I attended the KA WA'A Luau at Aulani on March 14th 2020. We were so happy to get a last minute VIP seat as a party of 2. We debated if VIP was worth the extra money and concluded that for us it absolutely was worth it. I did a short video with some of the highlights:
The evening started in the VIP line where we were greeted by the cast members with a wristband and lei. Next we were led to our table with a stop on the way for a picture and our first free drink. Since we were the first ones to arrive at our table, we got to pick our seats at the table and decided closest to the stage was for us. There was seating for 10 at the table and we were with 2 families of 4. The VIP section is the first two rows of tables and we were in the second row. The VIP line was non-existent within 15 minutes of opening.
After the VIP section was seated, the other guests were allowed to enter and the pre show entertainment began. There was a band playing on the stage and several activities for the children set up in the back. There were several activities where you got to take something with you. During this time we got our 2nd free alcoholic drink each. When it was time to eat, everyone was asked to come to their tables and the tables were released one at a time to head to the buffet with the VIP tables getting to go first. Children were allowed to still play and run and everyone seemed to follow the rules. I did not take pictures of the food but it was delicious and beautiful.
