Disney Legend and Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Advisor Tony Baxter, and designer, sculptor and puppeteer Terri Hardin will be making an appearance at Walt Disney’s Carolwood Barn on Sunday, April 20, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Tony is a 47 year veteran of The Walt Disney Company. He began his career working on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland Park, working his way up to Senior Vice President of Creative Development at Walt Disney Imagineering, before retiring last year. During his tenure, Tony worked on the design and creation of some of the most notable attractions in the Disney Parks, and had a large hand in the overall concept of Disneyland Paris. It was through Tony’s work on Disneyland Paris that he met Terri Hardin.

Terri is a renowned designer, puppeteer and sculptor in and out of Walt Disney Imagineering. She worked on the popular Disney Parks attractions Captain EO, Jim Henson’s Muppet*Vision 3D, and Disneyland Paris’ Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, among others. Terri worked directly with Tony throughout the Big Thunder Paris project. Noticing her skill and work ethic, Tony gave her the job of creating Disneyland Paris’ Dragon’s Lair attraction.

Terri will be signing copies of her autobiography, Tales from Terri: A Disney Sculptor’s Life.  Tony will be signing copies of Poster Art of the Disney Parks, for which he wrote the forewordImagineers Vanessa Hunt and Danny Handke, authors of the book, will also be on hand to sign.  The barn’s souvenir shop will have both Tales from Terri: A Disney Sculptor’s Life and Poster Art of the Disney Parks for sale the day of the event for your convenience.

The third Sunday in each month, Walt Disney’s Barn Museum, the original Santa Fe & Disneyland Combine Coach, and Ollie Johnston’s Victorian Train Depot, are open for public visiting from 11 am to 3 pm. Informative volunteer Barn Crew members are on hand to describe the history and contents.  Often, Disney veterans and Legends drop by for chats and autographs.
