    Thanks so much for all your great advice! Is it possible to book the early Spirit of Aloha dinner and make it to the beach in time to see Wishes? Is Spirit a good idea for a 3y/o and 5y/o?


    You are going to love Disney's Spirt of Aloha Show at the Polynesian Resort. This show is filled with music and even a fire-knife dance. The food is also delish! They have ribs, chicken, pineapple salad and more. it is definitely something that your kids and you will both enjoy.

    There are two show times: 5:15 and 8:00. The show lasts about two hours, so if you want to see a 10:00 p.m. viewing of Wishes then you may want to sneak out a bit early and head for the beach.

    Sometimes Wishes is a 9:00 p.m., so you would definitely miss it if you did the 8:00 Spirit of Aloha. You could always do the 5:15 Spirit of Aloha show, then enjoy walking around the Polynesian Resort and the pool area until Wishes begins. That is what I would recommend so that you can fully enjoy both experiences and not feel rushed.

    I hope you have a magical trip!
