Today, we’re sharing six must-try drinks at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto at Walt Disney World’s Polynesian Village Resort. Here’s what will happen when you order each drink!

  1. Krakatoa Punch — If you’ve ever wanted to watch a volcano erupt inside a bar, this is the drink for you. It’s spicy, delicious, and equipped with some fun special effects.
  2. Nautilus — This is a shareable beverage for two. If you order this one, the Grotto will be transformed into an underwater experience.
  3. Polynesian Pearl — If you order this one, keep your eye on the corner of the bar for a special treat. This is a great choice for those who love tropical and fruity bevs!
  4. HippopotoMai-Tai — Order this drink and a special visitor will come to your table. Be sure to yell “Two shots of rum!” when you order this one. Trust us!
  5. Zombie — This is the booziest drink on the menu. Ordering it will set off some creepy effects in the bar, so it’s great if you’re a fan of all things spooky.
  6. Uh-Oa — Order the Uh-Oa if you love a good show. It brings the most theatrics out of all the drinks, and yes, the drink comes on fire! It’s recommended for two or more people and offers fruity deliciousness with a kick.
