Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar

©DisneyLovers of all things tiki or the old Adventure's Club at Pleasure Island will instantly fall in love with this new tiki bar located at the Disneyland Hotel. This bar is right up PTTP's alley, but unfortunately we have not been able to make the trip out to Cali to see it ourselves - yet!
Big thanks to Seth Kubersky, co-author of the upcoming "Unofficial Guide to Disneyland 2012" for the photos & info.
(Check out our review of Seth's Universal Orlando guidebook as well!)

PTTP's Thoughts: We are absolutely thrilled to see a specialized drink menu created at a Disney park again. Let's all hope this bar is successful and proves to Disney that the guests don't like the current homogenization of drink menus across the Disney lounges. Disney guests are always looking for that "unique" or "off-the-beaten-path" thing to do at the parks, and that includes menus. We've heard nothing but great things about this bar and the restaurant Tangaroa Terrace, so hopefully we'll see more of this excellent attention to detail in the future.

Menu as of 6/11
