    I am going to Disney World in Dec.with my daughter for her 10th Bday.First time visiting! I was wondering if there will be any Disney stars/celebrities there around that time? Thanks!

    Hi Libby,

    The short answer to your question is, probably.  There are often celebrities at Walt Disney World, either touring the parks or doing publicity work.  However, Disney is the model of discretion when it comes to taking care of stars.  If a celebrity is visiting for enjoyment, they usually want to have the same enjoyable time as the rest of the guests visiting the parks.  If they are there for work purposes, they usually need to be able to get the job done with as few distractions as possible to keep to their busy schedule.

    Last year I happened to be in Epcot at the same time as the Jonas Brothers.  I really ran upon them by accident, and not too many people had knowledge of their whereabouts.  Even so, there were hundreds of pre-teen girls waiting around to catch a glimpse of their favorite star.  Could you imagine what would happen if everyone knew he would be there.  Thousands of screaming fans would create quite a commotion (not to mention traffic jam) for guests just wanting to spend a nice day in the parks.

    I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

    Have a magical vacation!
