Thanks for the heads-up! I have been wanting one of these almost as much as a T-shirt specific to Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar (whenever Disney finally gets around to it). I may pick one up tonight
Cheers!

Sam's has 3 seasonal drinks on the menu right now--if you haven't gotten there yet this season do so soon--

This is a "Red nosed zebra" and it takes like a not-so-sweet strawberry daiquiri (does that even make sense??)


and my favorite the "Tropical snowstorm". When you order this it snows outside the "windows"


There is a 3rd drink called the Jingle Bells which is pretty good too but I was too tipsy to remember to take a pic

Does anyone happen to the the Trader Sam's music list for Christmas, or even the regular one for that matter?

Just saw something about this yesterday. I'm taking the plunge and "pre-ordering" a mug through someone on ebay. They're supposed to go purchase some and then ship them out once they're released. We'll see how that plays out. I imagine there'll be a huge demand for these, especially if they stay exclusive only to the west coast.

People were lined up before 8am and the mug has sold out as of this evening. I'm certain there will be more shipments coming in.

From MousePlanet.com

"...Disney has filed a permit to expand the "Tangaroa Terrace – Tiki Bar," otherwise known as Trader Sam's. The permit appears to add a new bar indoors, but move some storage and a walk-in refrigerator to the basement level, to the space that was formerly a wine cellar. It's unclear whether this would provide additional seating or dining space for the already cramped bar.

..In other Tiki news, Dole Whips are finally available for Disneyland visitors outside of Adventureland. The Coffee House at the Disneyland Hotel, possibly in a move to lure customers now that a second Starbucks has opened in Downtown Disney, now serves Dole Whip soft-serve and Dole Whip floats, just like you can find outside the Enchanted Tiki Room. For those so inclined, you can also order your Dole Whip with a splash of rum, an option not available inside Disneyland."

Ehhhh...really hoping they leave Sam's as-is. I'd hate to see it torn up to any degree. Even if it were truly expanded, I'm not sure if it would help vastly in accommodating larger crowds. Thanks for the share!

I agree with Keith. I'm sure Disney see nothing but $$$ based on the popularity of Sam's, though.

MAYBE -and I'm just shamelessly fanwanking here- they could convert the Tangaroa Terrace side into a smaller version of WDW's Skipper Cantina. It could serve a similar purpose to be capitalized upon like expanding Sam's, but maintain a separate space.

Dedicated Sam's aficionados want to be in Sam's but a cantina next door could service overflow and others who want drinks and light food, but don't necessarily have the specific desire that it has to be within Sam's.

Hi Finky, the place you're mentioning is the Jungle Navigation Skipper Canteen, not Cantina. It is a sit-down table service restaurant in the Magic Kingdom, and being where it is, there is no alcohol served. I'm with KK, leave Sam's and Tangaroa Terrace, add more wonderfully themed locations in Downtown Disney along the lines of Jock Lindsey's. There really are no alternatives, so of course Sam's is packed.

An update on the permit and construction:

After speaking with some cast members at both Tangaroa Terrace and Trader Sam's, the construction will be to improve the available service outside on the patio. This, to me, is very much needed and will be hugely welcome! Tangaroa Terrace is losing space on the inside - pretty much the space currently occupied by the out of commission touch screens for ordering. Even though Tangaroa Terrace doesn't make money (not compared to Sam's) it is still a much needed service for hotel guests. I'm glad I'm not losing my loco moco because it's my favorite thing to eat at the resort.

As far as Sam's is concerned, they're getting roughly 3 wells outside which will mean MUCH improved drink service and reducing the wait time for drinks outside and likely the pool. There is also a plan to have a limited seating outdoor bar, akin to the terrace at Grog Grotto in Florida. This will be taking the mentioend space from Tangaroa Terrace and potentially have 6-8 bar seats. Grog Grotto's terrace was supposed to have seats at their bar but they've yet to have been added and I doubt that they ever will be. Either way, seats or not, the added bar outdoors will redefine my consideration of drinking outside on a nice evening.
