Everyone knows that we wouldn’t have the moments and memories of the most amazing attractions in the world if it wasn’t for Walt Disney Imagineering. There are only few Imagineers that will be epitomized as “Legend!” After all said and done, Tony Baxter will be looked to as one of the greatest minds and creators who ever walked the hallways of WDI.
