The parade will be in San Francisco the Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday after the game.

Sorry, wrong parade. You're talking about the MVP thing, not the victory parade.

I saw Travis Barker from Blink 182 pushing a stroller in front of the castle one day. Last year my sister and I saw Nicholas Cage walk by us and go into the exit for Buzz Lightyear. That was awesome. In December we saw Edward James Olmos by Big Thunder Ranch. He was that night's candlelight narrator.

Not at Disneyland but when I was about 12 I saw Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman at Knott's. They are both so tiny, I swear there were probably rollercoasters that they weren't allowed to ride.

They were with the fam, so we left them alone. First time I ever saw celebs though.

...all four riding Grizzling River Rapids together. When they got off, we got autographs. I didn't feel bad bothering them because it was during an ABC Weekend, so they were all technically there for work.

Same trip, George Lopez was in the room next to us GCH.

John Ritter, wife and kid walked (quickly) past us in DCA.

Hugh Hefner and the Dahm triplets - exiting Space Mountain

Paul Pressler -- Haha, does that count? Ha.

And also, as a Seattlite, this is a big deal: Jay Buhner. It was September 12, 2001. (Day after 9/11.) The Mariners were in town to play the Angels on 9/11, but the game was cancelled.

My friends and I were in DL on 9/12 and ran into Jay Buhner and his family. I told my friends to leave them alone, don't ask for pix or autographs. We were in the Indy line behind them. We did say hi and that we were fans though. He seemed to respect that, and kept turning around to talk to US the whole way through the queue! So cool.

This morning we saw Matthew Lillard (shaggy from scooby doo movies) and family going for a canoe ride. We were two rows behind him.

Have seen lots of celebrities at DL. Four years ago, I was walking past the "Smoking Area" near the raft ride to pirate island. A CM stopped me and told he was the interpreter for a group of Japanese business men having a smoke break in the smoking area. I looked towards them when the CM pointed their way, all of them started bowing towards me. The Cm politely asked if I was ????, I said NO, who is ????. He said ???? was an american actor popular on Japanese television and the Japanese gentlemen all thought I was him. He then asked if I would pose for photos with the small group(7 or 8 of them). Hey, what the heck, I am on vacation, so I said so. We had several group pictures and each one wanted individual pictures shaking my hand and standing side by side smiling. All the while, all of them are bowing repeatably and thanking me in broken english. Quite a crowd had gathered around us watching all of this. When this was over the Cm thanked me for my time and quietly told me I should probally go ride the train and get out of the area. My wife(she was laughing the entire time) grabbed me by the arm arm and off we went to the train station. I have no idea who they thought I was but, they took home a lot of pictures of all of us. Had almost the same thing happen in downtown San Fransisco the following year.

Let me state first I am a Boston Celtics fan living in So CALI.

Last year we saw Kobe Bryant and his wife and kids all sit down next to us at Storyteller's. It was lunch on a week day. It was quiet in Storytellers. Not allot of people at all. And none of the guests eating seemed to care one bit. (I didn't, lol).

I saw Evil Dick last summer.

For a long time every time I saw a family/group/crowd with the CM's in the plain vest I figured celebrity. But not anymore. It appears so many families are paying and having private tour CM's for their vacations at DL.

A few years ago I literally bumped into Mel Gibson in New Orleans square (walking and looking at decorations). He was very gracious when I apologized. I didn't realize who he was until my husband pointed it out. Last fall my ds7 and I saw half the cast of "good luck Charlie" on the Matterhorn and "Gabe" smiled and waved at my DS when he shouted his name.

We saw Larry King with his latest wife and two of their kids. They were on the fire truck taking photos with a DL photographer and there was a Plaid with them. We didn't recognize them at first; all I saw was four people on the fire truck and I wanted my family to get on! The plaid stopped us and said no, it was a private tour and that's when DH said hey, that's Larry King. His kids were cute.

This is soooo not a celebrity, but I was in line for the Haunted Mansion behind Casey from the Bachelor and Bachelor Pad last year--the one that dated that awful Vienna chick. There was one woman between us and I was grinning and trying not to laugh at loud at her as she had makeup drawn on like she'd been drunk when she put it on and she had extensions that were coming out of her hair. She was just a mess. He saw me grinning and he smiled back at me. I had to look away so he didn't continue to think I was smiling at him. :-) No plaid CM with him.
I also happened to be there in Toontown on the day they were filming Modern Family and saw a bunch of the cast. They were filming though, not riding.
