What is it?

Auntie Wini is hosting a fun-filled luau to say goodbye to one of the local girls who’s headed to the “mainland” for college, and it seems now you’re invited! At the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, you’ll enjoy a luau with Polynesian dancing, including dances from Tahiti, Samoa, Tonga, New Zealand and Hawaii, plus drummers and a fire-knife performer. You’ll also feast on a traditional Polynesia dinner, all-you-care-to-enjoy style.

Where is it?

Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show takes place in the open-air theater at Luau Cove, which is a non-smoking outdoor environment. Some Category 2 and 3 seats require a short walk up stairs.

  • authentic Aloha pulled pork
  • Polynesian ribs
  • roasted chicken
