Disney John of Jungle Contest!

Check out this awesome contest and you might win a trip for 4 to the opening of Cars Land and a private Jungle Cruise tour skippered by John Lasseter!

From late 1977 through spring 1978, John Lasseter, before becoming chief creative officer at Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios and principal creative advisor for Walt Disney Imagineering, worked at Disneyland, and was a skipper on the Jungle Cruise attraction. Recently, a search for a photo of John skippering the Jungle Cruise came up empty. Surely there must be a photo of Skipper John somewhere? To find one, we have created a contest. The first person to submit a verifiable photo of John as the skipper of the Jungle Cruise from 1977 will win a trip for 4 to the grand opening of Cars Land at Disney California Adventure in summer 2012, and a ride on the Jungle Cruise skippered by none other than John himself! What better way to turn a Disney memory of old into a Disney memory of today?

For details on how to submit, visit or the official Disney Pixar Facebook page.

Okay, when we were little and we lived in Los Angeles we would go to Disneyland at least a minimum of 5 times a year. It all depended on how many guests we had from Costa Rica that year. In 1977, I was about 13 and who knows maybe John Lasseter was my Jungle Cruise guide one of those times I was at Disney. I only wish I had photos because I would love to win this contest!

But maybe you or someone you knows has a picture! You better start digging up those old photos and videos and you could be a winner! Good Luck.
