    Tiki Enchanted Tiki Birds With Chips For Adding Your Name Into Songs They Croon

    How cool would it be to have the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki birds (and other characters) croon your name (and everybody with you) as they sing. They could of course accomplish this through intergrated chips. Would you be more likely to sing along, or to blush? Just how would you react?

    I can see something like this happening if MyMagic+ ever came to the West Coast.

    I would walk out. I would think it'd be Disney at its nadir -- a Disney that had turned from using technology to delight hundreds of millions to using it for in-your-face marketing that panders for profits from the few at the expense of taking everyone else in the audience out of the show.

    But hey, look on the bright side -- at least there's no chance they'd ever pull such pathetic MyMagicMarketing crap at Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln!

    Or would they...?


    The lights dim... President Lincoln rises majestically from his chair... and he speaks:

    The world has never had a good definition of the word liberty. The American people, just now, are much in want of one. Don't you agree, Sidney Melon, who I see is visiting today with his wife Elaine and their charming children Ruth and Sid Jr., from beautiful Oshkosh, Wisconsin? We all declare for liberty. But in using the same word, we do not all mean the same thing. What constitutes the bulwark of our liberty and independence? Yes, I'm asking you, Bob and Doris Leopold of San Diego, proud Premium Passholders for the last fifteen years, ladies and gentlemen how about that! As I was saying, it is not our frowning battlements, our bristling sea coasts. These are not our reliance against tyranny. And speaking of reliance, let's have a warm round of applause for Fred and Ginny Sawyer of Irvine, who just announced their engagement! Congratulations from your 16th President, and be sure to stop by the Emporium for your free Duffy Bear! (Tell 'em "Honest Abe sent you" and you'll get 10% off the $9.95 fee to have your name stitched on it.) No, folks, our reliance is in the love of liberty, which God has planted in our bosoms....

    E.T. Has been saying guests' names for over 20 years at Universal. (in multiple languages, I might add.)Of course, there's a LOT of room for improvement as far as the names being intelligible. And a lot of advances have taken place since that ride first opened around 1990.

    Ever since Eisner ripped off Universal's "Ride the Movies" paradigm by proclaiming "Disneyland is all about turning Movies into Rides," they've been edging closer and closer to becoming another Universal. They may as well toss in the towel and rip off Universal's guest names idea as well.

    Of course, being Disney, they'll find a way to upcharge for it.

    I could see how this could be appealing, but I would rather it not occur.

    I would tolerate if they had the birds sing "Happy Birthday" and anyone with a birthday could submit their name and have the birds sing it (all in one song, not over and over a la Small World). I think kids (and myself) would get a kick out of it, but I wouldn't want to see one of their original songs tainted with guest names.

    Even then, I'd prefer that wonderful show be left alone.

    I think it would be better if it were something outside the actual show, for instance, if the duties fell to the Tiki Gods in the courtyard or some new animatronic birds outside in the courtyard.

    Otherwise I could see it getting to be problematic - you might have the Tiki birds saying a zillion names during the show, or you might have people (especially little kids) feeling left out because the birds didn't say *their* names (anyone here remember Romper Room and how disappointing it was when they didn't say your name on the Magic Mirror segment? LOL!).

    This is a part of Mymagic +. But I don't think it will be implemented on large audience attractions like the Tiki Room. But when your headrest on Space says frollofan prepare to launch, that is workable.

    So, it'll be something like Tiki Room Under New Management?
