  • [Question] Anyone famous WORK at WDW B4 they were famous?

    I asked this on another Disney Web site earlier today and didn't get any responses, so I'll see if Micechatters can help.

    Who are the most famous people who have worked at Walt Disney World?

    Disneyland had Steve Martin, at least one of Nixon's Watergate crooks, and John Lassater, but I can't think of any famous people who worked at WDW in their youth.

    I'm not asking about characters or performers hired after they already were successful.

    Wayne Brady was a character performer at WDW, then he worked at Universal in the Ghostbusters show. Not a Disney cast member, but Cheryl Hines also worked at Universal, in the Hitchcock show before hitting it on the Larry David show.

      Other than Wayne Brady who already mentioned above, the only other one that comes to mind before making a name for themselves is, Kevin Richardson (Backstreet Boys), who played Aladdin before BSB got started.

      There is a handful of members of the New Mickey Mouse Club that got their start working on the show which was filmed at Disney's MGM Studios. Technically they worked at WDW but I not sure if you are interested in that info since it is there start of their future fame. But that list would include; Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Keri Russel, Ryan Gosling, Christina Aguilera, and Jessica Simpson.

          Kevin Richardson( BSB is my fave.) also worked as Goofy since he had the height( he is 6'1)

              I heard Wayne was also one of the Christmas Toy Soldiers while he worked as a character.

                              Kevin Richardson, the tall one from the Backstreet Boys, was the original Aladdin in the Aladdin parade they did at the Studios when the movie premiered back in the 90s.
                              Britney, Justin, Cristina.. they were semi famous at the time they worked at the Studios during the MMC years. Used to see them around the Studios all of the time during their breaks from filming. They were not WDW cm's perse.. but they did the show there and as such.. maybe they qualitfy as not so famous then but YES now?
                              Leeanza Cornet (sp?) the former Miss America, who I believe is married to Entertainment Tonight's dreamboat Mark Steins.. (b!) was one of the original Ariels when the "Voyage of the Little Mermaid" show at the Studios premiered.

                              EDIT: I just noticed Disney Magic mentioned the same people I did above. Sorry.
