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.

The show is one of two halves: a "high school musical" show and then a showcase of some traditional dances. The traditional dancing is incredible. The food provided was pretty good (and in good quantity). Whilst the show I attended was an 8.15pm start we...More

Be sure to sign up early so you can get a good seat. The seats at the tables are very low so the table top is like at your chest. If you are sitting in the back grab an extra seat cushion (they have them...More

I recommend this show for a large group or family, not a date/dinner for two. Why? Because there's just too much food, but for $66 per person, there should be. They don't give you a choice really, as soon as you sit there's a platter...More

This was probably the most disappointing experience we have ever had at/with anything Disney related. The food was served cold and tasted horrible. The show was lackluster. Perhaps if you have never been to Hawaii or the Polynesian Islands it may be of some interest,...More

If we have category 3 seats (using 2 credits from dining plan), can we upgrade if seats are available once we get to the show?

We tried to do that when we were there a few weeks ago and we were only able to reserve cat 3. It's my understanding that with the dining plan you can only get seating in cat 2 or 3. It was a full house the night we went so... More

Do you have to have Disney tickets or stay at a Disney resort to attend the luau, or can we just drive to the hotel and go to the luau like you would with any other restaurant? Thanks!

You don't have to stay at a Disney property or have tickets to Disney World, but you do have to make reservations in advance, weeks ahead. It's very popular.

Can you tell me about the parking to the event. Do you park close to the show entrance ? Thanks,

The parking is at the Polynesian Hotel- plenty of spaces and not that far of a walk from the parking lot to the lobby and then out the back of the hotel to the show.
