I didn't meet anyone, but I worked in a restaurant in DCA and made food for many celebrities. Ones I can think of are Julianne Moore, Kourtney Kardashian and John Lasseter (he's totally a celebrity!)

A friend of mine in Attractions has seen Dick Van Dyke, and a quite a few of the more famous Imagineers. He always gets excited telling me since It's a dream to work with those folks.

Neil Patrick Harris and his husband are always a trip when they go to Disneyland. They do go to Walt Disney World at times with the kids, but there's a well-known picture from the Disneyland Resort, I believe.

Have a Magical day!

I worked in Storybook Circus during the opening of New Fantasyland so often saw the gang I've affectionately named the "Disney Power People." Seeing John Lasseter was a favorite Perhaps not celebrities in the popular sense but definitely in the Disney sense.

I put Hanson on my Dumbo. Collected their boarding passes and checked their seatbelts. As a girl who grew up in the late 90s that was awesome!

But my favorite was my Neil Patrick Harris. I gave his daughter some stickers and tried to make her stop crying when they were in line for the Barnstormer. A few days later he was in line for Dumbo when I was lecturing some kids who were trying to cut the line by barging ahead of this poor little lady in an ECV. I let him into the Dumbo play area and he looked at me and said, "Thank you very much, Nicole." I almost DIED.

I would have probably died, too. NPH just seems like the coolest person ever. Seriously. I knew I'd seen pictures of he & his family there before, so i wasn't surprised he was there, just more jealous of my friend who saw him in person, haha.

I saw Courteney Cox at Epcot. It wasn't very exciting but she was short had sunglasses on and was just standing there haha.
Steve Carrell and Lady Gaga also came to Epcot while I was there but I didn't see them.

I think I would die if I saw NPH!! I am a huge broadway junkie so since he host the Tony's every year he became a favorite celebrity of mine quickly!

Then John Lasseter is like disney royalty!

I loaded Cake Boss onto my ride. Didn't recognize him until my friend told me who he was after the fact. I've also seen Patrick Harris and Marty Sklar from a distance.

Some other CPs and I used to talk about what celebrities we might "break character" around. I think I'd be okay around anyone but Paul McCartney... I'm not sure how I'd contain myself around him (maybe Bono as well). One of my friends had a huge crush on Neil Patrick Harris; good thing she wasn't around when he rode our ride...

Let's see ... I've loaded Steve Wilkos and Gwen Stefani on the Barnstormer, and have seen Joey Fatone ... I've also met Kelly Monaco and Julie Berman while working Super Soap Weekend, Peter Mayhew, Warwick Davis and Jake Lloyd while working Star Wars Weekend, and was introduced to Gary Sinise at LMA. (although, technically, none of these were on my CP, they were all after I went FT)

On my CP ... um ... I met the "Diabolo Girls" from Cirque du Soleil La Nouba ... and Mickey Mouse. (He's a celebrity, right?)

I have meet Johnny Depp and Justin Bieber. Jennifer Hudson rode on the Jungle Cruise (where I worked) but didn't meet her. I was there during the taping of the parade so I saw Mario Lopez and everyone involved with that!
