I ran into Tony Baxter tonight and ended up having the most amazing conversation for 45 mins about the old Carnation Gardens from one Former CM to another to all sorts of amazing stuff we went back and forth about in regards to Journey into imagination and Epcot that I would loved to have have audio about but what a special moment for me

So Tony was by himself and I have talked to him a lot over the years but never anything like tonight....I was going over to Fantasy Fair after dinner at Napa and of course I recognized him and just went up and started talking and said...Its strange that when I remember coming here as a kid watching my grandparents dance this was a hamburger stand...he goes THAT WAS MY FIRST JOB AT THE PARKS EVER, then it just took off and was an unreal ride...He was telling me how cool it was that he saw Louie Armstrong play while he was working there and how Benny Goodman would come and play but at that time he had no idea how cool it really was...Then we started talking about a lot of the old people and how they were the ones who kept this place around and how big swing got again in the mid 90s and how they hope to still keep it there but he said he does not think that will happen. Then it was cool when we were talking about some of the back stage struggles in that area since I knew what was right behind and I found some of that to be the most interesting thing about the whole situation since I knew what he was talking about and he knew I did also but the couple people who were standing around waiting for a pic and autograph from him were clueless about...Then I went into my fav topic that I have never talked to him about which was Journey Into Imagination and old school Epcot,,,I talked a little about my childhood and love for Figment and the attraction and how its gone so far away from what it was supposed to be and then it was like I got zapped into a story by Tony all about Figment after I was telling him as a little kid the first thing I wanted to do was meet Figment and The Dreamfinder and then how when I grew up I always thought of the figures of Epcot were Figment and Epcot and not Mickey and Minnie........Then he told me a story about a family who came to the parks in the mid 80s and it was a make a wish child and when he met them it was the first time he had smiled in a few years...Seeing what happened they were so happy that Kodak who sponsored the attraction use to fly figment and the dreamfinder around to meet this kid until he passed away a few years later....Well this family was such a big deal to Disney and Kodak that they made them part of the pre show that was for kodak that had a song called Making Memories done by the Sherman brothers and Tony told me that everytime he would go into the attraction and the song and video would come on he would get choked up like no other....We talked for a long time and it was not like somebody asking questions it was just natural and we had an awesome conversation between two Disney fans and I will never forget it.. - Dave  11843.0 #2 10:58PM
Oh how cool that must have been. I would love to sit down with him and just listen. Did you at least ask him if he was enjoying his retirement. Man what a treat to have been able to have a conversation like that with a true legend. - pirate5150  10.4 #9208 12:19AM

I barely understood 1/12 th of what you were talking about, but after hanging out last night I can picture this conversation in my head perfectly clear! I'm sure you were both in heaven! - MissMolly  1230.0 #112 11:19PM

That's awesome!! So did he mention anything about bringing the CPG dancing back? - caramiapoohAKAface  3256.4 #32 9:55PM
They talked about that tonight. They said its something being discussed. The original flooring is still there and the seating isn't permanent so space can easily be made. That's all they said at the discussion. - RickChavez  3276.1 #31 9:59PM
Yayyy for caramia, at least the original floor is still there!! I hope it comes back soon!!:) - secretagentangel  1304.7 #103 10:04PM
its not happening and you know why? They get bigger crowds outside the parks because they don't have to pay for it and those are the only people at this point who would dance there... - Dave   11843.0 #2 11:03PM
That's a great point Dave - RickChavez  3276.1 #31 11:05PM

Awesome post Dave...although it made me feel like one of the old people you talked about!

unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. Automated crowd prediction calendars are worthless--the UNFORECAST is where it's at!

unForecast for week of December 22, 2014:

Park Hours: DL: 8am-12am (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday-Sunday) 8am-11pm (Wednesday); DCA: 8am-11pm (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday-Sunday), 8am-10pm (Wednesday).

Reminder to check out the new "Freeze the Night", apart of Frozen Fun in Hollywood Land every night. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be busy this week, Monday and Tuesday, with CIs in the 80s in Disneyland Park and in the 70s in DCA. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are hard to predict, crowd wise, as it is sometimes busy and sometimes crowded. Then expect it to be busy the rest of the weekend. 

Merry Christmas!  - BaseballMickey_CM Dec 22, 2014 12:07PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  351.6 #595 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6734 11:53PM

If you're there today, you can make HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 'S POTC meetup at 6 pm. Usually they will gather across from the ride entrance. Perhaps along the fence area of the Riverbelle Terrace. Look for a fairly large group of fun-loving people. Many will have their mouse ears on. Your hostess, Ms Churro, will be leading the way. Just dive right in and ask, 'excuse me. Is this the Mousewait meetup?'  You won't be sorry!  Disneygrl35 - MeridaFan  3439.8 #28 2:09PM
Thanks so much for the info MeridaFan!!!😊😊 - Disneygrl35  2.1 #55991 2:19PM
