I know of 2 different loops from Disneyland's Enchanted Tiki Room and/or Tahitian Terrace Loops. Nobody seems to know much about any of these loops. The first one is labeled as the "original lanai" loop. It is long (40 or 60 mins) and I think it's actually a shorter set of track that loops 2 maybe 3 times. They all seem to be needle drops of Arthur Lyman music (maybe more). Does anybody know anything about this track? When it played or where? Did the Tahitian Terrace loop copy the Tiki Room loop? Also, there is a second loop floating around. This one is shorter (about 15 mins?) and features Hawaiian sounding tracks. I know that these are the tracks that currently play outside the Tiki Room. I don't know if they were needle dropped or recorded especially for Disney. What makes me think that they might be original recordings is that one (or 2) of the tracks is part of the "Flavor of Hawaii" film presented in the queue. Anybody have any more info on either of these tracks? Are these more loops? Where did each play? When? Thanks in advance.

I am sorry because I don't have any info about the Disneyland Tiki Room, being unfamiliar with Disneyland. However, I had a related request having to do with the Walt Disney World Tiki Room, so I thought maybe it might belong here.

I am looking for the music that used to be played after the WDW Tiki preshow ended and as one walked through the doors of the Tiki Room. It was all drums, made you want to dance into the room. I don't know if it is still being used with the "new" Tiki Room show.

Does anyone know if this song has been released?
Thanks!
 
Aloha!

Nemo, the piece to which you are referring is part of the whole "Claude Birdbrain" preshow that played from the early days, when the Florida Citrus Growers presented the "Tropical Serenade." The two birds were voiced by Dallas McKenna and Sebastian Cabot. Cabot would say, "have a good show! A real Topical Serenade!" and the drums would start, and the waterfall curtain would close.

It is not being used in the "New Management" show.

Wow, thanks a lot Jeff!

Is the old WDW preshow available in any form? I have some files of Tiki Room preshows, but they're unfamiliar to me, so I assume they're from Disneyland.
 
Aloha again, Nemo:

I had a beautiful MP3 of that, but somehow, I deleted it by accident. I know, I know, tell me about it.

The tiki gods didn't want me to have it, I guess.
