  1. My daughter and I saw Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in front of the castle with a large group that I assume is his family while we were running for our Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservation before the park opened one morning. Also, my husband and I saw Lance Bass several times in Epcot one evening. Lance was posing with a young lady outside of the Rose & Crown pub and my husband ran over and put his arm around Lance’s shoulder and joked that he was next – funny thing was he had no idea it was a famous celebrity he was joking around with.

  2. One star was sitting with Walt Disney. Another stayed in Cinderella Castle. And I’m guessing all the others had escorts getting them in every ride. They are NOT just like us.

  3. What would be neat is pics of people before they were stars working at a Disney park, like Steve Martin’ photo. Not a current star. There has to be a few.

    1. I agree with Jack Jones, it would be nice to see stars when they worked at Disney. And your “Stars, They’re Just Like Us”, not unless you’re really wealthy.

      1. A quick Google search gives me the names of a couple dozen famous (or infamous!) people who used to work at Disney Parks, but no photos of them in those jobs. We’ll have to do some more digging on that, it could be fun if we can find them! As for the “Stars, They’re Just Like Us” title — it’s a tongue-in-cheek reference to a recurring feature in US Weekly magazine. We don’t seriously think that Neil Patrick Harris and Tina Fey experience the parks the same way we do! LOL
