Disney in Hawaii

From the LA Times: Disney’s Aulani 

Mostly good a review until:

I was surprised by the contrived and disruptive afternoon character poolside party that featured a Disney employee, using a public address system, extolling swimmers to scream, splash and hop up on deck for a hula contest. The pump-up-the-energy vibe so upset the tranquil mood that poolside loungers cringed at the paradise-wrecking spectacle.

A similar dry-land surfing lesson for kids with Chip and Dale employed more amplified pep rally exhortations that echoed throughout the resort.

Now… uh… I wasn’t there, but it *WAS* labeled as a “afternoon character poolside party” so, what did you expect?  To have the Disney characters just show up and what?  Lounge around?  It is a Disney poolside party.  Not having at least some exuberant vibes is a little like going to your standard Waikiki luau and not shouting “ALOOOOOOHA!”
