Roland Fargo Crump (better known as Rolly Crump) (born February 27, 1930 Alhambra, California) is an American animator, and imagineer for the Walt Disney Company. He was inducted as a Disney Legend in 2004.[1]

Hired by Disney studios in 1952, Crump served as an in-between artist and later, assistant animator, contributing to Peter Pan, Lady and the Tramp, One Hundred and One Dalmatians, Sleeping Beauty and others. He was an assistant to one of Walt Disney's "nine old men", Eric Larson.

In 1959, Crump joined show design at the former W.E.D. Enterprises (now Walt Disney Imagineering).[2]

Crump served as key designer on the Disney attractions featured at the 1964-65 New York World's Fair, including It's a Small World, for which he designed the Tower of the Four Winds marquee.

Crump is the designer of the Museum of the Weird, an unused attraction concept that might have been the ending to The Haunted Mansion.[3]
