Overview
More
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 never really disappoints...The Spirit of Aloha is not a traditional luau, but is more of a theme park dinner theater show. We had 14 people in our group and really enjoyed the show and food. The service was very attentive, even to children's needs...More

The food is awful, the service is rushed and not very Disney-like in the accommodation area. The show is so outdated and hokey. The seating makes it difficult to see the show-lots of big poles in the way. Even with our Tables In Wonderland discount,...More

Our friends told us we had to try the Disney Luau at the Polynesian. We just disowned them! You check in at the hotel and then they herd you toward the Polynesian village where the Luau is held. You are seated in a massive structure...More

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

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

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.

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.
