The Ego Has Landed! Stephen Colbert Visits Disneyland Resort

posted on August 30th, 2010 by George Savvas, Public Relations Director, Disneyland Resort


Stephen Colbert was in town last weekend to attend the 62nd Primetime Emmy® Awards, and he made time to bring his family back to the Disneyland Resort.

I can “repor” that Stephen’s alter ego was nowhere to be found during our time together, but he did get a little “goofy” outside Soarin’ Over California at Disney California Adventure park, which Stephen described as “fantastic!”

Congratulations, Stephen on your team’s Emmy® for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program!

That guy’s pretty funny, but I am mesmerized by his goggle Mickey Ears. Are those for sale by Soarin’ Over California? I’ll be there all weekend to run in the Disneyland Half Marathon and will pick up those ears if they’re available.

The hat, goggles and ears are all available at Disney California Adventure park (Greetings from California and Fly ‘n’ Buy’). It just takes personalized customization (and a little sewing) to complete the “ensemble.” Can’t imagine why Stephen didn’t wear it on the red carpet yesterday!

That is pretty cool. He was here leg wrestling a local news crew not to long ago. I would have loved to have met him. I look forward to being out there in a few weeks and creating my own hat with goggles!
