José is mentioned as a contact for the Disneyland Casting Agency to recruit new bird performers for the Tiki Room.
There is a candelabra in this restaurant modelled after José, Fritz, Michael and Pierre.
At the Tropical Hideaway, a package delivered by the Jungle Navigation Company is seen along the riverside. Said parcel is addressed to José.
Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room
Jose is the main Tiki Bird and his awakening by a cast member opens the show and calls Michael into waking up. He leads the Tiki Room cast in singing both The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room and Let's All Sing Like the Birdies Sing.
The Enchanted Tiki Room: Under New Management
The show opens the same way as the original, but the song is interrupted by Iago, who tells them that the old act isn't going to do it anymore. Jose protests by telling Iago "We've done the same show!" with Fritz. When Iago's actions wake up Uh-Oa, Jose and the others briefly sing Hot, Hot, Hot as the Tiki Gods come to life. With Iago punished and learning his lesson that the Tiki Room can adapt just fine to a new audience, Jose and his friends happily celebrate getting their show back.
In Disney Kingdoms: Enchanted Tiki Room, Jose decides to quit the group and start a solo career, with the Tiki Birds scrambling to find a substitute and considering options like the Orange Bird, holograms, and their volunteer employee Chip. After Chip's failure, Jose decides to come back as long as they let him have the creative freedom to perform new material. However, this does not last as Jose's ego continues to grow out of control and the band ends up breaking up entirely after a fight between him and Michael.
Jose continues trying to start a solo career, selling CDs at the hastily built "Chip's X-Treme Tiki World" island resort that Chip built with money invested by the wealthy Randy family. When this fails, he flies back home and desperately tries to make amends with the others, only for Michael to be kidnapped shortly afterwards, leading to a rescue and the eventual re-forming of the band.
