Parks and resorts were the second-largest revenue source, generating a total of 16.97 billion U.S. dollars.

The third-largest revenue stream – with 9.44 billion U.S. dollars – was studio entertainment or Disney’s film business. Buena Vista, a subsidiary of the Walt Disney Company, generated over three billion U.S. dollars at the North American box office in 2016, an increase of almost 100 percent on 2012.
