FAQ - Park Rules
Hours of Operation
Alcohol, Smoking & Drug use
Alcohol is not served or allowed to be consumed anywhere on the premises.
We have provided numerous smoking areas throughout the Polynesian Cultural Center. Anything that produces smoke or vapor is not permitted outside of the designated areas. These designated smoking areas are clearly identified on the park map you will receive upon your arrival.
The use of illegal drugs is strictly prohibited. Violations will result in immediate removal from the premises and notification to the local law enforcement agency.
Dress Code & Language
Oahu can experience many changes in the weather, rainy one moment, tropical heat the next. We recommend you dress comfortably and wear very comfortable shoes. Remember that the sun can be harsh, so you may want to grab a hat or umbrella even on the sunniest of days. And don’t forget water! Don’t worry if you forget any of these items, you can pick them up at our Hukilau Marketplace.
Because the Polynesian Cultural Center is a family oriented attraction, we ask our guests to dress appropriately. Shoes and shirts are required at all times. Bathing suits are not allowed. Clothing, tattoos and all forms of wear-able art with offensive designs are strictly prohibited.
To ensure an enjoyable experience for all our guests, please refrain from using profanity and engaging in unsafe or disruptive behavior. We reserve the right to remove any person(s) who engages in disorderly, disruptive or otherwise offensive activities. We kindly request that you treat all guests and employees with aloha and respect.
Outside food is not allowed in the Polynesian Cultural Center. However, food and other items that are for medical purposes are permitted with prior notification.
Camera & Video Use
Guests are welcome to take as many personal pictures or video recordings at the Polynesian Cultural Center as they wish, EXCEPT during the Ha’: Breath of Life show.
Photography or video recording of any kind is strictly prohibited during the “”Ha: Breath of Life”” show. However, souvenir booklets and DVDs of the Ha:Breath of Life show are available for purchase throughout the Center.
Most PCC performers are also usually available to have their pictures taken with guests. Other pictures are available for purchase from Photo Polynesia, the exclusive licensed photography concession at the Center.
The Polynesian Cultural Center does not allow any commercial photography or filming on the grounds without prior approval of the Sales & Marketing Department. Photo resources for purposes of promoting the Polynesian Cultural Center are available upon request. For more information, please contact our marketing department at 808-293-3291 or click here to email.
Weapons & Firearms
For the safety of our staff and guests, no weapons or firearms of any kind are permitted on the premises.
The Polynesian Cultural Center has a no tipping policy. The majority of our guides and other employees at the Polynesian Cultural Center are students employed through the I-WORK program. I-WORK is a program that provides financial support for culturally diverse students while attending BYU-H University. Gratuities and tips would be counted as income to the students and would jeopardize their eligibility. Please note that individuals who are not employees of the Polynesian Cultural Center are exempt and can continue to receive tips if you so desire.
