VIDEO: Disney Legend Tony Baxter Honored with Window on Main Street, U.S.A., at Disneyland Park

posted on November 4th, 2013 by Erin Glover, Social Media Director, Disneyland Resort


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.

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

I will be forever grateful to Tony for the experience that was the original Journey Into Imagination. Thank you, Tony, for Dreamfinder & Figment, and most importantly for that “one little spark of inspiration that’s at the heart of all creation.”
