    Best use of a celebrity in a show or attraction

    My god, I actually posted a poll. I never seen this question thrown out there, so I figured it would be fun. So what attraction has the best use of a celebrity if any?

    Re: Best use of a celebrity in a show or attraction

    The Bob now considers himself a celebrity? On par with Nathan Lane and Julie Andrews? The power of ego boggles the mind. Next the meets at the hub will be COTB. Heaven help us.
    As nice as the other parks are, we must always remember that it all began at Disneyland. Disneyland should be the crown jewel in the Disney crown.

    Re: Best use of a celebrity in a show or attraction

    As much as I love the Bob and his awesome booty dance, I have to say Patrick in Soarin. He freaking rocks out loud. The guy doesn't even have to say anything and he cracks me up.

    It's not ego, just a weird sense of self importance. Why do you think HISTA has been around for so long? It's not because of the "special effects" it's because of the major star power before hand. Who's with me on that one?......anyone?

    I vote Julie Andrews. She did a wonderful job narrating R...DCT.

    Re: Best use of a celebrity in a show or attraction

    As much as I like Nathan Lane, Tom Morrow, apparently, is performed by another actor who happened to provide the voice of Timon in the television series, "Timon & Pumbaa".

    I was fooled myself until someone at the Disney Character Voices division corrected my impression.

    Whoopi Goldberg is probably the best bit of casting.

    Queen Califia, the black goddess ruler of the mythical island paradise from which California takes its name, is given a nice sense of both contemporary vitality and timelessness with Goldberg in the role. I can't think of any other actress who could have done the job.

    There's one U didn't mention. I like Pee Wee Herman as Rex in Star Tours.

    Re: Best use of a celebrity in a show or attraction

    Now that I know where California got its name (Very cool!! I never knew that!) its almost a toss-up between Whoopie and Julie. But considering Julie's background with Disney I'd have to say that gives her a boost to the top of my list.

    Alas, I haven't had the great pleasure to see our dear THE BOB's bootie shake, so that may have upset my apple cart.

    I vote none of the above. I say Sid Ceaser in Pirates of The Carribean

    Back in the 60's wasn't Timothy Leary your host on Alice in Wonderland?

    Maybe I'm halucinating again.

    Re: Best use of a celebrity in a show or attraction

    I voted for Steve Martin because the new 50th show is funny, entertaining, and really nicely done. Runner-up would be Julie Andrews, and I would have given her my vote if the amount of time she actually talks throughout the fireworks show is really very short in comparison to the length of the entire show, but her part is very nice.

    Haven't seen you personally dance at HISTA, but have seen you do your performance in other areas of the Park....gotta go with you The Bob!
