The Tropical Serenade (a.k.a. The Enchanted Tiki Birds) was a “must-see” during my family’s yearly visits to Walt Disney World in the 1970s. It was my niece (who was a year older than me) who insisted that this be the first attraction we always experienced (I went for the Jungle Cruise as our second). As the years went by, I appreciated the attraction more and more. By the early 1990s, I stumbled across Martin Denny reissue CDs, fell in love with exotica music, and my path was set.

By the early to mid-1990s, Florida’s version of The Tiki Room had fallen out of favor. The Sunshine Tree Terrace was usually relatively quiet — Dole Whips and Citrus Swirls had not been made trendy.

Which comes to how this recording was made. The speakers playing this music, which served both as the background to the Tropical Serenade’s pre-show and the Sunshine Tree Terrace’s queue, were placed relatively high up in the Terrace’s roofline. It was a relatively quiet day, so a group of us huddled around a garbage can conveniently located under the speaker. I attached an extension cable to the Radio Shack microphone I was using and tossed it up into the rafters. Within two tries, it was nicely nestled next to the speaker.

Since it’s an omnidirectional microphone, besides the music, you’ll hear touches of the pre-show bleed through, plus a little crowd noise, and the sound of the wind chimes that were offered for sale across the way at the Tiki Tropic Shop. Who knows what other things you may find!

Sony MZ-1 MiniDisc recorder
