    Is the Hula lesson at Polynesian Resort still exist?

    Aloha, Jitnapa! Thank you for your question.

    No trip to Walt Disney World is complete without a visit to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Not only does it immerse you in a tropical oasis right there in the middle of Walt Disney World, but it introduces you to such amazing people as Auntie Kau'i.

    Who is Auntie Kau'i? She is a legend at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Auntie Kau'i and her husband Pono first arrived at Walt Disney World in 1971 to start a luau dinner show, and she has been a mainstay at the resort ever since. You can often find her in the lobby of the resort, making leis or telling stories of the Polynesian culture's history and traditions - including stories about hula.

    You can still find the lessons passed on from Auntie Kau'i (and Auntie herself) in the teaching of hula dancing in the lobby of the Polynesian most days of the week. Someone is usually there Monday through Friday at 3:45, and Saturday mornings beginning at 10 AM. The weekday lessons are geared more towards the younger set, but everyone is welcome to participate - especially on Saturdays. Times are subject to change, but just ask at the front desk for a schedule.

    Even if you don't stop in to learn to hula, definitely stop by to enjoy a cocktail at Trader Sam's Tiki Terrace or see Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show. It's a trip to the Polynesian islands right there in Central Florida.

    Mahalo, Jitnapa.
