The Experience (rating: 10000/10) – I go back and forth between Enchanted Rose and Trader Sam’s for my favorite bar. I think it just depends on the night and what vibe were going for. If you want to have fun and meet more Disney Adults/Drinkers this is the place to be! Certain drinks will come with a themed performance. The regulars and all the bartenders stop what they’re doing to join in on the performance.

Order the Nautilus or Uh-Oa next time if you want to partake in all the fun!

Overall Rating: 10/10 – THE PERFECT WAY TO END YOUR NIGHT, this bar is so much fun you won’t ever regret coming here!
