Sometimes when you’re in Disney World you just need somewhere to decompress for a little bit. One of our favorite places for that is at Trader Sam’s at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. Trader Sam’s actually has two locations, an indoor bar (Trader Sam’s Grogs Grotto) which offers fun and unique entertainment, and an outdoor bar (Trader Sam’s Tikki Terrace) which has great views of Magic Kingdom and Seven Seas Lagoon.
We love hanging out at Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace when we want a break from the chaos that you can sometimes encounter in Disney World. Trader Sams has fun drinks with different glasses to represent each item. We recently went there in hopes for a snack so we asked our server if we could speak with a chef or coordinator to see what is vegan on the menu.
Quickly the manager came out to speak with us and assured us that the Rainbow Roll on the menu is vegan as is. He also said they can make the Lettuce Wraps with tofu instead of chicken, and the Bahn Mi Sliders with tofu and no mayo. We ordered a Rainbow Roll and the Lettuce Wraps.
The Rainbow Roll we have had before years ago and it has changed a bit since then. The roll is topped with avocado and filled with cucumber and carrot.
The Lettuce Wraps were really great. The cubed tofu was in a hoison sauce and there was plenty for the two of us to share. The vegetables that came with it were pickled and full of flavor. The tofu was pretty firm too, which is usually our preference.
This is a great place to relax and enjoy a snack. You can see Happily Ever After here at night and they even pump the music to the bar. We also enjoy catching the live ukelele music in the afternoon.
Review from October 2018.
Thank you so much for continuing to search out vegan options at Disney. There are many places I wouldn’t have tried before reading your reviews. Its frustrating that they don’t just go ahead and list on the menu the available substitutions (such as subbing tofu, or leaving off a sauce, etc.). Seems like it would save them time too having to explain options to vegan folks. Anyway, thanks again 🙂
