The limited-time mug will only be available via mobile order through the Disneyland app. Mobile orders will start as early as 6:00 a.m. PT on Wednesday. Once ordered, guests will be able to pick up the tiki mug within their designated arrival window, between 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. There is a limit of two per order.
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 in order 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; mugs styled after the venue’s most popular cocktails have been sold in the past, and a woven handbag featuring the HippopotoMai-Tai cocktail mug debuted at Disneyland Resort in August. A line of Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar clothing was spotted at Disney’s Fantasia Shop in July, and the beloved Hatbox Ghost from the Haunted Mansion recently received a tiki-style makeover for a mug of his own. The release of the Hatbox Ghost Tiki Mug prompted an hours-long wait for those who wanted to take that ghost home with them.
New glass panel fencing was added around the exterior seating area of Trader Sam’s this month.
