Tribute to Tony Baxter

Tony Baxter
A few weeks ago, one of the most beloved current Imagineers stepped into the world of retirement. There are speculations of why he did it so suddenly, and most Disney fan sites have written about it, so I figured my input at this point was moot. So instead, let's take a look back at his accomplishments in pictures! Because a picture is worth at least seventy five words. Maybe more. But definitely more than I want to write. So here we go! The attractions we love, brought to you by Tony Baxter:

Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage at Disneyland
Indiana Jones Adventure at Disneyland
Splash Mountain

Disneyland Paris. Yes, the whole park.

Star Tours

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

The original Journey Into Imagination

New Sleeping Beauty Castle Walk-through at Disneyland

The odds are that you absolutely love at least one of these attractions. That being the case, Tony Baxter has touched your life somehow. He will be missed at Imagineering and we wish him the best in his future endeavors.

  1. This is a great and simple tribute. I didn't realize he was behind some of these, especially DLP. He's DEFINITELY going to be missed.
