It’s a day of change on MiceChat. We hear that Imagineering super-legend, Tony Baxter, will be given a formal farewell this evening at Club 33. It’s planned as a roast and all sorts of heavy hitters will be on hand to take their final swing at a gentleman who has created so many iconic attractions over the years. We wish Tony a wonderful Disney afterlife, he will forever be right at the top of our list of favorite Imagineers. | We have three new articles for you on the site today. We begin with SeaWorld, which has just announced it’s 50th anniversary celebration for next year, it promises to make a big splash. Universal Orlando’s Transformers ride, while in previews, is essentially open for business. Eric Davis stops by the resort to show us how the new ride is performing. Meanwhile, Jeff and George are up to their usual antics in Communicore Weekly!  Kevin Yee will return next week.

    Thanks to Tony Baxter for making the world a better place. He has brought joy to millions of people through the fruits of his imagination.

    • Couldn’t agree more. Tony’s vision and constant struggle to preserve Disneyland’s core ideals will be GREATLY missed.
