    Dining Review: Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar

    Review by Mark Hickson: OK, Trader Sam’s at the Disneyland Hotel is suppose to be a “tropical” venue. So let’s see how they do with the classic Hawaiian Aloha Burger.

    Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar

    Been to Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel yet? If you have, I’ll say “Aloha.” If you haven’t, I’ll say, “Ya betta go!” This place is fun! Fun drinks, fun food and fun people. The theme is defiantly “Overboard Tiki.” In many ways it reminds me (for good reason) of Disney World’s […]

  • The Steakhouse 55 Saga

    Last November I took a trip to Orange County to have Thanksgiving with the in-laws and (more importantly) spend three days at Disneyland Resort. Hawaiian Airlines has two flights into LA.

You can even get take-away booze in California Adventure (a sneaky way of making you forget the park kinda sucks). Here is a list of […]

  • EPCOT’s Food and Wine Festival

    Yours truly at the Mixology seminar in the old Wonders of Life pavilion. For $12.00 I got to watch an in depth demonstration and sample some liquors that I had never heard of before. Our mixologist Eric Hay, made three cocktails featuring “Xante” Pear liquor. It is described as “A balanced blend of sweet Belgium pears and cognac from specially selected […]

  • Rose and Crown Pub

    The Rose and Crown Pub at EPOCT’s United Kingdom Pavilion has been my favorite place to refresh myself since it opened in 82′. I have many fond memories in this establishment. I think I have eaten everything on the menu at least once including their Bangers and Mash, Fish and Chips, English Bulldog, Scotch Egg, Yorkshire Dales, […]
