Euro Disney (Disneyland Paris) gross revenue 2011-2016
Disneyland Paris sinking number of visitors doesn’t seem to have a great impact on the overall revenue of the Disney Company
Apart from producing movies and selling merchandises, the Walt Disney Company also increases its turnover by opening and administering theme parks. Totaling 11 Disney resorts scattered through the world, the Walt Disney Company manages to administer its estate through subsidiary companies. In Europe, Disney counts with the Euro Disney S.C.A to operate its only Disney Park on the continent. In 2016 the Disney Park in Paris registered a total of 13.4 million visitors. In 2012, the park welcomed 16 million visitors and reported a revenue of 900 million euros. Even if this park hasn’t been faring particularly high in matters of visitors, the Disney segment responsible for the parks and resorts keeps on reporting ever-increasing annual revenues since 2009. In its latest report, the annual revenue for this segment amounted to 20.29 billion US dollars in 2018. Globally speaking, the conglomerate Walt Disney Company also registers a stable and positive development of its revenue: 14.92 billion US dollars for the second quarter of 2019.
The Shanghai Disneyland Park: A Tourist drain for other Disney Theme Parks?
The opening of new Disney resorts seems to attract more visitors by offering them the possibility of visiting a geographically closer park. This seems to be the case for Asian tourists, most notably Chinese. The Shanghai Disneyland resort inaugurated in 2016, has almost doubled its number of visitors in the short span of one year: According to an AECOM-led survey, the number of visitors jumped from 5.6 million in 2016 to 11 million in 2017.
