The program was very enjoyable. We would have had the dinner, but their vegan options were limited to a veggie burger. With so many good vegan restaurants available in Honolulu, we thought the price of such a simple fast food meal was too high.More

Maybe opt for just the show rather than the ones with a meal.. The theatre is small enough for a good view so I'm sure he will enjoy it
