Disney Destroys Fan-Favorite Show, Rubble Left Everywhere
The Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida is home to hundreds of amazing experiences. From Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom as well as two incredible water parks, guests can expect to create unforgettable memories while visiting “The Most Magical Place on Earth”.
However, many experiences can also be found outside the parks.

While Disney World may be famous for its amazing parks, it also has a ton of jaw-dropping hotels and resorts. One of the most beloved resorts has to be Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, one of the oldest on the entire property. Guests love the Polynesian-themed hotel and amenities, as well as the delicious restaurants and dining options it offers.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has what is arguably one of the best restaurants in all of Disney World, with Ohana being a fan favorite. Another great option for guests looking for dinner and a show was the Spirit of Aloha experience. However, it has been announced that it will be closing permanently as the entire complex continues to undergo renovations and construction.
Disney World describes the show as follows:
Hula dancing, fire dancing and more
Celebrate the spirit of aloha with spellbinding dancers, drummers and a breathtaking fire knife performer.
Aunty Wini is hosting a fun luau to say goodbye to one of the local girls heading to the “mainland” for college – and you’re invited!
In the outdoor theater at Luau Cove, revel in the exciting traditions of Polynesia, including dances from Tahiti, Samoa, Tonga, New Zealand and Hawaii.
An all-you-can-eat tropical feast
Sit down to plates of authentic Aloha pulled pork, Polynesian ribs, roast chicken and seasonal vegetables. Savor fresh-cut fruit and a salad with ginger-lime vinaigrette, then finish your meal by indulging in pineapple guava cake and chocolate cake!
Kid favorites like Chicken Breast Nuggets with Tater Bites, Cheese Pizza and Grilled Chicken or Fish of the Day with Rice and Green Beans are also available on request from the limited kids menu.
In addition to soft drinks, lemonade, coffee, and other non-alcoholic beverages, guests 21 and older can enjoy beer and wine with their meals. For an extra, treat yourself to a fruity cocktail, like the Pau Hana Punch served in a hand-carved coconut souvenir.

In September 2020, The Walt Disney Company laid off thousands of Cast Members, including iconic Spirit of Aloha performers at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. It was the first sign that things might not be going so well for the dinner show.
Celebrate the spirit of the South Pacific in this oasis of tropical palms, lush vegetation and more. From moonlit nights immersed in outdoor island ambience to the exotic flavors of our world-class restaurants, experience the signature tropical atmosphere that has made Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort a favorite Disney destination since 1971.
Choose from a wide range of accommodations, from rooms and suites – some offering concierge service – to home-like options in the villa section of the resort. All room types share the same resort amenities, including pools, restaurants, and recreation.
