Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto is located in the back of the Great Ceremonial House, which is currently under refurbishment. The popular tiki bar is closed at this time.
For comparison, the photo below shows the signage in place previously. The above photo was taken today.
Trader Sam has been under controversy lately, with his animatronic removed from the Jungle Cruise and two Grog Grotto shirts removed from shelves at BouTiki.
The signs were likely removed because the bar is currently closed, and no reopening date has been given. It is strange given how the signage was left since March 2020’s closure of Walt Disney World and through all of the reopening phases. The removal is not necessarily indicative of any larger changes to the bar, but it could indicate a reopening is coming, perhaps with new hours of operation.
