Sun on Big Thunder Mountain in the afternoon. I’ve been on all the different version around the world of this classic, but the one in Paris is the most beautiful in my opinion. I remember riding it when the park just opened in 92 and how overwhelmed I was by its details. And it is located on an island...😍 #disneylandparis #disney #bigthundermountain #tonybaxter #ride
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, 2016
day one-hundred-forty-three. a voyage, a train-ride, a jeep, and a log. 05.23.18. The week I developed all of these portraits, I also happened to be on a trip to Disneyland. While there, I was hoping to bump into a few of the people who inspired this project, including @mrcheezypop and @justinscarred. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be, but maybe next time! I have already shared my Justin Scarred portrait and can not wait to share my portrait of Max! Anyway, this portrait features Disney Imagineering Legend, Tony Baxter. I had to include him as he is such a big reason as to why I enjoy Disneyland so much! It is because of him that Fantasyland received an overhaul in 1983 and became the Bavarian style village we all know and love today. On top of that, you can thank this man for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage, and the instant classic - Indiana Jones Adventure. This man’s contributions to Imagineering are immense. Did I forget to mention Disneyland Paris? Yeah, that was him too. That is not to say that thousands did not make these dreams a reality. It took a lot of man power. This man’s incredible leadership allowed that work to come to fruition in such a magical way though. Because of him and the imagineers that came before and after him (more to come in the next post) I pursued interior design. Tony Baxter introduced me to the idea of multi-sensory, immersive, man-made environments. He has been a constant inspiration ever since. Thanks, Tony. #gratitude #positivity #selfimprovement #sketching #vancouver #vancouverartist #yvr #yvrartist #inkfeature #inklouvre #blackworknow #illustration_center #sketchbookmagazine #sketchbook #drawingthanks #disney #waltdisney #disneyland #bigthundermountain #fantasyland #splashmountain #indianajonesadventure #findingnemosubmarinevoyage #tonybaxter #disneylandparis #imagineer #imagineering
Some promotional art for the vintage #Disneyland #darkride , #AdventureThruInnerSpace , which closed on today's date in 1985. The #Tomorrowland attraction opened in 1967 using the revolutionary #omnimover ride system (years before the opening of the #HauntedMansion where it was even more memorably used). Learn more about how #Disney 's talented #Imagineers shrunk guests to the point that they were dwarfed by a snowflake in Heart and Darkness: Scary Adventures and the and the Evolution of Disney's Dark Rides (available worldwide on Amazon from Theme Park Press - link in bio).

A list of the Wanted Poster cameos (including only one BT reference) and two originals created in Kooky Trails for the villains. A couple may change over time with Aliases being arranged a bit differently. The reason for the cameos is to honor the forefathers who invented some of the best dark rides in the world. Plus, its made to have fun with. If you don’t have fun with your ride, it would be boring or just borderline generic. We’re aiming for a lot of fun with this ride and to ensure detail is key. That’s what truly makes a dark ride stand out... #kookytrails #darkride #rollycrump #BobGurr #MaryBlair #MarcDavis #BillTracy #TonyBaxter #BudHurlbut #CraftyCoyote #knottsbearytales #ThePrancidorPack #JackalVacher #LaffofTheDark

Just happened upon @disney artist @mulliganjimmy at #DisneyCaliforniaAdventure and he immortalized my favorite hat. Please join me in wishing this particular hat a happy retirement, she’s goin’ up on the wall! #figment #tonybaxter #jamescmulligan #imagination #onelittlespark #disneymagic #magicaroundeverycorner #nofilter
It happened on one of those zip-a-dee-doo-dah days, it’s hard to believe it’s almost been a decade since I first discovered my favourite attraction and thing ever, Splash Mountain. Never has anything ever had such an impact on me than this ride, it solidified my love for Disney and Imagineering. Even though it might not be looked after as much as I’d like, I still love both Magic Kingdom’s and Disneyland’s versions more than anything.🐰🦊🐻💦⛰
Throwback to that time when I met one of my heroes Tony Baxter - did I ever mention that?! What an absolute gent.

