Do you get dragged on stage at the Spirit of Aloha?
I love audience participation as long as it doesn't involve me :eek:

Dont worry they dont drag you on stage. They ask if anyone is celebrating something special such as anniversaries, honeymoon, birthdays etc. You can participate but they dont force you.

A fun part of the show is when they ask people to go up on stage and learn hawaiian dancing. The children really enjoy this and they run up to participate.

It is a good and entertaining show. :smiley4:

Did you notice any tables for two when you were there?

Yes there are tables for two. We have been on a table for two at the front,middle and near the back. You can see the show from wherever you are sitting.

The show is good and the poly is a lovely hotel. :smiley5:

Do you mind my asking how much it is now to attend the Luau? It's been so long since I've checked I don't really know anymore. :sorry:

We have booked for January 1st. Thanks for putting my mind at rest about the audience participation Keith.

Thanks.....I'm sure I'm going to love it. The guy I spoke to on the phone said there were no characters here which I thought there was but, I will still enjoy!

For category one seating, it was $123.98 including tax for two adults.

Oh! Well that's not dreadful! Does that include alcoholic drinks too? Surely not?

It does indeed although pinning your server down to ask for more can be problematic :lol:

Is it really worth seeing, I've always shied away from it because we've saw one in Hawaii and I'm worried I'll compare the two.

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I think Disney have worked hard to avoid the comparison by Disney'ing it up a bit :) the seaworld luau was more authentic than the disney one IMHO.

Worth seeing... well it's not an absolutely must do every trip, but its a fun way to spend a relaxing evening

I went to the one at seaworld quite a few years ago and although it was good I preferred the poly spirit of aloha. :):)

We might give it a go, although I'm probably too late for an ADR now, I might look at the itinerary and see if we can fit it in.

We've been to the one at Seaworld. (Free tickets). We enjoyed it for the most part. Food wasn't that great and we weren't thrilled at sharing our table (but we're shy and withdrawn like that).

It's nice to know that you preferred the Polynesian Luau. :yes:

ahhhh yes, tis a good point indeed that Tink. The tables at the Seaworld one are all long with many people so it's a very social experience (although once the show gets going, most people are too wrapped up to natter much).

Still though, it's a good pint, we didn't much like being on one long table with loads of others who we didnt know
