Smith's Tropical Luau Discount Tickets

A few years ago we were walking through Koloa and there was a little activities center there that was selling discount tickets for the luau. They were about 40 per person. Are they still there and is it a real deal or should we start clear of those types of offers? Has anyone ever used that type of ticket before?

I mean steer clear not "start" - silly auto correct on Kindle.

If you want a timeshare pitch, sure go for it.

If you want discount luau tickets, go online. You also don't need to attend the dinner, only the show if price is an issue.

Don't waste your precious vacation time on a timeshare pitch. Not worth it.

Anybody other than the activity itself who offers discounts... chances are good that they want to rope you into a timeshare presentation.

Buy the tickets directly from Smith and if do so two or more days in advance the price is reduced $10 per adult:

We went last Friday night after buying tickets on line (even though we couldn't print out our confirmation) they had no trouble dealing with it. I would suggest getting there for 4:45. First people in get the first tram rides around the property and then a choice of bench to sit and wait for Imu ceremony to. Start. The buffet dinner was really good. (If you sit near the liki washroom you will be able to walk up the path and get really good seats in the middle across from the stage. We really enjoyed the show. There is a live band and the dancers are very good. The fire dancer is amazing. It was really cold that night so pack a warm top in the car in case you need it. Dinner and show are under cover so rain isn't a big problem.
