The Nautilus — made to serve two — comes to you filled with Barbancourt Pango Rhum, Appleton Estate Reserve Rum, Combier Crème de Pêche de Vigne Liqueur, Tropical Juices, and Falernum. As with the other drinks served in souvenir glasses, ordering one will set off a chain of special effects around the small room that is the Grog Grotto. (You can see the previous edition of the Nautilus here.) [Read more…]
Just in time for the Halloween season, Trader Sam’s revealed its newest Haunted Mansion themed tiki mug! This year the mug features everyone’s favorite Hatbox Ghost!!
Trader Sam's Grog Grotto
This guy is the latest in a series of mugs that come out every year around this time. They’re always limited edition, and they always cause a serious stir! (And by stir I mean hours-upon-hours long lines, carefully rationed wristbands, and a dedicated cadre of guests who are willing to spend an entire day hoping they’ll get one of the few available.)
If you don’t know who the Hatbox Ghost is, well, then you need to book yourself a trip to Disneyland ASAP! He can be found hitchhiking (of course) right after the ride through the attic in Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion. (In case you’re not sure you’ve got the right one, he’s the ghost that every single camera phone is trying to capture the best video of as you turn that quick corner!)
Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is a tiki bar full of enchantment, adventure… and crazy popular souvenir glasses!
While many of the specialty cocktails on the menu such as Krakatoa Punch, the Uh-Oa!, and the Polynesian Pearl come in souvenir glasses, the granddaddy of them all is: The Nautilus. And the “glass” is now available in its 2nd edition, according to the @WDWToday Twitter account. [Read more…]
You may recall the debut of the 2016 Haunted Mansion Hitchhiking Ghosts Tiki Mug at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar, causing lines for daaaayz of guests hoping to grab the limited edition piece (and causing more of the same when it arrived at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto in Disney World shortly thereafter). Well, get ready to face those lines again, my friends… because the 1st Edition Holiday Elephant Tiki Mug will arrive at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar in Disneyland Hotel on November 30th!
We wait all year for the start of it. Yep — the Epcot Food and Wine Festival is underway!
If you haven’t been, be sure to put the event on your Disney Bucket List. At this time of year, Epcot is transformed into a food lover’s paradise. With Festival Marketplace Booths throughout both Future World and World Showcase, the opportunity to Eat Your Way Around the World(s) is even more exciting!
But there are also some choices if you’d like to splurge a little. Party for the Senses draws big crowds every year, as do pairing events and signature dining options at restaurants throughout the resort.
It’s a lot to plan for! So we’d love to offer you advice on a few Dos and Don’ts for navigating the Epcot Food and Wine Festival like a pro. Consider these pointers as you make plans to attend this year’s event. [Read more…]

You know all the crazy that’s been happening around the incredible Tiki Hitchhiking Ghost Mugs, right?
The limited-time vessels are a mash-up Tiki-Haunted Mansion creation, and people are losing their minds over them. They’ve already sold out at both Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar in Disneyland (although they are expecting more on the West Coast around Halloween) and Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto in Walt Disney World. And with people waiting in line for hours to get theirs, it’s clear that Disney has struck gold here. [Read more…]
