TOPIC: I am a Disney fan, first and foremost, and through the years of creating WDW Radio and many of the other things I’ve done, I’ve had the pleasure, honor and opportunity to speak with and meet some of the people who’s work I admired and appreciated, and have impacted my love for Disney in an incredibly positive way. This week, I sit down once again with one of those incredible creatives – Disney Legend and Imagineer Tony Baxter. We chat about everything from Disney fandom, the recent resurgence of Disney animated films, Walt Disney, new attractions and Fantasyland, Journey Into Imagination (and Figment!), interactivity in the DIsney parks and what the future may hold.

CONTEST: New Walt Disney World Trivia Contest

    Western Rivers Expedition.
    Pirates of the Caribbean, Disneyland original version.

  2. Steve says:

    Wow what a great interview. I really hope he writes an autobiography one day. I’ve seen him in documentaries before, but this is the best sense I’ve ever gotten of him as a fan and creator. He’s absolutely brilliant.

  3. Wendy says:

    Love Pirates ! A ride is a must do more than once for our family when we go to WDW in Florida.

  4. Chuck Zitta says:

    Fantastic interview with Tony. Always so intriguing to listen to what it’s like on the “inside”. I can honestly say, that I don’t have a “favorite attraction” that Tony was involved in. Love them all for what they are and what it took, creatively, to bring each attraction from concept to reality. Not an easy task by any means. For the racing attraction, I’m thinking pod racing from Star Wars. Although Episode I was not up to “original trilogy standards”, pod racing would make for a pretty cool attraction. That’s my 2 cents.

    Thanks again for another spot-on Disney Legends interview, Lou!!!
