“Aloha, ahoy, aha! And welcome to the mystery, romance, and adventure of Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar. Here, at the edge of civilization, a poisons dart’s throw from the deepest, darkest, most dangerous region where the hand of man has never step foot, my fearless friend Sam established this happy outpost for all to enjoy!"
"Who is Trader Sam? Why, he’s the head salesman of the jungle, the one who’s always ready to trade two of his heads for just one of yours! His expertise in head-shrinking potions grew into an interest in mixology. Bitten by the bartending bug (just one of thousands he's been bitten by), Sam searched the Amazon, Congo, Polynesia, and every tropical locale in-between for magical ingredients to mix into his delectable libations."
“In the tiki bar business, it’s a jungle out there. But once Trader Sam began serving his exotic elixirs to tourists, the word really spread! So welcome aboard…ashore…or wherever you are! Cheers! Drink Up! Tulleeho! Kanpai! Prost! Kungaloosh! Ooogy Wawa! And above all, enjoy the time you spend with us at the world-famous Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar."
My new favorite watering hole in Disneyland! Seriously, this place is a riot. It's truly a must for Disney fans who love a cocktail. The Jungle Cruise, the Enchanted Tiki Room, and the former (sniff, sniff) Adventure's Club at WDW all come together...after being soaked in a bit of rum!
The tiki mask embellishment was a labor of love. Mainly because of the rolled paper behind the mask. DCWV paper is very thick and doesn't roll easily. Needless to say, it took some time. When I had lots of paper rolls competed, I lashed them all together with twine. I love how it turned out!
A BIG thank you to Tami (Disneyland Diva) and Matt (Mr Diva) for not only introducing me to this little tiki haven but also going back to retrieve some cocktail umbrellas and swizzle sticks for this layout. I know it was tough to go back! ~wink~
