Any sightings of famous people lately in Orlando?

Hi, haven't been on here for some time but am now getting excited about my Trip in October(its never to early to start planning and countdown!) Anyway, it got me thinking about a post I read with interest that was posted on here a few years back on star spotting in Orlando. For example, someone spotted Jonathan Ross in Epcot, Adam Woodyatt (Ian Beale) on the ride Journey to Atlantis etc. Any recent sighting of famous people, I wonder?

The actor Warwick Davis was on our flight out in November and was staying at the same hotel, Portofino Bay. I believe there was some sort of Harry Potter "do" going on at Universal that week.

Well I saw Mickey Mouse and was able to get his autograph in December. Lol

We saw Joe Rhodes one time at AK also, but i was too much in awe to even try to go up and get his autograph.

We saw a football player entering the exit for Big Thunder Mountain with his family, I cant remember who. It was also during ESPN the weekend so we were looking for the athletes who they scheduled to appear.

A shame they ended the espn weekend. My family enjoyed meeting the athletes. I skipped it, not my thing.
