SO funny how two people can think something was the biggest waste and someone else thinks it was amazing. I had this conversation with a friend about the movie Magic Mike, I want my $9 and 2 hours of my life back, she thought it was the greatest movie ever lol. I have never done the Tiki Room and based on this review my apprehensions about it seem just. Don't think I will be checking it out any time soon.

The Tiki Room is like IASW for us, something to get out of the heat for awhile! I will say we did use it to scare the crap out of our youngest son. He was about 5 when we went to WDW. He was afraid of thunderstorms at that time, so we took him to see the Tiki Birds. Needless to say he did not like it at all! Do you hink we were bad parents?!

Great updates, Jen!
Count me in on the ones who think if you have seen the Tiki birds once, that's more than enough. We did it once at DL and once at WDW, and I cannot be tempted to go back.

Pecos Bill is a instead! Burgers are yummy!!!

It has to be popular with someone or lse they wouldn't have spent all that money to refurb it. I do think it is a hit with many kids as well.

Thats too funny. I know Skip and I often have different views on Moives too.

I did the Prince Caspian thing though. The best part was the meet and greet. Everything els was....not so good.
I did hear they are making some sort of Jack Sparrow adventure there. I have yet to hear much about it or when it will open. I hear fall at one time, but so far nothing else.

I love your pictures from Splash. I totally get what you mean about taking pictures when you have a little time to kill. I entered the digital camera age kicking and screaming, but boy, I can't imagine life with film now! Just being able to snap pictures at will. When you are nervous. Or bored. Or just because!

Last saw the Tiki Birds in 2004-don't think my boys are in any rush to return, and there is so else to do...

I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed your meals at Pecos Bill. I felt your pain when you had to skip Columbia Harbor House, but Pecos Bill is a nice substitution. Like you said, biggest problem there is seating. It is always SO crowded!

Yes..I love digital....It's so hard to think back to the limited film days. I can remember going on trips and taking 3 rolls of film for the whole trip and really being careful on what i chose to shoot. And then they were crappy half the time anyways.

I knew you would feel my CH pain. I really wanted to go there, but it wasn't worth it to hear others gripe, so I decided something new wouldn't hurt.

You know that we are Pecos Bill's fans all the way! The toppings bar has a little bit of everything! I forgot to look...did you get the cheese sauce for dipping your fries in? Yummy!

Aww, I'm sorry that you didn't care for the new/old version of the Tiki birds. While it's not on the top of our must-see list, we do pop in if a show is about to start.

Love Pecos Bill! John says it's a must do once a trip. I do like the toppings too.

I do not think I've ever read a TR that has been Tiki Room positive. If it's totally dull, I'm just fine skipping it.

I too love that you take pictures along the way, I like the feeling that I'm walking along there. I need some Happy Place lately.

I totally kept thinking of you the whole time I was in there. I know you guys love this place...and I only new that the salad bowl would come out empty because of you too. Skip was so in love with the topping bar. There was a guy grilling onions and Skip was having a conversation with him too.
I did not get cheese for my fries...but thats not my thing. I'm a little weird. I like to dip my fries in a mayo/ketchup mix.

We were very happy with it....and the extra toppings really made my burger good.
I can remember planning my trips to WDW for Michael and Paige...oooh so many years ago...and reading birmbaums books. (before I had a computer even) and even back then the tikki room was not very highly recommended.

I like that I do take pictues along my walks...so I can remember where I went.

Loving all the pictures!

I really love CoP I love all the animatronics and the old scenes. We like to do it once every trip but River asked for it twice this time so I was all for it. We got stuck on it once this time and had to do the same room twice and I did take a picture the 2nd time we had to watch it but I didn't feel bad about that. Everyone was groaning they had to sit through it again.

I like the new old Tiki Room better than the new Tiki Room I like it mostly because its an original attraction. River did it the first time he went to WDW so now we have to do it every time but once a trip is enough. It always makes my neck hurt having to look up at the ceiling the whole time.

I can see Claire liking COP. And I know she likes the Tiki room. I, myself won't be rushing back to either.
