    Has Anyone Ever Seen A Celebrity at WDW?

    Hey yall,
    Sounds like Paula Deen don't it.
    Let's get this new thread going!
    Has anyone ever seen a celebrity at WDW?NO,not in a show or a special appearance,but there as a guest,in the parks,riding rides and such with their families.Sometimes in cognito.
    Even though I am starting this thread,I unfortunately have not seen a celebrity at any place at WDW.BUT! My brother and his family was in line for the Peter Pan ride,and waiting in the que line,was Jerry Seinfeld and his kids.He made eye contact with Jerry,nodded to him and that was it.He didn't bother him or draw attention to him.I am sure Jerry appreciated that from my brother.
    Yall post some awesome encounters if ya have any.

    Re: Has Anyone Ever Seen A Celebrity at WDW?

    I don't remember this, seeing as I was only 4 years old at the time, but my parents tell me that we stood in line for It's a Small World right behind Candace Cameron. It's to bad that I didn't even know about Full House untill a few years ago '^^
    Like you though, we didn't bother her or point her out. It must be stressful to deal with that stuff all the time. Especially if you're on vacation...
    When will my reflection show who I am inside?

    Re: Has Anyone Ever Seen A Celebrity at WDW?

    As many times as I've been to the World, I'm sure I've seen some. But as I am not very observant and not really up to date on celebrities, I have never noticed them. It's really cool to think that you may be standing near a celebrity and never even know it.

    Of course, If Jerry was there, I certainly would have noticed him as I'm a HUGE Seinfeld fan, haha!

    Does Lou Mongello count?

    I think I saw Joey Fatone last year during the Everest Challenge. I saw The View girls once shooting a commercial.

    I've always thought that celebs that go the route of the special CM escorts are just begging for the attention of the public. I'm sure that as long as you keep quiet and don't draw attention to yourself most stars could walk around unnoticed because most of us are just too wrapped up in being at WDW.

    I saw Spike Lee and family on Test Track, and once, when I was exiting Splash Mountain, Paris Hilton was coming through the exit with her ring of people, to get on the ride.

    I saw Valerie Bertinelli (sp?) at the Y&B rocking in a rocking chair. DS has met quite a few at parties in and around Orlando. It's a fun place to visit for all

    We saw Santa Claus in June 2003. We were eating supper at the tables near Rosie's before Fantasmic and the gentleman at the table next to us was dressed in red shorts and red polo shirt. With his beard and hair, he certainly looked like Santa. I said hello and it turned out he was a professional Santa from Atlanta. My kids were all young and had their picture taken with him. It made a great Christmas card that year and they tell people they met Santa at DHS.

    Paris Hilton, famous for being famous with no marketable skills. Only in America. I wonder if anyone would notice her if she was at the parks w/no entourage and stood in line like the rest of us commoners without opening her mouth.

    I saw Alan Thicke walking across a bridge to Pleasure Island while I was walking out. I pointed at him and his entourage of sweater-wearing people and shouted; "HEY IT'S ALAN THICKE!" I'm pretty sure he appreciated this.

    The first time my family went in 1994, we met Shirley Jones from the Partridge Family at Narcoosee's...One of my favorite movies is The Music Man, so she will always be Marian the Librarian to me
