The Tiki Room is a good example. It's already fallen to a "trendy" overhaul in WDW, how much longer until it falls at Disneyland?
My reasoning for this isn't because I don't enjoy said attraction, but the complete opposite, I LOVE IT! My concern comes from the outdated jokes, old audio that keeps getting cleaned and some songs cut out, and the lack of interaction from guests anymore.
I know I feel like the only one who sings, whistles, claps, and stands up at the end.
The refurbish made for the 50th I feel was a little short handed. YES it did get a major re-working and YES things are better, but maybe it's just that kid in me that still wants everything to be magical. (meaning) not knowing how everything works and believing everything they throw at me.
Could the birds be "revieled" instead of sitting dark and without movement untill the show starts? Could the audio be re-recorded to update jokes, or just help emurse the audiance in the fact that these birds do sing words. Maybe some (not alot) Roz technology. "ack, pardon madame that whistle was for my good friend fritz!" Direct that to someone in particular. That joke flys over so many people's heads. (no pun intended) "ack, I see fritz has no hair" Is a reference to the original Slue Foot Sue's Golden Horseshoe Revue. Let's update shall we?
But I guess it's a double edged sword. How do you stay true to the original but change some outdated items?
To me the audio now (as it does sound better) sounds like a recording. I would love to hear the individual voices come from the individual characters. (not just the lead four) PLUS I feel the audio is just too quiet for such small room filled with so many "entertainers". The room should be just bussling.
Let's run with this.
