  • Celebrities who worked in Disney parks?

    I haven't gone through each and every section & thread of MiceChat, so if this kind of thread is already existing, please excuse me and direct me in the right thread!

    Anyway, while reading your celebrity sightings at Disneyland, it inspired me to memorize how many celebrities (movie stars, tv stars, singers, entertainers whatsoever) have worked in Disney parks before they became "bigger".

    Despite of thinking very hard, I can remember only two people - although I KNOW there has to be many many more. Ex-mrs. Kevin Costner (I don't even remember her name, sorry) is one that I recall --- although I don't remember exactly was it in Disneyland and was she performing even Snow White..!!

    Second person that comes into my mind is British actor Kevin Sacre (I liked his character very much in the short-lived, very bizarre television "soap" NIGHTANDAY). In his early days Sacre was performing Aladdin in Disneyland Paris.

    So, if this kind of thread hasn't yet been invented, please continue sharing your knowledge - and favorites, personal memories, experiences, etc - on the subject.

    The only ones I can thing of for now are Steve Martin, who worked the magic shop on Main St at Disneyland, and Wayne Brady who worked at WDW.

    Not sure if this really counts but the New Mickey Mouse Club (from the '90) was filmed at D-MGM so technically they worked at the parks, they include Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Keri Russell, Christina Aguilera, Ryan Gosling.

      John Lasseter, no? Or does he not count as a celebrity?

        The drama teacher in High School Musical, Alyson Reed, once played Alice in Wonderland at Disneyland, and on the imfamous side, Katherine Harris, before she became involved in the 2000 Florida Election Fix, played Snow White at WDW.

          Kevin Richardson of the Backstreet Boys was Tigger & Aladdin at the Studios. Wayne Brady did fur in the Tigger height range before he moved to the Comedy Warehouse at PI.

            I deleted my own post... I missed Steve Martin's mention above.

              Leannza Cornett, the former Miss America, once worked as Ariel in Voyage of The Little Mermaid at WDW IIRC.

                  Good morning, son
                  In twenty years from now
                  Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                  And I can tell you 'bout today
                  And how I picked you up and everything changed
                  It was pain
                  Sunny days and rain
                  I knew you'd feel the same things...

                    Yeah, if I remember correctly he worked as a Jungle Cruise skipper. Kinda makes you think, anyone try to remember 30 years ago, that young guy who was cracking jokes on the Jungle Cruise could easily have been him. And also think, someone who worked in such a small role is now pretty much in charge of the entire company. Cool, huh?

                        I forget who but someone who was part of the Nixon administration was a JC skipper and gave Nixon a special ride around the jungle with him at the helm.

                        And also, while not a 'celebrity' and really didn't actually work there, but Henry Kissinger (former Secretary of State) used to like to wear CM jackets and help people out, or so I'm told.

                          She was actually the first Ariel in that show.

                          I remember years ago after MMC was canceled, one of the mouseketeers was still working at WDW. Damien, I think it was -- he was controlling the very long line forming to see Mickey in Toontown Fair.

                          So, does celebrity to CM count?
