    So, what can you tell me about the show and food? We've never done this and want to try some different things this time. :)

    oh oh ME ME call on ME!!! :mental:

    We always do this show at least once or twice. First off, forget it being a "proper" luau. It's not, it's a cute little disney show.

    Then the food. It's now salad, chicken, ribs, rice and then pineapple bread pudding. In other words, don't go hungry expecting a great meal ;-) it's "OK" but I've been to mcdonalds on the way back more than once :lol:

    The show is a gentle, turn brain off and drink some wine, type of Disney affair. It centres on a young woman who is moving away from the island to go to work/school far away and the island is having a celebration in her honour. They do quite a good job of entertaining in between courses :)

    Finally there's a lot of polynesian dancing from different islands and a fire dancer who is the star of the show (and he knows it).

    It's a tradition for us and we've seen it change over the years. Sadly the wine is cheaper, the pudding is not as much fun etc. so why still go?

    Well, it's consistently fun and I find it relaxing. There's nothing challenging or worrying or intellectually demanding :lol: it's literally a turn brain off, sit back, drink and enjoy. For someone like me who finds it's hard to let go and relax that's worth its weight in gold.

    Thank you, Keith. :) Would you say it was worth a DDP (paid, not free) double table points?

    Well, the food isn't. You'd definitely get a much better use of 2*ddp going to yachtsmans steakhouse for example.

    ...but I'd say if you've not done it before then yeah, why not! (have you been to the hoop dee doo?)

    Thanks, Keith. As food is the important bit for Pete maybe we'll stick to the Hoop De Doo. :)
