Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto is a tiki-themed lounge, based on the popular themed lounge at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, CA. The lounge operates daily from 4:00 p.m. to midnight serving food and drinks, and is available exclusively to guests aged 18 and older after 8:00 p.m.
About 30 – 60 minutes before opening, a line forms outside (past the entrance of Trader Sam’s and through the exit). The first 50 people will receive a hand stamped and will be taken inside upon opening; latecomers can ask for a pager to be notified when additional inside space opens up. Seating is also available outdoors on a patio offering a waterfall, live music, table service, and a walk-up bar. There is no age restriction outside on the Tiki Terrace, and seating is first come first serve. Inside, watch for audio and lighting effects to come to life when select drinks are ordered. Cast members inside and out offer their own brand of fun!
TheMouseForLess Tip: Those driving will have to park at Transportation and Ticket Center and either walk or take a monorail to the Polynesian Village Resort. Parking at the resort is reserved for guest and those with confirmed dining reservations only.
