Stars Enjoy a Walt Disney World Holiday Weekend

Duffy the Disney Bear with Actress Maria Bello

Thanksgiving week and weekend brought some talented celebrities to Walt Disney World Resort, as several stars from Tinseltown met our very own Disney Parks stars.

Phineas and Ferb with Emmy Award-Winning Entertainer Wayne Brady and His Daughter Maile

Phineas and Ferb donned their holiday best to visit with Emmy Award-winning entertainer Wayne Brady and his daughter Maile. Maile’s sunglasses complemented the color of Ferb’s hair quite nicely, in fact. Duffy the Disney Bear put on his Santa hat to visit with actress Maria Bello near his home in Epcot. Maria, who portrays a fedora-wearing detective on her crime drama series “Prime Suspect,” wore a special mouse-eared fedora for her photo with Duffy. Our pal Rafiki had the chance to “monkey around” with funnyman Seth Rogen at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, as the actor, comedian and voice actor visited Walt Disney World Resort for the weekend.

  • Wayne Brady used to live in Orlando and… um… worked for those two theme parks down the street. He still has family in area, so I’m told.

  • It’s nice to see Wayne Brady return home. For those who don’t know, Wayne grew up in Orlando and one of his first jobs was as a Cast Member at Walt Disney World.

  • I also saw Laura Michelle Kelly, the original West End Mary Poppins, at the Jungle Cruise on Thanksgiving Day!
