A little tropical flare in the heart of Disney. We had breakfast here one morning and appetizers later that evening. The food was onolicious!

We are from Arizona so we are use to good Mexican food. This place was good. Not fantastic but good. Seemed authentic. Very attentive waiter. Chips and Salsa flowin. Kind of pricey for Mexican. $16 for a taco, enchilada, rice and beans. $7 for a Corona. Waited upstairs in the bar for a table. Got a text saying it was... More

The drinks are AMAZING and STRONG! If you're with a few friends, try the Uh Oa! The experience is super cool (just don't screw up appeasing the tiki gods like I did) and the drink is loaded with the booze and yet SO delicious. Staff is extremely friendly, service is quick - just don't wait too long to get there... More

This is the place to go for adult beverages. We went early in the day, after a late brunch. It was dark and pretty chaotic in there, but still quiet. We enjoyed our drinks and a few of the special effects. It's a very small area - I wouldn't like to go when it's crowded.

Their signature cocktails are yummy but the ambiance is pure Disney. We had a great time. We recommend ordering the Shipwreck and the Krakatoa...and the Hippopota Mai Tai is yummy too.

Great decoration, really fun staff, & great drinks. I recommend it! This place can get pretty busy. It's nice that it is tucked away from Downtown Disney and close to the hotel. The outside area around is nice and quiet.

What a great spot! I visited Trader Sam's during my recent stay at the Disneyland Hotel and I will seriously be back. The food you can get is a bit limited but it is really good. I got the teriyaki cheeseburger with pineapple and I wished it was smaller so I could have gotten a second one. It was just... More
