Today, Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto inside Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort debuted a new tiki mug featuring the Hatbox Ghost.

Reports are that the retail price of the mug is around $30 and it can come filled with either the Grim Grinning Grog or non-alcoholic Foolish Mortal. The Grim Grinning Grog is made with Gosling’s Black Seal Rum, Barbancourt Pango Rhum, passion fruit-orange-guava juice, lime juice, blood orange, falernum, and angostura bitters. The Foolish Mortal has pineapple juice, orange juice, and grenadine with flavors of mango, guava, and ginger.


The Hatbox Ghost was stuff of legends for many years, but was finally added to the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland Park in 2015. The Haunted Mansion at the Mansion Kingdom does not include a Hatbox Ghost figure.

As always, quantities of this special mug are limited.
