Fire at Tiki Room Forces Attraction to Close
The Enchanted Tiki Room attraction at the Magic Kingom will remain closed for an unknown period of time, following a fire on January 12.
According to local media, a small fire in the attic of the attraction was extinguished by fire sprinklers at around 5:30pm on Wednesday, January 12, 2011. Disney and firemen evacuated the area, but re-opened the surrounding rides, shows and restaurants a short time later.
It is rumored that one or more of the Audio Animatronic birds were damaged by the fire or sprinkler water, thus preventing the show from re-opening. Disney has not made an official announcement regarding the extent of the damage, nor have they given an estimate on when the show will re-open (if ever).
