And the Oscar goes to……
When we go to Disneyland, we try not to just go to Disneyland (even though that’s pretty hard!)….there are lots of other things to do and see in LA.
Like strolling down the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Blvd.
You start on the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Vine Street in Hollywood and start walking west. [Trivia: We live on Vine Street!]
There are over 2,600 stars embedded in the sidewalk in the 15 blocks of the Walk of Fame. There’s a lot to see.
Star Finder: Find the Star
We were interested in seeing all the Disney ones and there are A LOT of those!
(Note: The area just 1 block off Hollywood Blvd. is a very rough neighborhood! Only do this walk during the day!)
Hollywood & Vine
We found Walt Disney’s star! #1 star we were looking for!!!
It all started with a mouse….
Snow White has a star too!
In front of the famous Chinese Theater on Hollywood Blvd. There are a lot of performers dressed up here doing photo ops. This is where you can see the handprints and sometimes footprints of stars in the cement.

1939: Special Award for Snow White
Walt Disney won a total of 26 Academy Awards, and holds the record for most Academy Awards wins and most nominations in academy history.
The Hollywood Walk of Fame comprises more than 2,600 five-pointed terrazzo and brass stars embedded in the sidewalks along 15 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and three blocks of Vine Street in Hollywood, California.

DHS’s Chinese Theater
We like the Chinese Theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and can’t wait for the new attraction to open there in 2020.

Just like the Chinese Theater in Hollywood, Disney holds cement signing ceremonies for stars visiting Disney World. Mark Hamill, 1990.
We’ve written two books about our time working – and playing – as Disney Cast Members at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
Both are available on Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle: Two Girls and a Mouse Tale and Adventures in the Animal Kingdom.
