    To get on Sam's Grotto virtual line, can I call or does it have to be done in person?

    Aloha Ann, and thanks for stopping by planDisney! We're so glad you're part of our 'ohana.

    My family has an upcoming stay at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, so I've been following along closely as more offerings here have come back online. We were so excited to hEAR that Trader Sam's Grog Grotto would be part of our world during our vacation. Currently, all travelers wishing to visit this tropical oasis when it's busy must join a virtual queue in person. At this time you are not able to call to reserve your space in advance, but a Cast Member stationed just outside the entrance will start taking names and phone numbers for the virtual queue approximately 30 minutes before opening. 

    If this system doesn't work for you, but you're still looking to enjoy some unique, island-inspired libations, check out Trader Sam's Tiki Terrace, located just outside Trader Sam's Grog Grotto. My family and I have snacked and sipped here without a wait while the indoor space was full, and you can still order some of the same exotic cocktails found in the grotto. My favorite is the Tahitian Torch!

    Ann, I hope you have a wonderful time on your fall vacation. If there's anything else we can do before your adventure begins, don't hesitate to reach out again. Thanks for stopping by, and we'll see ya real soon!
