Do you have a picture of John Lasseter from Disneyland Jungle Cruise in 1977?


OK, you’re wondering who on earth is John Lasseter and why am I asking if you have a photo of him. Funny thing is that I may have a photo of him but I’d have to travel to Texas to dig through my grandma’s cedar chest in the garage for the Disneyland photos from my first trip in the summer of 1977.

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.
