(Disney World, 1970s) This ultra-rare piece of Tiki Room history was purchased from an ex-cast member from Walt Disney World. She was given this bird upon retirement by her supervisor. The bird was removed from the show during a redress and update. Most of the animatronic hardware was recycled into the new show and the bird was crudely refitted for use as a desk ornament by the supervisor. Well-known Disney merchandise designers Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily restored the bird with fur, feathers and other items taken directly from Imagineering surplus material. The bird measures 18 in. (from bottom feather to top) and is in fine condition. An extremely rare and desirable item.
