    I have never seen the show and I have heard lots of different opinion.

    Do you love or hate the show and do you prefer the new show to the old show.

    Never seen it, just doesn't appeal to us.
    Maybe one day if it's pouring with rain and we need shelter for a while....

    I love the catchy song :)

    Also, really enjoy being in an a/c room, sitting down for a change!

    I enjoyed the original and didn't like the updated version. Now that they have dumped the annoying Iago, I enjoy seeing it again.

    I don't consider it a love hate relationship. It is nice to get out of the heat for a while and I much prefer the original show to the one with Iago and I'm glad it is back.

    You've never seen it?! :eek:

    I liked both versions. :yes: The original was nice, but the remake was fun too. It's something that was really unique when it first came out, but now it's a tried and true classic.

    You really need to give it a try, Wendy just to say you did if for nothing else. :D

    The first time I ever saw this was in the mid-80's at DL. I'll admit to being a little nervous at first. Then, when they turned out the lights, I was actually frightened! But once the show started, I was fine- well, until the tikis started moving their eyes and mouth. Eerie!

    Then at the end when you hear the thunder and you see the lighting and rain in the window, I actually thought a storm had come up. Was I sure surprised to walk out into California sunshine! Remember, I was new to Disney magic! That was my very first Disney park visit!

    I cant believe that I have never gone in to the Tiki Room. I have seen so many people mention that they hate it that I have never bothered. I am going to do it this year though as I have now watched it on Youtube.:D

    I like it a lot. I haven't been for quite a while, and honestly I've only seen the "Under New Management" show with Iago and Zazu, but I really enjoyed that one. I grew up with Disney sing-along videos that featured "The Tiki Tiki Tiki Room" and "Let's All Sing Like The Birdies Sing", so even before I'd ever visited one of the parks, it had sort of a special place in my heart. :) Really excited to see the original show now that it's back! It will be brand-new for me, and I know everyone says they prefer the original show better.

    Please put me down for a "like". Although we don't visit each time, we have gone quite a bit and I like the nostalgic feel of the place. Takes you back to the 1960's (at least the classic version did)

    Tried it for the first time last year.
    Would rather sit on IASW for a whole day.

    Won't be visiting again this year :D :lol:

    I'm sort of surprised how many people dislike it too! It was always my understanding that it was widely adored by most Disney fans!

    I like it. Not my favorite, but it just doesn't feel like a complete trip to Disney unless we hit the Tiki Room. I really didn't like the updated version, so I'm thrilled that it's back to the older version.

    The original Tiki Room at Disneyland was built to be a restaurant and you can still see some vestiges of that. The restaurant idea did no work out though and it was transformed into the attraction that we see today.
