Non-Elvis drawing of the day
Although I am up to Elvis #273 and counting, here's something a little different. Here we see Walt Disney with Tiki Room parrot Juan, (cousin of Jose the Tiki show host). The Enchanted Tiki Room opened in Disneyland in June of 1963 and was the first attraction to feature Audio-Animatronics, which shortly after paved the way for other classics such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion.
This year The Enchanted Tiki Room is celebrating its 45th anniversary. I'll be visiting Disneyland once again in 2 days and will more than likely blow a bunch of money on some kind of commemorative 45th Anniversary Tiki Room merchandise that I don't need or have the space for.
