Who, in your opinion, are the really good Hawaiian and swing/tiki lounge artists, old and new?   I'm always looking for a new listen.    I have Hawaiian All-Stars, and Iz on my playlist, but I'd love…Continue

The Enchanted Tiki Room, Walt Disney World, Pre-1997


I first saw this show when I was five years old.   This beloved Disney attraction was the basis of my life-long love of parrots and birds, as well as Hawaiiana and Polynesian themes.


I have never been to Hawaii, but it is going to happen.   I feel sometimes that I am destined for Hawaii.

I too was entranced by the Disney World Polynesian attraction...its probably not a coincidence that I also fell in love with Lilo & Stitch (I know, I'm not the only that cried during the Ohana scene).  That said, my husband started a tiki collection a few years ago and as I started to learn more about the Poly-Pop culture I became increasingly fascinated by it.  I've recently joined a tiki group here in my hometown and am looking forward to learning more about the fashion, decor, and especially the cocktails.

Hah!   I always furtively wipe away tears when Tia Carrere sings "Aloha Oe"...

I have a smallish collection of Hawaiian, swing, and rockabilly music, mostly on iTunes.   "Facing Future", by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole is one of my favorites.   Although it isn't really what I think of as 'Tiki' (that Hawaiian lounge swing mai-tai-cocktails vibe), it's lovely music.

A few years ago I was getting ready to have surgery on my ankle, so since I wouldn't be able to drive for a while, my husband and I decided to create and "Oasis" out on our patio. Now it has become on obsession......bamboo fencing, tiki masks (bought in Old Town San Diego for dirt cheap), lighted water fall, birds, and tropical plants! Now we call it our "Tiki Terrace" it truly has become an extra room for our townhouse. The sounds of Martin Denny Exotica wafts over the breeze!

Helen Alice, thank you so much for sending out that video! I loved it! It also added some great movies to my "must-watch" list :).
