Meet Celebrities in Orlando!
- Tuesday August 22nd 2023
Everyone dreams of meeting their favorite celebrities. But it can be difficult to meet most celebrities in real life, let alone take a selfie with one. Most functions that famous people attend are usually crowded, giving you no chance to get close to them. Sometimes, the TV is the only option we have to meet our favorite celebrities. But there’s a better option than that!
Madame Tussauds allows you to meet some of the most famous people without leaving Orlando. From movie stars and TV personalities to musicians and sports legends, you can meet them all here at ICON Park, Orlando.
Even though these are wax figures, the attention to detail is so perfect you might think you are with the real person. The artists who create them replicate every characteristic of the real celebrities. That includes their height, body shape, skin tone, hairstyle, outfit, and even tattoos. When you take a photo with these wax figures, no one can tell the difference between them and the real celebrity. Therefore, one of the best things to do in this museum is to take as many photos as you can with the wax figures.
So, which celebrities should you expect to meet at Madame Tussauds? They are quite a few, but we’ll focus on just a few that were recently added to the museum.

She won the tournament, received a Wonder Woman costume, and then took Trevor back to the United States. She worked as Trevor’s assistant in the U.S. where she lived a double life. Trevor didn’t know that Diana her co-worker was also the Wonder Woman superhero who often came to his rescue.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has become a household name because of his status as one of Hollywood’s biggest stars and his inspiring backstory as a former professional wrestler turned successful actor.
