The Tropical Hideaway had an early “soft opening” at the Disneyland Resort and we were able to get some photos and check it out! Located right in between the Enchanted Tiki Room and the Jungle Cruise is this new outdoor dining spot with a rustic flare. The dining location has a lot to offer and food that had lots of flavor and flare. We will bring you a full review soon, but check out a few photos from our time there.

You can get into the Tropical Hideaway three ways — from the main entrance in Adventureland, from the Enchanted Tiki Room or from the Jungle Cruise exit.

Here are some key points you want to know:

There is a Dole Whip bar!
It’s a “grab-and-go” space with open seating
Jungle Cruise skippers are slated to come out periodically for meet-and-greets with diners.
The animatronic cockatoo “Rosita” from the Enchanted Tiki Room holds court daily, entertaining people with her jokes and patter.

Colorful wildlife can also be found at the Hideaway. The stars of the Enchanted Tiki Room live in small birdhouses that dot the roofline, each personally labeled. Can you spot them?

This exotic marketplace is the go-to destination for discovering extraordinary eats from all corners of the world.  Set along the Jungle River waterfront, it’s also the perfect spot to sit and relax in between adventures—perhaps with a refreshing Dole Whip! After sunset, flickering torchlights add to the evening ambiance. Travelers can reach The Tropical Hideaway across its main bridge, through Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room or along “Skipper’s Walk,” a pathway leading from the Jungle Cruise loading dock.
