    I've seen Carlos Mencia walking down Main Street.

    I also saw Jorge Garcia at the Pixar Play Parade a few years ago.

    Didn't approach either, but it was cool to see them!

    Saw AJ McLean from the backstreet boys, when they were still popular... this was in 2000 and my kids just stared, he and his girlfriend were 5 people ahead of us for Spaceship Earth, then we ran into them again at Nemo.

    My wife is a manager at the Jamba Juice at downtown disney and she has seen an array of celebrities come in, she always knows its a celebrity when they have the plaid vested disney CM escorting them around!

    She has had Albert Pujols, Tom Cruise, John C. Reilly and many others that aren't coming to mind come in to her store or walk close by!

    I haven't. My wife said when she went with her friends for her senior trip they saw Steven Tyler. Her friend started snapping pictures and she states she didn't care, she was just impatient as they'd shut the ride down temporarily to let him and his posse on California Screamin'. (Which they were in line for)

    Bobby Brown pre Whitney Houston. Actually it was a scheduled New Edition concert back in 1984, but you weren't specific if it had to be a visitor or if it could be a performer.

    Just saw Halle Berry twice yesterday. Once on IASW with a private boat and CM and again leaving the GCH as we were entering. Again, with a CM. I didn't do anything, just talked about with my DH.

    Never seen a celebrity.

    But on a number of occasions we have run in to people we know from back home. We didn't know they were going at the same time.

    It's funny to run into someone so far from home.

    I was there Saturday night and saw Kiernan Shipka (Sally Draper on Mad Men) in Downtown Disney. My mom and I were so excited!

    We have seen Adam Carolla in Blue Bayou. We were waiting in the lobby for our name to be called and he walked out with his family. They stood outside talking for a bit so my husband went up to him and talked to him for a minute. He thought it was the coolest thing ever.

    I've read that if you are by Pirates of the Caribbean and you can get a wifi signal then it mean there is a celebrity in the park or someone with lots of money who can pay for the Dream Suite. I either read it here or on a another Disney website.

    In 1995 we saw Arnold Schwartzenneger, Maria Shriver and their kids. We were in line for the Jungle Cruise and they came in through the exit and got to ride on a boat with no other guests on it. I wanted to take a picture, but my sister talked me out of it because she thought it was tacky. We later saw them on the Storybook boat ride, again they had their own boat. I was surprised how Arnold did not seem that big in person.

    I saw Sean Astin this past Sunday with a VIP tour guide at the radiator springs racers or whatever the Cars ride is called.

    He was ranting about that the other day on his podcast. I guess Jimmy Kimmel bought his family the VIP tour guide thing and his family wanted to eat during the time they had the guide and this made him angry since they were essentially wasting their time with the guide.

    I know its the wrong thread but in april of 91 I was following the grateful dead down the east coast and since I always loved disney I had to go to the magic kingdom in Orlando. While there we saw Jerry Garcia, all I said was Thank You and play morning dew, he just nodded they didn't play morning dew that night, but they did the next night.

    In October of 2010, I saw Jon Favreau (director of Iron Man, Monica's boxer boyfriend on "Friends") shopping in the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney. He was there shopping with his little daughter, so I chose not to bother him.
