I'm just wondering if any of you who have recently been there have seen the new Poly Luau dinner show. I only read one review and it kinda suggested that the food wasn't as good as it used to be and the show seemed a bit watered down (then again it was on the "soft" initial opening). I was hoping some of you could tell me otherwise or if it's really true. Thanks guys!

I haven't been to this version of the show. We would have gone if it not only had songs from Lilo & Stitch but the actual Characters, too. Plus, I would have liked to have seen Minnie in her cute grass skirt like she is in the Beach Party at Walt Disney World video. In part of that, Disney Characters and kids arrive by boat to the Polynesian Resort, learn to do the hula and have a wild party on the Polynesian beach, complete with the Electrical Water Pageant in the background!

Get it from Amazon.com now!

I heard the food was about the same (which I enjoyed in the past) but maybe a little better and now I guess they serve some appetizers before the show. I also heard the show was a little more upbeat than the old one but still with some of the traditional dances.

I spoke to a few people who went to the preview show.

Aloha

I have been to the new luau and the food is exactly the same as the old one. The show however is extremely different :sleepy:
I don't have any kids and was bored to death with the first half of the show. the other half though was awesome. they had a new fire dancer and a couple of new dance moves.

Yoo Hoo and aloha, Sparkles!

Welcome to the Disney Echo! Here, let me presentyou with a mouse-eared lei:


Even though you don't have kids, do you think the luau would be improved if they added Lilo & Stitch to it?

Yeah I do think so..I love Lilo and Stitch! I understand Disney wanting to make the show more kid friendly..after all this is Walt Disney World. I just felt that the show lacked authenticity when they added that forced storyline..
I LOVED the old luau!

Thanks for the reply and your comments, sparkles!

I thought Lilo and Stitch was part of the new show. That is why I booked it for this trip.

I don't know how I am going to break this new to my four year old. She Loves Lilo and Stich. To be honest, I saw the old luau a long time ago and almost fell asleep. I hear the second half of the new one is more upbeat though. I can hear her now when she hears the music from the movie. She will be asking where they are.
