On December 13th, Disney’s Polynesian Resort held it’s last Torch Lighting Ceremony at the main entrance to the Great Ceremonial House.
Polynesian Resort fans may recognize the master of ceremonies at the torch lighting as Kaleo, the guitar player from the Tambu Lounge.
Kaleo is leaving the Polynesian after over eighteen years of entertaining many guests, myself included! We wish him the best in whatever he does next and fans can keep up to date at his website bighawaiianguy.com.
To see some of my vintage Polynesian Resort photos, please click HERE and HERE. For those who are huge Polynesian Resort fans (as I am!), I also have for sale a Polynesian Resort Screensaver CD and a Polynesian Resort Experiences DVD. I also recommend the Tikiman Pages as the best online resource for Polynesian resort history.
This is video of the final Polynesian Resort Torch Lighting Ceremony recorded 12/13/08!
Thank you Kaleo and Mahalo!
