Trader Sam — the famous Head Salesman of Jungle Cruise fame — has collected artifacts from all over the globe in his travels and has brought them to his “happy hideaway” in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. Disney details abound all over this 51-seat bar which also features interactive elements from special effects throughout the room and zany antics from the bartenders in response to the ordering of certain libations.
Until 8 p.m., this restaurant is available to the whole family. Only 21 and over are allowed admittance afterward.
While seating is limited, Trader Sam’s offers food as well as an extensive cocktail menu based on Trader Sam’s passion for mixology which developed as an offshoot of his professional interest in head-shrinking potions. The same menu is featured outside at Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace.
