“It couldn't get any worse”
Reviewed 5 September 2007

This is absolutely the worst dinner show I have ever seen. The Luau at the Disney World Polynesian Resort was better but that doesn't say much.

First, the Lounge Lizzard MC was creepy, the male dancers looked like they came from the Gong Show. They couldn't keep time with the beat even if someone was hitting the clubs against their heads. The food was also awful and the drinks were so week I teaspoon of Nyquil would have more alcohol in it.

This was the last night of our trip and it was the worst thing to remember of our vacation. Take my word, stay clear of this Luau.

If you are looking for a luau go to the Old Lahaina Luau. It is rated the best. Unfortunately the night we wanted to go they were sold out.

But stay clear of the Grand Hyatt Luau.
