Overview

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.

Disney is extraordinary place. Most shows, dinners and events over the top, brilliantly conceived and extraordinary. This show would not make it as a Highschool play even if my kid was in it! The only thing worse than show was food. Inedible, bland uncooked ribs,...More

Don't bother paying for the on the floor seating, the theater is pretty small. All you can eat cafeteria quality food and drinks. The show started off as typical Disney storybook, but I will say the Native dancers put on an exciting performance.

I did because the show was such a joke that this was only way to not get out of my seat and embarrass the “cast”.
