    Do we have to have reservations at Trader Sams if we just want drinks?

    Hi Kay – and thank you for bringing your question to the panel!

    I am a HUGE fan of Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar. So much so that I even hosted my bachelorette party there years ago. The drinks are fun, colorful, and delicious, the view inside and out is gorgeous, and sometimes you can even catch live music at night.

    If you are planning on visiting Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar but do not have a reservation, there is no need to panic. You do not need a reservation, and there is a walk-up option. Based on my experience, the wait is often shorter for seats outside, but if you do have to wait for a seat inside, just around the corner is a walk-up bar called the Tangaroa Terrace Tropical Bar & Grill where you can order a drink while you wait.

    Before I let you go, I have to share some of my favorite things to order here. For food, you cannot go wrong with the Pu Pu Platter. You will get a sampling of some of their best hits, like the wings and their long beans. A delicious adult beverage I often order is the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Rum. And when I want something non-alcoholic or a drink for my son, Schweitzer Falls is very, very good too!

    Enjoy your time at the Tiki Bar and say hi to Trader Sam if you see him, although I hear he prefers to hang out by the Jungle Cruise most days.

    Have fun,
