    Has anyone actually seen John Lasseter at Disneyland?

    I know Al Lutz briefly mentions in his articles that Lasseter stops by for visists but has anyone here actually seen him at the park?

    Not I.......
    But if I did I think I'd be more excited to see him than any actor or musician.
    (Unless it's Jessica Alba, Salma Hayek, Leanne Tweeden, etc. etc.)

    Nope, but I've seen his body-double aka PEZZ_Lightyear many a time.

    My friend Greg (his name here is bonofiededge) saw him in the World of Disney store a while ago. He went up to him and said, "You're John Lassetter!". He has a pic of him and Lassetter as his avatar.

    Re: Has anyone actually seen John Lasseter at Disneyland?

    I've seen him both here and at Walt Disney World.

    A couple of years ago I dined up at Club 33 one night and he was having dinner with Michael Eisner and Tommy Smothers (of the comedy duo The Smothers Brothers).

    During an opportune moment I struck up a conversation with John about wine, and he revealed he owns about 50 acres of vineyards up in Glen Ellen, California...but actually made his Lasseter labeled wines at his good friend Tommy's winery that he owns with his brother Dick Smothers. John said someday he hoped to be able to have his own winery up there. I don't think there's anything financially that's stopping him now!

    We talked wines for about 10 minutes and then I cut him loose to return to his table.

    I'm sure if John Lasseter hits the park, it's on a weekday because it's "work-related". And less crowded, easier to get to the bottom of things.

    Wow, I really don't know if I would even be able to recognize him!

    Does anyone have a pic of him? How does he look like?
    Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

    It's already happening. The 2003 Alexander Valley Red Wine blend harvest of the Lasseter Family Winery was released last year. I have two bottles, with a concept drawing of Lightning and Mater on the front label.

    Re: Has anyone actually seen John Lasseter at Disneyland?

    Walt used to stroll Disneyland dressed as a typical tourist. Lassiter doesn't strike me as being someone who couldn't pull the same thing off. Who'd recognize this guy in a Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses?

    Well, other then Disney Geeks and Mice Chatters, of course.

    Perhaps I wasn't clear. There a huge difference between growing grapes and producing wine...and having your own physical winery facility.

    John has long produced that label and wine...but they actually processed the grapes and produced and bottled the wine at the Smothers Brothers' winery (Remick Ridge label). John just had vineyards...no winery. So he was borrowing (or paying for) "time and facilities" at Smothers and sending his grapes over to work on them there.

    This is not an uncommon way for smaller growers to produce wines BTW.

    As of July last year, John still did not have an actual physical winery plant, even though his label indicates "winery." He actually just owned and ran the vineyards.

    Or are you saying you've heard he actually built his winery and is now running a complete vine-to-bottle operation on his own?

    Re: Has anyone actually seen John Lasseter at Disneyland?

    I saw John Lasseter, Ed Grier and tony baxter going through the exit of Rockin' space mountain in early January. I quickly grabbed my aunt who had a camera and waited for them to come out! After several discouraging minutes and a breakdown I saw their On Ride Photo. John was smiling like a kid in a candy store. I quickly snapped the photo and as got photos of all of them. John was very personal and happy to take the photo he started to talk about the Exciting submarines and how he used to work here and all that.
