Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar
Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar opened at Disneyland Hotel in 2011 and promptly became a popular destination for specialty cocktails and a quick bite to eat. Deriving its name from a character from the Jungle Cruise attraction, the venue is rich in theming and quality beverages, and thus, guests often face long wait times to enjoy the experience.
The bar received an East Coast counterpart when Trader Sam’s Grog Gotto opened at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort at Walt Disney World in 2015. Though aesthetically different in theming, the venues contain similar menus.
The well-realized tiki theming plays a large role in Trader Sam’s popularity. Merchandise based on and inspired by the bar has long been sold at Disney parks, including various themed tiki mugs. Mugs styled after the venue’s most popular cocktails have been sold in the past, and the beloved Hatbox Ghost from the Haunted Mansion received a tiki-style makeover for a mug of his own in August 2023. Most recently, a tiki mug inspired by Ursula’s cauldron was released.
