Judson Green, new Walt Disney Co. theme park chief and sometime jazz pianist, has always shown a knack for improvisation. He fought to expand Disney's theme parks during recessions, when Disneyland Paris was hemorrhaging money in its early days and when pundits predicted that California earthquakes, riots and Florida crime sprees would scare tourists away from Disney's theme parks. Green's instincts paid off. Operating profit for Disney's parks and resorts rose 13% to $1.

Disneyland visitors will soon be able to embark on a journey past falling dinnerware, exploding fireworks and the menacing maw of a steam shovel--all in about four minutes. It's all part of Roger Rabbit's Car-Toon Spin, a new ride that was previewed Thursday at the Anaheim theme park and is scheduled to open officially on Jan. 26. The attraction was giving test rides Thursday as part of the celebration of Mickey Mouse's 65th birthday.
