Dang. I'm going to have to bow out of Thursday night. I just got offered a job that I can't turn down through the weekend. Everyone have a ball. Johntiki, I toast to your joyous time at the Mai Kai and in South Florida.

We're definitely in for the Molokai...

So what time is everyone planning on arriving? I know dinner is at 8, and happy hour is in there somewhere...

Johntiki, I am *SO* happy for you that you're going to get down to see it! Seeing this thread made me so happy for you- a well deserved much awaited pilgrimage!

If you're there in time, be sure to check out the happy hour from 5-7 in the Molokai Bar (the 2nd drink is on the house). Take your time and let the Magic of the Mai Kai enfold you. Relax in the bar, stroll the gardens before dark, then enjoy the show and return to the gardens by torchlight after dark- the Tikis are so different from sunshine to shadows! You'll want twilight to examine the details, torchlight to feel their wonder.

If you pace yourself just right through the drink menu, you'll end the evening with a magnificent Kona Coffee Grog complete with fire ritual-



or Bananas Bengali-



(you can see a bunch of pix from the fire rituals here-

Enjoy!

He's probably recovering from the magical Mai Kai!

We want some pictures, not some belly itchers!

Let me preface my comments with this statement; you can tell you’ve had a good night when you wake up 10 minutes before the 11 AM checkout time!

WOW! That was without a doubt one, if not THEE greatest night of my entire life! But before I comment on anything else I want to give some praise to the Florida ohana, you guys and gals are some of the most welcoming and friendly people I’ve ever met in my entire life – everyone was so warm and accommodating that after about 3 minutes I felt like I’d known them forever – we really felt at home and I can’t thank everyone enough!

The Mai Kai is awe-inspiring! Everywhere you look there is another treat for the eyes – the high ceiling above the dining room filled with floats and lamps, the Leetegs, the carvings, the waterfalls, the waitresses in the Molokai… you get the picture! I haven’t been to a lot of world class tiki bars but the Mai Kai is the best I’ve ever seen and I can probably safely say I’ll ever see! The drinks are top-notch – after all these years I finally got to drink out of a non-ceramic pineapple! Did I mention the waitresses in the Molokai Room? They are stunningly beautiful – I had heard and seen photographic proof of that fact but the folklore doesn’t do this matter justice – my friend Joe nearly flipped when we placed our happy hour drink orders! Pia and Kern were amazing – I felt like a VIP and was overwhelmed and honored by the treatment we received – getting to see their rum collection was like getting a private tour of the Sistine Chapel! The food was out of this world! The floorshow was jaw droppingly stunning – how do they move their hips like that?! My time on stage was awesome – in all honesty I would have probably been disappointed if I didn’t get to show my stuff to the Finn’s! The Kona Coffee Grog was an awesome nightcap, even though the night was just getting started! The gardens with its wealth of tikis and tropical foliage had me feeling like I was in the South Seas thousands of miles away from Florida!

When it came time for everyone to go their separate ways I actually got kind of choked up… I felt like I had made some great new friends and unfortunately my magical visit to the Mai Kai was over! The rest of the night was filled with more drinking at a few way less charming places but so as to not incriminate myself I’ll stop there! As for the rest of the weekend, it was fun but it couldn’t hold a candle to the majesty that was my Thursday night visit to the Mai Kai with my Florida Ohana! Thanks for everything!! I'm sincerely envious of those who have upcoming pilgrimages to this Heaven on Earth! I vow to return again someday!!

Who SAYS Disney's the happiest place on earth?! The Mai Kai is truly a one-of-a-kind place. Glad to see everyone had a great time!

Wow! I was already looking forward to my first pilgrimage to the Mai Kai (in 11 days!), but after your description of your experience, I'm counting the minutes! Did you order a Mystery Bowl? Do tell...

The Mai-Kai beats Disney with one pineapple tied behind the bar.... Last time I was at Disney, I couldn't find a decent drink in the whole place. Not even a glass of wine.......

Of course, I was at Disneyland.....

GatorRob, unfortunately I didn't order the Mystery Bowl. But because I didn't, it leaves me one more reason why I need to return!
