When Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa reopened in November following its temporary pandemic-related closure, a number of Guest experiences were unavailable.
One of the events that was suspended was the Guest-favorite luau. Now, Disney has confirmed that the popular event will be returning to Disney’s Hawaii Resort in just a few weeks on March 27, 2021!
The official Disney Parks Blog announcement reads:
As the sun dips into the ocean to end the day, a conch shell is blown in the distance and you can hear the Hawaiian oli chant begin. This is the tradition of welcoming our guests to KA WA‘A, a Lu‘au at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa … which guests will soon be able to experience once again! I’m thrilled to announce that reservations are now available for KA WA‘A Lu‘au which will reopen on March 27.
Just like we have done with other resort experiences, we have made some adjustments to our lu‘au with the health and safety of our cast and guests in mind. Please see the resort’s website for additional safety measures.
Set under the stars on the beautiful Hālāwai Lawn, KA WA‘A Lu‘au immerses guests in the live music, traditional dance and ancient stories of Hawai‘i through Disney’s signature entertainment. Prior to the show, guests are encouraged to participate in family activities that are now enjoyed from the comfort of their own table. These activities include flower arranging and poi pounding, a process in which Taro root is ground to create poi – a food that is a staple of the traditional Hawaiian diet.
At this time, Aulani, Disney’s only property in Hawaii, in enforcing many of the same health and safety protocols that are currently in place at Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort’s Downtown Disney District, and other open Disney properties around the world. This includes mandatory face masks for Guests age 2 and up, social distancing practices, and limited experiences, in some cases.
Bear in mind that face masks are not required for Aulani Guests when they are actively swimming.
Are you excited that the luau is returning to Aulani? We can’t wait! Click here to book your trip.
