    Oh, that reminds me (DWTS). I saw Cheryl Burke and Christian de la Fuente dining together at the Blue Bayou in summer 2008.

    Then do a Michael Jackson thing and rent out the park for yourself and have a private party. Requesting extra log boats is going too far.

    Celebrities need to get over themselves (especially those of Adam Sandler's "caliber.") They're going to a public theme park so they should know better than to request and expect special treatment. If they have all this money, they can open up their own theme park in their 50,000 acre backyard.

    Yeah, I don't think he was trying to be difficult, probably just wanted to keep his family away from all the hecklers out there. It's understandable.

    I wouldn't even recognize most celebrities in Disneyland, though. The only celebrities that really matter to me would be Mickey & the gang and of course the princesses!

    Its not their fault that they can't go to the parks as a normal guest without getting harassed. If they want to enjoy the parks they should be able to, and unfortunately they can't really do it without "special" treatment. I can't say I'm a fan of Sandler's work lately, but I've also read a lot of stories where he seems like a genuinely nice guy, so I wouldn't judge him on this one anecdote.

    Last time I was at the parks I saw Mark Cuban in Condor Flats. He was surrounded by a mob of people and was taking pictures & signing autographs for everyone. He was there for at least fifteen minutes without taking a step, probably longer. It was an awesome thing for him to do, but I felt bad for him and his family. I'd hope a plaid would help me out if I was ever in that position.

    How does it work then? Do the CM plaids get assigned to be their escorts / tour guides and get them to the front of lines or through secret passageways? Do they tell their fellow CM at the ride to clear out the other boats/vehicles?

    Disney celebs are given a tour guide. Non-Disney celebs pay for a guide. When they have a guide (aka Plaid) they will escort them through FP lines or exits. Depending on the level of the celeb, they sometimes will supply 2 guides to keep crowds back. I've been there when Gilles Marini was trying to take his child to Disneyland. People wouldn't leave him alone. I've been there when Rupert Grint and Emma Watson were trying to come off BTMRR. Note the word "trying". Their guide was having trouble getting them out with all the kids AND ADULTS blocking them for pics. I had a guide that day and my guide dropped off to go help the other guide get them "out". (I didn't know who they were at the time, learned once I met back up with my guide.) I feel for celebs who just want to visit the park.

    Re: Celebrities at DLR?

    I saw Rico Rodriguez from Modern Family on the Disneyland Railroad. He was with his family and just enjoying the parks, I know a few people near me recognized him and we sat next to his family but nobody made any mention of it to him. I know that if I was a celebrity I would still just want to enjoy the park like everyone else does.
    "Hello folks, welcome aboard the Disneyland Railroad..."
    "The Gods have been angered by all the celebratin'..."

    Memorial Day weekend we sat next to John Stamos and some friends in Downtown Disney. They were having a good time and we had fun watching servers go out of their way to walk by his table. Seemed like a good guy.

    Re: Celebrities at DLR?

    Back at Christmas a few years ago, we were just walking through the park when I motioned to my wife in the direction of a young lady. I said "that lady is crazy for wearing 6 inch stilettos for a day at Disneyland". She really looked like she was struggling to walk through the park as it was near the end of the day. My wife then pointed out it was Jessica Alba.

    If it hadn't been for the shoes I wouldn't have even noticed.

    Adam Sandler, while I am not a fan, has acted in $2.4 BILLION worth of films. He's written (and starred in) $850 million in films. Not sure what caliber that is, but he's very well known.

    Anyway, I don't think most celebrities go there "expecting" special treatment; it usually becomes a necessity. People shout at you, want to talk to you, try and shake your hand, want your autograph, follow you around. I am sure Sandler is gracious about it, but it's not his fault people gawk and yell and scream and touch.

    I bet that kind of stuff is a bit scary for little kids.

    And I can completely see where stupid young guys would repeat lines to him and shout to him that are inappropriate for his kids.

    Here's Kobe Bryant walking through one of the least crowded parts of Disneyland. People shout, touch, and follow. Imagine what it was like where it's busy.

    Here's a bunch of people just waiting for him to get off the ride before the above video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPybbSCFpGA


    Now here he is on the tea cups alone with his kids and the CM. Everyone is gathered around the tea cups staring and shouting.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZUFxVihwZE

    Granted, Kobe is 6'6", easy to spot, and more famous, but Sandler is pretty well known. I'm sure this kind of stuff gets old. And actors have people repeat lines to them all the time. Imagine people shouting inappropriate stuff at you when you're with an 8 year old daughter?

    And no, they shouldn't have to rent the park. We should have to stop bothering them.

    THIS. I can understand seeing your idol, but imagine a group of people following/stalking your family, taking pics/video of your family while you try to vacation. I don't care how much they earn, how many movies they make, they deserve family time too.
