William “Sully” Sullivan started at the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland about a week and a half after the park opened and stayed with the company for the next 39 and a half years, finally retiring as the vice-president of The Magic Kingdom.

Sully sits down with Nathan to chat about giving Walt private tours through the Jungle Cruise, keeping Small World operating at the 1964 World’s Fair, and helping open the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disneyland Paris.

Sully Sullivan talks about all this and more in his book “From Jungle Cruise Skipper to Disney Legend” from Theme Park Press – available for purchase through Amazon.
