    Have you ever seen anyone famous whist at WDW, Universal Studio or somewhere else.

    The only person we have seen is Buzz Aldrin at the Magic KIngdom when he was there for a parade for Buzz Lightyear who had returned from the International Space Station.

    Never seen anyone else in all the years we've been going.

    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Jamie Oliver and family were checking in at the hotel in DLRP at the same time as us.
    I'm usually pretty oblivious to peole around me but he was standing next to us so I couldn't miss him. :)

    He lives just outside our town so he is often in town on Saturday. He is a nice guy. Im a hopeless case. I wouldnt know a celebrity if they were right in front of me. The only people I have seen that I recognised were Richard and Judy (on the shuttle train) when we arrived back at Gatwick. He was going on and on and on, talking to a member of the Virgin staff who was accompanying them. He was really obnoxious! Judy was quiet as a mouse.

    I'm with you Mags. I worked at a health farm for many years and we had a whole range of celebs staying and I never recognised anyone until I was told who it was.

    Once I was doing some one to one training with a lovely guy in the gym who's wife had come in and asked me to reduce his belly. Whilst we were going round I asked him what he did and he smiled and said a journalist. It wasn't until the middle of the week after 4 training sessions with him that it was pointed out to me by another member of staff that he was Sir Trevor McDonald the then news reader. How bad was that.

    I found out recently that a friend of mine was at Blizzard Beach at the same time asTom Cruise, She said he was lovely and insisted in queing like everyone else despite people offering for him to go in front of them. She said that he was very polite and friendly and after the first initial scrabble for everyone to see him, through the rest of the day he was like every other tourist there.

    I once saw Debbie Harry who walked right past us at breakfast at the GF Cafe at the time she was playing at the House of Blues in DTD.
    Not on holiday, but returning from a business trip to Chicago when I got upgraded to first class with AA, I sat next to Alex Polizzi [the Hotel Inspector] back to the UK.....at least I can say that I have slept with someone famous!

    Ive been to a party at eMr Bransons house near Oxford and shaken his hand, I've escorted Phillip Schofield and Leslie Grantham around a Traction engine rally, I've met Katrina of Katrina and the waves in the loo at a gig she was doing. I bumped into Chris Packham in a cafe in Scotland, seen Dara O'Briain in both Hull and Nottingham and stalked Ed Clancy, Andy Tennant and Alex Dowsett (cyclists). Ooh the kids met David Guest on a train to York and I saw Richard E Grant in Waitrose.

    Hulk Hogan and family at Universal quite a few years back.
    Jordan and Peter at Epcot
    Whoopi Goldberg at Epcot

    I'd LOVE to say John Travolta but we have missed him by a few minutes twice now in different holidays. Once at Islands of Adventure and once at Cirque du Soleil.

    I've actually "met" quite a few, often in airline upgrades to first class when they used to do that a lot especially BA, but like Mags and Sam I'm so awful at recognising people, even people I know that I usually have to be told who they are.

    In fact as I try and remember the tall uk golfer living in the states who I met for a brief few minutes as he tried to steamroll his way past a queue and was an absolute plank I can't remember his name so that's that story

    I met and talked to tom cruise who I DID recognise but didn't let on. We had a great chat about random rubbish and I couldn't imagine a nicer guy. I'm really awful meeting new people :( way too shy really but he's not someone who's short on words

    I also saw and DID recognise Beccaberry and Johnie on the monorail which I think is a REAL claim to fame but was far too star struck to say hello
