An evening at Trader Sam’s


I recently had a short trip to Walt Disney World to catch up on some of the new things. As you know, I loved Harambe Market and thought this would be the pinnacle of my trip – but it wasn’t. After visiting Trader Sam’s to check out the much-hyped tiki bar, I realized that it was a tie between these two new magical spots. My thoughts and in-depth review are on my fiancée’s blog, and my pictures are below – grouped roughly by theme.

I shot using a Canon 6D and a Canon EOSM. Lenses were a 22mm, a 10-22mm, an 85mm, and a 28mm. Flash wasn’t used (and thankfully isn’t permitted!) in the bar, and photos were processed using Aperture for OS X. I color-corrected some photos to look as if Trader Sam’s was in natural sunlight to bring out details that were better served by that lighting. I left many more photos bathed in a mostly-blue light to show you what you’ll see within the bar itself.

As always, information is in the captions. Click to enlarge.

    Thanks for the awesome pictures and the great verbal review too! Now I just need the secret password for the beginning of August — as I am sure that occupancy of 51 is going to make it even harder to try those bar seats….
