The event was a great way for East Tennessee to enjoy some fun and excitement.

"You know I just love coming to do stuff like this because I get to interact with them and meet them, and then they tell me what they like from the show, and then their favorite episodes, and it's really cool cause um to get that kind of feedback and to see that I'm making a whole bunch of these kids just happy throughout the day and it's really nice," said Irigoyen.

Another Disney star is coming to Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies!

Blake Michael, who plays Tyler in "Dog with a Blog" is scheduled for next Saturday from 2:00 - 5:00 PM.
