Walt Disney World is upping the holiday ante with what they’re calling a “first edition” Trader Sam’s Nutcracker, Tiki mug that they are calling “Jungle All the Way.”
This mug will be available on December 2 starting at 3PM EST at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto and the Tiki Terrace.
Here’s Disney’s tweet.

It is limited one per guest.
Now, what people find strange is that Disney is calling this a “First Edition” but as other people have pointed out, that isn’t necessarily true.
I think it’s that the other versions were “Disneyland” and this one will be marked “Walt Disney World.” So it’s basically the same mug, but it’s the “first edition” for Walt Disney World.
Here’s what they’re saying on Twitter:

Took a very similar pic two years ago. Hopefully we get a new mug next year! pic.twitter.com/YOjls1SylQ

So it is a little bit confusing.
One thing we know for sure, there is going to be a long line, people somehow walking away with more than one and most of them ending up on eBay.
Beat the rush and go to eBay now. They have them on there already from the other years.
Trader Sam. Too much of a toxic stereotype to stay in the attraction but not too much of one to cash in on for a quick money grab.
