Eisner and Pressler already gave him the shaft with assigning Tony Baxter to TL'98, and then ignoring him when they were working on DCA. ALL TO Disneyland's detriment. And ever since then Tony Baxter was never given another substantial project. Heck Disneyland is STILL giving Tony Baxter the shaft, by not allowing Tony Baxter a chance to redeem himself with a new version of Tomorrowland.
I don't think I'm giving away any secrets when I tell you that 3 years ago Tony was very explicit when he was discussing how unhappy he was with state of Tomorrowland especially. He also told me that he and fellow Imagineers had an entirely new Tomorrowland planned out but that he was unable to get any kind of budget approved by the suits upstairs.
Tony has always been gracious to both, me and my family every time we have met. I have nothing but good things to say about hime, and he will be missed.
