        Excellent interview. Tony is a great guy, and always seems so genuinely interested in Disneyland and his attractions.

          That photo from the pre-moustache days was a bit frightening. I'm now thinking it was Tony who tossed out me and my friend from the Big Thunder construction site early one summer morning back in 1978. (She would flirt with the construction workers; I would do the Disney geek thing, checking the progress on the new ride.) I hope this doesn't mean I have to shred my DL Alumni Club membership! :blink:

          How was I to know that the tall skinny dude who looked like he just graduated from high school was the Imagineer in charge!!

          Hmm... that's probably why he grew the moustache.:lol:

              So do I ... .

              Seriously though this is a great interview with Tony Baxter. It is great to hear how it all came together and even more ... to see him in person for the first time.
