Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show is an all-you-care-to-eat...

Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show is an all-you-care-to-eat, family-style luau featuring hula dancing and a fire-knife performer at Disney's Polynesian Resort.Situated on the Seven Seas Lagoon, the open-air covered dining theater provides a comfortable setting for authentic music and dances, with beautiful costumes, irresistable rhythms and the show-stopping fire-knife dance! The many nations of the South Pacific unite in an evening of spellbinding magic that tells the tale of a native girl returning to her people and her traditions.You'll almost believe you've been transplanted to the tropics as you and your loved ones share platters of authentic foods such as barbequed pork ribs, roast chicken, fresh pineapple, salad with mango poppy seed dressing garnished with Mandarin oranges, Polynesian-style rice and seasonal vegetables. Save room for the chocolate ""mouse"" volcano! (Parents of finicky little ones, fear not: There's a limited children's menu). Beer, wine and soft drinks are included for Guests 21 years of age or older (picture ID required). Celebrations are acknowledged in the show.

We went to this show last week, service was far from attentive, I had to flag down the server to get a refill of my drink, my husbands wine was swill and undrinkable. Food was very mediocre, the salad and bread pudding were the best of the meal. The show didn't hold our interest and we left before the end.... More

This is definitely a must do at Disney- I absolutely loved the food, although it wasn't as authentic as it could have been the food was still delicious.The show itself was awesome and included a fire dancer which was pretty epic. I would recommend to families with older children and adults.

This was our least favorite of all the shows that we saw. The food was ok; nothing to rave about. We enjoyed the ambiance of the show and that was nice. This was a one and done type show. But if you're not planning on visiting Hawaii, I'd try this one.

We sat down and already on the table was water, and the salads. Wine and beer was included. The wine was terrible. I don't know why they include it? It wasn't even drinkable. The mains were good, and you could eat as much as you wanted. I did not eat the dessert, as I am Gluten Free, but they did... More

We were second tier (so 2 table service meals on dining plan). We had a perfect view of the stage and the show which was lively and interactive but at appropriate times, giving plenty of chance to enjoy the food. I had seen reviews about lack of food and drinks, as it's an unlimited food and drinks service. From being... More

I brought my family here, including my two sons (4, 7) for the early showing. Upon arrival there was a long line to check in and then a fairly long walk to theatre area. There was kid friendly fare and plenty of food to eat for adults including pulled pork, roasted chicken, ribs, salad, pineapple, and nonalcoholic drinks included with... More

We just got back from our trip to Disney. We stayed at the Polynesian and had dinner one night at the Spirit of Aloha show. We loved it. We got married in Maui and went to a luau there and I'd say the dances at Spirit were comparable. Yes, it's a bit campy, but it's mostly for kids and families.... More

We had tier one seating. Just means first level with several tables in front of you. Man, hundreds of people. Not like the old days. It's in its own building now. Waited in the heat for an hour to get in. Few places to sit. Food was not very good. More like a cheap BBQ. The show seemed to go... More

I don't care that some of the snobbier posters said this was campy or juvenile or whatever. They most likely aren't paid critics and newsflash- this is Disney...it's meant to be fun for the FAMILY...not just someone who thinks they have a refined sense of what is art. Ok...rant over! This was probably the most fun we had outside of... More

We really didnt have a good time at this show. we had cat 3 seating because thats all that was left and it was very hard to see. For how much you are paying to eat here all seats should have a good view in my opinion. When we got to our table it wasnt even big enough for all... More
