Sisters Mistake Costco Cashier For Maui From ‘Moana,’ And His Reaction Is Too Cute

Let’s say you were of a certain age, maybe back in the 80’s or 90’s, out shopping with your parents. What would your reaction be, if you get to the cashier and Inspector Gadget is there waiting for you? Or One of the Ninja Turtles? You’d be pretty stoked right?

That’s exactly how these two little sisters felt when down at the local Costco in Kapolei, Hawaii. Their Mom, Rella Rivera explained: ”Each time my daughters come to Costco, they search for the “real life” demi-god, Maui. Will, featured in this video also does character appearances as Maui for parties and previously at Aulani Disney resort. Thank you ,will, for bringing a smile to our daughters faces at each visit!”

What a dude! Turns out the big guy has got a heart of gold, and uses his resembelence to the cartoon hero to bring smiles to kids faces by belting out his famous call, Chee-hooo! That makes Will a hero himself, and you can tell by the sisters delighted reactions that they love it when he is there.

Scroll down to see the adorable video below!

(h/t: Some E Cards)

Rella Rivera and her two daughters often go shopping at the local Costco in Kapolei, Hawaii

“Each time my daughters come to Costco, they search for the “real life” demi-god, Maui”

This is the guy they’re looking for

He is a lovable character from the movie ‘Moana’

And… they found him! A local guy named Will who also does the character for kid’s parties

Not only that, he also had the best surprise for them!

People reacted with glee to Will’s kindness and fun-loving nature with the kids

this is SO CUTE and also this is why representation (the good kind) matter so much!

I resigned my office-job and now I am getting paid £64 hourly. How? I work over internet! My old work was making me miserable, so I was forced to try something different, two years after...I can say my life is changed-completely for the better! This is what i do... http://cutt.us/0VlX0

This brings me back a memory when i was around 7 or so. One of my dad's co-workers was a real look-alike of Bud Spencer, whose films i really loved. I was amazed that one time when i met the guy. He played around for me, like he was the real Bud Spencer, lifted me up and so on. :)

I used to live on Maui and watching this clip has made me so homesick for my beloved islands! The folks there really touched my heart.

What a sweet guy❣️ He’s probably heard people call him Maui a million times but he takes it in stride❣️

He probably gets mad tips for doing that too. Man, I'd throw him an extra 5 or so, no problem. Awesome guy! It's all about the kids, man.

He made their day - Costco should give him a big raise - and dress him up like Maui - he'd bring in more customers.

This is cool, but not what I expected. He purposely made himself look like the Disney guy. It's like seeing an Elvis impersonator. You know it's not Elvis, but the person worked hard to look like him, not just some random coincidence.