The first picture is the only one that I took in this Middle Eastern-inspired area of Adventureland at DLP 😩 The other photos are from @disneytouristblog showing the inside of the Agrabah Cafe, a Moroccan restaurant located around the corner from the first picture. Sadly, we didn’t eat here because they were closed by the time we got there (they’re open from 12-4!!), but It looks amazing 😍😍 If you are visiting the park and you want to go here, plan to go in the middle of the day and make reservations! We’ll definitely be going here the next time we go back 🤗 Also, don’t forget to walk through Le Passage Enchanté d'Aladdin because it’s miniature sets from Aladdin and need I say more?!? . . . #disneylandparis #agrabah #aladdin #adventureland #paris #disney #disneyphoto #disneyeats #disneygram #instadisney #disnerd #disneytravel #travel #disneyparks #disneymovies #disneytourist #disneyfan #disneyfun #disneylife #morroco #arabian #theming #tonybaxter

Thank you @comic_con !! I had the chance to meet my favorite Disney Imagineer Tony Baxter!! He is such a nice and kind person!! He is the main reason why Disneyland looks and feels today. He developed Big Thunder Mountain, at Epcot Journey to imagination, he updated Fantasyland, the Disney Gallery, he changed the entrance of pirates, he worked with George Lucas opening Star Tours and later he worked in the 3D update of that ride, he made the entire concept of Splash Mountain, he oversaw the entire process of Disneyland Paris, he was one of the main supervisors of Indiana Jones the ride, and many more great things!!. #tonybaxter #disneyimagineer #disneyparks #disneyfan #disney #disneyimagineering #sohappy
Tony Baxter stopped by the booth and was saying that our Kandor was one of his favorite things!!!

У кого-то эти граффити вызвали раздражение; кто-то воспринял их как настоящее искусство; а кто-то увидел в них возможность заработать. В частности, местному таксисту пришла в голову бизнес-идея: вырезать кусок стены, на которой была сделана работа, и продать его за максимально возможную цену.

Although the original idea for Thunder Mesa, a wild west version of #PiratesoftheCaribbean for #MagicKingdom in Florida, never came to be, a portion of the story still exists as one of the largest and most impressive comedy tableaux in any #Disney #themepark . The story goes that the town of Tumbleweed had all dried up. No more gold in the mine, no more water, and no more people. But an entrepreneurial snake oil salesman calling himself Cumulus Isobar comes to town with his makeshift rainmaking contraption to break the dry spell. Well, whether by science, magic, or dad-blamed coincidence, the rainmaker worked and flooded the whole town!! Poor old Cumulus finds himself needing to bail out his wagon. Check out the piggies who have never been happier, the laughing donkeys, the curious hens and rooster, and the old timer who finally gets a bath. The goat just wants to find a way out of all the chaos, wishing for a stick of dynamite to chew on while watching from his perch. The wild animals are just as wound up. Check out the peccaries, possums, and the bighorn sheep high on Big Thunder’s spires staying above the fray. Read the jokes on the signs and of course, there’s a dry goods store run by D. Hydrate & U. Whither. It all ends with a roadrunner telling his rattlesnake friend all about the commotion in town... or at least that’s what I’d tell my kids if they were still little. This impressive scene goes by way too fast when you ride the mine train. The best way to view it is via a relaxing ride aboard the #WaltDisneyWorld #railroad . Keep your eyes peeled, riders. There’s always more to see. #bigthundermountainrailroad #thundermesa #imagineering #spatialstorytelling #details #tumbleweed #frontierland #tonybaxter #marcdavis

Figment the dragon Have you heard of him ? Created by Tony Baxter and first seen in 1983. He is a small purple dragon sometimes with a yellow sweater and he is the mascot of the Imagination pavilion at the Epcot theme park at the Disney World resort. I have seen the pop vinyl for him and is quite expensive , has anyone got him ? Or has anyone seen him at Epcot ? #dragons #fantasy #dragon #figment #figmentthedragon #purpledragon #disneyworld #epcotthemepark #tonybaxter #1983 #holiday #imagination #disney #popvinyl

