    My son is obsessed with Handy Manny...I saw character dining at the Hollywood and Vine has Handy Manny (which is booked solid) ...are there any other locations or parks where we could see him? Thanks We will be in WDW from april 6 to 10th Thanks

    Hi Michelle!
    Thanks for coming to visit us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It is my understanding that Disney's Hollywood Studios is the only park where meet and greets with Handy Manny are offered-when you enter the park for the day, grab a Times Guide. It should give a listing of times and places for all characters that will be visiting with guests in the park for the day. If Handy Manny is greeting guests on that day, it will be noted in the Times Guide.

    My other piece of advice for you is to keep calling for those Hollywood and Vine reservations! The current policy for Disney Dining is to charge people for no-shows for their reservations, which makes people much more likely to cancel if they know they can't make it. The penalty applies for reservations that aren't cancelled at least 24 hours in advance, so try several times a day and even the day that you would like to dine at Hollywood and Vine to see if you can pick up a cancellation.

    Michelle, good luck with Handy Manny! Come back and see us if you have any additional questions!

    Best Wishes, 
    Amy B.
