Disney Legend and Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Advisor Tony Baxter, and designer, sculptor and puppeteer Terri Hardin will be making an appearance at Walt Disney’s Carolwood Barn.
Tony Baxter began his time with The Walt Disney Company working on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland and worked his way up to Senior Vice President of Creative Development at Walt Disney Imagineering. He worked on the design of some of the most famous attractions in the Disney Parks and had much influence in the overall concept of Disneyland Paris. He retired last year after 47 years with the Disney company.
Tony met Terri Hardin while working on Dinseyland Paris. Terri is a renowned puppeteer, sculpter and designer within Walt Disney Imagineering. She has worked on attractions such ast Captain EO, Muppet Vision 3D, and directly with Tony on Disneyland Paris’ Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Her skill and work ethic were so steadfast, Tony gave her the job of creating Disneyland Paris’ Dragon’s Lair attraction.
Terri will be signing copies of her autobiography, Tales from Terri: A Disney Sculptor’s Life. Tony will be signing copies of Poster Art of the Disney Parks, for which he wrote the foreword. The barn’s souvenier shops will have copies of both for sale on the day of the event. Imagineers Vanessa Hunt and Danny Handke, authors of the book, will also be on hand to sign.
