Celebrating National Lū‘au month with Disney’s Aulani Resort

Before we finish out May, Disney wants to share one last hurrah for this National Lū‘au Month! Just remember, at Disney’s Aulani Resort, it’s always luau time. Aulani’s KA WA‘A Lū‘au is special because it continues Aulani’s celebration of Hawai‘i’s storytelling by sharing, through beautiful music and dance, how Hawai‘i’s ancestors settled on O‘ahu’s ‘Ewa Plains – the very place where Aulani Resort is located. Check out the exciting activites and videos below as shared by DisneyParksBlog:


While you may not be able to travel to Aulani Resort right now, we wouldn’t want you to miss out on celebrating national lū‘au month. That’s why we’ve come up with a few recommendations to help you create your very own KA WA‘A Lū‘au at home.

First, you need to the right outfit. Because, let’s face it, we all need a reason to dress up right now. For women, I suggest an outfit with bright colors that will keep you cool in the early evening sun, and will look great flowing in the island breeze. A beautiful pua or flower in your hair is the perfect accessory. For men, your nicest pair of shorts, a bright aloha shirt, and your favorite sunglasses will keep you looking cool – both literally and figuratively.

Next comes my favorite part – the food! Limu Poke is a Hawai‘i staple and the fresh taste will instantly transport you to Aulani Resort. The KA WA‘A Lū‘au limu poke recipe is easy to recreate at home by following these simple steps.

Now, we’re ready for some activities! KA WA‘A Lū‘au features a range of fun, interactive activities designed to immerse the whole ‘ohana in Hawai‘i’s culture. For your at-home lū‘au, we suggest creating your own paper lei, reminiscent of the fresh flower lei making activity favored among many of our guests.

Before we start the show, we like to engage our guests in a special hula that was created specifically for Aulani – the Aulani Hula! It’s easy to learn, and in this video, Aunty’s Beach House Cast Member Kanoa and his family walk you through the steps.

Now it’s time to sit back and enjoy the entertainment! Disney Imagineer Jeanette Lomboy gave a great description and preview of the wonderful entertainment when we first launched KA WAA Luau in 2016. Take a look!
