Disney's Polynesian Village Resort


Tropical fruit, roasted chicken, island pork ribs, mixed vegetables, rice and pineapple bread; chicken tenders, PB&J sandwich, mac and cheese, and hot dogs available for children.


This show features South Seas–island native dancing followed by an all-you-can-eat “Polynesian-style” meal. The dancing is interesting and largely authentic, and the dancers are attractive but definitely PG-rated in the Disney tradition. We think the show has its moments and the meal is OK, but neither is outstanding.

The show follows (tenuously) the “girl leaves home for the big city, forgets her roots, and must rediscover them” theme. The performers are uniformly attractive (“Studmuffins!” said a female Unofficial researcher when asked about the men), and the dancing is very good. The story, however, never really makes sense as anything other than a slender thread between musical numbers. Our show lasted for more than 2 hours and 15 minutes.

The food does little more than illustrate how difficult it must be to prepare the same meal for hundreds of people simultaneously: The roasted chicken is better than the ribs, but neither is anything special. We conditionally recommend Spirit of Aloha for special occasions, when the people celebrating get to go on stage. But go to the early show and get dessert somewhere else in the World.

A well-traveled couple from Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, comments:

Spirit of Aloha was a beautiful presentation, better than some shows we have seen in Hawaii! The food, however, lacked in all areas. Better food has come out of Disney kitchens. During our visit, the fruit platter was chintzy, the honey-roasted chicken was a bit fatty, and the pineapple cake was dry.

Setting and Atmosphere

Long rows of tables, with some separation between individual parties. The show is performed on an outdoor stage, but all seating is covered. Ceiling fans provide some air movement, but it can get warm, especially at the early show.
