May is National Lū‘au Month and there’s no better place to celebrate than Disney’s Aulani Resort in Hawaii. 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.

Since we can’t visit Aulani right now, we have some recommendations to help you create your very own KA WA‘A Lū‘au at home.

The first step is choosing your best luau outfit! For the ladies, a bright floral dress will keep you cool in the early evening sun and will look great flowing in the island breeze. A beautiful flower in your hair is the perfect accessory. For the guys, your nicest pair of shorts and a bright Hawaiian shirt is the perfect look for a luau.

The next step is food! You can’t have a luau without food. Limu Poke is a Hawai‘i staple and the fresh taste will instantly transport you to Aulani Resort. You can make the KA WA‘A Lū‘au limu poke recipe at home with this recipe.

KA WA‘A Lū‘au features a range of fun, interactive activities designed to immerse the whole family in Hawai‘i’s culture. One of the guest-favorite activities is the fresh flower lei making. For your at-home luau, you can make your own paper lei!

Before the show at KA WA‘A Lū‘au, guests learn a special hula – the Aulani Hula. It’s easy to learn and the video below walks you through all the steps!

Once you’ve learned the hula, it’s time to enjoy wonderful entertainment of the KA WA‘A Lū‘au!
