This will be a very long day filled with activities. The property is all handicapped accessible and the staff is very accommodating. I recommend that you plan the day at the Polynesian Cultural Center after you have given yourself time to recuperate from traveling to the islands. I would recommend that you follow your activities with a more relaxing day as well. You will be tired, but it is a day filled with various activities. Our tour bus Guide picked us up at the hotel. His name was Patrick and he was was a wealth of knowledge explaining many sites as we passed them in route to the center. Several of the people employed at the center are college students attending Brigham Young University. Their work there supports the cost of tuition. In the evening we attended a traditional luau. Early in the day we got to see a pig placed in the pit and cooked. They presented the roasted pig for us to view at the luau. However, I do not believe that it was part of that pork served at the meal. There was a parade down the river with people dressed in costumes associated with the island they represented. We even got to see a young man climb a coconut tree and pick coconuts. At the end of the day we attended musical production. The seats in the theater are similar to a baseball stadium seating style. I found them very uncomfortable, but still worth watching the show. Our tour guide was very sweet. At the end of the day we did not want to say goodbye. Thank God for social media, because now we are friends on Facebook. It has been wonderful keeping in touch and the concept of Ohana carried was back to the mainland with us.
