Trader Sam's is a tiki bar franchise with locations at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World. The first location, Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar, opened at the Disneyland Hotel as part of their 2011 refurbishment. The second location, Trader Sam's Grog Grotto, opened at the Polynesian Resort in 2015.

Based around Head Salesman Trader Sam from the Jungle Cruise, the atmosphere of the bar draws on the atmosphere of Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room, the sense of humor of the Jungle Cruise and the Adventurers Club, and through the memorabilia on the wall, references numerous Disney adventure films and other attractions. The specialty drinks featured in the bars come in souvenir mugs and when ordered, activate special effects within the bar.

Special Effects

Ordering certain drinks activates special effects and events in the bar. Examples include

  • Shipwreck on the Rocks - Causes a ship in a bottle to encounter a storm and sink. This was saved from the Library of the Adventurers Club.
  • Krakatoa Punch - Causes the volcano in faux-windows to start erupting.
  • Uh-Oa - The cast members begin chanting Uh-Oa's name and spray water as if to start a rain. At Grog Grotto, this culminates in the Uh-Oa animatronic waking up and speaking her "If you mess with Polynesia, the Tiki Gods will squeeze ya!" line.
  • Nautilus - Exclusive to Grog Grotto, the bar begins "diving underwater" through the use of blue lighting and sound effects from the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Submarine Voyage attraction. Additionally, the squid arm begins stirring from its rest and bartenders don snorkeling gear.
