This is an updated version of a shirt first released at Walt Disney World Resort last year. The bowling-style shirt is a sandy beige featuring Trader Sam’s motifs in shades of brown and orange.

Fans can recognize many familiar designs on the shirt, including the Trader Sam’s logo and the HippopotoMai-Tai.

A tribal mask has been removed from the design, likely as part of Disney’s ongoing cultural sensitivity efforts. Tribal masks were also removed from Adventureland at Walt Disney World.

The shirt is technically inspired by the Trader Sam’s location at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, not the original location at Disneyland Resort.

Among the leaves are postcards, signs, and animals from Jungle Cruise. One postcard featuring hippos reads “I’ve got a sinking feeling about this.”

The animals include a bathing elephant and a python in a tree.

Disney famously refurbished Jungle Cruise last year, also as part of cultural sensitivity efforts.

Both of these shirts are available at the Adventureland Bazaar in Disneyland. Which one would you wear? Let us know in the comments.

  1. My wife recently bought me the Tommy Bahamas Jungle Cruise shirt because I’m a former Skipper. I wore it once, and it immediately lost its show-room glory. I’ve read they are extremely difficult to care for and essentially disintegrate after a few washes, even after following care instructions.
