Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel is a full-circle distillation of everything that came before it, descended from the kitschy Polynesian-themed tiki bars pioneered by a man named Donn Beach in the 1930s and Walt Disney's own Tiki Room. The bar has totems with roving animatronic eyes and walls covered with treasure troves of tropical trinkets. At random moments, the lights darken and the room rumbles as if a storm cloud has settled atop the structure. Then comes the rain, a downpour that's projected onto the walls while the thunder claps. This, you realize quickly, is not just a tiki bar, but rather a bona-fide Disney attraction. A volcano erupts, a pirate ship in a bottle sinks, and at least a few bar stools lower unexpectedly as if you sat in quicksand. Each effect is triggered when someone orders a specific drink. Which drink? Well, it's easy to figure out with fanciful names such as "Shipwreck On the Rocks."
