I CANNOT FUCKING BELIEVE THIS
Eight years later this is STILL one of my favorite internet videos.
PUTTING YOUR FAVES TO SHAME
These are all
(or at least most)of Mickey and Minnie’s matching outfits from all Disney parks.
He comes on with his big, innocent farm boy routine, but I could see through that in a Peloponnesian minute.
I visit Carsland in Disneyland California to see just how authentic it is to the movie.

50 Years of Enchantment - Happy Anniversary, Enchanted Tiki Room!
50 years ago the first advanced Audio Animatronic figures were debuting before the public and marking a watershed moment in the history of themed entertainment. Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room opened for business on this day and boasted the science of space age technology to make a charming musical review come to life. Although rudimentary animated figures had been the star of other Disneyland shows such as the Jungle Cruise and the Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland, this was the first time mechanical ingenuity and “computerized” cues dictated the motions and music of a thematic show. Controlled through the electronic impulses of magnetic tapes, Jose, Fritz, Pierre, Michael and the now world famous cast of singing flowers, tikis, and birds were given a full range of motion and a rousing musical score to boot.
The Enchanted Tiki Room was the collaborative effort of such Imagineering greats such as Marc Davis, Harriet Burns, Claude Coats, the Sherman Brothers, and Thurl Ravenscroft. Their work and personal touch on the attraction has ensured it’s enduring popularity over these past 5 decades and the Enchanted Tiki Room’s place, not only in the Magic Kingdoms around the world, but in the upper echelon of thematic experiences.
Happy 50th, Tiki Room!
