Walt Disney World Epcot theme park attendance 2009-2021
The growth of Disney’s parks
Visiting amusement/theme parks is a popular leisure activity among both children and adults. This is especially true of Disney theme parks, with Disney's Magic Kingdom ranking first in terms of attendance for three consecutive years since 2019. Disneyland was founded as a single park by Walt Disney in Anaheim, California in 1955 - there has been huge growth since this inception and the company now operates 14 different theme parks around the world.
Disney’s main segments
There are four major business segments within The Walt Disney Company and the firm’s largest segment is its media network. However, Disney’s Parks, Experiences and Products segment was founded in 1971 and has since become the company’s second-largest revenue source. The company’s other two segments are its film studio, ‘Walt Disney Studios’, which the company is possibly the most recognized for, and ‘Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International’.
