Replacing Aladdin's Oasis, the Tropical Hideaway seeks to open up views of the Jungle Cruise and generally offer a setting similar to the Tahitian Terrace that originally occupied the space. Serving as a thematic extension of Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room, it is accessible by ramp from the Tiki Room's exit in addition to its main entrance and a "Skipper's Walk" leading from the docks of the Jungle Cruise.
Tropical Hideaway consists of multiple snack stands, with "Dole Whip, I Presume" hosting Dole Whips and other desserts, and another booth offering bao buns.
Lying on the shores of Adventureland's rivers and adjacent to the Enchanted Tiki Room, the Tropical Hideaway is a rest stop for Adventureland locals and explorers alike, including members of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers that started a tradition of displaying paddles from various expeditions. In the relaxing setting of an exotic marketplace, guests can enjoy views of passing Jungle Cruise boats and meet Rosita, the missing member of the Enchanted Tiki Room's Showgirl Birds who has set off on her own to start a solo career.
- Tributes to Aladdin's Oasis at the Tropical Hideaway include a mosaic of the Magic Carpet at the entrance left-over from the previous restaurant and an "Exotic Lamp Sale" market stand that reuses the lamps from the restaurant. One of Rosita's lines of dialog also alludes to the Hideaway being an oasis as well as referencing the Tahitian Terrace.
- Another joke of Rosita has her wishing she was a "Pineapple Princess perched on a net".
- The name "Dole Whip, I Presume" may be inspired by an older Adventureland snack stand that similarly played with the quote about Dr. Livingston named "Sunkist, I Presume", which was replaced by the Bengal Barbecue in the early 90s.
