Humuhumu’s description

Tangaroa Terrace is a new casual dining restaurant at the Disneyland Hotel, with a name inspired by the Tahitian Terrace

in Disneyland. It opened in May 2011. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and is near the more elaborately-themed Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar

. The offerings have island flavors, including a papaya slaw and a pineapple-teriyaki burger. Made-to-order meals are ordered via a video kiosk, and there are also some grab-and-go options. There are some tables indoors, but most of the seating is on an outdoor patio. Exotica and traditional Hawaiian tunes are played.

The video kiosks are gone - you place your order with a cashier. Cast Members are pleasant and polite.

I could only eat one thing on the menu (allergies), but it was good. No booze here, of course - you'll have to go next door for that.

The tiki decor is pretty light (especially compared to Trader Sam's), but does have some cool lights that must have come from Oceanic Arts and a couple framed pictures of Walt Disney with Enchanted Tiki Room birds.

It was blissfully quiet - only two other parties - on a Saturday at lunch. (There was one big, noisy family, but they went outside...thank heaven.)

I realize the holiday season is a big draw for Disney, but I do wish they wouldn't play Christmas carols (even tastefully reinterpreted ones) before Thanksgiving. I'll re-evaluate the music after a future visit.

The tiki-fied Christmas tree currently by the front door, however, is awesome.

Bummed, they just recently updated the menu. Loved the Steak, which has been taken off the menu :(

This is a small and very casual restaurant in the pool area of the Disneyland hotel. The menu is very small but it has a tropical slant and the food is good. Order at a video kiosk, pay the cashier, and then select an open table. Servers deliver your meal. There are a few inside tables but most of the seating is outdoors. There are nice views of the pool area which will be even more pleasant Iím sure once the hotelís renovation has been finished. The restaurant shares itís building with Trader Samís bar (a separate entry in critiki) which, if you donít have kids with you, is an absolute must see. If youíre not a hotel guest, park in the Downtown Disney parking lot. The first three hours are free.
