INTRODUCTION


Star-watching is a popular attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios, where celebrities appear regularly in motorcades along Hollywood Boulevard.


VISITING CELEBRITIES


Besides Mickey and Minnie and their friends, many other show biz celebrities, like Cuba Gooding, Jr., pictured, visit the Disney's Hollywood Studios. These visits are not usually announced more than a week in advance, so often you just happen upon them by chance.

Among the stars whose handprints are captured in cement in the courtyard of the Chinese Theater: Sylvester Stallone, Carol Burnett, Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, Billy Joel, Christie Brinkley, Charlie Sheen, the late Jim Varney, and George Lucas (at left).


TOURING TIPS


Find out if any celebrities will be visiting the Disney's Hollywood Studios during your visit to the theme park by checking with Guest Relations or the Cast Members at the Hollywood Junction at the corner of Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards. You might also try calling 1-407-WDISNEY a few days before you leave for Walt Disney World to determine if any celebrity visits have been announced.

Usually, celebrities are brought to the front of the Chinese Theater by motorcade along Hollywood Boulevard.

Most celebrity activities, such as the handprints in cement, autograph sessions, or interviews, take place in front of the Chinese Theater, but events sometimes have taken place elsewhere in the park.
