Disney Legend and Imagineer Tony Baxter shares memories of seeing Star Wars at Graumann’s Chinese Theatre and remaining wide awake for a 5am opening night screening of The Empire Strikes Back. Baxter then recounts the trajectory of his long and impactful career designing Disney theme park attractions, including the pathway of collaboration and ingenuity that made the Star Wars adventure real with the original landmark Star Tours simulator ride in 1987.
Born in Los Angeles on February 1, 1947, Tony Baxter grew up in Orange County, California. It was the perfect time and place for this future Imagineer—he not only witnessed the birth of the theme park industry, but he also grew up alongside his beloved Disneyland. A Disney fan from an early age, Tony especially enjoyed his weekly visits with Walt courtesy of the Disneyland television program. The show whetted his appetite for Walt’s new wonderland rising from the Anaheim citrus groves. In his spare time he could be found building models and mocking up rides in his backyard.www.ObscureDisneyPodcast.com www.DisneyPatch.com www.Obscuri-D.com
