This is something else that we haven't done.
After seeing a real luau, I'm afraid I will be comparing Disney's to the one I've seen.
Do Disney characters take part as well or is it just dancers?
It's changed several times... it HAS been lilo and stitch but now it's back to what they claim is authentic. No, I dont think it would compare well to a proper Luau but for Disney and a bit of mindless fun, it's good
So it's mainly dancers and they tell a story of a young woman who is leaving the island for the first time and they're having a going away party for her. Throughout that, they have dancing from the various islands and a fire eater.
The food is... well... basic and you wouldn't go for that. the show is not going to really amaze you but for me, I get there, turn brain off, get some wine, sit back and watch
I have a bit of a bee in my bonnet over a couple of items which I try not to let get to me...
1. even in full price, tier 1 seating, you can be sat a few tables back trying to see past people OR you can be sat behind a large pole from floor to ceiling which is a complete pain
2. if the weather is cold, rather than abandon it and refund, they cut the show incredibly short and it's all done inside 50mins-1hour (half as long as usual). they do hardly any dancing, meals are served and taken away quickly and it's a real con. As much as cancelling is disappointing, it'd be better than feeling conned

I do it perhaps twice each visit so I must like it ;-)
If the negatives are done with, the positives are that it's a friendly, funny show. Light and easy to watch and enjoy. All you can eat/drink including wine/beer and the dancers are really great
We keep telling ourselves that we're going to try something new; either the BBQ or the Luau, but at the end of the day we always end up booking HDDR...we can't help ourselves! Ultimately, I think we're creatures of habit, but I also don't care for the idea that both the BBQ and the luau are outside...Originally Posted by Britchick, post: 329844, member: 39
Having done the real thing in Hawaii several times we've never done WDW's. I'm afraid we'"d be disappointed.

yeah it's really hard to argue with any of those points. The hoop dee doo is a "better" experience IMHO but I think if you've never tried it before, give the luau one go. Don't expect it to be hawaii authentic or anything else, just turn off all preconceptions and you'll have a light, entertaining evening's entertainment
What is it about the outside bit that worries you? I'd just say that, although the stage itself is mostly outside, the actual seating area is covered and once you're sitting in the middle of that, you wouldn't really think of it as outside. It's certainly not sitting on a beach or something like that.Originally Posted by Johnie, post: 329911, member: 92
