There is a strong rumor, that seems to have real merit, that Pinocchio is returning to the Magic Kingdom soon. It is said that he will offer regular meet and greets near the Pinocchio’s Village Haus Restaurant. It’s ironic that he stopped meeting regularly when Rapunzel moved into the Fairytale Garden and there is a rumor still circulating that Merida will be retired soon. Perhaps Pinocchio regains his spot in the Magic Kingdom rotation with Merida’s departure that is rumored to be around the beginning of next year? I’d say the Pinocchio rumor has a 90-100% probability.
