Walt Disney World denied the rumored changes to The Enchanted Tiki Room today that would allegedly see the birds ousted for Moana.
In a Disney Parks Blog post entitled “A little birdie told us…“ Disney officially debunked the rumor. But they also used the post to throw some shade at unofficial Disney news websites that report on rumors — calling them “unscrupulous sources.”

A little birdie told us there are some rumors flying around about our beloved Tiki birds at Walt Disney World Resort. We’re sorry that our fans are being fed incorrect information by unscrupulous sources. While “toucan” play at that game, we deal in facts here at the Disney Parks Blog. Although we won’t address every rumor, we want to set the record straight: there are no plans for our feathered friends to fly the coop any time soon. We’re constantly evolving our stories, but these birds will continue entertaining our guests at the Magic Kingdom Park just as they have done since 1971.
