    Aloha! Family trip to Aulani coming this summer and wondered if we could use Disney gift cards to pay for the luau, even though booking are managed by an outside company. Thank you!

    Aloha Sunny!

    Welcome back to planDisney! Warm ocean breezes, lush tropical gardens, and gorgeous sunsets await you at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawai'i. End your perfect day in Hawaii with KA WA’A Lu’au where you’ll be treated to a feast of fresh local fish and produce, as you enjoy a breathtaking performance featuring traditional Hawaiian music and dance!

    You are correct that KA WA’A Lu’au is booked by a third-party company, and so I am sorry to report that you cannot use a Disney Gift Card to book the Lu’au. If you will be staying at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, you can inquire about changing the charge for the show to a room charge. While there are no guarantees, some Guests have had success doing this. You can then use a Disney Gift Card to pay off your room charges by visiting the front desk with the Disney Gift Card. Just be sure to pay off those room charges every few nights as room charges will post to your card every so often. If you wait until the morning of check-out it may be too late to use the Disney Gift Card.

    If you are looking for another great use of a Disney Gift Card, my favorite spot at the resort is The ‘Olelo Room. With nightly live entertainment and a wonderful menu of beverages, small plates, and amazingly fresh sushi, this little gem quickly became our evening tradition. I’m already planning a return trip for 2023, and The ‘Olelo Room will be at the top of my must-do list.

    Mahalo, (thank you) for sending in your question, Sunny! Please let us know what additional questions you have before your trip!
