4 course meal dinner was amazing just a little rushed. Open bar during the show but I was mesmerized by the show plus they encourage us to stay in our seat so ended up having just one drink. The VIP Package also says we'll get pictures with the dancers at the end but that didnt not happen exclusively for us. They posed in the center of the stage. I was more towards one side and they linger for 3-5 minutes. I was able to take a picture with one of them but not with the ones I wanted. They were gone in a heartbeat.

Well organized package. Recommended for people who prefer dinner service to a buffet. In the restaurant, champagne upon arrival, unlimited chilled water, the menu and the flower lei are all included. The service there is excellent. The "open bar" is only valid for the time at the show location (for about 30 minutes). The bar is well organized, no waiting time. You have enough time before the show starts. You can see the great show from the front row on reserved seats. Overall, I would rate the whole package as highly recommended.

Brought our kiddos to their first luau and this didn't disappoint. Great show and staff. We ate at Gaylord's beforehand and then were taken over to the show. The food at Gaylord's was amazing. Kids loved the ribs. After the show a couple of the performers even let us get a couple pics for our kids. Would recommend for sure.
