The Trader Sam's Bar is one of the coolest things that Disney Imagineering has done in ages - as a Disney fan, and as a fan of strong drinks, it made quite the impression on our group during our visit. The motif is all tiki/explorer's club, with some pretty good drinks that range from classic to slightly gimmicky (i'm looking... More

Tried to go to this bar on a Thursday night. While it is Disney and you are used to waiting, this was a bit over the top. Were in line to get in and once we were allowed to enter after 15 mins, there was no seats available. Seemed weird that you could go in, but not sit down. Got... More

I Love the Tiki Room and Walt wanted to make it into what Tader Sams is, His version of Trader Vics. Mai Tai was ono. But for fun order the shipwreck and watch the ship above the bar sink. Great intimate place as a Tiki Bar should be like Tiki Ti

If you are thinking you would like to eat or drink at the world famous Trader Sam's in the Disneyland Hotel be there when they open or you will never get a seat. It is a super small venue, but so cute. There is lots to see on the wall.

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

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.
