The Disney Park Blog is the companion blog for all Disney Parks news. They offer an up to the minute account of anything that might be happening at the moment or in the future of the parks operation.
So when some unofficial sites like WDWNT started flying rumors about the Tiki Room closing and converting into a Moana experience, Disney Park Blog was forced to make the following statement:
“A little birdie told us there are some rumors flying around about our beloved Tiki birds at Walt Disney World Resort. We’re sorry that our fans are being fed incorrect information by unscrupulous sources. While “toucan” play at that game, we deal in facts here at the Disney Parks Blog. Although we won’t address every rumor, we want to set the record straight: there are no plans for our feathered friends to fly the coop any time soon. We’re constantly evolving our stories, but these birds will continue entertaining our guests at the Magic Kingdom Park just as they have done since 1971.”
And then they added some fun Tiki Room FACTS:
“If you want to put a feather in your own cap, here are the top five things to know and share with your friends about Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room:
