We visited the PCC with the Super Ambassador upgrade. This upgrade gave us a guide and limited our group size to just our family of six. The guide was personable and very informative, have come from one of the Polynesian islands, and attending BYU. We had reserved seats at all the main shows, and he got us there just in time for each show. The seats were up front, and in the shade. My son was even chosen as a "visiting chief" to the island of New Zealand, and was part of the ceremony. After touring the villages and learning about the different cultures, we had dinner at the prime rib buffet line. The selection was plentiful, and very good. Another benefit of the Super Ambassador upgrade was seating in a reserved section that was not crowded, and included a server to take care of beverages. (Note: no alcoholic beverages are served at the PCC). Following dinner we were escorted to an IMAX show, which was amazing. After that, we got a backstage tour of the evening presentation where we saw performers practicing, the costume prep area, and the props used in the show. That gave us an appreciation for the amount of effort to put on a production like that. From there, we were escorted to our seats, located right in front of the stage, another benefit of the upgrade package (along with a complimentary pineapple ice-cream during intermission). The evening show was quite an experience we won't forget.
The concept of the PCC is to provide scholarships to students from the islands in exchange for sharing their cultures with visitors. This helps preserve what has been handed down for generations, and provides the guests with a learning experience that can't be equalled. Since money spent there goes toward promoting education and scholarships, I thought the cost of admission and the upgrade was money well spent.
