  1. I know, right? If you go to the Hukilau, you could knock it out,and have a great time at the event, too. I am planning to go to that in 2017. 🙂


  2. This was a fun read. I always like to hear people’s thoughts after their first Mai-Kai visit because it is definitely the “tiki mothership” (as Martin Cate likes to refer to it).

    Your photos of the floor show are some of the clearest I’ve seen of the show’s live action. Most come out blurry. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment! We were lucky to have been seated nearly front and center. Truly it was an experience like no other, and I can’t wait to go back. Luckily I have relatives that are close by! 😉


  3. We’ve been twice (about a decade apart), and both are quite memorable. We did the dinner/show combo both times and couldn’t have been happier.

    This past time I started with the Rum Barrell and followed it up with a Mai-Tai. My wife also had a Mai-Tai and then a Pina Colada. All the drinks were fantastic…about the best we’ve ever had anywhere.

    I can’t remember the exact meal I got, but I remember thinking it was only about average, unfortunately. It wasn’t bad, by any means, but I was a little disappointed since EVERYTHING else is simply amazing. From the decor to the gardens, the amazing show and then the gift shop…let’s just say it’s a good thing I don’t live in Fort Lauderdale. I don’t think I could afford it!

    We took home a menu to add to my collection and two mugs (Rum Barrell and Shrunken Head) but could have packed a rental truck full of great stuff if we had the money and the space.

    We can’t wait to get back again.
