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.

Where to begin... My wife, daughter and I scheduled the Luau way in advance, and made special request for seating in the very front at the stage (the fee was higher of course) . Upon arrival we were told the the seating we requested was on a first come first serve basis.. Ok,, we sat and nibbled on the appetizers... More

We went here beavuce my boyfriend remembered it from when he was a boy (about 20+ years ago) and wanted us to see it. Our group consisted of 3 adults, and 4 kids - 12, 11, 9 and 4. We came in late due to being told the wrong time but the staff were very accommodating and brought us up... More

I've been to this show twice, the first was over 10 years ago, when there was no story, no explanation, just traditional dancing, the second was last night where the show and the food has certainly changed. Though I've read many complaints about the first half of the show (done while your meal is being served and eaten), I actually... More

We booked our dinner here for July 2014. Right off the bat, I wasn't thrilled with the idea of leaving our stroller at the top of the long walkway down to the dinner area (of course there was a storm brewing). We were told all strollers would be moved out of the rain. Well they were, but not in time... More

Our party comprised of three adults and a 4.5 yr old. The food was average. It was family style. If you have a picky eater, order from the kid's menu. The wait staff was very nice and accommodating. My dad can't eat pineapples so they brought him a different dessert. Speaking of dessert, the bread pudding was my favorite part... More

This was our 2nd time seeing the show, the last time was 6 years ago. Never have I in my last 5 visits to Disney in 10 years experienced a rude employee until today. Viola, our server, was flat out rude. She clearly had better things to do than be at work. She actually rolled her eyes at my daughter... More

This luau is located at Disney's Polynesian Resort. The show itself is a little cheesy due to the storyline; but, it is Disney after all. I found the second half of the show most entertaining because the dancers performs dances from different parts of Polynesia and the Pacific islands. The food was pretty good, and everything is served family style... More

The good: You will probably enjoy this, even if you've been to traditional luaus in Hawaii, just don't expect a top notch show or food like you would get in Hawaii. The food was good...pulled pork, chicken, & ribs, served family style and all you can eat. First course was salad, pineapple, Hawaiian slaw, and a cold noodle salad. Dessert... More

In true Disney fashion, service was great. As soon as we arrived we were greeted with leis. The staff quickly checked us in and directed us towards the show area. They advised us that the if the weather further deteriorated the show would be cancelled and we would receive a refund. The walk out to the show was uncovered which... More

A review recently posted by Jay Darin pretty much mirrors my experience with this show and the food. I saw it as a little girl (way too many years ago) and was eager to bring my children. However, the show seems to drag on. The cast members do their best, but a show over 2 hours is tough for kids... More
