Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Show Whisks Guests Away to a Tropical Island

Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Show Whisks Guests Away to a Tropical Island

Luau Cove is a beautiful outdoor theater tucked behind the Polynesian Resort and is host to the Spirit of Aloha Show & Dinner. As soon as guests walk into the Polynesian Resort they feel like they’ve been transported to a tropical oasis and that is only the beginning of an amazing evening.

Guests are greeted with a flower lei as they check in for dinner and a PhotoPass photographer is available for pictures.

Tables are arranged by three category seating options and families may be combined with others at long tables. Guests may use two table service credits for both category two & three reservations.

Advanced reservations are recommended and can be made online or by calling.


A live band is playing music as guests enjoy appetizers of fresh fruit, tropical salad, cold noodle salad, and delicious pineapple-coconut bread.

Main Course and Performance

As an unlimited main course of roasted chicken, Aloha pulled pork, barbecued ribs, rice and veggies arrive, the beautiful show also begins.

Talented entertainers take you to the Polynesian Islands of Hawaii, Tahiti, Samoa, Tonga and New Zealand with authentic dances.

There are a few parts of the show that guests are brought on stage to interact with the dancers, so make sure you tell your server if you are celebrating something special.


The evening ends with a mouthwatering pineapple-coconut cake dessert and a breathtaking performance by the fire knife dancer.

Don’t leave too soon…

But wait, don’t leave too quickly! Stay at the Polynesian Resort after the Spirit of Aloha show to watch the fireworks at Magic Kingdom.

Guests can also see the Electrical Water Pageant as it travels the Seven Seas Lagoon. I love to grab a dole whip from Pineapple Lanai, sit on a swing and enjoy the quiet calm beach while we wait for the fireworks.

You can easily travel to the Polynesian Resort via monorail or boat from Magic Kingdom. The resort is also a quick walk from the Transportation and Ticket Center.

I liked the dinner and show. My nephew and niece enjoyed being part of the show. It was a good one time experience, especially since we used the dining plan that trip.

Hard pass. They over charged me for an average experience once, they won’t do so again.
