Trader Sam’s and the Disneyland Hotel | Anaheim, CA

Disney has done a great job revamping the Disneyland Hotel.  It has just as much charm as I remember as a little girl with vintage throwbacks and touches.


One of our favorite spots in the Disneyland Hotel area is Trader Sam’s.  It is a delightful tiki bar nestled right behind the Disneyland Hotel pool.

This bar is a blast.  It is small, casual, and decked out like it was swallowed by the Jungle Cruise ride.  (Trader Sam is the head salesman from the Jungle Cruise ride, so it has to follow theme!)  It is interactive, lively, and when certain drinks are ordered, a volcano on the wall will erupt, or thunder will echo above. Sometimes squirt guns are even involved. It is basically a Disneyland attraction in itself.

Can’t you feel the fun energy from the photos?  The best part is you don’t need a ticket to the theme park to enjoy all that Downtown Disney has to offer, including this little gem.

    I love this and never even knew it was there! I wish I'd known before we left CA. We never had reason to stay at one of the hotels since we lived so close by, so I never even looked up anything about them. I wish we'd at least gone here for drinks!

    I went to Disneyland once when I was in college but it was just for the day. Now I want to go back and check out this hotel!

    This place looks amazing. I so want to go to Disneyland in CA. I will settle for Disney World this year but it's definitely on my list.

    I just love the way you guys travel.

    I know… there are really a ton of fun things to do in Downtown Disney before you even get to the parks. :)
