  • Dinner Shows

    We are trying to determine if we should do a dinner show. Have 2 boys 5 & 7 and we are getting the meal plan and have the table meals we can use. Our trip is in June.



    What is Mickey's Backyard BBQ like? With a June trip, I am worried about being to hot in the pavilion. I think the kids might like it but I have not seen to many good reviews of it. What types of food do they have for kids? We have one picky eater and the food they list for the buffet he will not eat so am wondering if we can get something else for him. How long is the show and is it possible to be done with it and make it out to the beach to watch the Electric Water Pageant?



    Thanks for the help.

    There is a kids menu but I have not added it to my pages. The kids menu is For Kids (3-9)
    Macaroni and Cheese
    Chicken Nuggets
    Peanut Butter and Jelly
    Hot Dogs


    Seating is not assigned and you can see the map on my page but I do not know what you get assigned with the dinning plan. I have someone I can ask that does the assignments at the Polynesian but it will take me a day or so to get a reply.

    You should have plenty of time to see the EWP after the early dinner show and I do suggest doing the early show.

    Here is a link to the menu and some info.

      we really enjoyed spirit of aloha and i'm sure our daughter will like it when she gets older but i'm not so sure it's something a boy would like.

      we did have assigned seating - our hostess was told which one and showed us to it.

      we were also on the dp but everyone we saw was shown to their seat.

      dp's don't get up front and centre - we are do the side on the main floor and up on the upper floor.

      Mickey's BBQ - we've read a lot of other reviews on it and it's not getting very good ones. apparently it looks like they only give you 30 minutes to eat. i find that very odd considering Spirit - you eat through the show. we had really hoped to go on our next visit but we are swayed by all the negative reviews.

      that's all i've got for ya.

      can't wait to see what you choose then hear your review.

        We loved the Spirt of Aloha luau. The both times we had the dining plan. First time we sat to the far left of the stage in the front. Second time we sat up on there lil balcony in the front ( seeing in the front was better). The kids loved the menu, the fact that they didn't have to eat grown up food was cool to them and they got there own lil box of food. They did end up eating the ribs from the grown ups food, but they loved sampling. My 5 year old fell asleep during the middle of the show, but woke up for the fire dancer at the end. My 9 year old loved all of it. Hope that helps a lil...

          It does, thanks. Judging from the picture you were there for a Star Wars weekend. How was that. Did you boys enjoy it. Did they get to do the Jeti training?

                  My son loved the Spirt of Aloha show and he was only 2 1/3 at the time. He was dancing at the table while he watched the show. You can also find the menu for it here. Kids don't have to eat off the kid menu.

                    Too bad you are not going in late July / Early August. We got some group rates for the Polynesian that are over $100 off the rack rate for every view including concierge.



                    As far as transportation I did some research for the website and timed trips to parks. Obviously getting to the MK is easy and fast. Getting to Epcot was as fast as walking from our room at the Yacht Club and faster than when we stayed at the Swan or Dolphin. Taking the bus to MGM and AK were about the same amount of time and was about 35-40 minutes but very easy to do. Remember you have the Transportaion and Ticket Center walking distance from your rooms at the Polynesian so getting to different transportation options does not get any easier. I have stayed at a few of the resorts and I have not found a resort that gets to all the parks as easy as the Polyensian.

                      Last time I saw this show it was simply the "Polynesian Luau", and that was in July, 1981. As I recall, my family and I found it rather amusing (of course, it's not the same show today as it was almost 26 years ago), being that we were from Hawaii (I was born and raised in Honolulu). For some reason I remember sitting on the floor, but that can't be right, but I don't remember chairs and regular tables like they have today. I think my mind is playing tricks on me.

                        we went with Kwgrlup and her kids. She made them jedi robes. She let my kids borrow them. We made signs for the boys so that they could hopefully get picked. They worked, the master Jedi walked by and smiled at them when he first saw them. My boys were the first two picked ...and Kwgrlups boys were right after that. It wasn't a bad experience. We had been another time and my older son wasnt' picked. So we really tried hard to make sure he got chosen this time. It was a blast and they really took it seriously.

                          Wow born and raised. My Dad was in the military and we spent 6 years in the 70's and 80's on Hickam right near the water tower. Unfortunately, have not been back but found memories. The summer trip every year was to another island. How can that ever be beat.

                            Just a follow-up on my own post is that allearsnet.com does have listed on their site under the restaurants available for the dinning plan that dinning plan is only eligible for category 2 & 3 for both the Spirit of Aloha and Hoop-Dee-Doo. That certainly was not the case two years ago when we use the dinning plan for the Hoop-Dee-Doo and had a table right on the stage.

                              That is because the seating categories went into effect this January. Before it was sort of first come, first serve with the seating.
