As many of you know, I was deeply distraught over Disneyland Hotel’s choice to remove their waterfalls a few months ago in preperation for their revamp of the hotel’s grounds. Being there on the last day of the falls was one of the saddest Disney moments in recent memory. But I will say this – today’s news cheers me up a bit… here’s what we have to look forward to, from Disney’s Parks Blog:
Inspired by Adventurelands from Disney Parks worldwide and the nostalgic Tahitian Terrace restaurant, located in Adventureland from 1962-1993, Tangaroa Terrace will immerse guests in a tropical setting with tiki torches and themed music. The name of the restaurant was borrowed from one of the tiki gods at the Enchanted Tiki Room. The fast-casual dining experience will include island-inspired food and beverages. The new bar, named after Trader Sam, the infamous Jungle Cruise â€œheadâ€ salesman, will open adjacent to Tangaroa Terrace. Trader Samâ€™s unique lounge experience will include interactive experiences with a bit of Disney magic you wonâ€™t want to miss.
At least we lost those amazing, magical falls to something that seems worthy. Still, what suits a Tiki-themed environment better than awesome waterfalls with coves to explore all around them?!
