Best Places to See a Luau in Orlando & Central Florida

    By Jill Martin

    Looking for some "hip" entertainment? Gather your ohana (that's "family" in Hawaiian) and get to one of these places to watch a luau in Orlando and Central Florida.

    Disney’s Polynesian Resort

    No dinner bell, but a blowing of conch shells tells you the doors have opened at this Polynesian-inspired Florida restaurant named Ohana. Kids can "sweep coconuts" in a race, listen to storytellers and hula hoop the night away. Dinner is family style with specialties cooked over an 18-foot oak fire pit.

    Hawaiian Inn, Daytona Beach Shores

    The chef at the My Ohana luau is from Samoa and he prepares the all-you-can-eat buffet (with Hawaiian Kalua Pulled Pork) daily. This isn’t your typical luau show, but it’s a fun evening, and the black lights and colorful neon are a kid-favorite. Learn to dance and be a part of the show.

    Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando Wantilan Luau

    This weekly Saturday night show features an all-you-can-eat buffet of Polynesian delights like fresh Pacific Wahoo, pit-roasted pig and even kid-friendly favorites. The music of this luau in Orlando is enchanting and you can burn off your meal learning the hula.

    SeaWorld’s Makahiki Luau

    Be greeted with a flower lei, then be seated with fellow guests to watch Polynesia come to life. Park admission is NOT required for this after-hours event that includes a complete dinner delivered to your table whiile you watch the show. You’ll even feel the heat from the fire dances! Kids' meals and vegetarian meals are also available.
