Here is your chance to get to know actors Stephen Amell and Rick Gonzalez like never before! While they were relaxing in one of the Polar Patios at Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park, we caught up with the TV stars for a dynamic round of rapid-fire questions.
During their recent vacation at Walt Disney World Resort, Stephen and Rick took a break from the park’s thrilling water attractions to reveal which Disney character they would play in a live-action remake, the most challenging stunts they’ve performed and so much more. Watch the video below to discover what these onscreen stars and real-life friends had to say!
We are loving the answers that these actors provided. My personal favorite is when the two were asked “What Disney villain do you think would be the toughest for the superheroes you played to take down?”. Amell answered with the iconic Maleficent while Gonzalez shouted out an answer that I think took everyone by surprise — “Goofy”, Gonzalez said.
Stephen Amell also recently took to Instagram to share of photo of him and his wife on Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin in Magic Kingdom, writing:
My wife destroyed me on this ride. She has better aim than me. Which is difficult for someone who played the greatest fictional archer of all time to admit. Thanks @waltdisneyworld
The actor also posted a photo of his beautiful family, including his daughter who dressed as Mulan for the day, writing:
Dadding @waltdisneyworld is exhausting.
Rick Gonzalez also shared this beautiful photo to his Instagram account two weeks ago, which shows off his family alongside Amell’s family, writing:
Second day. Currently taking a nap. #DadLife @waltdisneyworld #WaltDisneyWorld
It is clear that the Arrow actors are a huge Disney Parks fans. We can’t wait to see what else the two will be up to while visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth.
