Miley Cyrus Missed at Disney Games
While Miley Cyrus gets her beauty rest to gear up for the Disney Games concert, her fellow Disney Channel stars wake up bright and early for Disney Games.
Later, she‚Äôll rock the house in her first appearance since the Vanity Fair scandal. Miley opens the rain-soaked show ahead of Jordan Pruitt, Demi Lovato, Cheetah Girls and Jonas Brothers.
‚ÄúI see a sign in the crowd that says ‚ÄėMiley I'm praying for you‚Äô -- thank you,‚ÄĚ she tells the crowd at Disney's Wide World of Sports in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. ‚ÄúI couldn't be more appreciative of that.‚ÄĚ
Until then, her channelmates bide their time participating in Olympic-style challenges during Disney Games. The Florida sun is hot, but the stars keep cool in a shaded tent. And get this! Disney Channel has flown in their stars from 15 countries. Hello, Berlitz!
One person who misses Miley is her Hannah Montana co-star Moises Arias. What advice has she given him?
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs very important to learn how you hang around with the fans, and how you deal with the fans. She told me ‚Äėdon‚Äôt get too rushed. Listen to everybody. Be patient. Be really cool with everybody. Make them feel special.‚Äô We‚Äôre like brother and sister.‚ÄĚ
In fact, Moises can‚Äôt wait to join Miley for a spin on Disney Hollywood Studios ride Rock ‚Äôn‚Äô Roller Coaster and Animal Kingdom's Everest. Woo-hoo!
Mob scene! The Jonas Brothers take a break from the Games to do interviews. What‚Äôs the hardest part about being famous?
‚ÄúStaying true to who you are as a person,‚ÄĚ Joe Jonas says.
Next up is Chelsea Staub, who will appear with the Jonas Brothers on their upcoming Disney Channel show J.O.N.A.S.
‚ÄúEverything they do is a blast,‚ÄĚ she tells me. ‚ÄúI had a scene with Joe one time, and we‚Äôre supposed to have a little action in the background before the camera comes into our scene. Joe passes me a note halfway through it, and we‚Äôre in a school hallway, where there‚Äôs lockers everywhere. I open it up, and it says ‚Äėsee you in math.‚Äô Then he walks off. He‚Äôs funny.‚ÄĚ
Nick Jonas is drinking a Coke while Selena Gomez signs autographs in the blazing Florida sun.
Jennifer Stone appears with Selena on the Wizards of Waverly Place. What‚Äôs Selena really like? ‚ÄúShe and I will talk about boys. She‚Äôs just as insecure about guys as we all are ‚Äď but she seems so comfortable with guys. And she eats everything. She‚Äôs a human vacuum. She will eat any kind of food. I‚Äôve seen her drink pickle juice before. It‚Äôs gross but she likes it. She‚Äôs a huge pickle fan.‚ÄĚ
Camp Rock‚Äôs Alyson Stoner looks up to Hilary Duff as her Disney role model. ‚ÄúShe designed the formula for Disney kids,‚ÄĚ Alyson tells me. ‚ÄúShe was the first one to break away from Disney and tap into other things. She did her music, her clothing, her perfume, she‚Äôs a beautiful person and still so down-to-earth. I look up to her.‚ÄĚ
What‚Äôs the best thing about being a Disney star for Camp Rock‚Äôs Meaghan Jette Martin? ‚ÄúEverything!‚ÄĚ she tells me. ‚ÄúWe went to Magic Kingdom last night, and I was walking around the park, don‚Äôt have to wait in line, just walk on the ride. Then the fireworks show started at Epcot, and we drive over the Epcot. We‚Äôre standing in the VIP section watching it, and I‚Äôm like ‚ÄėI love my life.‚Äô Disney is like one big family. All the other Disney Channel stars are so nice. We joke that we attend Disney High School ‚Äėcause that‚Äôs kind of what we do.‚ÄĚ
During my downtime, I catch up with friends at the Magic Kingdom and Disney Hollywood Studios. Love the park-hopper pass! I was in the Walt Disney World College Program. It‚Äôs great to get back to Hollywood Boulevard at the Disney Studios. Seems like I was sweeping streets just yesterday ‚Äď even if it was years ago. :)
