    We are planning a trip in November 2019 for my son's birthday. He has said he really wants to see Handy Manny, but I've read on here that his appearances have been discontinued. Is this true? If not, where are the best places to see him?

    Hi, Erin! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you so much for stopping by to see us with your question.

    I'm afraid Manny and the tools have gone back to Sheetrock Hills to help their neighbors with some projects. You know how Mr. Lopart is always getting himself into a pickle and needs Manny's help! Fortunately, some of Manny's other Disney Junior pals have come to Walt Disney World to lend a helping hand. Be sure to drop in for a visit to the Disney Junior Dance Party! at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Your little Mouseketeer can hit the dance floor and boogie with Doc McStuffins, Timon, and Vampirina, while Mickey Mouse speeds his way to the party in his Roadster Racers gear.

    Right around the corner, you can check out Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy, where you'll get driving tips from the Piston Cup champ himself!

    Erin, to make your birthday boy's day extra special, be sure to pick up a free birthday button for him at the front desk of your Resort hotel, or at most Guest Relations or retail locations around the Theme Parks. He'll just love all the birthday wishes that come his way when he wears it. Also, you can order a birthday cake and have it delivered right to your table at his birthday dinner. We got the chocolate Mickey Mouse Celebration cake for my son's birthday this year, and oh my stars, was it delicious! Plus, the whole restaurant sang to him. It's such a sweet memory of his special day.

    I'm sorry I didn't have better news about Handy Manny, Erin, but I do hope I gave you some ideas for celebrating your son's big day at Walt Disney World. Please come see us again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