Here’s a photo from the late 1960s of guests taking the tram to the Ticket Booths From the Disneyland Parking Lot. This shot seems to be taken looking towards what is currently Disney California Adventure as you can see the Arena at the at the current Anaheim Convention Center in the background. Originally, the arena was home to the Anaheim Amigos of the American Basketball Association during the first ABA season, 1967–68. The franchise relocated to the Los Angeles Sports Arena and became the Los Angeles Stars immediately thereafter; the team eventually moved to Salt Lake City and became the Utah Stars, capturing the 1970–71 ABA Championship. The Stars' subsequent fan support in Utah set the foundation for the NBA's Utah Jazz. The San Diego Friars of WTT played some of their home matches in the arena between 1975 and 1977. In 1978, the Anaheim Oranges of WTT used the arena as their primary home venue. The arena was also home to the California Surf of the NASL for one indoor season (1979–80). The venue served as the site for wrestling at the 1984 Summer Olympics. The arena can now be seen from Pixar Pier. 🚀 🛰 🛸 • #vidcon #disneyland #disneyworld #ttcpeoplemover #monorail #transportation #rocketrods #anaheimconventioncenter #tanacon #waltdisneyworld #d23expojapan2018 #d23 #white #tomorrowland #ttapeoplemover #tesla #spacex #peoplemover #spacemountainmission2 #johnhench #tonybaxter #wdi #waltdisneyimagineering #tanamongeau #disneylegends #disneylegend #tomorrowland #blackandwhite #magickingdom #tomorrowlandtuesday
Big Thunder Mountain at Disneyland was one of the first rides designed by Tony Baxter with help from Claud Coats and influences from Mark Davis' concepts for Big Thunder Mesa in Walt Disney World! It was the first ride developed for Disneyland without any direct input from Walt Disney. Over $30,000 was spent on authentic props that decorate both versioins in Disneyland and Disney World! There's alot of gold on these mountains! . . . . . #Bigthundermountain #Disney #Disneyland #DisneyWorld #DisneyIG #WaltDisney #MarcDavis #TonyBaxter #ClaudCoats #JimKorkis #themepark #amusementpark #history #design #Trains #OldWest #Rollercoaster #Adventure #Mountains
Any figment fans out there?? Can anyone tell me how long this character roamed the parks as a walk around? This is from ❌April ❌correction March 2008.

A really spectacular night all around at the Academy. Gregg Sherman and @thetodaygroup did a phenomenal job producing this glittery valentine to all things Sherman Brothers. A true labor of love, and the heart in it showed. (My son also got to meet some of his heroes. #michaelgiacchino #tonybaxter #paigeohara @brookiethewookie11 #bjnovak )
The ride that saved Euro Disney. 🙏🏻⭐️🗻 . Did you know Space Moutntain: De la Terre a la Lune essentially saved Euro Disney from calling it quits? Discovery Mountain (original title) was to be the home to multiple attractions and restaurants. However, after Euro Disney’s less than spectacular opening year, the park needed help, something familiar yet exciting to draw in the crowds. The catch? The park was sinking, it would need to be on a budget. 💸 Imagineer Tim Delaney scaled down his original masterpiece and created the Jules Verne inspired Space Mountain. This is the only Space Mountain in the world to feature inversions and a launch. My fav fact is that is was the first roller coaster to feature an original on board soundtrack. 🎶 While the Earth from the Moon has been refurbished with Hyperspace Mountain, the steampunk exterior still stands as a living memory of its original theming. Personally, I would have loved to ride the original and hear Steven Branson’s original score while riding, even though Hyperspace Mountain was still fun. The more you know kids! 😉 #spacemountain #triviatuesday #disneylandparis
Amazing when you have a client that sketches his own addition for a new theatre room, he also designed many of the rides we all enjoy at Disneyland. #realestate #architecture #design #disney #talent #tonybaxter
