The latest round of Enchanted Tiki Room merchandise from Disney goes on sale next Friday, April 7, at midnight (that’s late Thursday/early Friday) west coast time. The items are part of the final round of items celebrating Disneyland’s 50th Anniversary. Perhaps the most highly anticipated item is the one pictured above, a full-scale replica of the drummers that play up in the rafters of the Enchanted Tiki Room. These were cast from an actual original drummer, and the detail is amazing. I was able to see one in person a couple months ago, and the paint job is fantastic. The drum is actually a small up-light, just like the ones in the Enchanted Tiki Room. The arms are not motored, but they are moveable, so crafty types could easily figure out a way to automate them. Only 1,000 have been produced.

Also going on sale are of course the replicas of the 1964 Enchanted Tiki Room Host Shirt and Hostess Dress. (There’s a whole saga behind that dress.) I still haven’t seen the final picture of me in the dress that will be used on the DisneyShopping website, I’ll get to see it Thursday night, but they used a picture of Kevin & me together (along with Bamboo Handbag!) for an ad — you can see it, along with all the other merchandise, on DizHub.com.

The non-tiki merchandise is also fab — the Monsanto House of the Future in particular is neat (it lights up!), and Kevin Kidney designed a shirt that uses vintage Disney signage that’s sure to sell out quickly. To place an order, visit DisneyShopping.com, or call (800) 237-5751. In the past, I think the phone operators haven’t had the new merch info as quickly as the website, so be prepared to try both if you’re itching to get your items orders ASAP.

    [...] The other item is this very rare original, vintage Enchanted Tiki Room Host Shirt, in green. This is the shirt that will be available in a href=”http://blog.humuhumu.com/2006/03/31/disney-enchanted-tiki-room-merchandise”>reproduction form next week from Disney, but there’s nothing like owning the original. The fabric pattern on the original shirt is a little bit smaller, and a little bit brighter. I prefer this green version to the purple version, which I’ve seen more often. [...]
