    Hi! My family will be visiting Disneyland resort over Christmas. I have a reservation for lunch at Trader Sam's, and am wondering if they have Christmas decorations or a holiday menu?

    Hi there, Frances!

    Spending the Christmas holiday at the Disneyland Resort sounds completely magical, what an amazing gift! Trader Sam can be rather difficult to contact, so I'm glad you've already secured your reservation. Let's talk more about your upcoming adventure!

    Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar is always covered in decorative details and hidden secrets, no matter the season! While I don't have any official news about Sam's holiday plans yet, I do know that in the past he has definitely shown some holiday spirit. If we reach back in the historical records of the Disney Parks Blog we can get an idea of what might be in store. And, being the generous guy he is, Sam has even shared a few holiday recipes with us! I can't promise that Sam has made the nice list this year, but hopefully he'll still want to decorate a bit for guests. We'll just have to wait and see!

    I do know that this is a super exciting time of year to read the Disney Parks Blog. There are so many holiday updates and sneak peeks! For example...the blog recently shared that the Adventureland Treehouse is just about to open for explorers! I have so many fond memories of exploring the treehouse as a kid (and making the climb as an adult to take a peek at the progress over in Batuu, haha!) and I cannot wait to see all the updates that Imagineers have in store for us. I hope you'll have time to make the trek over to see it and reward yourself with a snack from my favorite place, Bengal Barbecue. Yum!

    Frances, I hope that Trader Sam feels the magic of the holidays and delivers something extra magical for your visit! Enjoy the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort!

    Keep moving forward!
