic lands across the seven seas!

HINA KULUUA
Come closer so that you may see what magic there is in fantasy.

TANGAROA
I am Tangaroa—Father of all Gods and Godesses. Here in this land of enchantment, I appear before you as a mighty tree. Stand back! Oh, mystic powers, hear my call: from my limbs let new life fall.

ANNOUNCER
(Speaks Hawaiian.) Ladies and Gentlemen, come with us to a world of joyous songs and wondrous miracles—Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room.

(Guests enter the Tiki Room. Cast member gives spiel and then wakes up Jose.)

JOSE
Ah, buenos dias, señorita. My siestas are getting are getting chorter and chorter. Oh, look at all the people! Welcome to Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room. Hey, Michael, mi amigo! Pay attention—it’s showtime.

PIERRE
Mon ami, I am always ready, as you say, to put on ze show. (Whistles.) Oh pardon, madame, that whistle was for my good friend Fritz.

FRITZ
Ach tu lieber! I almost fell out of mein upper perch. Glad to see you all aboard—uh, ashore—or—(Laughs.) Verever you are! Mein goodness, you’re all shtaring at us. We better shtart the show rolling!

Wait! Wait! We forgot to wake up the glee club!

(Whistle blows, followed by loud squawking from the birds.)

JOSE
Ole! Ole! It’s showtime!

You lucky people, you!

We’d be in the audience too!

MICHAEL
I sing so beautiful—I should sing solo!

JOSE
Si… So low we can’t hear you!

PIERRE
My voice may not be so marvelous, but my profile is out of zis world!

FRITZ
Jawohl, but the trouble is it’s not far enough out of this world. Isn’t that right, Herr Schmidt? Oh-ho, I see—Schmidt has no hair!

JOSE
Mi amigos, stop the clucking. You sound like a bunch of old hens. There’s a lot of birds waiting to go on. For instance…

MICHEL
The boys in the back are kamikaze.

JOSE
Because of their claws?

MICHAEL
No—because they’re macaws!
And our fine feathered friend is a jolly toucan.
And two can sound better than one toucan can.

JOSE
The bird of paradise is an elegant bird.
It likes to be seen, and it loves to be heard.
Most little birdies will fly away,
But the Tiki Room birds are here everyday.

CHORUS
In the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room,
In the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room.

JOSE
All the birds sing words,

MICHAEL
And the flowers croon,

CHORUS
In the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room!

JOSE
Our magnificent production is yet to come,
So strum the guitar, and beat the drum.
We’ve been a hit, and we know you adore us,
So come on, and join us in another chorus!

CHORUS
In the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room,
In the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room.

JOSE
A little softer!

CHORUS
All the birds sing words, and the flowers croon,
In the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room!

JOSE
A little louder!

CHORUS
In the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room,
In the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room.
All the birds sing words, and the flowers croon,
In the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room!

(Song ends.)

And now, señors and señoritas, please place your eyes into the center—of the room, that is. We present the enchanted fountain.

FRITZ
Ach, ja! And the wunderbar bird mobile… Which has birds on it. And it goes round and round. Und dat’s why they call it a “bird mobile.”

MICHAEL
Look, here come the girls!

PIERRE
Madames and monsieur—introducing the lovely ladies of the ensembles. Just like the Follies Bergère with all the feathers. There’s Collette! Allo, Collette. Suzette! Allo, Mimi! Gigi! Fifa! Hehe, oh Fifi!

JOSE
I wonder what happened to Rosita…

(Tiki idols begin drumming and chanting. The flowers join in for a reprise of “Hawaiian War Chant.” Song climaxes in rain and thunder.)

FRITZ
Ach, somebody has schtolen my thunder!

JOSE
I think someone has left the chower running.

MICHAEL
Be careful, me fine friends. The gods have been angered by all the celebratin’! But, me buckos, every cloud has a silver lining.

Monsieurs et madames, it’s time to say “adieu.” But we hope you will always remember the amazing things which happened here in Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room.
