UTI Disneyland Enchanted Tiki Figure
Artist Kevin Kidney
It measures 22 inches tall. NEW! With the original tag and the original Styrofoam!
She’s a ubiquitous fixture of The Polynesian Village. She stands on nearly every walking trail, glaring at guests, holding her torch aloft, and carrying a speared fish on a triton. If you’ve been to the Polynesian, you’ve seen her, perhaps without realizing it. This is almost to be expected, considering the believable illusion that the Polynesian Village paints; one tiki statue shouldn’t draw attention, but should mesh with the environment of the tropics you’ve been fortunate enough to visit. What you might not realize, however, is the interesting history behind Uti, The Goddess of Fishing, and that her original purpose WAS to draw attention and be part of the face of one of Disney’s most iconic attractions. $185.00 Sold!

The E-Ticket Magazine
As many fans of Walt Disney and Disneyland know, The "E" Ticket was a magazine devoted to "collecting theme park memories". While the magazine is no longer published, it lives on in the hearts of its many devoted fans. Now, thanks to Diane Disney Miller, her family and the staff of the Museum, you have the chance to own a piece of this amazing history.
But first, a bit of the back story:
Leon and Jack Janzen grew up in Southern California during the golden era of the 1950s and 1960s. Back then, Southern California was awash in various theme parks from the mountains to the sea. The two brothers made a habit of visiting various parks as they were growing up, and as they got older the love they had for those salad days of boyhood and escapism moved them to create The "E" Ticket, a fanzine devoted to their favorite childhood destination, Disneyland. In the winter of 1986, the first issue was published. Their intent was to provide not only a detailed history of their favorite park but to also spotlight the “artists, Imagineers and other creative individuals who helped design and build Disneyland”.
In the days before the Internet, Google, and the ability to discover history with the stroke of key, The "E" Ticket provided a magical behind-the scenes peek into the Disneyland that Walt had imagined.
The magazine was a mix of drawings, photos, and images, some of which hadn’t been seen since those early years of the park. The brothers were quickly befriended by retired artists and Imagineers. With each issue being devoted to a particular land or ride. Jack and Leon researched each article and provided memories of their own from their childhood adventures at the “Happiest Place on Earth.”
They conducted audio interviews with well-known craftsmen and those not-so-well-known, preserving in some cases the stories and memories of a generation of craftsmen who had helped Walt Disney realize his dream. Early issues of The "E" Ticket were not just devoted to the early history of Disneyland, but Jack and Leon also wrote about other Southern California landmarks such as Marineland, Pacific Ocean Park, Corriganville, and others that have long since vanished from our landscape. These early issues quickly went out of print and became collectors’ items. The "E" Ticket was published two to three times a year for the next 17 years.
As the membership grew, the small newsletter-like quality of the original issues evolved into a color, glossy publication but the brothers never lost the quality of the stories and the histories they were telling. Bob Gurr, Yale Gracey, Marc Davis, and many other Imagineers and behind-the-scenes personalities all contributed to the magazine.
The love Leon and Jack felt for the Disneyland of their childhood came through in each issue. According to the Internet Archive, the magazine went online in the mid-1990s and the website was upgraded every few years. In addition, the website offered a gallery of poster images and other rare images such as the postcard book from Adventure in Inner Space, as well as a complete index of all the issues they had published.
Due to demand for the out-of-print early issues, they created a CD-Rom highlighting those early issues and the two annuals they produced in the early days of the magazine. Over the years, it would grow into a three CD-Rom collection. Unfortunately, in 2003 Leon Janzen died. The loss hit Jack Janzen hard, and it was almost a year before another issue was released.
In 2008, Jack Janzen announced that the “end of the line for the magazine was in sight”. In the summer of 2009 he published the final issue, #46, highlighting the Indiana Jones ride. On August 7, 2009, Jack invited his readers to join him and special guests Bob Gurr, Alice Davis, Ed Squair, Dave Smith, Tony Baxter and others for “one last ride”. The gathering was held at the carousel at Griffith Park where guests got to ride the “horses” all evening long and sit on one of the benches that Walt had sat on while watching his daughters go round and round. It was there, legend has it, that Walt began to think about Disneyland.
On December 31, 2009, Jack announced that he was retiring and that the end had indeed arrived for his magazine. He said goodbye to his readers but left them with good news:
Walt Disney valued multi-talented artists like Xavier “X” Atencio, who helped animate Disney classics, including Fantasia, and later developed music for such Disneyland attractions as Pirates of the Caribbean. X once described the thrill of acknowledgment when, as a young artist, Walt first greeted him with a robust, “Hi ya’, X!” X recalled, “Walt was a father image. You felt good merely having been in the presence of his dynamic personality.”
Born in Walsenburg, Colorado, on September 4, 1919, X moved to Los Angeles in 1937 to attend Chouinard Art Institute. Instructors gently prodded the shy young artist to submit his portfolio to The Walt Disney Studios. He wrote the script for both Adventure Thru Inner Space and Pirates of the Caribbean, for which he also penned the lyrics to the theme song, "Yo Ho (A Pirate's Life for Me)" and provided the voice of the talking skull early on in the attraction. He also wrote the script for the Haunted Mansion, including the lyrics to that attraction's theme song, "Grim Grinning Ghosts (The Screaming Song)." His voice can also be heard emanating from the coffin in the Haunted Mansion's conservatory ("Hey! Let me out of here!") and, in the Disneylandmansion, when the attraction comes to a temporary halt it is his voice which announces, "Playful spooks have interrupted our tour. Please remain seated in your Doom Buggy" as well as other emergency spiels. Another brief voice-over he provided was for the Submarine Voyage Thru Liquid Space where he is addressed as "Bridge." "Bridge: Aye, aye, all ahead one third. Stand by the mooring lines." He also wrote the lyrics to Buddy Baker's catchy music for the retired Walt Disney World attraction If You Had Wings.
X Atencio startled neighbors the next year when, running from the Company’s Hyperion Studio to his aunt’s house, he bolted past their homes shouting “I got a job at Disney!”
Within three years, X Atencio had been promoted to assistant animator on Fantasia. World War II sent him to England with the United States Army Air Forces, but he returned to the Studio in 1945 to work on animated short subjects. In 1953, he received his first screen credit for Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom, which won an Academy Award®. Other films he contributed to included Jack and Old Mac, as well as Oscar® nominees Noah’s Ark and A Symposium on Popular Songs. X helped animate titles and sequences for such Disney live-action films as The Parent Trap, Babes in Toyland, and Mary Poppins, and he contributed his artistic skill to the “I’m No Fool” series for the original Mickey Mouse Club television show.
In 1965, Walt asked X to stretch his talents by relocating to Walt Disney Imagineering, then called WED Enterprises, to assist in the creation of the Primeval World diorama for Disneyland. He went on to help develop dialogue and music for such attractions as Adventure Thru Inner Space, Haunted Mansion (for which he co-wrote the song “Grim Grinning Ghosts”), and Pirates of the Caribbean(for which he wrote “Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life for Me”).
He once said, “I didn’t even know I could write music, but somehow Walt did. He tapped my hidden talents.”
Later, X contributed to the If You Had Wings and Space Mountain attractions in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, as well as the Spaceship Earth, World of Motion, and Mexico Pavilions for Epcot Center. In 1983, he made several trips to Tokyo Disneyland to supervise recordings for Haunted Mansion.
X Atencio retired in 1984, after 47 years with The Walt Disney Company.
