I would have liked more information about the time of the show. There is a lot of empty time after the required check in I could have used to take the train ride, but nobody I asked was able to explain that to me. The vendors had some great art pieces, but that was a lot of time for unexpected shopping time.

The show was well done and loved the open bar. The only disappointment was the food! Other than the pork other dishes were typical and nothing unique to Hawaiian flairs. When I saw chow mein, white rice, stir fried veggies I thought “am I in a Chinese restaurant?” I was looking for more Hawaiian dishes. Also the water left on the table should be replaced when it was all gone not half full. I came from CA and have to deal with drought so seeing the waiter took away half fulled decanter it was a waste of water.

Dances and story-telling were beautiful & engaging. The show picks up after the dinner. The fire act was mind blowing. Music throughout the show was lovely & you can enjoy Mai Tai’s! Few cons: - Food was just okay. - Seating was awkward & felt like a banquet hall. 8 people on a table. So you’d be sharing the table with others. Would’ve personally preferred smaller table. - The train ride part was bit unclear. Would’ve loved to add it to our package but couldn’t find an option to.
