When The Walt Disney Company announced yesterday that it will contribute $2 million to help victims of the Southern California fires restore burned areas, it was greeted with some sincere thanks and at least one perhaps cynical comment on the site called MiceChat.com: "Humm... I'd like to think that Disney is doing this out of the goodness of their hearts, but part of me thinks that the housing issue in Anaheim had something to do with this too. Make a good face for the people of the area and the council members against Disney suddenly look like bad guys."

It's been two years since New York-raised, ABC-TV veteran Robert Iger, 56, ultimately emerged from the merger with Disney to take over for Eisner. One of his legacies was the company's under-performing California Adventure theme park, which opened in 2001. The company recently announced they well rename it, and in any event will re-conceive it at a tab reported to be $1 billion, more than the original cost. The five-year overhaul is meant to accord with something more akin to founder Walt Disney's original vision.
