Trader Sam's at Disney's Polynesian Resort - 7 Reasons Why You'll Love It!

Trader Sams

5. A Taste of Island Lifestyle

The drinks aren't all you'll want to order at this lovely establishment. You'll also want to dig into one of their shareable appetizer plates, like their kálua pork tacos or their pan-fried dumplings. If you've got a much bigger appetite to sate, we recommend heading over to 'Ohana instead to feast on their buffet of offerings.

6. a Point

See what I did there? “To a point”? As in Trader know what, never mind.

Anyway, one thing that's nice about Grog Grotto is that it's perfectly family-friendly for a few hours following its afternoon opening time. Parents can feel free to bring their children and share some small plates and non-alcoholic beverages like the Skipper Sipper, Polynesian Punch, or the Schweitzer Falls.

At 8:00pm however, only guests 21 and over may visit. It isa bar, after all.

7. Tiki Terrace

While we adore the indoor lounge above all else, there's something to be said about the outdoor open-air portion of this location, known as Trader Sam's Tiki Terrace. They serve the same menu found inside, but with lots more seating and the Florida sky above. There's often live music being played out here, and the overall vibe is much more calm and relaxed than the zany antics taking place inside.

We could go on and on about this place, but suffice it to say that you should just go there and try it for yourself! No amount of words we write will capture the charming wackiness you'll experience when you visit Trader Sam's Grog Grotto. Just don't say we didn't warn you.
