    I'll staying at the Disneyland hotel late September with my family and really want to get into Trader Sam's. I believe that there is a virtual queue to join on the app. How does that system work? What time does it open and is it location dependant?

    Aloha, Patrick and welcome to planDisney!

    I’m so excited to hEAR that you are planning a visit to Disneyland Resort and your visit is so close! ChEARs! 

    There are a couple of ways to try and enjoy some time at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar. The first option you have is to book an advanced dining reservation. You can do this online or via the Disneyland mobile app. The second option you have is to try for a same-day reservation. Patrick, please keep in mind that same-day reservations can be made on a limited basis and are subject to availability. You will want to swing by Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar to schedule that. 

    Lunch begins at 11:30 a.m., so I do recommend arriving around that time to schedule your same-day reservation. Fingers crossed you get to enjoy this incredible experience. My fellow panelist, Andres, usually spends his free time hanging out at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar. If you need any food or drink recommendations, be sure to ask him. He always snaps the best “Instagram-worthy” photos of his food and drink orders.
