  • Trip Report Great Moments with Tony Baxter and Kim Irvine

    Monday night, I was treated, along with 19 other great friends and MiceChatters, to a rare, behind-the-scenes look at Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. This private event, one of the items up for bid at last September's D23 Expo Auction, was held inside the Opera House and Disney Gallery on Main Street, USA and included a wine reception, live music and the company of Imagineers Tony Baxter and Kim Irvine.

    Yes, you may be jealous.

    The evening began at the Disneyland Hotel, where some of us stayed during MiceChat's 5th Anniversary extravaganza. We gathered in the lobby, awaiting the arrival of a cast member who would escort us to the park.

    Our escort Barbara, who works many of Disneyland's special events from small wedding parties to large corporate functions, arrived just before 7:30, gave us all stars and stripes Mickey pins, and led us on the hike through Downtown Disney to Disneyland's main entrance. The park was getting ready to close at 8:00. How cool is it to be led into Disneyland when everyone else is leaving?

    Hey look! I've got the keys to Disneyland!


    If Barbara thinks she's getting these keys back, she's out of her freakin' mind.

    Coming up later today: pics from inside the reception, and a special surprise for Tony Baxter.

    Please wait . . .

                OK, how freakin' awesome is this?

                WAY awesome!!

                More please! I saw a few photos on facebook and was wondering "what Mr. Lincoln event was THAT?" Now I know and I say I clearly do not know the right people!

                Really...I'm looking forward to the rest of the TR, it really looks like everyone had a great time. I love to see MiceChatters having fun!

                Thanks for sharing.

                        That's funny about the keys! I hope you did keep them!

                        I did something similar to a Fantasmic Crowd Control guy who had been chatting with us for about an hour. He handed me his special flashlight for some dumb reason and I immediatly stuck it inside my jacket. But, seeing the look on his face, I handed it back to him...about 5 minutes later.

                        Hope you have more pictures to show us behind the scenes. I love stuff like that. (I would have handed the keys off to Russ and shown empty hands. "What keys?")

                            Great pictures and look forward to seeing more from the event. If you don't mind me asking, I'm curious how much the final bid for the experience was?
