    We got back on 12/19 from a 3night on the Wonder. Prior to the cruise we spent several days at WDW that included the Candlelight Processional with Steven Curtis Chapman as the narrator. On the second night during the Toy Story show I had to go in and out of the row about 5 times before the show started (bathroom, snacks, kids, lol):rolleyes1 Anyway, on my last trip back, DH says "I think that is Steven Curtis Chapman at the end of the row." I looked and sure enough. So I went down and said "Excuse me, are you Mr. Steven Curtis Chapman?" The little girl next to him said "NO, NO he is NOT!" He chuckled and said yes and then carried on a converstaion with me for about 10 min. He was traveling with just his daughter Shaohannah "Shaoey" Hope. He was a very gracious man. It was the first time we had encountered anyone famous on the DCL. Very cool.

    Lucky you! I was at WDW last week for 2 days and intended to go to the Candlelight Processional on the 13th. I was too cold and called it a day at ~ 7 p.m. In hindsight, I wish I had gone back to my room to put on additional clothing, or gone inside somewhere at Epcot until the CP started.

    How neat that you got to see him in the CP and onboard but based on his daughters reaction she probably was enjoying the 1 on 1 time with her Dad and was hoping to not be bothered by fans which is hard when you have fame. Glad he was gracious to speak with you and hopefully he got to enjoy time with his daughter without too many people asking for a moment of his time.

    Just thought I would say that I was one of the Cast choir singers in Candlelight this year and it was FREEZING wearing just a green robe and lite shirt underneath! Although Steven was incredible nice to us which made it a wonderful couple of days preforming with him~
