We saw the show back in 2009. Food was ok, show was ok. Preffered the show over at seaworld TBH, but that was not great either. At the disney one, ended up passing the time working out which of the female dancers looked the most butch.

Once seen, not interested on going back to see it again EVER.

Just had a coffee over laptop screen moment!

Settled on CM as the last spot now. Coral Reef will have to wait for another trip.

We went last year. It had been raining heavily so the audience participation took place where we sat rather than on stage. Food was OK, beer was plentiful (but not as plentiful as at Hoop ) We enjoyed the show - the men looked lovely in those snug shorts and it was nice to stagger back to our room at the Poly. Not sure I'd bother again, but it was good to do once and we still talk about how the girls manage to move their hips that fast?!

Hey folks -

Just curious about something. Reservation is made for 5:15 - does that mean arrive at 5:15 or show starts at 5:15?

Is it different to Hoop? if the Hoop time is 5:15pm then thats the time the doors open, you need to be there before that to check in.

Yup you have to check in too, but doesn't really matter as the whole process takes 20 minutes for everyone. Seating is pre assigned too, so your in the section you paid for.

It must be different from Hoop then, there you have to be checked in before the doors open, show starts within minutes of being seated, for a 5:15 show you need to be there 20-30 mins before to do check in and have photo taken (if wanted) all done before doors open.

Aloha procedure was the same as hoop - check in, line up for photo, then wait to go into theatre.

I'd get there 20 /30 mins before show start time. We did last month.

Weird, we stayed at Fiji, our balcony faced the show entrance, never saw a line. We went 5 minutes before, had no problems, but still had to wait to sit.
Best to arrive a bit early then, it was November then, might be busier now,

aloha luau dinner show

I haven't done this since I was a kid. I am excited to have my kids experience this even if it is cheesy. They are picky eaters and the menu looks right up their alley. Can Not Wait!
