Mai tais, wine, and beer are included for guests 21 and older, and the luau also includes a "kid-friendly" buffet with pizza, chicken fingers, mac and cheese, and peanut butter and jelly.

Wow! That's pretty awesome! I've not heard anything about Universal's luau, but since Disney and Seaworld have ended theirs, this makes them the only one in town.

enjoyed it some years back before Covid19 - might book it again late August! It was a blast when I attended before Covid!
