    I met Tony Baxter out at the park today...

    At about 3 PM, he was a very nice man. He even showed my daughter and I where he sold ice cream from back in 1965!

    I met him the day the walkthrough reopened. Oh my gosh, he is such a kind guy. He asked us what we thought of it and talked to us about how it was working on it. He's a great guy

    He is really nice, that was a starstruck moment for me.

    Re: I met Tony Baxter out at the park today...

    He is a very nice guy and knows what he's talking about. He is actually out there with the guests instead of locked up inside an office and to me that means a lot. To me it means that he likes seeing how people react to certain things first hand, seeing what people like, what people don't, seeing what they want. I believe that he is the type of person that Walt would want helping the park be as magical as it can be.

    "Bring back the People Mover!" they say. I'm sure there's been 100 ideas thrown around and he's seen all of them but for some reason we haven't seen any attempt to bring them back. There's likely an internal reason for them not to be, but I think if there was a way, he would make the magic happen to bring them back.

    When I met him it was during a DVD signing and they were trying to streamline it as much as possible so I got in a few words and a good thank you for all your hard work and that was it. I heard a few people actually did stop to talk to him for a good ten minutes and I've heard that others have had full conversations with him.

    Just because you haven't seen an attempt doesn't mean they haven't happened, Light Mouse.

    And yes, Tony does seem to genuinely care what guests think, which is a very good thing. That's not to say I completely agree with everything he's ever said, but on the whole, he's got his very creative head on straight, and his track record proves that. WDI needs more people like him.

    I want to meet him SO bad. I'm always looking around hoping I'll spot him somewhere. My dream is to meet him walking around, talk to him for awhile, ride Splash Mountain with him, and have him sign the picture taken on the drop. As Data said, WDI needs more people like Tony working for them.

    This is why I want to meet him. I haven't yet, but every encounter that I read about says pretty much the same thing. And he just seems like a nice guy who genuinely loves what he does and really does feel lucky to be doing it. Almost like a kid in a candy shop.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Re: I met Tony Baxter out at the park today...

    I was informed by the Indy crew I missed him by 10 minutes today. That in turn reminded me of how it took 10 minutes for a tram to arrive at the parking structure to get to the park...........

    I did a little hunting around Big Thunder, but no success.....

    Actually going to the parks and meeting people...Baxter is truly in the mold of Walt and Ouimet.
