    We are going to WDW for 8 days in June. It will be a Star Wars Weekend and I managed to get a Jedi Mickey reservation. I really didn't want 2 meals in the same restaurant but my toddler loves Handy Manny. Is the H'wood & Vine the only place to meet him

    Hello Laurie! I am so excited that you will get to experience Jedi Mickey's STAR WARS Dine at Hollywood & Vine. I also have a reservation for the Character Dining Experience, and I can't wait to meet Jedi Mickey!

     I just got off the phone with a Cast Member about the food options at the Disney Junior Play 'n Dine and Jedi Mickey's Star Wars Dine. I remembered that during the Jedi Mickey's Star Wars Dine the food was themed to Star Wars, so I figured that the food offerings would be different for the Disney Junior Play 'n Dine. The Cast Member told me that the food offered at both Character Dining Experiences is the same food. The only exception is that at dinner during Jedi Mickey's Star Wars Dine there is the addition of carved turkey breast and carved strip loin.

    I completely understand that you'd rather meet Handy Manny elsewhere and have a different dining option. You can meet Handy Manny along with other Disney Junior Characters at the Animation Courtyard continuously throughout the day. Be sure to pick up a Times Guide when you enter Disney's Hollywood Studios and check under Character Greeting Times for the available meeting times. 

    You can also see Handy Manny and other Disney Junior Characters at Disney Junior - Live on Stage! The times for this stage show is listed on the Times Guide under Show Times.

    I hope that you and your toddler get a chance to meet Handy Manny and Jedi Mickey. If you need anything else, please let us know. Have a magical Walt Disney World vacation!
