My wife and I saw Donny Osmond at the CR in the lobby. He walked past us and spoke. He was very nice and of course, smiled. He was carrying his own luggage and he got into a plain mini van full of kids.

In 2005 at the Magic Kingdom in Liberty Square we saw NFL player Kurt Warner. He was with his family being "a regular dad" so we did not appraoch him.

This was during ESPN, the weekend, so we were also "on the lookout" for celebrities.

Go Sox!!

Ok, so it wasn't me who saw these people...but when my sister was a CM @ POTC she saw:
John Stamos
Lance Bass
Jeff Foxworthy and family

I saw a lady that does some show on the travel channel, but I can't remember for the life of me what her name was!

We saw Dick Clark & his wife at Spoodles when we were dining there a few years ago. We saw Cameron Diaz & Justin Timberlake at MGM several times one afternoon. We have also seen a number of ESPN newscasters and athletes...my sons & husband notice them of course!

hmmmm.......Mickey Mouse? Sorry, couldn't resist. After all, is there really anyone that would be more important to see at WDW than the Mouse?!

Tom Hanks - very, very, very far away - at MGM, when they were filming "From Earth to the Moon" there. I don't believe he was "on the clock" though, as he was walking toward Star Tours. XD

When we were there on our honeymoon in 1994 we saw the Backstreet Boys. They were on the street on Pleasure Island during the day and everyone walked right past them. Couldn't even get a toddler to stop and dance! HAhahaha! Makes me laugh when I think about how big they got after that.

Last year while we were there in November, we saw David Robinson from the San Antonio Spurs. He was with a large group of people. We saw them at the AK. My husband recognized him right away.

When I was there last month, I saw Uma Thurman!

I was waiting in line at the Jungle Cruise with some friends, and when we were walking down the final row of the queue before boarding, a saw a boat go by full of people. It was mostly children and only a few adults. I turned to one of my friends (who happens to be a big movie buff) and said, "Hey! Doesn't that lady in that boat look like Uma Thurman?" He said he didn't know, and we both shrugged and waited to get on the next boat.

Well, I didn't think about it at all until about a week ago, when I was leafing through a magazine that was lying in my house. It was either People or Star, but in the first section they show pictures of celebrities at various places and events.

Well, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a picture of Uma Thurman with Minnie. In the caption, it mentioned that she was visiting the MK the same day I was there, and she was wearing the same outfit as the lady I saw in the Jungle Cruise boat. I was flabbergasted! I couldn't believe I had finally seen a celebrity at Disney World!

That's the only celebrity I've seen so far in the World. I hope I'll see many more in the future!
