On Friday, Imagineer and Disney Legend Tony Baxter was honored with a window on Main Street, U.S.A., in Disneyland park. As Jon Storbeck told us in his post last week, Tony played a key role in the development of now-classic Disneyland Resort attractions, such as Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (1979), New Fantasyland (1983), Star Tours (1987), Splash Mountain (1989), and Indiana Jones Adventure (1995). Today we’ve got a special video recap of the dedication ceremony, featuring Tony along with Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs and Walt Disney Imagineering Chief Creative Executive Bruce Vaughn.

  • He certainly deserves it! Amazing man. 😀

  • I can’t imagine Disneyland without the attractions that Tony developed. Truly a well deserved honor.
