Before visiting the Polynesian Cultural Center, I had high expectations for what the experience would encompass. I was excited to learn more about Polynesia! Sadly, the overall vibe was more game-show than educational, but I will give the student performers points for friendliness and enthusiasm. The only real stand out was the Samoan performance. I was entertained - the guy cracked a coconut with a rock, made fire without flint, and then put it out with his foot. Don't mess with Samoans! Additionally, the noise levels, presentation styles, and activities were not well suited for young children. What I didn't realize until spending time at the PCC,  is that it's basically a Mormon operated version of The Pol...

Purchased the ambassador package for my family and friends.  The tour guide was amazing with our young kids, she even took our daughter several times so we could dance/play games. Without a tour guide as a first time visitor I think it would have been tough to see everything, fortunately we were escorted around and got the most out of our day. You definitely need to get there as close to the opening time as possible, or plan on a second visit (free within the two weeks after your first visit if you keep your ticket). The food at the luau was excellent (especially the smoothies in the pineapple cones, costs extra, but still only half as much as in Honolulu)  and Ha - Breath of Life was spectacular, on par wit...

We only went for the "Ha - Breath of Life" Night Show. We wanted to take part in the day activities and the dinner/buffet also but since the prices were so damn expensive, we had to pick one and we figured the night show would be the most impressive. This place really is $$$$. The night show is from 7:30 - 9 PM and was $50 per person. When we got there around 7:15 we didn't have to pay for parking. The show was very well done, it's basically the Lion King story but with Polynesians (baby boy born in the beginning, father dies, they fight the enemy, he finds love, new baby born, you get the idea). There is a fire show in the 2nd half which was the best part. Great dancing. NO PHOTOS ALLOWED though booooooooo....
