Those visiting Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and tiki fans everywhere are still missing Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto.
This cult-favorite tiki bar is a much-loved experience due to the atmosphere of the bar, the flavors of the drinks, and (of course!) the HIGHLY collectible Trader Sams tiki mugs! Folks line up for HOURS to try to get their hands on the latest tiki releases, and this morning, Trader Sams stepped UP the souvenir game.
Though Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto is still closed, you can still get your hands on these limited tiki souvenir releases by heading over to BouTiki, the main gift shop at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort — and boy, did we have a find today!
Now, when we say demand is high for these, we mean it! A new shipment of the latest souvenir arrived today and we found ourselves waiting in a line before the store even opened.
The latest Trader Sam’s souvenir release is so much more than a mug — it’s a WHOLE BOWL SET. On top of that, it’s themed after the Nautilus so we’re flipping out. Check out the Trader Sam’s Chips and Dip Set! Or a bowl and cup set for any other snacking needs really.
They were keeping these sets behind the register to help avoid crowds and there’s a 10 per person limit, like with most limited-edition merchandise.
Once we’d snagged ours, we couldn’t WAIT to unwrap the pretty box to get an up-close look at the set.
The bowl is a very cool shape and classic tiki color with some incredible design. As with all Trader Sam’s souvenirs, one side has the Trader Sam’s logo.
On the sides of the bowl, you can notice some nautical details like bubbles, a clam…
…and a little starfish!
And remember this set IS 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea themed. So, what better image for the bowl than the Nautilus itself?
Alongside the BIG bowl comes a little one, perfect for holding your fave dip or for drinking out of if you really wanted to. One side of the dip cup says “Dive! Dive! Dive!” in cute tiki lettering…
…and the other has that iconic Trader Sam’s logo.
The glossy finish on these babies is SO pretty.
