Not so fast, Selenators.

Rumors that a romance is brewing between Selena Gomez and Austin Mahone are not true, E! News has learned.

A source says, "They're really good friends and have a lot of fun together."

The two were spotted spending some time with a group of friends at Disneyland Wednesday. Gomez sported a pair of Minnie Mouse ears for the festive occasion, and looked comfortable in a striped tank top and leggings. Mahone looked equally as laid-back in a T-shirt and black beanie.

"Selena was in the center of the group," an eyewitness exclusively told us. "You could tell she didn't really want to be seen. They had just gotten off of Space Mountain and were heading towards the FInding Nemo Submarine Voyage...They group was having fun, laughing and dancing a bit."

And though at one point Gomez pointed toward the Matterhorn while singling out Mahone for a smile, they seemed as if they were just friends, the witness recalled, adding that Gomez "looked just like she does in pictures, but even better."

Gomez and Mahone aren't the only stars to visit the Happiest Place on Earth lately. Dakota Fanning and Neil Patrick Harris were both spotted on separate outings enjoying their time in the theme park.

Gomez has been enjoying quality time with family and friends following her split with Justin Bieber in May.

She confirmed the news on Boston's Kiss 108 radio show that she and the "Boyfriend" singer had parted ways.

The host asked the 20-year-old singer-actress candidly, "So, sometimes you may see a boy walking down the street, and he says, ‘Let's grab an ice cream'—you're available?"

"Yep," Gomez replied.

"You're completely available in every way?" the host reiterated, and again, the Spring Breakers star answered, "Yep!"

"By the way," she added with a smile, "That would be awesome if someone asked if I wanted ice cream, because that would be cool."

However, just two days later the "Come & Get It" singer was spotted leaving the Biebs' Calabasas house and at a Los Angeles nightclub.

But early May appears to be the last time the youngsters were seen together.

Bieber has since gone back on the road for his Believe tour while Gomez has focused her attention on her new baby sister, Gracie Elliot.

Just last week, the brunette beauty cradled her first sibling in a Los Angeles park alongside her mother, Mandy Cornett, and stepfather Brian Teefey.

"Momma, Brian, and me are all so grateful for all your well wishes," the singer tweeted after the baby's arrival. "My lil sissy Gracie Elliot Teefey was born on June 12th. Luv you all XO."
