large party of 14 - had tables in wonderland - got a discount for the second show. we were on the top level - seating 3 - I didn't have a problem seeing and I was the last one seated at back of table all the way in the back, the last seat. others in my party complained they couldn't see. I wasn't disappointed in the food or show, just upset that my family didn't enjoy it for the amount of money I paid. I should have gotten down front but it would have cost me an additional $200. I did enjoy Ohana's more. we did that last year. Nice to try once. The fire dancer did a great job and it was nice seeing the different dances from other islands. I enjoyed eating outside even though it poured, we did not get wet and there was a delay in the show. I did feel like I was on the island.

Pros:

surroundings - beautiful gardens

Cons:

not being able to see

We enjoyed the later show, which wasn't very crowded. The food was plentiful and very tasty. This isn't gourmet food, but it's well prepared. The servers were fantastic. The show is a good family friendly show with some audience participation. I felt bad for the performers because their small audience was more interested in their food than the audience participation.

Pros:

Lots of food, fun show

Cons:

not the best dessert

I read some reviews that the show was cheesy, but I thought the show and food was good. The food was served family style there was plenty of food and the dessert was very good. I would recommend to do the dinner show at least once especially if you are on the dining plan.

Pros:

show

Cons:

none

We attended the late show on 24 August 2013. This was the first time we attended this dinner show. The food was not bad but just not spectacular. My son enjoyed the chicken but there are other menu options for children who do not like the main menu. The show was good, family entertainment. There was just enough audience participation. The fire dancer was great and well worth seeing. I would definitely go to this dinner show again.

Pros:

Show esp. Fire Dancer

Cons:

Food

I finally saw this show recently while at WDW after having it on my bucket list for a while. Unfortunately, I didn't think the show lived up to the hype. Don't get me wrong, the show is fun. Unfortunately, because I went to the Polynesian Cultural Center while I was in Oahu last year, the traditional dances were versions of ones I had seen there. I have never really liked luau food, so I wasn't there for that. Of the dancers, the fire dancer was phenomenal!

If you've never been to Hawaii, this is a great show. If you have, you won't see many new things.

Pros:

The show

Cons:

Food

I just attended the luau last month. I've been quite a few times over the years -and enjoy it. The show is very good - the best part is the second half when they actually do the dances of the different islands -and the fire dancer! I still miss the characters - which was wonderful when my girls were young! The food is okay - but was told that it is changing and the ribs are back! As of last week. They also changed dessert to a bread pudding - like at 'Ohana's - which is excellent! Looks like the managers are finally listening to the guests and the cast members who have been complaining about the food. Hope they keep up the changes -which will bring back the guests that were disappointed last time they attended.

Pros:

Show - service

Cons:

food

It's a fun show and yes it is cheesy, but that is the fun of it. We happened to go last November right after the menu changed and it was not good. When we went 2 years ago, the food was good, but this last time it bordered unacceptable.

I think if you have not gone before try for the entertainment knowing it is cheesy, but do not go for the food.

Pros:

Fun

Cons:

Food

We went in February 2013 - there were 12 of us, including children aged 4, 6, 7, 8, and 12. It was a dismal evening - raining and a bit chilly.

The staff was wonderful - provided everyone with ponchos for the walk through the rain to the stage area (our 4-year-old told everyone to put on their "nachos").

While the food may not be the best at Disney, it was plentiful and tasty. Our waitress (one for our whole table) was superb!!!

Most of the adults had seen the show at some point in the past, so we had more fun watching the kids, who loved it.

We had several allergies at our table and they were handled professionally and courteously by the staff.

It was a great evening, despite the nasty weather, and we appreciated the positive aspects.

Pros:

Service

Cons:

Food not the greatest

The food here was good, was worried about picky eaters, but the pork and chicken were not over-powering. The Roset and Chardonay were not sweet. Tried a spritzer, it was also very bitter. It was cold during our show, only in the 50's.

Pros:

Food was good, show was good

Cons:

Wine, temperature
