    Hello! We are coming for a visit to Hollywood studios especially to check out the new TOY STORY LAND...so excited: but my daughters favorites character is lotso. Does he do a meet and greet? She is dying to meet him!!

    Well howdy, Julie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You're absolutely going to LOVE Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I could spend all day just taking in the details of Andy's backyard. While you won't be able to get a strawberry-scented hug from Lotso himself, you will have "lotso" fun as you meet Sheriff Woody, Buzz Lightyear and Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl. Additionally, you might be able to catch the Green Army Patrol as they march and dance their way through the Land. Don't be surprised if they issue you a challenge when you meet them, though!

    To find out exactly which Characters will be making appearances on the day you visit, you can use your My Disney Experience mobile app. In the top center of your home screen, tap that blue arrow next to "Wait Times," choose "Characters," and then "Filter" to "Disney's Hollywood Studios." You'll see an alphabetical list of the Characters who will be appearing that day. Tap each Character's name to see their location and appearance times, find them on the map, and even get walking directions from your location! You can also find a list of Character Meeting Times on the printed Times Guides available at the Park entrance and the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard.

    Although you might not see a life-sized version of Lotso while you're there, the last time I visited Disney's Hollywood Studios I saw a huggable-sized version at the Disney & Co. shop on Hollywood Boulevard near the Crossroads of the World kiosk. (I think he even smelled like strawberries!)

    Enjoy your visit to Toy Story Land, Julie. Take a ride on Slinky Dog Dash for me!
