I'm working my way through the commentaries on the RotK EE and have already heard the director's and authors' remarks. They mention several cameos in the third movie. Some of those have already been pointed out in the above posts, such as the fact that "Sam" and "Rosie" 's children are theirs, respectively, in real life. Also, Henry Mortensen (Viggo's son) plays in orc in the third film, the first one that Aragorn kills at the Pelennor Fields. And of course we all recognized the Jackson children in Gondor.

Royd Tolkien, J.R.R.'s grandson, plays a soldier of Gondor, the one giving out the spears at Osgiliath before the orcs attack from the river.

Howard Shore was cast for a cameo role in the drinking scene with the Rohirrim, but unfortunately what was filmed landed on the cutting room floor.

A number of crew members played extras and had fun doing it!
'Mercy!' cried Gandalf. 'If the giving of information is to be the cure of your inquisitiveness, I shall spend all the rest of my days in answering you. What more do you want to know?' 'The whole history of Middle-earth...'
