    I plan on taking my wife for her 30th birthday back to Disney World. Her favorite pal is Marie from the Aristocats. I know Marie was no longer greeting anyone but with her popularity, I am curious if she is back in the park. Thank you!

    Hi David!

    How exciting that you're taking your wife to Walt Disney World for her 30th birthday! She is going to have an amazing time! When you arrive, make sure to ask for a complimentary "Happy Birthday" button! A Cast Member can personalize it with her name and age! 

    I'm excited that character meet and greets are back in the Walt Disney World Theme Parks! Meeting the characters is one of my favorite parts about visiting! Years ago, I was able to meet Marie at EPCOT in the France Pavillion. She then moved over to Disney's Magic Kingdom and greeted Guests near the front of the park. However, Marie is no longer greeting guests at either of those locations. 

    However, character meet and greets are subject to change, so make sure to ask a Cast Member about character greetings on the day you visit the park.

    You can usually find Aristocats merchandise in the France Pavillion at EPCOT. I've also seen Marie stuffed animals at Emporium and other gift shops at the parks and Disney Springs. 

    For your wife's birthday, make an advanced dining reservation at one of the amazing restaurants at Walt Disney World, such as California Grill or Trattoria al Forno.
