#News- Main Street USA window dedication to Disney Legend, Tony Baxter

On Friday, November 1, 2013, Disneyland will host a special ceremony honoring the work and legacy of Walt Disney Imagineer Tony Baxter. The ceremony will take place around 8:30am on Main Street USA.  For those wanting to witness this ceremony, this ceremony is only open to invited guests only, but there will be extremely limited amount of additional viewing area for day guests may be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Also, the Main Street Opera House, Disney Showcase, the Magic Shop and 20th Century Music will have a delayed open that day and will open to guests once the ceremony concludes.



As announced at the D23 Expo this past summer,  Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman, Tom Staggs surprised Mr. Baxter that he will recieve the highest honor any Disney Cast Member or Imagineer can recieve for his work on bringing to life many Disneyland attractions like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Star Tours, Splash Mountain, Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage, and Indiana Jones and the Forbidden Eye as well as the Fantasyland remodel in 1983, Journey into Imagination in Epcot, Disneyland Paris and so much more. This will be a special day as the Company honors a man who put so much work into projects that many people will enjoy from generations to come.

I'll be stoked if they bring Dreamfinder and Figment here for it or at least play "One Little Spark" during it. :) - CM_Shadowgamer   2374.1 #48 10-25-13 11:54PM Like  Reply

I'm sad he is retiring. I heard BTM will be his last as a CM? I can't wait to see the window!  - PixiePirateMaid   300.1 #819 10-25-13 11:58PM Like  Reply
He didn't really retire. He just stepped down to a part-time consultant for WDI - BaseballMickey_CM  6341.3 #12 10-26-13 10:38PM

Darn it! I would love to see this, but alas I have to work, AND I'm not an invited guest lol. So exciting for him.  - aprilinjune4   483.5 #381 10-26-13 8:31AM Like  Reply
We will be in the parks in that day.  I wonder if we will be able to witness this or the window. - adventuremickey   227.1 #1528 10-26-13 10:43PM Like  Reply
the window will be available for pics afterwards. Question is, where is it going to be? - BaseballMickey_CM  6341.3 #12 10-26-13 10:45PM
So awesome, wish I could go.  My friend is going to be there as a guest of Tony (he used to be her boss there) and I'm just hoping she'll get some great pics. - Sarafina   459.0 #408 10-28-13 11:47AM Like  Reply
