When the Enchanted Tiki Room premiered in 1963, not even an E-ticket could get you in. The attraction had its own special tickets, priced at 75 cents a piece.
Walt Disney put his own money into creating the attraction, hence calling it Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room.
This was the first attraction in the park that contained audio animatronics, creating a new generation of attractions in the park. ▓ⓣⓐⓖⓢ▓
