The Tambu Lounge in Disney World’s Polynesian Village Resort is a well-loved spot. Known for cocktails like the Lapu Lapu (served in a pineapple) and the Backscratcher as well as single servings of ‘Ohana’s famous Bread Pudding, it’s not a Disney vacation for many guests without a stop at this little cove.
But change is coming to Tambu Lounge. According to Tikiman’s Unofficial Polynesian Resort Pages on Facebook, Tambu will close after the 4th of July and will remain closed for about two months. This temporary closure will result in an expansion to the lounge to add another well for a barterer, and also add a side station for a cocktail server.
During the closure, a temporary bar will be set up to serve ‘Ohana and walk-up guests, but no bar seating will be available. Other options for grabbing a drink at the Polynesian include the Barefoot Pool Bar, the Oasis Bar & Grill, Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, and Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace.
We say a fond “Aloha” — for a little while — to Tambu Lounge!
