Photos: Hollywood celebrities at play in Disneyland

Movie stars, television actors, rock singers, fashion models and professional athletes are just like you and me. They want to take their families and friends to


for a day of fun. But that's not always as easy when you're better known than

Mickey Mouse


To avoid hassles from overzealous fans and the ever-present paparazzi, celebrities trade front-of-the-line VIP treatment from the Anaheim theme park for a few snapshots on Disneyland rides and with Disney characters that show up in celebrity magazines and on entertainment shows.

Disneyland often plays host to red carpet movie premieres, star-studded attraction debuts and big production special events that draw scores of celebrities to the park.
