Jungle Cruise Skippers Get Sent To Japan!


Being a former JC Skip this story is little more meaningful.  This year is the 25th anniversary of Tokyo Disneyland and one of the Supervisors wanted to bring Jungle All-Stars to Tokyo.  Think of it as the Coachella Bad Joke Summit.  Trust me, that is not an insult.  Every Skip knows that the jokes are bad, but it's up to them to make them funny.  How many times have you ever gone on that ride, excuse me... Attraction, and either had a great time or just wanted to jump out at the backside of water?  The Skipper makes or breaks your experience.  For the Disney Company to finally put the Skippers in the spotlight like this (with much love from  Chief Creative Officer of Pixar Studios and Walt Disney Animation Studios John Lasseter, who once served as a Jungle Cruise skipper).  For many years the Skips felt kinda like the beaten step kid of the park.  People loved you or hated you, but no matter how excellent your crew was, you were not the high thrill experience like Space Mtn. or Indiana Jones.  Take the jump to read the press release.

Hit it, Skip!
