    Can I go to trader Sam’s and just buy the mugs without the drinks or be on the list or do i have to get on the wait list to get them ?

    Hi Damien!

    Trader Sam's is such a fun vibe and the drinks are delicious but I completely understand not wanting to wait to get in when there are so many other options at Disney World. I often order a drink there just for the souvenir mug because I love collecting them as well. Fortunately, if you are running low on time and need to grab a tiki mug and run, there is an option for you. Trader Sam's Tiki Terrace offers the same list of drinks but in plastic cups. Don't fret, you can still get that souvenir mug. All you need to do is order your drink at the Tiki Terrace bar, enjoy it in its plastic finery, and bring your receipt over to the front desk at Trader Sam's Grog Grotto where they will hand you the boxed souvenir mug you purchased.

    Disney's Polynesian Resort is one of my favorite hotels to explore. While you are there I recommend checking out the Pineapple Lanai for some classic Dole Whip or if you are continuing with the adult beverages, you can also order it with a rum floater. If you are looking for a pick-me-up to keep your Disney day rolling, stop by Kona Island for what I would argue is the best Caramel Macchiato at Disney World.

    Happy Planning
