    We met Sylvester Stallone at Pleasure Island many years ago. He was in the area filming Oscar. He's very short !

    We saw Aerosmith checking out of the Beach Club as we were checking in a few years back. They were there for the Rock 'N' Roll Roller Coaster.

    We ate breakfast at the Cape May Cafe next to MLB pitcher Frank Viola many years ago as well.

    A few years ago, we were at DTD and saw this swarm of people. We ran over to see what all the commotion was and there was Michale Jackson with one of his children.

    Since I wasn't allowed to ask, I went and looked it up myself:rotfl: . I haven't seen anyone famous in my 2 visits. I probably wouldn't recognize most of them unless there was a really big crowd around them.

    2004 a football player (can't remember which one) coming out of ESPN Zone on the Boardwalk.

    Rode on Buzz Light year in the car behind NBA Detroit PIstons star Rasheed Wallace. After the ride, I tried to just say hello to him and maybe hopefully shake his hand (I'm an NBA fan and would have loved to meet him).

    However, he was a complete jerk and refused to speak to me. I said "Mr. Wallace, as a fan, I just wanted to say hello to you". He then gave me a dirty look, which my wife has from standing off in the distance (she actually has a picture of him giving me a dirty look), and then he walked off. I admit, I wasn't all that shocked considering the way he acts when he plays basketball games, but I figured he was at WDW and would be nice.

    Later I realized it wasn't just me when hilariously a guy happened to see him and the guy just happened to be wearing a pistons jersey. The guy went up to him and Rasheed even gave him the cold shoulder. I just laughed like crazy. When I saw the guy in the Pistons jersey walk by me, I said "Nice guy huh?". The guy just shook his head.

    So, just FYI, Rasheed Wallace is just as much of a jerk in real life as you see on TV.

    This last December my sister and her famly saw Donny Osmond. THey took pictures. He was on one of the buses going to his resort. They got pictures. It was neat. I couldn't believe he would ride the regular buses like us "common folk". LOL

    In May (I think the 10th or 11th) we seen Tony Siragusa (NFL--Ravens & Colts) and his family going onto Big Thunder Mtn Railroad (escorted through the VIP entrance, of course)....my husband wanted to wait outside until he came off so he could get a pic (to PROVE it...you know how men are!!)...we did get a pic from a distance but did not speak to him out of respect...we felt he deserved it since he was spending private time with his wife and child.

    At Disneyland I saw The Olsen twins years ago, and Tia and Tamera Mowry getting on It's a Small World. I know there's a couple others but I can't think of them now....

    That's so cool to be on the plane with one of the Myth Busters. We LOVE that show! Even my kids would love to meet one of them. We're less than 2 hours from San Francisco, and I've though so many times we should figure out where their "garage" is so we can drive by it while we're out there! That would be neat :D

    Great pic to have! But jerk or not, if I was approached by people ALL day long on my vacation trying to enjoy Disney, I might get cranky. How could you enjoy your vacation time? For you it was only a few seconds, but constantly all day could be irritating. Although I wouldn't give dirty looks...:eek:
