This is a great place to have a little adult fun at Disney. Located at the Disneyland Hotel, this popular bar serves drinks and light meals in a tropical setting. They have seating both indoors and out, but try to grab one of the few seats inside so that you can watch "the show". Each time someone in the bar... More

By no means is the food here "one of the best meals" I have ever had. But a nite here is super (adult) fun, with scads of fruity rum drinks, expertly made, and tasty bar snacks and light meals also. What's super cool is the decor and ambiance. It's great when Disneyland closes early and you want to stretch out... More

The drinks were awesome and some were served in souvenir mugs for you to take home. When ordering particular drinks there is chanting and a light show. This is definitely not the place if you want a quiet drink however the atmosphere is great and staff are entertaining. The snack food is also very tasty and compliments your cocktails perfectly

Great little spot to have an evening drink, very interactive but gets crowded quick! Order a specialty drink to have a fun little show!

I wanted to move in her after our experience. LOVE the decor and the shows put on when someone orders the Uh Oa or Krakatoa. The pulled pork flatbread was INCREDIBLE (and I don't like flatbread or pork), the tuna poke was excellent (very fresh), and the best dish we tried during our whole trip was the sweet and spicy...

I don't think you can find a more fun place to drink. This place is awesome. From the themed drinks, to the rainstorms and volcanic eruptions, this place is like no other. We went twice this visit, once on a Saturday and once on a Wednesday. Both were packed. I will go here every time I am in the area.... More

It's like drinking in the Enchanted Tiki Room, with animatronic effects. Very small, so often crowded and slow service.

I thought an attraction like this (an awesome themed bar, with live entertainment, and outdoor dining area), would stay open a little later for dinner. Maybe my friends confused me, but it seemed we were only able to order from a basic menu via touchscreen. Only after dinner, did we head in to the bar for some cocktails. However, in... More

Loved the food and the drinks were good too. But the best part was the atmosphere. The bartenders get all into it and do a show for certain drinks ordered. Only complaint is that there isn't enough seating. And took a little to snag a seat at the bar. Other than that it was a fun experience and we will... More
