[VIDEO] Disneyland Paris: From Concept to Reality with Tony Baxter

Monday, 16th April 2012 at 12:37
Disneyland Paris 20th Anniversary Launch Weekend

Videopolis Theatre in Discoveryland saw a packed house at 10.45am on 12th April 2012, as the Disneyland Paris Ambassadors welcomed legendary Imagineer Tony Baxter to the stage for a one hour discussion of its history, creation and progress “from concept to reality”. From broader points about the challenges his team faced in bringing a Disney park to Europe, he went on to discuss his favourite hidden details in the park, anecdotes of meeting Walt Disney, and even shares his very own version of the contested Phantom Manor storyline…

Couldn’t make it there yourself? We’re proud to present our own, exclusive video of the entire event for you now, above — including the special appearance of all the worldwide Disney Ambassadors from every resort to pose questions to Tony himself.

  • The day after the presentation, I went to the restaurant mentioned at 0:46:24 and took a picture of it. XD

    It was a great presentation. It was great that he still wanted to finish Discoveryland and bring Vincent Price back.

    During the autograph session at the end, the ambassadors were also having lunch together.

  • This was great, I really loved the part where he talked about meeting Walt himself.

    And talking about hidden stuff, does anyone know a good site where you can find some hidden stuff?

    I allready know about hiddendlrp and seen pretty much everything on that so does anyone know a site simmiliar with different or more stuff on it?
