Arguably, Tony Baxter is more beloved than any other person who has ever walked the halls of Walt Disney Imagineering. Hearing him speak about theme park design, his passion for the industry and the contributions he has made is like having a living reincarnation of Walt Disney himself inspiring everyone he meets. With that in mind, you can imagine how thrilled I was to hear that a new Tony Baxter book is available on Amazon just in time for Christmas.
Tony Baxter: First of the Second Generation of Walt Disney Imagineers by Tim O’Brien chronicles the journey Baxter took to get to Senior Vice President of Creative Development at Imagineering. Probably most inspiring about his story, Disneyland is in his blood. Baxter literally climbed the ladder from ice cream scooper and wound up designing some of the most iconic attractions in Disney history: Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Journey Into Imagination, The Indiana Jones Adventure and dozens more.
