The Marvel heroes come out to meet their fans at different times throughout the day, every day at Islands of Adventure. You’ll hear the sirens and see them riding their ATVs through Marvel Super Hero Island. Then they’ll spread out to different locations to sign autographs and pose for pictures with park guests.
I shot the video (below) during my visit today. You’ll see Spider-Man, Captain America, Rogue and Storm in the video. But at other times you may also meet Cyclops (pictured above with Storm and Rogue) and Wolverine (pictured below the video).
They’re all ears. Singer/songwriter Katy Perry (left) and actress Hayden Panettiere strike a pose April 25, 2009 with Minnie Mouse at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The duo was enjoying the theme park prior to their evening performance for the Disney Grad Nite, an annual, in-park celebration for high school seniors. Panettiere stars on the NBC series Heroes. Perry is a multi-platinum recording artist.

Here are a few of the more interesting photos I took yesterday at the FX! International Show at the Orange County Convention Center. Today, April 19, 2009, is the last day for the show this year.
Above is one of the many artist decorated vinyl Stitchs that were on display. They’re part of the Stitch Experiment 626 Project. Smaller versions of some of them were available for purchase. Check out our full FX photo gallery for more custom painted Stitchs.
I guess this Barbie is MIB – Mint In Box. Many guests came to the show in costumes, but not as many as at the MegaCon show earlier this year.
I’m not sure what the story is behind this figure or what his name is but I call him Mario Mouse.
The biggest star at the show was Leonard Nemoy from Star Trek.
James Marsters from Buffy The Vampire Slayer also had a long line to meet him.
James Kyson Lee from Heroes.
Sitting next to Leonard Nemoy was another Star Trek alumn, Jonathan Frakes.
You may not recognize him as an adult, it’s Scott Schwartz from A Christmas Story. You know, the kid who gets his tongue frozen on a flag pole.
