Shrunken Zombie Head

That’s because Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto and Tiki Terrace at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort are now officially OPEN! Now, for all intents and purposes, both the Grog Grotto and Tiki Terrace have pretty much been in operation since March 28th, when the soft opening began, complete with wacky antics by the bartenders and skippers, erupting indoor volcanos, and a fully angered goddess of disaster.

Trader Sam's Grog Grotto Lives Up to West Coast Version with Unique Experiences, Drinks and Decor (150 Photos, Video)

Trader Sam's Grog Grotto had a "soft opening" yesterday at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. I was very suprised that Disney announced it, and I knew that meant that the East Coast version of the popular Disneyland tiki bar would be extremely busy. Once announced, we planned to go in the afternoon - but at the last minute, we figured morning would be better and more organized. It was both.

Kiki Tikis Splash Play Opens at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort: Photos & Video of New Water Play Area

The new water play area at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort has opened next to the Lava Pool! Kiki Tikis Splash Play is a water playground for children 48 inches and under that includes two slides and plenty of water fun. We were told that the hours for Kiki Tikis Splash Play will coincide with the pool hours. Last night, the water play area closed at dusk due to lighting issues. Kiki Tikis Splash Play is not only nicely themed, but is more elaborate than most water playgrounds.

Orange Thoughts of an Orange Bird (Korkis Korner) by Wade Sampson

Think funny thoughts or sunny words That will make me happy, little Orange Bird He thinks beautiful orange pictures and beautiful orange words Though his little feet can't even make a squeak All the thoughts he ever spoke appear in orange smoke That's what makes Orange Bird unique When you're just about green with envy Or gonna be feeling blue And you could use An orange thought or two When you start in blushing pink Or your temper turns you red That is when the Orange Bird Can see you through With his beautiful orange feathers And beautiful leafy wings He's a fluffy little puffy sight to see He can turn your frown around When you see him looking down The little Orange Bird up in the Sunshine Tree"

Island Delights at the Disneyland Hotel (More Mouse) by Britt Winslow. Anyone who has visited the Disneyland Resort in the last few years has to have noticed a construction wall.

Island Delights at the Disneyland Hotel (More Mouse) by Britt Winslow

You know, those 8-foot-tall plywood barriers that block most of your view of the seemingly endless construction at the Anaheim branch of Disney's theme park division. advertisement Last week, Tangaroa Terrace and Trader Sam's made their official debut at the Disneyland Hotel, allowing guests visiting the Disneyland Hotel to see behind the construction walls for the first time in almost a year.

Yes, "behind the construction walls" is correct, because there are still hundreds of linear feet of blue plywood throughout the hotel complex, with the Disneyland Hotel still in the middle of its remodeling project,expected to last through most of 2011.

An Evening at Trader Sam's

No matter which Disney destination you choose, food will come into play at some point. One of the great things about Disney is they do an excellent job of feeding you quickly so you can experience the attractions and meet the characters. But for a foodie like me, sometimes the pace at which a typical Disney guest consumes his or her meal is a little too hectic. And not that hectic is always bad. There is something to be said for a perfectly placed churro cart in New Orleans Square that provides you with the sustenance we need for the journey between Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion.

Inside Trader Sam’s at the Disneyland Hotel

He’s an adventurer, an entrepreneur and a jungle legend. For 56 years, Disneyland park guests have crossed paths with him, the “Head Salesman” of the jungle, Trader Sam, as they sail toward the end of the classic Jungle Cruise attraction. Peddling shrunken heads, spears, masks, beads and trinkets, Trader Sam is famous for his special offer: two of his heads for one of yours. After a successful career as a witchdoctor, Trader Sam’s talents for brewing head-shrinking potions naturally gave him experience in mixing exotic elixirs. Ultimately, requests from thirsty jungle visitors inspired Sam to search for a more convenient, yet still exotic locale. Prior to opening his bar, Trader Sam traveled the world to find rare and exotic ingredients for his specialty drinks and secret mix of juices and spices he calls “Sam’s Gorilla Grog.”

Trader Sam’s – Mystical, Magical, Memorable

When you are at Disneyland, especially if you are staying on property, or lucky enough to be a local who can visit on a whim, one of my “Must Do’s” is Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar located by the pool at the Disneyland Hotel. I am sure that many of you have heard of this bar or have been there yourself; and if there is any debate on whether you should or should not go, my definite recommendation is that you should go. The actual drinks in the specialty glasses are good, very good in fact, but I wouldn’t say that they were outstanding. However, they are very close to authentic Tiki Bar drinks. They are mostly tropical, of course, and are not the kind of thing you can find in most typical bars trying to serve tropical drinks. I also had a chance to order the Pu Pu Platter, I wanted to attempt to try several things at once.

The ART(ifacts) of Trader Sam’s : EndorExpress. Brave explorers coming to the Disneyland Hotel can enjoy island style food and cocktails at TRADER SAM’S ENCHANTED TIKI ROOM, one of the newest hot spots at the resort. Inspired by the Jungle Cruise’s head salesman of the same name, this intimate location serves up more fun than the God’s will tolerate. But it’s not just the island “cruise”-ine that brings worldly travelers to this “Tiki Room” it’s the thousand plus trinkets, artifacts, photographs, props, and artwork that adorn the space that really make coming here something special.

Here at EndorExpress, we have a huge appreciation of all things Indiana Jones and The Rocketeer so we went straight to Brandon Kleyla, “head” decorator of Trader Sam’s to tell us about the unique décor that went into creating one of Southern Californian’s hottest bars.
