My husband and I have met Lilo and Stitch on all six of our Disney trips together (and strangely neither of us have encountered these characters on trips we've taken without one another)! My favorite place to meet them is at their Best Friends Breakfast at the Polynesian Resort. I love the food and that they are rockin leis and bring along some other Disney favorites just in their Poly best. You can also catch Stitch out and about posing in the parks.
I still remember the first time I saw Lilo and Stitch on the big screen and funny enough people sometimes mistake me for being Hawaiian because my ethnicity is hard to tell when you look at me (I am actually a bit of a mutt- Irish, German, Italian, and Native American) and I had recently become smitten with Elvis. I remember my first year teaching when I had an Elvis war poster up in my classroom and kids starting calling me Lilo. :) The soundtrack is one of my very favorite and one of the few I have on my phone even now. I love Hawaiian Rollercoaster Ride! And I love Hawaiian music so the whole thing is very appealing to me!
There are tons of fun facts that I didn't see the first time I watched (but of course have found in time).
Check out some little hidden gems and fun facts from Lilo & Stitch:
In the scene where Lilo is eating a snowcone one of the postcards features "Orlando, Florida" and has a picture of none other than Walt Disney World Resort
At the end the tracking image Captain Gantu uses when searching for Stitch is a symbol used for Spaceship Earth in Epcot
Many liscence plates in the film shar ethe number A113 which can also be found in Toy Story and Cars
When Stitch licks the councilwoman towards the start of the film his saliva makes a momentary Disney "D".
In one scene Lilo throws her doll Scrump on the ground. When she runs back and picks her up the doll begins to smile.
Lilo and Nani's parents died in a rainstorm. There is a reference made that at first seems random. When Lilo wants to feed the fish Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches, she insists it is important because Pudge controls the weather.
It was originally set in Kansas before being switched to Hawaii, the 1st Disney film to be set here.
