Vintage Polynesian glassware cup / bowl with bonus cat

My MIL has had these in her kitchen cupboards forever, from when they went to WDW in the late 1970s. They are quite sturdy things, thick frosted glass that seem fit for a nice-sized ice cream bowl but she says they were used for pina coladas. She said she bought them at a gift shop at the Polynesian. I had thought they were a souvenir bowl. The cat is Kahliah.

Yup and you can still get them but they are clear not frosted.

oh cool. I've admired hers for years. I'm hoping to get my paws on some of the souvenir glassware available. I'd also like to get menus but i'm not sure that will be permitted.

If they are paper menus yes, they usually let you keep them if you ask.

We were allowed to keep our menu from Cinderella's Royal Table! It never hurts to just ask! awesome

She's my baby! Earlier today she was curled up in the laundry basket on the dirty clothes. Right now she's watching me eat supper.

On our last trip to Downtown Disney, they have a store that sells stuff that you see at the resorts. Maybe not vintage, but worth checking out if you haven't already done so.

Those purple bowls look nice. Not sure we're going to DTD though. Is there a place in mk that sells the same stuff?
