One of the greatest formats for graphic, eye-catching announcments of the latest entertainment offerings at the park were the Main Gate Flyers. A sub-category onto themselves, these pamphlets, broadsides and folders always feature splashy imagery specially made to entice and inform the ticket-buying guest. This gate flyer for the premier of the Enchanted Tiki Room is one of the best produced. Robitic entertainment was unheard of in 1963. The concept of Audio-Animatronics and the show format it would be presented in was so new, Walt and the Imagineering staff felt the public would need several primers to wrap their minds around the idea. The information provided within this gorgeous flyer served that purpose. Also interesting, because the Tiki Room was wholly owned by Walt's personal company, the copyright is WED Enterprises, Inc. as opposed to Walt Disney Productions. Rare.
7.5"x4.75" folded, and 7.5"x8.5" unfolded. In fine condition, with minor edge-wear and a small 1" long semi-feint pen scribble on the right side of the front of the flyer. Reverse side has a less than 1" sized water mark.
