The Agrabah Bazaar next to Disney World’s Enchanted Tiki Room houses all the tiki-related merch and is also a good place to loiter during impromptu Florida rainstorms.
Of course, twenty minutes later the sun is blazing down so I was able to justify this Pele hat purchase as a necessary travel expense. Could this baseball cap be considered another convergence of tiki and America’s pastime?
Most of these items made their way west over the summer to the Adventureland Bazaar at Disneyland’s Enchanted Tiki Room, but this was the first time that I’d spotted them.
The store was stocked with the above hats, shirts and magnets, but they also had this cartoon tiki logo on hurricane and shot glasses. Anybody else find it odd that Disney sells shot glasses? Anyway…
I thought the Magic Carpet ride adjacent to the store was very neat—a golden camel spits at you! The movie “Aladdin” gets big billing in Disney World’s Adventureland, as you can see from this ride, Agrabah Bazaar and Iago’s unwelcome presence in the Enchanted Tiki Room. Gotta take the bad with the good, I guess.
