The Showgirl Birds come down on a bird mobile in the middle of the room. They are white cockatoos with French names - Collette, Suzette, Mimi, Gigi, Fifi, and Josephine. In Aloha E Komo Mai!, they wear Stitch ears when they come down and sing.

Eight macaws, twelve toucans, six cockatoos, nine forktails, and an assortment of other birds make up the glee club and the rest of the bird chorus.
