I recall the first time I saw Marie from The Aristrocats . . . we were at Hong Kong Disney and I spied her walking away with a Disney escort. I so wanted to have my (then 2 year old) daughter meet Marie and get a bit of a hug. I literally was running through HK Disney like a American lunatic! My husband thought I was nuts and I am quite sure all the Chinese visitors did too! It makes me laugh to think on it now! But, I did get my daughter a bit of a snuggle from Marie.
She of course does not remember any of these moments . . . but I am hoping she will remember the latest hug from Marie of The Aristocats!
