Trader Sam's Shipwreck Shack is the home tiki bar of Brandon Kleyla, who served as the set decorator and show writer on both Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar in Anaheim and Trader Sam's Grog Grotto in Orlando.
Brandon and his wife decided their backyard needed a tiki bar, so that meant a full remodel. The patio was expanded to include a 5,500 gallon lagoon pool, waterfall, seating area, fire pit, and of course, a tiki bar. Without the legal restrictions of working on a public Disney property, Brandon was able to combine the lore of Trader Sam with some of his favorite films. The result is a story that wouldn't normally be seen on Disney property, incorporating Jaws, King Kong, and more.
Half of the bar is built from the sunken remains on the Orca, the boat from Jaws. The other half of the bar is built out of an old crate, similar to those seen in Raiders of the Lost Ark. The rest of the bar is ramshackled together in whatever the shipwrecked crew could find, and artifacts from their travels.
In addition to a Dole Whip machine, Trader Sam's Shipwreck Shack has a menu of 10 regular cocktails, including three non-alcoholic elixirs.
