Maui Day No. Five 10/23/15

We wanted to try and eat later so we could do the breakfast buffet and have it count as breakfast and lunch. ;)  So we decided to take a walk to the Shops at Wailea, but oh my gosh, it’s faaaaaaar!  The poor kids were not happy, and they were starving when we got back to the hotel.  We still stopped for a little horsey ride on the way to brunch...

 Gary and I finally got the breakfast buffet, which is really good but a ton of food.  They have everything- eggs, egg whites, omelet station, eggs benedict, quiche, French toast, pancakes, waffles, pastries, bagels, toast, two types of sausage, bacon, hash browns, rice, yogurt, cereal, granola, fresh fruit, juice, smoked salmon, cheese, meat slices, rolls…seriously, everything you could want!  We were stuffed, and it worked because we skipped lunch.
After breakfast we went to the pool with grandma and grandpa, and then after nap, we stopped in Lahaina before heading to the Luau at the Hyatt in Kaanapali. 
Supposedly, the best luau on the island is the Old Lahaina Luau, which I was going to book, but they charge for $75 per child for kids over 2!!!  I’m sorry, but I could not stomach paying $150 for the 3 bites of food my kids would eat.  My mom found good reviews for the Hyatt Luau, and kids are free so we figured why not.  It was AMAZING!!!  I highly recommend it if you have little kids.  As you walk in, they put a shell necklace on you and hand you a mai tai or fruit punch. There is an open bar…all the alcohol you could drink!!!!!  Plus anything non-alcoholic the kids wanted.  The food, especially the pork, was good.  The show was great, and the kids absolutely LOVED it.  We had great seats (we thought they were the best in the house, and we didn’t even pay extra for VIP seating!).  I’ve never been to a luau and never had any interest in going to one, but I think we will do this every time we come to Hawaii with the kids- they had so much fun, and it was so much fun to watch them.  And then there’s the whole open bar aspect… ;)

We were shocked when the kids went up on stage *by themselves* in front of tons of people to learn the hula dance!!
The drive between Wailea and Lahaina is looooooong so the kids fell asleep on the way back from the luau.
