Welcome to the jungle
I had no idea so many people dreamed about working at Disney World!
Kelli was nice enough to ask me in the comment section if I would send a Jungle Cruise Skipper picture from back in the day. I’m happy to oblige.
I’m also happy to tell you that this is my friend Jill in the Jungle Cruiser with me. She was the one who took me to my Disney interview. The week before, I had blown out my knee and I couldn’t drive. On the way to campus, I convinced Jill to interview too. She did and she landed the Jungle Cruise. I was originally cast in Fantasy Land and thought I would lose my mind if I asked one more family, “How many? Row two. How many? Row three. How many???!!!”
Jill worked her magic and I was in the jungle a matter of weeks after arriving in Fantasy
Thank you Jill. Even though you are terribly monochromatic in that uniform, you are still hot.
That’s a lot of beige! Thanks for the monochromatic awesomeness. It really is the happiest place on earth.
