""Oh, you hate your job? Why didn't you say so? There's a support group for that. It's called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar." -Drew Carey

Kissimmee's Big Bamboo Lounge.

A cross between kitschy diner and tiki bar, the Big Bamboo is one of the last great local bars that is theme-oriented by accident. Inside is dark and dingy, with office furniture, couches and bar stools scattered throughout and walls decorated with name tags, World War II memorabilia and original line drawings from cartoonists who left them as tips for the bartenders.

If you've got kids, chances are you're considering Orlando. Zoom through an interactive tour of family attractions on But don't get stuck in the tourist traps. Point your mouse to the Travel Channel for some suggestions on how to ditch Disney - think school bus races, canoe trips and refreshments at the Big Bamboo Lounge.

"The night the pump died" gang..

Over the course of 15-20 years, castmembers have contributed extensively to Big Bamboo's decor, which initially started out displaying Bruce's paraphernalia from his navy aviator days. The walls now are completely covered with new and old Disney name tags, t-shirts, hats, and business cards.
Since the official site has now moved (click on Jessica and Roger Rabbit graphic at top to go there); we are concentrating on the Boo's history and the WWII connection. Use the links on the left side (the Disney tags) to view the pages on this site.
