They are escorted through the back for their own safety and so mobbing fans don't clog up the walkways. Think of it this way: they don't get to see the highly themed queues of attractions like Indiana Jones Adventure.
I agree, the only reason is that they are escorted through an alternate entrance for their safety so that they are not mobbed, ambushed, stalked, or chased down. They still have to wait. It depends if they are recognized. Some are conspicuous.
I was at the park with a handicapped friend and my sister and we went through the exit of Pirates. While waiting there, Whoopi Goldberg was standing there with a big guy (bodyguard), and my sister pointed to her, and she kind of nodded in agreement like "Yep, I'm me."
A few days later on the View she showed pictures from her vacation to Disneyland with her niece (or something like that).
Did anyone else see Scott MacIntyre (the blind contestant from American Idol a few seasons ago) over Father's Day weekend? I am sure it must have been him. I first saw him at Indy and then at Star Tours.
Leo DiCaprio was in the Magic Shop on Main Street after park closing last night with two plaids. I heard Tobey McGuire was also seen in the park yesterday so maybe they went together since I have heard in the past they are friends.
Just wanted to add the group of guys he was with seemed to be in deep conversation over which magic trick they wanted to buy.
