You’ll be Jungle-ing all the way with this new Jingle Cruise Tiki Mug coming to Disney Parks this December. We previewed the ornament earlier in November once it was made available on shopDisney and have since been eagerly anticipating the arrival of the mug, which now has an official release date for Walt Disney World.

Trader Sam has imported an unusual tiki design from the islands to celebrate the holiday season. The decorative nutcracker is getting a new native look will should soon be available as the latest mug release at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar in the Disneyland Hotel. The Walt Disney World version of the mug features a bright, cheery red colored glaze.

Wristband distribution will start at 9:00 AM (EST) at Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace. Then Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto will open starting at 1:00 PM for guests to redeem their wristbands for the red Nutcracker Tiki Mug! There is a limit of 1 per guest, with no discounts available.

Until then, you can say Mele Kalikimaka to the ornament version of the mug:

Tiki Nutcracker Ornament – Trader Sam’s ($24.99)

The fully sculpted tiki ornament features Nutcracker styling and a ”Jungle all the Way” title on base. The faux wood ornament also has a satin ribbon for hanging.

The ornament is available for $24.99 while supplies last on shopDisney, but once further details are released on the mugs, these should become available at BouTiki in Disney’s Polynesian Resort and at Disneyland Resort…
