The Season Pass Podcast returns to the Baxter residence for another deep conversation on Themed Entertainment with Disney Legend and Imagineering Genius, Tony Baxter. Tony discusses the back story of many great Disney Park attractions (Phantom Manor, Haunted Mansion, New Orleans Square, the Disney Studios Parks, Fantasy Faire, etc.), but also dives deep into Universal Studios Florida’s amazing Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley. Tony also explains why it’s important to design an attraction for the 20th ride–not the first, the arithmetic to use when creating a “Magical Experience,” and dissects the decision of converting Maelstrom into Frozen. Get ready for a very educational and thought-provoking journey into the design of immersive theme parks, attractions, and environments.
