The Fuller House actor and his wife Caitlin McHugh just might be Disney's cutest couple. The Stamos' got engaged and honeymooned at Disney, even snapping a selfie in bride and groom mouse ears. Their son Billy, 3, is also growing up to be "a Disney kid," Stamos recently told PEOPLE, with the family making trips since he was a baby.

"We took him [to the Disney parks] a bunch [when he was younger]," Stamos said.. "I think he went there when he wasn't even a year old yet because I was working down there and we all went."

At Caitlin's request, the Disneybounders have also dressed up as characters from Aladdin, and John showed off his impressive collection of Disney memorabilia on The Ellen DeGeneres Show — including a phone that belonged to Walt Disney himself!

The California native once had a run-in with the Disney law after her older brother tried to sneak them into Disneyland without paying for tickets.

"My brother thought it was a really good idea for us to go to Disneyland," she explained on The Late Show in 2009. "He put hairspray on the stamps of someone who came out, and then you put your hands together [to transfer the stamp to your hand] and then you go through the turnstile and we went through."

The siblings weren't there for long before getting caught, however. "Then there were these guys in normal outfits that said, 'Come with us,' and we went into Disney Jail," she said.

Despite being disciplined, the Disney devotee has remained a fan of the brand through the years, seemingly channeling the Disney princesses on the red carpet and keeping a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt in her daily wardrobe rotation.

Make it work! The Disney-loving supermodel debuted a Disney Villains fashion capsule collection on Amazon in December 2020. Though the company's many villains might spook some, the Halloween queen told PEOPLE why she has an affinity for the creepy characters.

"I feel like these villains, they keep you at the edge of your seat and they're kind of the nail-biter," she told PEOPLE of her inspiration for the line. "You're like, 'What's going to happen?' When you see these amazing villains and how they are created and how they look, it's so easy to come up with a line."
