    Uh-Oa and Krakatoa were both excellent (and they gave me my tiki glasses in a box!) The decor is the perfect blend of Tiki Room/Jungle Cruise chic. I can't wait to go back to try more drinks!

    Ask for Kelly and order a suffering bastard, or ask for Christian and order a liquid love, or ask for ron and order a navy grog, or ask for bernado and order an orange burst with alcohol!!!

    This bar, inspired by Disney's Jungle Cruise, is an amusement park attraction for drinkers. Shipwreck on the Rocks, Krakatoa Punch and the Shrunken Zombie Head are their signature cocktails. Read more

    After going through the entire menu (and secret menu), I wanted to try something new. Michael invented Captain Mike's Mai Tai at my request and it was fantastic! Ask for Mike and try the new drink.

    Sit at the bar for exceptional service. The ahi poke and pork wings are phenomenal. If you don't have a sense of whimsy, you might a well just go to ESPN Zone & leave this place to the young at heart.

    This is one of our favorite bars. It's not far from the Convention Center and offers a lot of fun Disney gags. Some of the drinks come with special surprises, but we'll leave them to you to discover!

    Best themed bar in OC. Treat every drink with love. If you're a tiki enthusiast, it's not to be missed; certain drinks, when ordered, create an interactive experience with the bar and bartenders!

    Rating: 5. Pro: drinks are amazing! Ambiance is awesome. Con: Service is hit or miss - either you get an awesome one or not, no in between. Parking at downtown Disney and walk.

    I love this place! Bernardo is the best bartender - he makes the entire experience. Order the Uh Oa, Krakatoa or Mosquito Mojito! And tip well - imagine having to do what they do every day ;)

    The Uh Oa!, the Krakatoa Punch, the Hippopoto-MaiTai, the Shrunken Zombie Head...too many to choose from. Get the spicy wings and enjoy the atmosphere!

    The ambiance is great, and have great tiki mugs to take home. Service can take a little long later in the evening when all the adults and parents are in dire need of a drink.

    "The Uh Oa! can be shared by 2-4 people, has a cool tableside presentation, and is our favorite drink here. They serve good beers, but stick to mixed drinks because they’re that good." ~ Tom Bricker Read more

    Most of the bartenders are pretty good. However Kelly and Rhonda are the best. Be sure to sit at the bar to have them make your drinks. You will notice the difference.

    The best seats in the house are the middle one on the left side of the bar and the one that's third to the left on the front of the bar.

    See if you can spot the Buzz/Woody tiki mugs (there are two to show both sides). They were a gift for the Toy Story 3 crew from director Lee Unkrich. I wonder how many heads Sam had to trade for them? Read more

    Decor and vibe inside the bar are amazing, but the Tiki drinks are not much more than Kool Aid sugar bombs made with cheap liquor. I wish they'd make them more authentic like Tiki Ti or Bali Hai.

    Strong drinks (most of them, anyway). Oh and those light up ice cubes that come with select cocktails make awesome emergency lights for your car.

    Order a shipwreck of you're sitting inside. You won't be disappointed! Best to visit in early afternoon is it is a popular spot in the evenings.

    This place is really nice. Good music impromptu hula dancing and very pretty tiki ambiance ! But it was packed, and the drinks are too strong LOL had to get extra juice and water it down!!!

    Tiki bar I've heard described as "If the Enchanted Tiki Room served drinks". Interactive menu means that if you order certain drinks, the bar staff -- and the room itself -- will react accordingly.

    Dude, I love this place but there are not enough seats, the bartenders get quickly overwhelmed, and it's just plain frustrating. That's the opposite goal from what it should be for a tiki bar.

    If your feet are hurting, ditch the afternoon crowds and take the Monorail to Trader Sam's. Toss back a tipple and return to the park when the crowds start going home.
