- “When you mess with Polynesia, the Tiki Gods will squeeze ya!”
Uh-Oa, Tiki Goddess of Disaster, is a character originally appearing in the Enchanted Tiki Room (Under New Management).
Uh-Oa, Tiki Goddess of Disaster, functions as a representative of the Tiki Room's displeasure with Iago's plans to change the Tiki Room and his general disbelief in the Tiki Room's magic and relevance. While Zazu tries warning him that his bad attitude will lead to his undoing, he doesn't stop, prompting the Tiki Gods to summon Uh-Oa.
Emerging from a podium in the centre of the room where the Enchanted Fountain was originally installed, Uh-Oa breaks out into song as she unleashes divine punishment onto Iago before disappearing in a puff of smoke and letting the Tikis offer their own performance.
When the Under New Management attraction was restored to an abridged version of the original Tropical Serenade, the Uh-Oa figure would find a new home in Trader Sam's Grog Grotto. Here the animatronic became static and was perched at the top of one of the bar's back walls.
In the bar, a drink known as the "Uh-Oa" was created. When the drink is ordered, the bartenders start to chant her name as the lights flash, culminating in the figure's eyes glowing and speaking her signature line.
