Trader Sam’s

There’s an enchanted tiki bar at the Disneyland Hotel – Trader Sam’s! After traveling the world for over five decades, Trader Sam has put together the artifacts that he collected on display. Keen observers will also find Disney references, puns, and even historical facts while taking in the antics of the bartenders. Until 8 p.m., this restaurant is available to the whole family. Only 21 and over are allowed admittance afterwards.

While seating is limited, Trader Sam’s offers a delicious menu (not your average bar food!) favoring South Seas flavors as well as an extensive cocktail menu. This is the place to hang with friends while sipping a tropical drink out of a Tiki glass!
