You can never get a seat here, I guess the trick is to show up when the place opens up, the service here is non existent but yet it is packed all the time. I don't get it, there are so many other choices around Anaheim. I WOULD AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS.

We just went here for cocktails the night we arrived. We sat outside and had a cocktail- an expensive cocktail, but it was delicious, the waitress was great, and the music was amazing. There were two guys singing and they were great. We didn't eat, but would definitely return.

Flippant hostess advised it was a long wait and we would be served in courtyard area. The courtyard had fireplace and couches so we thought why not? Service was super slow so got our own. We went two nights in a row with the same result. Really disappointing that after a long day the Disneyland Hotel shuts down the bar... More

I had read about Trader Sam's prior to our visit and I was already convinced that we should stop there before we left town. One blog I've been reading says that Trader Sam's is not just a bar, it's an attraction, and after spending a few hours there I have to agree. I can't say enough good things about this... More

This place was packed mid-afternoon when we stopped for a drink and snack. The wine and beer selections were good. We had chicken lettuce wraps for our snack which were excellent. We were stuck outside where it was both sunny and hot because there were no vacant seats inside. Service was very slow. I think this is one of the... More

If you love kitschy places, you need to check this out! It was on my must-do list for our short visit to Disneyland. We went during the day because we had our kids with us, but I imagine it could be really fun at night with an all adult crowd. It was still dark during the day and not very... More

Before I begin, I went expecting great things and, unfortunately, it didn't meet my expectations. We visited on a Wednesday night at about 9:30pm. Pulled up to the gate at the Disneyland Hotel and were told that Trader Sam's did not validate parking so if we wanted to park there it would run $18 or so for the first hour.... More

During our stay at the Disneyland Hotel we went to this bar for a drink and had a very good time. The bartenders are very upbeat and a big deal, complete with sound effects and water effects, is made when certain drinks are ordered. The drinks are very good, obviously think Tiki theme. Surprisingly the drinks were cheaper than I... More

I LOVE THIS PLACE! Great place to enjoy fun ambiance and good drinks. I told the bartender I wanted something with ginger beer, and he hooked me up with an Irish Mule. It was super tasty. The staff here is amazing and it's an awesome spot to quench your thirst!

If going to Disney or Hawaii, you HAVE to have Dole Whip! It is so good and well worth the wait if there is a line. The float or just the soft serve. In Disney World, they offer Dole Whip with Black or Coconut Rum. It is excellent either way!!!
