    Tony Baxter

    Disneyland Live and Mouseplanet are both reporting via Twitter that Tony Baxter is retiring, effective tomorrow! The sources are good but i havent seen any official announcement from Disney yet so it could just be a rumor. I hope

    The moment Tom Fitzgerald was put in charge of the DLR Portfolio, one could see this coming.

    There is supposed to be a press release about this tomorrow... apparently he's not retiring per se. Perhaps moving to a new position within the organization?

    I can see Kalogridis bringing Tony Baxter with him to WDW. Makes sense

    He's not completely leaving. His job is just changing a bit, I believe.

    "Retired, effective immediately."

    Hahahaha, oh yes, that sounds like a retirement to me.

    I'd suggest waiting for tomorrow's press release as from what I've been told, "retirement" isn't exactly a correct term for what is happening and there is the potential for good things to come from whatever happens.

    I like the sound of that. MK project maybe? Or, this is just a pipeline dream, JII overhaul?

    Not at all, they're the "Dueling Divas of Glendale."

    "Retirement" is not the full story. Wait for the press release; all will be made clear.
