Give Kids The World Presents: Walt Disney Imagineer Tony Baxter. Born in Los Angeles on February 1, 1947, Tony Baxter grew up in Orange County, California. It was the perfect time and place for this future Imagineer—he not only witnessed the birth of the theme park industry, but he also grew up alongside his beloved Disneyland. A Disney fan from an early age, Tony especially enjoyed his weekly visits with Walt courtesy of the Disneyland television program.
Now is your opportunity to enjoy two nights with Disney Legend himself, Tony Baxter, as he relives the imagineering of Big Thunder Mountain in Disney World, and the second night he will discuss Epcot and Journey into Imagination with Figment. All ticket proceeds go to one of our favorites, the non-profit Give Kids the World Village.
