We should be careful when describing the luau at the Polynesian Cultural Center because it is somewhat different than those offered elsewhere. Most luaus are "stand alone" luaus as "that is the point of the whole occasion." You come to a luau for three hours or so, enjoy it, and leave. The luau at the Polynesian Cultural Center is actually incorporated into the whole experience that is offered you at the Polynesian Cultural Center. The Polynesian Cultural Center opens about 12:30 in the afternoon, and you are free to roam the various exhibits set up for each of the South Pacific island nations during the course of the afternoon. When it comes to be early evening time, everyone is of course hungry and you have a choice of two venues from which to pick for your dinner. One is called the Ambassador Dinner and includes a prime rib and seafood dinner. The other dinner offered is the Alii Luau Dinner. In addition to experiencing the luau foods, you will also be entertained by a Hawaiian show. Keep in mind that this is just the first show of the evening because coming up later will be the Polynesian review called "Ha: Breath of Life" - The Story of the Polynesian Soul. All the aforementioned is said so that you understand the nuances regarding the difference between the luau/shows offered here as compared to luaus that are offered elsewhere. The Polynesian Cultural Center is one on the most outstanding, informative, and educational venues found not only on Oahu, but truly in the whole state of Hawaii.
