This will be the first new Tiki mug to debut at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto in the Polynesian Village Resort since the Tiki bar reopened following the pandemic shutdown.
The souvenir mug celebrates the world-famous Jungle Cruise attraction and the release of the Jungle Cruise movie earlier this year starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt. Judging by the July 30 release of the mug over in Disneyland, it should sell out quickly.
Disney is ONLY selling this unique mug through wristband distribution. Distribution of these special wristbands will begin before Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto opens and will allow Guests to purchase up to two mugs per person.
Disney has brought out many souvenir Tiki mugs recently, including a new mug to celebrate Disney’s Haunted Mansion attraction back in September.
Another Jungle Cruise tiki mug set has been released through pre-order only through Tikiland Trading, and features a boat and a mug inspired by the “Indian Elephant Bathing Pool” section of the Disney Parks Jungle Cruise ride.
Before its reopening on July 19, fans had been waiting to enjoy a cocktail at Trader Sam’s for well over a year. The beloved lounge at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort had remained closed as the hotel has undergone some extensive renovations. Rooms at the Polynesian have been transformed to include the characters and colors of the Disney animated film, Moana.
Disney also updated Trader Sam’s menu, and you can see all of those changes here. Trader Sam’s will no longer be offering its Poke Bowl or the Roasted Chicken and Pork Bahn Mi Sliders. Thankfully, the popular pan-fried dumplings have remained on the menu.
So if you’d like one of these special jungle Tiki mugs, head down to the Polynesian Resort as soon as you can!
