Apparently not only can you view items from this exhibit; soon, you may be able to own some of them:

I will have to agree. Thanks to Bryan I was spared this oddventure. I guess I owe him one. :roll:

I was saddened to learn that the ship sank and Bryan died. Well, that the ship sank, at least.

We've been wanting to do SeaWorld Orlando's Makahiki Luau for a couple of years. And now we have.

The price? $46 per adult. We don't have children. Good luck with that.

But, hey, there's free alcohol.

It's sort of a Polynesian blend, rather than being specifically Hawaiian.
09IMG_0720.JPG
I'm just happy to be leied.

Oh, come on--like you *wouldn't* have made a "leied" joke.
14IMG_3063.JPG
Salads are already on the table.
17IMG_0727.JPG
I always expect dinner shows to be more...cohesive. That is to say, I want there to be a connection between the food and the show. But there never is.
19IMG_0784.JPG
Like, the performers should kill a pig on stage and then bring it to your table. Something like that. Instead, it's always just, you eat standard food and then watch a show.
20IMG_0745.JPG
While I'm complaining...how about some--oh, I don't know--pineapple, maybe?
32IMG_0813.JPG
The show was cool, though. And, if anything, almost too long.
33IMGP6128.JPG
Again, it was definitely a mix of different cultures--which, from an educational perspective, was both good and bad.

Dessert!
36IMG_3068.JPG
And fire! All is forgiven!

They surrounded the stage with a mesh curtain before he started doing the really crazy stuff.
49IMG_0793.JPG
"Yeah, I'm awesome. I know it."
49Luau.jpg
This is how far behind I am on updates. (Actually, it's even worse than that.)

So, would I recommend it? I'm not sure. So there you go. I'm no help at all.

Ta-da!

I've been to one other luau (which was in Hawaii) this one was okay. In my opinion I wanted the food to be more themed but it was nice. Nothing special.

Where are the wisecracking birds, chanting tiki idols, and singing flowers?

I did the Sea World luau Christmas edition many years ago. I thought it was pretty good. I remember one big guy performer used to call gusts by what city they were from, like "Cleveland," "Tampa," "New York," etc.

Now let's do the luau at the Royal Pacific Resort and compare notes!

Something about this being indoors seems really off for a 'luau'.

Donkeys are my way of life!
