Disney’s theme parks are now enjoying a great ride, following the problems caused by the pandemic.


In its third quarter, revenue rose from US$4.3bn to $7.4bn and operating income increased by a massive $1.8bn to $2.2bn.

It was down to guests upping their spend and simply more people visiting the group’s parks, the company said.

CFO Christine McCarthy commented that the results on many occasions during the quarter were higher than those from 2019.

The pandemic had hit the company’s parks hard last year. In the comparative quarter of 2021, the Disneyland Resort was only open for 65 days and Disney World was operating at reduced capacity.

Disneyland Paris was actually ahead of the figures in the third quarter of 2019.
