    I am such a big Toy Story 3 fan and wanted to know if Lotso Huggin' Bear appears anywhere in the parks for photo ops? I need to know if he smells like strawberries in real life!

    Oh, Melissa!

    You are in luck! Lotso DOES appear for photo opps--in Hollywood Studios at the Magic of Disney Animation! You can also see some of the Incredibles in there and Sorcerer Mickey!

    I could have sworn that Lotso smells like strawberries but after consulting some VERY knowledgeable Disney Moms, they say the answer is no. Apprently, Disney couldn't make him smelly (rather, scented) due to allergies. *sniff* But apparently, at times they pipe in some strawberry scent in the room. So, maybe you'll get your strawberry wish!

    I also heard through the grapevine that Lotso might be leaving soon. So, when you get to the park, make sure you talk to someone in Guest Services, they can call a hotline and find out exactly where all the characters are that day!

    Have LOTSO fun on your trip! (I couldn't resist!)
