October 17, 2012 - Shake-A-Shaka Pool Party

After exploring awhile, I really wanted to see if I could meet any of the characters.  I knew it was fairly late in the day and saw in the Daily 'Iwa, the Aulani's daily newspaper, that a "Shake-A-Shaka Pool Party" would be taking place near Rainbow Reef and that it would be an opportunity to meet some of your favorite Disney characters.

I could already tell before the characters even arrived that this was something for small children.  And, asking a cast member, they told me the same.  But, they encouraged me to stay if I wanted to take pictures.  And, having nothing more pressing to do, I decided to stay.

Arriving were Chip 'n' Dale in brightly colored shirts with kukui nut leis around their necks...

...they taught all the kids how to surf and ride the waves.

...and, after it was all said and done, they left without a meet-and-greet opportunity even for the kids.

I think it is a cute "show" for what it is supposed to be...for little kids.  But, I was hoping to actually get pictures with the characters and knew that Chip 'n' Dale would be meeting somewhere in the Waikolohe Valley later that day...
