    When is trader sam's open

    Hi Daniel! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto is a favorite among my friend group. We have spent many afternoons partaking in delicious tiki drinks in a super fun environment. As a bonus, it is located inside Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, which is the very first resort I ever stayed in at Walt Disney World, so it brings back all the nostalgia for me. 

    Currently, Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto is open at 3pm to midnight every day. I would definitely check those hours when you are there, just to be sure. While I have been told you can try to make a reservation on the MyDisneyExperience mobile app, I have also been told by some of my most trusted travel companions that you can line up as early as 1:30pm, to try and be one of the first tables sat for the day. 

    Should you make it in, and have a chance to order some adult beverages, don’t miss ordering a Krakatoa Punch – it is a true experience! One of our friends also ordered the Nautilus in the souvenir mug and was not disappointed. 

    I hope this helps with planning your vacation to Walt Disney World! Please come back and visit us here with other questions you might have. 

    Happy Traveling,

GAWRSH! Hiya pals! I am a Goofy-loving mom of 2, who is married to my real-life Prince Charming. My family supports my passion for all things Disney. Walt Disney World was my very first vacation, when I was just 3 months old, and I recently completed my 73rd trip to a Disney location! I have been fortune enough to parasail high above the Disney Fantasy, attend opening day of Batuu, snorkel in the lagoon at Disney's Aulani, and SO MUCH MORE! I can't wait to help you plan your Disney vacation!
