    Well, it's official. Krakatoa and Uh-oa souvenir mugs are no longer being sold. I was curious if they were fading out the souvenir mugs or just those two to rotate in some new ones? I'm going next year and want a souvenir of the experience.

    Hiya, David. You just keep the Trader Sam's Grog Grotto questions coming and I'm totally here for it!

    The souvenir mug options change from time to time at this inventive and fun lounge. You don't always know what options there are going to be when you go, but there is usually something fun to bring home to commemorate your time at the lounge. Just ask your server what options are available and choose one that speaks to you! I have one that I proudly display on a shelf in my living room and everyone thinks it's just a unique piece of decor unless they know, like how you or I would know. And I love that. It's like having a hidden detail in my house that I can pretend the Walt Disney Imagineers placed there just as they do at all of the Disney Parks around the world!
     
    I recently learned from my friend Jenna J. that if you are short on time and don't want to wait in the virtual queue for this lounge but still want a souvenir mug, you can sometimes ask what souvenir mug options are available at Trader Sam's Tiki Terrace, also at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, tell them you'd like the mug, and buy the drink there. They'll give you the drink in a plastic cup and then all you have to do is stop by the host stand at Trader Sam's Grog Grotto, show your receipt, and they'll give you the mug in a souvenir box!

    If you're a Star Wars fan, there are also sometimes souvenir mug options at Oga's Cantina in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios. But souvenir and Star Wars fan status aside, this is simply a great experience. Between the intergalactic atmosphere, the hidden details, the delicious drink concoctions, and the funky beats supplied by DJ R3X, this is an experience that I think anyone who enjoys a really wonderful lounge will rave about. Just note that an advanced dining reservation for this lounge is highly recommended.

    David, I hope you find a souvenir mug that speaks directly to you. And whether you use it as a mug or decor (or both), I hope it brings a smile to your face each time you see it and remember your time at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    If you have any other burning questions, Trader Sam-related or not, I've got your back!
