Unexpected Famous Stars On Disney Cruise

First, I sailed with my group on Disney Magic back on April 2012 and we encountered Micah Williams, a teen star for Disney Channel. Now, just last week, we met Geraldo Rivera with his daughter on Disney Dream for the New Year's eve with my group - how amazing is that???

It seems like our group get star-struck every time we get on the ship and met someone famous.

Have you met any famous star while you were on Disney cruise???

a few years ago we were on the Magic in February while they were taking AFV - and meet Tom Bergeron - it was a great time!
Always looking forward to my next high seas adventure.

In April 2012 we sailed with Marlee Matlin on the Dream 5 night over Easter. Ran in to her only once waiting for the tram on Castaway heading to the cabanas.
