Celebrities Are Just Like Us! They Love Trips to Disneyland

By Michael Feb 17, 2024

Celebrities are just as obsessed with Disney World and Disneyland as anyone else — and these photos prove it.

When Hollywood’s A-listers wish upon a star, they just might end up at one of Mickey Mouse’s theme parks. However, some celebs started making trips to Cinderella’s castle long before they were well known.

“I grew up in Orange County, so I grew up going to Disneyland all the time,” Milo Ventimiglia explained during a February 2018 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, noting that he spent an eventful 12th birthday at the California park. “Growing up at Disneyland, I mean, it was one of those places that you’d go and you’d fall in love, but you’d also, like, go and, like, get in real trouble.”

Ryan Gosling had a similar experience with Disney after growing up on the Mickey Mouse Club Florida set. “That place was a landscape to me. I had adventures every day. … Backstage at Disney World, there are stories,” he told Esquire in August 2011. “Mickey Mouse with his head off, drinking coffee on break. Pirates on the phone. Ghosts in line for food. It just made me see things.”
