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.

While on vacation at Walt Disney World, we took our teens to the luau at the Polynesian resort. My husband and I both had fond childhood memories of the luau and wanted to share this with our children. I was very disappointed in the food (especially since the tickets are pricey). The lettuce in the salad was browning. The ribs... More

Lawrence Welk meets Disney! The show was mediocre and the food was like going to a bad wedding. We left before it was over.

Having been to a few Luaus in Hawaii this show is a little corny, but our kids had never been to a luau. The dancers were great, the band was awesome, food was pretty good, service was excellent, but the goofy beach blanket (Disney style theatrics) were what lost me. Fun if you've never been to or seen a Hawaiian... More

After speaking with friends who previously visited this show, we were concerned with the quality of food. We were pleasantly surprised. Everything we had was great and there was a good selection for little kids as well. The show was cute...we couldn't hear the speaking super great but got the gist. Of course, the best part of the show was... More

The show was just ok. I was ready to leave before it was over. The food had a lot to be desired. This is something Inwould not recommend for couples but if you have kids they include them and make it fun.

The food was NOT good! Salad was wilted and over dressed. Seemed to be sitting for a while. The ribs were ok. No one explained which meat was which. Waitress was very nice and attentive. Overall, if you are dying to see a Disney show with dinner(which was ok), then maybe it is for you. But if you are going... More

Visited here in the middle of the week. No problem getting tickets for the time we wanted. Had table on the stage level but would probably go for one step up next time. Chairs are shorter so tiers behind can see. Hard getting up when you get older! LOL! Food o=was fine and they kept bringing what you wanted refills... More

We took in this dinner show at the Polynesian and really enjoyed the experience. Its a long show, 2 plus hours so be ready. Its in an outdoor dinner theatre near the lake. The story itself is somewhat forced, but the dancers are amazing. Both the male and females dancers did a variety of south Asian island cultural dances that... More

We chose to see the Spirit of Aloha show because we wanted a dinner show during our visit to Walt Disney World, and we had previously seen the Hoop de Do Revue. We had a great time at the show! I had read some negative reviews of this show before attending, so I had set my expectations accordingly, but we... More
