Would you get excited for a trophy?

Unique Florida wildflower
This flower was a big surprise at the swamps’s edge.


When this post goes live in 100 days, jungle jeff will be 10 days away from 30 ‘official’ years at Walt Disney World.

Original hire date of January 25, 1982, beginning as ‘jungle jeff’ in Adventureland.

Left when Summer ended and returned for good September 27, 1984.

So excited to reach this incredible milestone.

  1. Yep sure would. Would love to see pictures of all your awards over the years. I understand the awards mean different things to different people, but it makes me sad when I see them for sale on the internet. Kind of interesting the Disney awards have a monetary value unlike most other company awards. Think about that one.

  2. Donna, thank you. And yes the value is quite remarkable. A lesser known ripple effect of an exceptional brand.

    Photos from the 30 years may happen someday. 🙂

  3. Jeff, congratulations of course on this special milestone. Aside for the recognition internally, I can think of no better satisfaction for you other than thinking of all the millions of people you have touched through your speeches, training, etc, because I am one of them.
