Fire at Tiki Room Forces Attraction to Close

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).
