11 Celebs You Didn't Know Worked At Walt Disney Parks

Everyone's got to start somewhere, why not the Magic Kingdom?

Disney

When Walt Disney created Disneyland, he intended that guests would step into the movies.

The walk way through the train station symbolises the entrance of the movie theatre. Guests walk the red carpet of Main Street and choose to enter a Western classic, an Adventure story or even journey into the World of Tomorrow.

Disney was so adamant that his guests would experience all the fun of the show that he even called Disneyland's staff "Cast Members". The whole park was his stage.

Over the years some of Disneyland's Cast Members have turned into real life film stars.

Let's examine some of the impressive alumni of celebrities who have graced the same streets as Mickey Mouse, including some Academy Award winners, world famous muscians and even US Presidents.

11. John Lasseter

The man behind all your favourite Pixar movies started his Disney career as a Jungle Cruise skipper.

John Lasseter worked on The Jungle Cruise from late 1977 to early 1978, years before he would eventually become the Chief Creative Officer for Disney animation.

Back in 2011, Disney ran a competition to find photographs of Skipper John as it turns out Lasseter had none of his own. No news if any were uncovered.
