Yea that mug is my holy grail.

http://www.tikiroom.net/gallery/marked/ahg

But to be precise. It is from the Polynesian RESORT and not the Polynesian VILLAGE.

Disney changed the name in the 90s so this mug is not very old. I guess that the white goblet from the Village is so much more prevalent is because it was sold in the 70s when tiki was still relatively popular and this one from the Resort was sold in the 90s when tiki was dead.

Does anyone know if this mug was sold in the lobby gift-shop or was it included with a drink during the luau diner show.

thats a good point Phil- it is actually marked "resort"

I didnt know the timeline of the name change or that the hotel did in fact change its name- hmmmm


I have no idea where the mugs originated from in its day, if they were even sold there or if they were restaurant ware.

I had heard rumours that the gift shop was, or was going to be selling them again, but i have not seen this with my own eyes. I doubt it.

Either way, its a nice heavy quality piece, and you can see the tiki the design came from right as you pull into the entrance driveway.

some good info on the polynesian resort here:

I was at the resort a couple of weeks ago. There's some mugs in the new gift shop, but they're pretty much standard issue.

Congratulations, Humuhumu!

You and Kevin look absolutely smashing in your photoshoot. (and I like the green dress even better than the purple one). Lucky Girl!

Congrats Humu - that's great news! The pics are awesome.

I especially like the "Polynesian Gothic":

Great stuff, Humu! What a great story, what great pics! You are so the right person in the right place to make something like that happen! So, we can add fashion model to the growing list of talents/occupations?
