    When I was at WDW in October, John Tartaglia was on a bus that I was on one afternoon going from Animal Kingdom Lodge over to the Magic Kingdom for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. I recognized him from seeing him as Grand Marshal in the Disney-MGM parade a few days later. He was appearing in kiddie concerts as Johnny at Disney-MGM. I didn't really realize who he really was and all his credits until a friend of mine who had seen him in Avenue Q about died when I told him I rode a bus with John!
