The Year of a Million Dreams is finally coming to a close. I know lots of people are happy to see this particular marketing campaign ending, but I'm not one of them. From the imagination-capturing title to the ever-present possibility of winning a prize, I've found the whole idea a pretty fun gimmick. Sure, I never actually won one of the random prizes myself, but I've enjoyed seeing other people win their dream ears or riding the carousel with Mary Poppins.
Of course, it would also be hard to be bitter about not winning one of the random prizes after being named one of the winners of the Disney Dream Jobs, a tie-in competition within the Year of a Million Dreams campaign.
But that wasn't the only time The Year of a Million Dreams granted me a nice surprise. If it weren't for that campaign, there wouldn't have been a group of cast members called The Dream Squad tasked to dispense all those million dreams.
And if there hadn't been a Dream Squad, I might not have found myself - half a year away from the Dream Job event and on the opposite side of the country,surprised with a Dream Job sequel of sorts. It's a story I've been meaning to get around to for a while, but haven't shared with worldfamousjunglecruise.com's readers until now: Skipper Brodie's Christmas Sequel Surprise.
