Does anyone have a picture of this set up? I remember it, what a different place Disneyland was in those days! I would love to go back and visit the park during different eras. That would be something else to check that out!
Then I would pitch the idea of an Indiana Jones themed ride called Temple of the Forbidden Sock.
To me, that would make much more sense and be better understood by Guests than what they're currently doing, especially given that some of the "randomness" is lost when Dream Squad Cast Members are being stalked. It would also allow Cast Members to be filtered out, essentially not allowing Cast Members to win anything, since a scanned Cast ID wouldn't trigger a sweepstakes entry. I've seen Cast Members with Dream Ears and Dream FastPasses who aren't supposed to get them per sweepstakes rules (and law, I believe).
Cast Members from my understanding are now alloweed to get the smaller prizes, but not the big ones such as the suite.
