Welcome, Brave Adventurers! Dock your tramp steamer at the cement shores of the Disneyland Hotel pool area and enter this mystical, interactive experience. Bold and unforgettable cruise-ine awaits at this tiki bar inspired by the world-famous Jungle Cruise. Trader Sam's - named for the "head" salesman of the Amazon — features some of the exotic wares he has collected over the years. But beware...he's always looking for a good trade.

Awesome atmosphere

This place is great. The decor is just fantastic and the place comes to life when certain drinks are ordered. It was my favorite spot to patron during my week stay at Disney. The souvenir mugs are a must buy. I was lucky enough to get a left over 60th diamond mug from an event a couple days... read more

The souvenir mugs are a must buy. I was lucky enough to get a left over 60th diamond mug from an event a couple days earlier. It... More

Visited before my flight home - are outside because the line was too long to get in. Love it here everyone we visit. Enjoyed the pineapple hamburger and a few beers.

I read a review that said you had to take a look so I went to Trader Sam's to order a drink for around the pool. It was so small but the interior fit out was gorgeous - felt like we were all in a ship. And sure enough, whilst I was waiting the lights went out, lightning starts flashing... More

This is a SUPER cool place BUT to say it is SMALL is an understatement. It literally has like 5-7 tables TOTAL. We went in the first time and I was in shock of the size, and no tables available. I went and waited until they opened later in the week so we could get a table. It is a... More

We arrived just when they opened so we were two of about 10 people. Place is jammed later in the evening so expect a wait. If you are into Tiki, this is a MUST VISIT. Drinks were full strength (unlike the usual Disney drinks it seems) and were tasty. The mugs are cool and the special things that happen when... More

Super fun themed bar with great themed drinks. We were a party of five so unfortunately we didn't get a table inside as it was first come, first serve and the tables only seated four. We ended up sitting outside which was a bit chilly and the heater next to our table didn't work. The food was good, the drinks... More

We were there for my daughters 30th birthday. Oh did we have fun. Everyone is so friendly. It is small and loud but that is what we were in the mood for. The apps were good. They have a lot of special drinks. Can get a little pricey but, if you know it you can plan on it.

I wanted to try this place so badly but it's so small. It was never not packed. They should expand. I can only imagine how many people walk in, find it packed and walk back out again.

I suspect it a a favorite for the locals. Nice place to get cocktails, mostly themed. Tasty and above average snacks available. Unique, maybe for a place
