Being a celebrity can get you special privileges almost everywhere. There is practically a separate set of laws and regulations that the world’s most famous people have. Whether it be the special VIP access or the premium service, it’s easy to get jealous of all the perks that come with being a celebrity.

It’s common for the rich and famous to want to check out Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Park to see all the things that are offered there. However, celebs will soon learn that any bad behavior at Disney Parks will not be tolerated, regardless of their star status.

Because of this, many celebrities have ended up being banned or kicked out of Disney Parks.

She told the story on the David Letterman show in 2009, saying, “It was really scary and traumatizing… They wanted us to admit that we were trying to get in for free and then ban us for life. But we were strong. We said we didn’t do it.”

  1. My mother told a story about Drew Carey behaving rudely in EPCOT.

    He didn’t get banned, but afterwards, when he realized what happened, he was very embarrassed by his behavior.

    He apologized to the cast members, I think he sent them all a bunch of treats. He said it had been very hot and he just didn’t realize how much beer he’d been drinking and the two things just made a bad combination.
