Spirit of Aloha Polynesian Luau Dinner Review

The Spirit Of Aloha Polynesian Luau dinner was by far hands down my family's favorite dinner of our whole Disney World vacation! We loved every single detail from the lei greeting to the fire dancers to the delicious food. I would highly recommend this dinner show to anyone who loves Polynesian food, fun and anything tropical.
Pineapple-Coconut Bread and the amazing Hawaiian salad served with fresh pineapple slices

Roasted chicken, Polynesian rice, steamed vegetable medley (broccoli, carrots and green beans)
Dessert consisted of a delicious milk chocolate mousse. Unfortunately I did not take a picture of this before we devoured it!
Details: There are 2 shows every Tuesday through Saturday. There is the early show (this is the one we chose) at 5:15 pm and then the later show is at 8 pm. The shows last 2 hours but you are asked to arrive 30 minutes early to be seated. You will have your photo taken after you receive your complimentary lei greeting. The photo does cost extra but I think it is worth it with the whole family wearing their lei's! Reservations can be made 180 days ahead and they are highly recommended. There are 3 categories of seating/prices. Category 1 seats (closest to the stage on the lower level) are the most expensive at $69 per adult and $35 per child. Children under 3 are free. Category 2 seats are $62 per adult and $30 per child. Category 3 (this is what we chose) are $58 per adult and $29 per child.
Food Review: The appetizers were served immediately after we were seated. The warm pineapple-coconute bread was amazing. The Polynesian salad was wonderful. The dressing was a sweet orange flavor. Even my husband enjoyed the salad and usually he will not eat salad. The main course arrived a few minutes after the appetizers. The main course consisted of roasted chicken that was extremely moist and marinated with a delicious Polynesian marinade. The vegetable medley was great and the rice was the best Polynesian rice I have had. There is a children's menu available that consisted of hot dogs, macaroni and cheese or peanut butter and jelly. The dessert was my favorite, a plate of 3 mini milk chocolate mousse volcano's. They were just the perfect size.
Show Review: The Spirit of Aloha Luau was the best part, my children were amazed by the hula dancers. The show started off with the hula girls dancing and inviting anyone who was celebrating a birthday to come up to the stage area. The dancers taught the children and adults a hula dance. This was really cute and the children enjoyed this. *Have your camera's ready because it is a quick dance* Following this the hula dancers performed and then the fire dancers arrived. My children still talk about this and how fun it was to watch. Overall, I would say this show was the best dinner we had all week.
