    Sometimes Disney Channel Stars are at the Theme Parks. Do they post who will be in what park and what day? If so, how far in advance can you find this out? Thank you. Teresa

    Unfortunately there is no public schedule of Disney star appearances in the parks, nor is this information posted anywhere on property. As you obviously know, Disney stars do sometimes make it to the WDW parks for special events or some sort of filming. These types of events are quite changeable, a glitch in the star's schedule or even a weather issue could force an alteration of plans or cancelation right up until the last minute. Rather than disappoint guests by having them wait for a star that ends up not appearing, Disney would rather have a delightful surprise for guests who happen to be at the parks at the time.

    When my family was vacationing at WDW in February, we were at the Animal Kingdom on the way to the Safari ride. We saw a film crew and stopped for a moment to see what was going on. As it turned out it was Moises Arias, Rico of Hannah Montana, taping a promotional piece. I have to tell you that my girls were surprised and very delighted to find him there. This was a fun story that the girls could "wow" their friends at school with when we got home, and there's no way we could have planned for it to happen.

    The only exception to this rule that I have found is that for the past two years it was announced a few weeks in advance when the Disney Channel Games were filmed. (This year it was in April.) There were limited opportunities for members of the general public to purchase tickets to this event. Information about this was available online through some independent websites that cover WDW. If you are interested, I would go to the website allearsnet.com and subscribe to their weekly newsletter. If anything is happening that the public can participate in, they'll know about it.
