Wow, great colors! They sure did jump the shark by adding those Characters! Even in safari garb they look woefully out of place.

I would trade Aladdin's Slum to get the Tahitian Terrace back, even with the Characters.

Long ago I used to run and read a bunch of animation blogs. This one looks pretty cool, I'll have to start reading again. Some where I have a pic of me, about 5yrs old, with an unknown dwarf. We've never been able to figure out which one it was. Was there an 8th Dwarf, nondescript?

I dined at the Tahitian Terrace and can say that it was a great place to eat and the show was fantastic. The entire setting was able to transport you to a different world, a true Oasis in the middle of the chaos. Someone should tell Disney to bring it back and forget Aladdin's Oasis.
I guess I just did.

That Goofy picture was so cool! Sorry to hear that place closed in 1993.
