You're all gonna have a great time! To get you started, the kids will enjoy seeing the Molokai bar, and they serve non-alcoholic drinks for them as well. Take 'em out to the gardens too and take pics there.

Ft. Lauderdale itself is full of stuff to do and see, and you can find that all online. If you go south of Ft. Lauderdale you can have lunch at Le Tub, and if you get seated on the water, you may see some friendly iguanas crawl along the rail and look for lettuce handouts at your table. The kids would love that!

Read others comments in this thread, and do some other searches here on TC. And ask more specific questions. You should find plenty to see and do. The place really is great fun, has good food and drinks, and a top-notch show.

Have fun!

Hello,

I plan on visiting the Mai Kai sometime later this year (possibly mid-September) for my big 3-0.

Any recommendations or tips? I'd like to catch the show and I'll have my 6yo and 2yo children in two.

Thanks



Come the weekend of the 17th for my
Book Release Event. Special Lost Cocktail offerings with the Atomic Grog's Jim Hayward and Pablus of the Crazed Mugs playing in the Molokai. Your first chance to the get my book, and get it signed. There are 50+ in the party so far, and more signed up for the presentation at 2PM that Saturday.

No better time to explore the Mai-Kai and be there amongst fans and enjoy the place properly and get added experiences.

That's actually my birthday and the day I was looking at going! Also cool because I've had your book on my Amazon wishlist since April

Oh the wondrous age we live in! You can now wander most of the Mai-Kai interior and gardens via Google maps! Can't get behind Samoa it seems though. But it is nice. This was done when the 1956 fernwood tikis were by the drive. You can see them if you turn around at the entrance. And the 1956 carving is in the gardens that was in the Surfboard Bar.

I checked out the walkthrough yesterday. It's very cool! But I did check to see if the new tall tiki was in the gardens so I could figure out when it was shot. I do have a question about the booths in the middle of Tahiti. Are those portable? Wasn't that where Tikiyaki was playing during the Hukilau? They look awful big to just be moved about.

It's a little too brightly lit for my taste, but then you get to see all the details better. It's good to see that the original Cannibal Carvings are still in situ in their little alcove:



And what fun to have time to explore the exotic splendor of the Bangkok Room!:
