Here there guys and gals. Anonymouse here! I have some interesting Disney Character Gossip for today.

Reports are coming in that beginning July 19, Handy Manny will be retiring and Sofia the First will replace him for Meals, and Meet and Greets at Hollywood Studios.

I guess Manny is getting old and looking to retire to a community somewhere in the Orlando area 😉 Maybe he will work Part Time driving the Friendship boats like Chip plans on doing 😉

I wish had more info on this but that is all I have heard.

Any who, that is all the Disney Gossip I have right now. For my past Gossip articles be sure to check them out here.

Anonymouse searches the internet, annoys cast members, and wouldn’t think twice about using a Ouija board to find you the freshest Disney Gossip. Some of what she’ll report is confirmed, some is based on information from the rumor mill, and some, frankly, she just read on the bathroom wall in Fantasyland. So take it with a grain of salt and have fun!

  1. We have ADRs for Hollywood and Vine in October, my daughter will be so so so excited! She knows who Manny is and really likes him too, but you know girls and their princesses. Really wish Doc McStuffins would also join them, my daughter is OVER THE MOON about her.

  2. I hope this is true! My son loves Sophia and has no clue who Manny is. We’re doing the DJ lunch in September and I’d love to see Sophia there!

  3. when I was at Studios last month Manny had no one in his line and even his photographer looked so bored. I’m glad I went over and took pictures with him!

  4. Poor Manny. Hope he wasn’t forced out. We loved him, but are totally in LOVE with Sofia and her principles! Maybe he can be one of the every once in awhile pop in….
