The event — sponsored by Dole Packaged Foods, features over a dozen special menu items found at various Downtown Disney restaurants. These tastes of the islands will be accompanied by regular weekly appearances of the Polynesian performers of Tupua. Beginning July 1st, Tupua will help set the scene on the Downtown Disney LIVE! Stage with song, dance, and color. Moving forward, Tupua will appear on Friday evenings through the run of the event.

We mentioned a “taste of the islands,” too, though, didn’t we? Find a Hawaiian BBQ Sandwich at Earl of Sandwich. Or stop by ESPN Zone for Hawaiian Pork Sliders, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, or a Summer Mojito.
