Trader Sam's at the Disneyland Hotel
From the moment you step in, you'll find yourself wrapped up in a unique fantasy-world-within-a-fantasy-world full of surprises and staffed by great Cast Members. From trick sinking barstools to volcanic eruptions and living tikis, Trader Sam's is, by far, the most universally embraced result of the hotel's recent remodeling. It's about as lovable as a bar can get.
The colorful drink offerings sport names like "Hippopotomai-tai" and "Lost Safari." You can even order a classic WDW Adventurer's Club Kungaloosh. Non-alcholic drinks are also available, along with a selection of appetizers including Fish Tacos and Spicy Asian Wings.
The indoor seating area is quite small, so try to hit Trader Sam's in the afternoon if possible, or prepare to wait for a spot (it's worth it.) Children are allowed before 8:00 PM; After that, it's adults-only. Even if you're not staying at the Disneyland Hotel, it's worth the short, easy hike from Downtown Disney.
