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  12982.9 #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 #9911 12:19AM
Magical. Thanks for sharing. - PrincessDuckie  829.7 #205 12:30AM

HEY, your lil mini is the best, I love hanging out with her - Dave   12982.9 #2 10:59PM
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  1310.6 #117 11:19PM
done with you guys - Dave   12982.9 #2 11:55PM
That's great I'm glad you had a great convo and love this picture. - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #153 9:43PM

That's super cool! - arielchica  256.2 #1225 9:54PM
That's awesome!! So did he mention anything about bringing the CPG dancing back? - caramiapoohAKAface  3854.5 #31 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  3536.3 #37 9:59PM
Yayyy for caramia, at least the original floor is still there!! I hope it comes back soon!!:) - secretagentangel  1951.9 #75 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   12982.9 #2 11:03PM
That's a great point Dave - RickChavez  3536.3 #37 11:05PM
Dude that's waaaay cool! - Linzee  1095.3 #154 9:55PM

One of life's great conversations for you. Happy for you. - DisneyGrandma  865.4 #199 10:06PM

I can't wait to hear what he said about the history of CPG!!! - caramiapoohAKAface  3854.5 #31 10:10PM
Good idea, it's good to document while its still fresh. You'll want to remember that conversation. πŸ‘ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4399.0 #26 10:10PM

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

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of Aug 3, 2015
It's going to be HOT at Disneyland this week with weather in the high 80s. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 70s (approx 70% capacity), which is light for summer crowds. We expect it to be busier this week, however the hot weather does play a factor in crowd level as it tends to keep the locals away. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait app for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Aug 3, 2015 11:58AM



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  488.4 #404 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7121 11:53PM

I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  239.1 #1420 5:04PM
summer surely has been very busy!  - MarshaMouse  4704.3 #22 12:18AM
I was there this week, Tues, Wed.,Thur. Very hot and muggy. Long lines except single rider lines were great. Because we had 3 days we didn't mind waiting in line. It's so fun to people watch while you wait. We had a great time. Can't wait until next time to go back. - Popcorn  9.3 #10618 9:33AM

TOP 5 THINGS to do this week at the Disneyland Resort:

1. Watch the new "Paint the Night" parade 8:50 and 11pm nightly.

2. Watch the new "Disneyland Forever" Fireworks show at 9:30pm nightly.

3. See the new "World of Color" 9pm and 10:15pm nightly.

4. Try to find a "Made with Magic" wand or paintbrush which allow you to interact with select Disney experiences and merchandise. 

5. Look for the Word of the Day displayed outside of the theme park entrances (or in the MouseWait Lounge) and text the word between 7am and 10:59am Pacific to the shortcode listed on the sign. You must be at the Disneyland Resort to enter. If you win, you will be notified around 11am via text or phone. For more info go here
