Merchandise: Tiki Themed Ceramics to Celebrate the Enchanted Tiki Room’s 50th Anniversary

There’s been a celebration this summer of one of Disney’s most classic attractions: The Enchanted Tiki Room. We’ll have a post soon detailing the celebration first hand, but first up, we’ve got some merchandise to talk about!

First appearing at Disneyland in 1963, this feather-filled confection of song is now observing its 50th anniversary.

To mark the occasion, Disney has released a series of ceramic kitchen items reminiscent of the attraction’s Polynesian Island mood.

Among the wares are several items that would be perfect serving pieces for your next home luau. (You’re planning one now, aren’t you?)

There’s a chalice-like bowl called the “Rongo Enchanted Tiki Bowl.” I’m not sure if this piece, designed by Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily, is meant to hold chips and nuts, or whether it’s a goblet for an especially thirsty sailor.

I’m thinking that if you’re out of pineapples and are serving lapu lapus, then this would make a fair alternative vessel.

The “Luau Bowl” could be for chips, or it could hold the food and water bowls for Fifi or Fido.

My favorite pieces are the tiki totem mugs, available in two styles.

Both mugs have removable “hats” so you can fill them with your rum-based concoctions, but there are small holes in the top of the hats making it easy to enjoy your beverage with a long straw.

Also part of the collection is a coaster set designed by Shag.

All these items are available throughout the Disney parks and resorts on both coasts.

Have they made their way onto your must-purchase list? Would you actually drink out of the mugs, or just use them for display? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.

    Those ceramics are nice and all, but where I can get a print of that amazing poster?

  2. Lynne says:

    Finally! Merchandise that isn’t princess themed! I hope the Tiki mugs and the coasters are still available when I go in October.

  3. Oh dear, these are too cute! Those Shag coasters might need to come home with me after my next visit to the parks! :)

    Thanks Erin! I’ll be in WDW in a couple weeks. Where can I find these? Are these pics from MK or the Polynesian?

    @ Julie B I’m not sure if it’s available as a poster, but I bought it as part of a three piece set of retro panels. They are metal and approx 8″ x 12″. The other two are The Haunted Manison and the Monorail System. I love them all! I think I bought them in the Art of Disney store at Downtown Disney, can’t remember for sure. Hope you find it!

    What are retail prices? People are asking 65 for the mug and 75 for the coasters on eBay!

  7. Jennifer T says:

    Yes, prices please! And location? We are leaving for WDW in 25 days and these have to come home with me.

    I like those tiki items, but unfortunately they aren’t available on the Disney store online site. Too bad.

  9. JennyC says:

    i NEED those!!!!! They are waaay 2 freaking adorable to pass up!

    I bought the coasters on eBay as I thought they were only available in disneyland. I was there in January and it will be quite awhile before I can head out west again so it’s good to know both resorts have them. I plan to go to wdw in October and would like to see them in person.

    I didn’t pay that much more than retail for the coasters thanks to eBay bucks and a seller 20% sale. The coasters retail for $29.95 before tax. Here is where I first heard about these items. They include prices in it.

    We went to the merchandise event in Disneyland and came home with both bowls, the Pele mug (and yes we will totally drink out of it!), and a ton more goodies. Fantastic!

  12. Niki M says:

    Does anyone have pricing for the mugs? and are they dishwasher safe? I would totally drink a tropical beverage out of those!

  13. Glenn says:

    I’ve looked for a tiki room t-shirt for years since the tiki room is one of my favorite attractions. Will they have t-shirts soon?

  14. Janice Murray says:

    I am looking for a really nice Mens Shirt (just like Mickey Aloha button down shirt) with a Tiki Bird theme in colors suitable for a man NOT ORANGE! Mickey Aloha is my son’s favorite shirt but unfortunately I can not find anything other than Mickey Aloha. Do you offer nice shirts with Tiki Birds? He has too many teeshirts.

    Thank You,

    Janice
