We started going to Paradise Cove with visitors a few years back (probably around 2002). We've always used the coupon in the Entertainment book to get 25% off, and we get the Royal Ali'i package. I would recommend getting this package, and getting seats in the royal box. The box is elevated, allowing an unobstructed view of the show, and the food is brought to you, rather than you having to go through the buffet line. This allows you to visit with friends, and not miss any of the show. However, the downside of things has been the drinks. When we first starting going, the bar offered all sorts of tropical drinks to choose from. Starting in 2005, they severely reduced the types of drinks offered, and got rid of my favorite, the Banana Mac. We found the limited number of drinks not among our favorite, and have decided that next time we have visitors, we'll try Germaine's luau.
