    I need to make a reservation at Trader Sams but there are no reservations available.

    Hey Dana! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so excited to see it's your trip month! Now you are just weeks away from experiencing the magic of Disneyland Resort.

    I'm sorry to hear that you've had trouble acquiring reservations at Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar. That Trader Sam can be quite tricky to get ahold of! Please don't panic yet, I have a few tips for you that hopefully will allow you to unwind after you've returned from the world-famous Jungle Cruise.

    My first tip for you would be to just keep checking! I do see that Trader Sam's is taking limited reservations at the moment, so my advice is to randomly check to see if anything pops up as the days go by. Guests are always modifying their plans and maybe you will get lucky! I have the most success with this strategy by checking a lot the day or two leading up to when I want reservations as this is most likely when Guests change plans.

    If you aren't able to snag those reservations in advance you still have the mobile walk-up list option! I LOVE this option as I'm usually planning last-minute visits to Disneyland Resort. All you will need to do is search Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar in the search field of the Disneyland app the day of. Click the page and you will be able to see the hours of the day and maybe even the current wait time. I can see right now that it's currently 20 minutes. If you are hungry for a bite, head that way to the Disneyland Hotel. When you are close enough to Trader Sam's, open that page again and there should be an option to "Join Walk-Up List". There you can add in your party information and get on the list. Your app should give you a notification that you are on the list and again when it's your turn.

    Dana, I hope these tips help you get to enjoy time at Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar. Have some panko-crusted long beans and a HippopotoMai-Tai for me! As you put the finishing touches on your trip please know we are here to help you with any other questions you might have. See ya real soon!
