Walt Disney World POP! Quiz – Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto











1. From which attraction does the owner of Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto originate?

  1. Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room
  2. Jungle Cruise – I will let you read for yourself the backstory of Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto! This fun little story can be found in the very front of the drink menu.


2. What is the name of the giant clam on the right hand side of the bar?

  1. Shelly – In true Disney fashion, Shelly is no ordinary Giant Clam! Like many items around Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, Shelly is an interactive element that opens and produces a beautiful large pearl that the bartender then uses to serve The Polynesian Pearl alcoholic beverage.
  2. Pearl
  3. Clamerella



3. The tiki deity that appears when the Uh-Oa! drink is ordered could originally be found in which Magic Kingdom attraction?

  1. Jungle Cruise 
  2. Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room
  3. The Enchanted Tiki Room: Under New Management – For those of us lucky (?) enough to remember this attraction, the tiki deity that appears at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto is the same one that Iago angered into making an appearance during The Enchanted Tiki Room: Under New Management show.


4. True or False: No pictures of Walt Disney can be found at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto. Take the time to really walk around the (smallish) space of Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto to check out all the details. Hearkening back to the prolific amount of props that could once be found in The Adventurer’s Club, the walls at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto are full of unique items to investigate. Books, pictures, props, and other fun finds are located everywhere! There are some wonderful black and white pictures of Walt Disney during the production of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.


5. True or False: Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto offers souvenir cups/mugs. At Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto everything is carefully themed – even the mugs! Specialty alcoholic beverages are served in fun, detailed Tiki inspired glassware. Like all things Disney, these mugs have become extremely valuable collectibles. All specialty alcoholic beverages can be purchased one of two ways; drink only or drink and the mug. Unfortunately, guests are unable to purchase just the tiki mugs, which was a bit of a bummer during our trip because we just couldn’t drink that much alcohol! In addition, there are no drink substitutions allowed.
