Disney's Spirit of Aloha ---------------------- Notable lists of 'Worst Ever' include Worst movie: Plan Nine From Outer Space Worst tv show: My Mother the Car - Worst theme park: New Jersey Worst Lyrics: MacArthur Park Spirit of Aloha deserves the title of worst Disney Show I have been to Disneyland and DisneyWorld at least ten times (and twice on the Disney Cruise) and generally most shows and rides are very good. I can't remember any that I would give a below average rating. I've also been to Hawaii several times and been to a few Luaus and while the food isn't that great the shows are close to authentic and pretty good. The Spirit of Aloha recommends you be there 45 mins before the show starts. This is for their convenience, not yours. You begin in your first of three queues. The first is to sign in and get your assigned seats, the second is the queue for the picture in front of their sign, and the third is a waiting area where there is a cash bar. We were seated in Category 1 but at the table farthest from the stage. I asked the waiter if my 5 and 9 year old would be able to see and he enthusiastically said yes. I took his word for it even though there were 8 adults in front of them. When the show began I don't think they could see anything and they took no notice of it at all. Thankfully their young eyes were spared from the travesty that was about to begin. The first 90 minutes of the show were a lame 'Hawaiian' band, the show itself and periods of awkward silence. The show could be described as a high school Hawaiian play. They brought out every corny move in the world. *Lets have all the kids come up and dance Five minutes later *Lets have all the people with birthdays come up and dance Five minutes later *Lets have all the couples with anniversary a come up and dance Then the show progressed with the 'adult' section I believe. The lead girl tore off her dress to reveal a bikini and the lead guy ripped off his shirt and said something like "check out these volcanoes!" while flexing his biceps Then it ended with the Hawaii 5 0 theme song Okay first 90 minutes over and I've been to a Luau where there have been no grass skirts, no fire dancers, no authentic costumes or songs. Check please! We gave the waiter a generous tip (he was pretty good) and left as fast as we could. I knew beforehand that the last part of the show was the best but there was no way it could have gone from zero to a hundred. We salvaged the evening by watching the 9:30 fireworks on the beach of the Polynesian hotel which was very cool. If the last 30 mins of the show are so good why did they have to have 90 mins of pure crap beforehand? The food was about what I expected. Bread and salad and then below average chicken, rice and ribs and then jello chocolate pudding formed into pyramids for dessert. It was actually better that I expected but still it was cafeteria food served to 500 people at once. Reviewers who say the food was exceptional are really out to lunch. How can you possibly feed that many people at once and have any type of quality. But it was still okay... we ate a lot of bread If you must goto this show, try to show up late. There was a group that showed up an hour late next to us and they still received all the same food as us and were spared the first hour of the horror show.
