This is a very cute article about meeting Lots-o-Huggin bear at Disney’s Hollywood Studios from The Daily Disney.
Lotso is short for Lots-O’-Huggin’, and the DHS character (set up in the Magic of Disney Animation building) typically greets guests with open arms and lots of (wait for it, wait for it) huggin’. It’s pretty endearing. Lotso is kinda big, and I’m not really sure how he signs autographs with those big paws, but he does it.
The line was too long for my tastes, so I can only imagine if he smells like strawberry as the plush doll versions of him in the stores do.
Lotso’s stomping grounds are where the Up characters used to be. The current scenery includes toy blocks that spell out TS3 and a green army man who moves up and down a yo-yo string above Lotso’s head.
