Win a trip for 4 to the opening of Cars Land and a private Jungle Cruise tour skippered by John Lasseter!

Think about it. You cruised on the Disneyland Jungle cruise sometime between late 1977 through spring 1978 and you snapped a picture of your skipper….well, if you did and your skipper was John Lasseter, you can win a trip for four to the Grand Opening of Cars Land at Disney California Adventure!  When I interviewed John earlier this year he actually mentioned that he was a skipper and that his time spent in the park was some of the best memories he has.   In fact, he recommended it to others, ” I got a job at Disneyland as a ride operator on the Jungle Cruise.  I started at a sweeper in Tomorrow Land, 1977 and then I transferred into the ride operator on Jungle Cruise and it was the most fun job I’ve ever had.  And I do want to recommend to all your children and your readers that jobs at Disneyland (are) one of the great things your kids can do. ”

So, there’s a search on to find a verifiable picture of Skipper John and the first person to submit one wins a trip for four PLUS a personal journey on the Jungle Cruise with John Lasseter, chief creative officer at Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios and principal creative advisor for Walt Disney Imagineering, as your skipper.  I’ve met John and this could be some serious fun.

Sadly, my first trip to Disneyland was long after John worked there, but if you’ve got photos hidden away, get them out and start checking!
