Over the years, we have been to several luaus on the different islands with family and friends. On this occasion we brought two friends who had never been to the islands; we felt that although some of the luaus were a bit on the touristy,...More

It's on a first come first serve basis. We got there about 45 minutes before check-in started and were close to the front of the line. If you want to pay the extra for preferred seating you pay at the time they check you in.
