In September 2020, The Walt Disney Company laid off thousands of Cast Members, including iconic Spirit of Aloha performers at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.

Now, sadly, it looks like these performers will never return to the dinner show as Disney has confirmed that Spirit of Aloha will be shutting down for good.

Disney’s Spirit of Aloha was a dinner show that offered guests a culturally-inspired dining experience with music, a great story, delicious food, and outdoor seating. Disney World described the show as follows:

Hula dancing, fire dancing and more

Celebrate the spirit of aloha with spellbinding dancers, drummers and a breathtaking fire knife performer.

Aunty Wini is hosting a fun luau to say goodbye to one of the local girls heading to the “mainland” for college – and you’re invited!

In the outdoor theater at Luau Cove, revel in the exciting traditions of Polynesia, including dances from Tahiti, Samoa, Tonga, New Zealand and Hawaii.

An all-you-can-eat tropical feast

Sit down to plates of authentic Aloha pulled pork, Polynesian ribs, roast chicken and seasonal vegetables. Savor fresh-cut fruit and a salad with ginger-lime vinaigrette, then finish your meal by indulging in pineapple guava cake and chocolate cake!

Kid favorites like Chicken Breast Nuggets with Tater Bites, Cheese Pizza and Grilled Chicken or Fish of the Day with Rice and Green Beans are also available on request from the limited kids menu.

In addition to soft drinks, lemonade, coffee, and other non-alcoholic beverages, guests 21 and older can enjoy beer and wine with their meals. For an extra, treat yourself to a fruity cocktail, like the Pau Hana Punch served in a hand-carved coconut souvenir.
