I spent all day hunting around for Johnny Depp at Disneyland, but never came across him. (Big sad face!!!!) Apparently John Stamos and George Lopez were also in the park. (EVEN BIGGER SAD FACE. I loved Uncle Jesse.) I DID, however, run into Disney Channel stars Caroline Sunshine and Adam Irigoyan from “Shake It Up!”
‘Deuce’ and ‘Tinka’ were having fun in the park on Friday, May 6. We came across them at the exit of Thunder Mountain. How exciting! They were very nice and were chatting with some very excited kids. They kindly obliged to take a photo with us, and boarded the ride soon after.
Here’s our photographic evidence! Chip LOVES proof. (“Pictures or it didn’t happen!”)
