Greetings, My name is Marcus and I'm pretty new to all this only having gotten into this in 2019 and then the world shut down. If there is a positive to the pandemic, it was that it gave me a lot of time to sit at home and think on things. While sitting on my patio with a tasty Trader Vic or Don The Beachcomber classic in hand, I decided to trick out my back patio. Now, while this site seems to be dedicated to most things traditional tiki, we did go with a a bit of a mix of things you'd see in Adventureland, so Lost Delta Landing was born. We had been Annual Passholders for years before the Park shut down, so we brought it home to us.

I started following Trader Brandon early on when I learned he was a Disney Imagineer we ran into "Re-opening Day of Buena Vista Street at Disney California. I saw his passion for TIki stuff and it hooked me. Over the last couple years I learned alot about tiki from guys like Adrian Eustaquio at Desert Oasis Room and Spike Marble of The Hula Girls with their YouTube channels. I'm a history nerd so I really dig this not just because of the drinks and decor, but all the rich history Tiki/Polynesian Pop has. The sub-culture has introduced me and my wife and I to all sorts of great music, food, drinks, clothing and a pretty rad community here in Southern California. We're in North San Diego county, so maybe we'll see some of you at Tiki Oasis!

I'd love to do a strictly traditional style space if I had a spot indoors, so for now I just keep adding things to "LDL" as we call it for short and it's been great since it has been an outdoor setting where friends could hangout going as far back as around September 2020. Much needed escapism!
