Trader Sam’s at Disney’s Polynesian Resorts Adds New Drinks, Mugs, Raises Prices

Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto and Tiki Terrace at Disney’s Polynesian Resort has had a bit of a menu update recently.

As you can see above, all drinks have gone up in price. New to the Tiki Terrace, drink and mug prices are now printed on the menu. Believe it or not, they weren’t up until this point.

New to Trader Sam’s is the second edition Shrunken Zombie Head mug. It looks a lot like a version released at Disneyland Resort, but the stamp underneath is different for Grog Grotto.

I don’t know that I’ve ever had a weak drink from Trader Sam’s, but this may be the strongest to date. I’m a pretty big fan of the Knob Creek Bourbon (it’s in our beloved Smokey Bones Shake at Disney’s Animal Kingdom), so I was looking forward to this, but I think it’s just OK. Ours wasn’t very smooth, instead it left us feeling like this may have been an ingredient in Doc Brown’s “Wake Up Juice” in Back to the Future Part III.

Either way, there’s still more than enough enjoyable beverages beyond this at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
