A few years ago my kids with their significant others met Rob and Amber from Survivor and the Amazing Race (huge to me which is silly, but they were my favorite!) and we have a great picture of my daughter with the two of them.

Our last trip, my DD and I saw George Lucas at Beaches & Cream with his family and she talked to him briefly.

DD & I will be back in September, here's hoping?!...

Four years ago I saw Shaquille O'neal and his children. Mob was following him through Liberty Square area. Not a fan, but he's hard to miss!

It was funny, because the guy is absolutely enormous (height wise). I think he's like 7'7", or something like that. Anyway, if you looked at the crowd in front of us, it was a mass sea of heads, and then this guy whose entire torso was above it all.

The funniest, though, was his poor kid. He put his kid on his shoulders as he was walking around... I kept thinking of how terrified that kid must be, seeing as he's so far up there.

I've seen him a few times where we live. He hosts a basketball camp each year. He's SUPER SUPER tall. Also seen him at the MCI (Verzion center) down in DC.

While staying at the Boardwalk 2 yrs ago, we literally almost ran into Haley Joel Osment walking down the hall with a girl on each arm! He was there doing the Candlelight Processional.

The same trip we saw one of the Olsen twins at MK. She looked like a spoiled little brat!

Saw Samantha Brown outside of the Hoop Dee Doo. Very nice lady. My wife went up to her to tell her what a fan she was and she offered my wife a picture with her. Talked to our 6 year old too.

Didn't see this, but if I did, I think the entire Universe would just end:

I like to think that I am too cool to care. Infact, we just got back from NYC. We stayed at the Ritz Central Park and that place was loaded with celebs. Rode in the same elevator with Kate Beckinsale and her family twice but who is counting. We even got into a cab that she had had exited but really...........who's counting??

At disney we have seen tons of celebs. This past ESPN weekend, David Robinson and Michelle Kwan were at the AKL kilamajaro club. The boys meet many athletes at MGM. No big deal to me really.

A few weeks ago, we ran into CORBIN BLEU (BLUE??) from High School Musical and I lost it!! He was walking through MGM with his Dad. The kids had their picture taken and I jumped in too!! But I was really only excited for my kids to meet him.

I was at MK in April 2006 when they were taping the season finale for America's Funniest Videos. They had a stage set up right after the train station when you first come in. We saw Tom Bergeron (sp?) several times on stage warming the crowd up. We did not stay for the taping of the program because it started after the fireworks and we had to drive home the next morning.
