A friend showed me some comic strips from a Bloom County book called Penguin Dreams. It has a series about Opus going to visit Michael Jackson and depicting Jackson surrounded by costumed characters and security dressed like fairy tales.

It was funny but it also made me think about something. Have there ever been any cases of celebrites who are particularly rabid Disney fans visiting the parks and paying lots of extra dough for things that ordinary folks don't otherwise get? Things like having one of the parks to themselves and family, getting characters joining them all day, reservations on all rides, things like that? Take Jackson for instance. Has he ever paid up the nose to have some special priviledge along those lines?

I've always wondered about that sort of thing as I'm curious to know how much the money of a celebrity can talk when it comes to visiting Disney parks.

I think the most famous (or infamous?) example of this is when Elizabeth Taylor bought the whole Disneyland Park one night for her birthday party and invited all of her Hollywood friends. :dollar:

One day about four months ago a coworker of mine's husband who is a security guard at Epcot (wow...that's a mouthful) :D saw Michael Jackson and his kids just walking around the park.  Pretty interesting to hear him talk about seeing him.

Sometimes celeberties just want to come in the park and enjoy themselves like everybody else :)

I also meet Larry King and his family a couple of years ago when they were at AK.  It was him, his wife, their two boys and their nannies...they did have a Disney Ambassador with them but that was it.  We rode the same train back to Conservation Station.  It was cool :bigsmile:
