Disney's Polynesian Village Resort

Entrée Range

$9.49–$15 (small plates only)


Trader Sam’s is a hit with Disneyphiles, so get there early—there are just 50 seats inside and 80 on the patio.

Setting and Atmosphere

Off the Polynesian Village’s main lobby and featuring views of the marina and Seven Seas Lagoon, this highly themed tiki bar has its own lore built in: It was started by Trader Sam, Adventureland’s famous “head” salesman, who welcomes you to his enchanted South Seas hideaway to explore a menu of “magical tropical drinks and food.”

House Specialties

Cocktails are the stars, with names like Tahitian Torch and the over-the-top Uh-Oa!—Plantation Original Dark and Bacardi rums mixed with various fruit juices and served in a communal tiki bowl.

Other Recommendations

Small plates include Hawaiian poke with Sriracha aioli, kalua pork tacos with shredded cabbage and pickled vegetables, roasted chicken and pork pâté banh mi sliders with pickled vegetables, Thai chicken flatbread, and the Headhunter Sushi Roll.
