Haven't been to luau since early 1990s. Food was so-so and show was more like a Vegas revue (There were even guys there tucking $ bills into the dancers costumes!?! Our 6 yo son kept asking us for $$ so he could do the same!;) Not exactly the 'Disney' show we imagined!  Our now 17yo LOVES all things POLY and wants to try again...should we (we go in June) ORRRR.....is Ohana a better bet? Would love opinions.

Well out of the half a dozen times I have been to the luau over the past 10 years I have never seen them put money in the dancers costumes but if you say so.

I like to hit the luau about every other trip or so. I know the food does not get great reviews but I have found the food very good And I am very picky about food quality. I would not say it was a dinner at the Flying Fish but it was good food and it is all you can eat and drink. The menu is about the same but I guess they added some appetizers before the show out in the greeting area. I have heard good things about the new show also.

I would not put the show against ‘Ohana. They are two different things but if I had to choose I would go with the show. Only because I have not seen it yet but if I had I would go with ‘Ohana. We never miss ‘Ohaha but then again we never miss Kona Café.  

If you do the show I suggest hitting the early one. The late show ends very late. Just a suggestion.

Aloha

Steve

The luau has changed. But me, dw and boy(7,9) went to the luau a year ago. Like you said the food was so-so but the show was great. Ohana's is one of our favorite spots in all of Disney. The food is great. We eat there every time we go.

So if you want great food go to Ohana's if your looking for a nice show Luau

Just FYI. The CM's are trying to get people to stop calling it the Luau. Their managment even has to remind them not to call it that. It is not the Spirit of Aloha show. That way when you talk to a CM they will be happy you used the right name. In their last email they wanted me to pass along the info.

Aloha
