good job by staff and entertainers. Food was plentiful and good. Plenty of good seats and passing out the ponchos when it started to rain was a good touch. Good location for the luau.

Of course everyone wants to see a Luau while in Hawaii. Not sure why the ratings for this show are not better because it was AMAZING! We did the VIP access and sat front row and it was totally worth it.

Yes, you do have to wait in line and you do have a reserved table. For us, the wait was not very long but we we there in November.
