Subject: Imagineering head on Tiki Room rehab

A Laughing Place message-board poster ran into Marty Sklar, the head of Disney Imagineering, at Disneyland's Tiki Room, and had a conversation about the upcoming Tiki Room refurb:
We talked briefly about The Tiki Room, about John Hench and Rolly Crump, and he confirmed the rehab, the roof being in particularly bad shape, and that the birds need a pretty extensive rehab.

'They used to bring the birds up to Imagineering and we'd refurbish them. Now, they do them here, and not often enough,' he said.

The Cast Member who introduced the show did an excellent job, she just did the spiel with enthusiasm and professionalism.

As we were walking out, I walked past Marty Sklar and he said 'It's still a good show isn't it?'
