EVENT UPDATE (Thursday 9/29): Disney Dining has confirmed Trader Sam’s will not host Mahaloween this year. Bummer!
TIKI MUG UPDATE (Friday 9/09): they’re here! With rumors that the exclusive $30 collectible mugs are drawing wait lines of over 30 minutes at Trader Sam’s, the limited inventory of 2,500 might sell out sooner than we had hoped!
TIKI MUG UPDATE (Thursday 9/08): in addition to continued confirmation from Disney Dining for the 9/09 release of Trader Sam’s 2016 Hitchhiking Ghosts Tiki Mug, we now have more photos!
Wednesday 8/31: Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel (Anaheim’s legendary Polynesian-inspired watering hole) has hosted their MahaloWeen event for the last two spooky years.
Past events have included commemorative items such as an art print, t-shirt, kukui nut lei, and a signature drink with collectible tiki glass.
Will they announce a third annual event for 2016? As of today (8/31, exactly two months until Halloween) Disney Dining has confirmed that no event details have yet been released.
If MahaloWeen doesn’t take place again this year, tiki lovers can find comfort in knowing that a collectible tiki mug will still be available!
Starting Friday, September 9, 2016, the Hitchhiking Ghosts Tiki Mug will be available for purchase while supplies last. The totem-style tiki mug will feature the three famous Hitchhiking Ghosts from the Haunted Mansion, affectionately known as “Gus” (Prisoner), “Ezra” (Skeleton), and “Phineas” (Traveler).
