Say goodbye to Agrabah! Disneyland‘s once-popular Aladdin’s Oasis dining experience is going away forever, and in its place will be The Tropical Hideaway, a more open-air eatery nestled between the world-famous Jungle Cruise and Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room in Adventureland at the Happiest Place on Earth in Anaheim, California.
Disney’s official announcement about The Tropical Hideaway doesn’t provide a tremendous amount of information about the new locale (Are we calling it a restaurant? A hangout? A non-alcoholic bar?) but the provided concept art sure looks attractive. And the little we do know about the area’s redesign does make it sound appealing:
This one-of-a-kind destination will be a popular rest stop for Adventureland locals and weary explorers alike. Guests will be able to rub elbows with their favorite skippers in an exotic traders’ market, featuring all of the sights, sounds and flavors of the tropics.
Our favorite detail in the concept art above is the child gaping up at the Tiki Room’s long-lost “Barker Bird” animatronic character on the right-hand side. And the name “Tropical Hideaway” fits the theme perfectly. Sounds like a ideal use for that space, if you don’t mind Aladdin’s Oasis going away.
No opening date has been announced for The Tropical Hideaway, but be sure to check back here at Inside the Magic for more information and further updates from Disneyland Resort!
