Today Disney’s Polynesian Resort reopens to guests at Walt Disney World! Also officially reopening today is Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto & the Tiki Terrace!
This fan-favorite tiki bar captures the romance of the South Seas through unique food and drinks has been closed since the start of the pandemic back in 2020.
Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto will open to guests around 3 pm today.
Delicious cocktails include the Polynesian Pearl, HippopotoMai-Tai, Tahitian Torch and the Dark & Tropical Stormy. To prove to your friends that you visited the grotto, you can even order your cocktail served in a collectible, Disney-exclusive tiki mug.
Venture into this tranquil hideaway for an enchanting evening packed with fantastic fun and delightful surprises. Explore the whimsically themed lounge—festooned with ancient artifacts and exotic treasures—or set sail for the open-air Tiki Terrace for a relaxing sip or nibble under the starry sky.
Does the name Trader Sam sound familiar? If you’re a long-time Disney fan, it should. Many years ago, famed Adventureland explorer Trader Sam was bitten by the bartending bug. And ever since then, Sam has searched for exotic ingredients to mix into magical libations.
Tucked away under the lush fronds of swaying palm trees, Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto is conveniently located steps away from the lavish lobby of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto welcomes the whole family—including children—from opening until 8:00 PM. After 8:00 PM, only Guests 21 years of age or older may visit.
