Resort Attendance Up 7.1% to|
Record 27.2 Million in FY2008
April 1st, 2009
URAYASU, CHIBA - Tokyo Disney Resort announced that the total combined attendance at Tokyo Disneyland Park and Tokyo DisneySea Park for fiscal year 2008 (April 1, 2008 to March 31, 2009) achieved a record high figure of 27,221,000 persons, an increase of 7.1% or 1,797,000 persons from the previous year.
This record attendance figure for fiscal year 2008 resulted from the popularity of the yearlong Tokyo Disney Resort 25th Anniversary event held throughout Tokyo Disney Resort. The year was also marked by the grand opening of two new facilities at Tokyo Disney Resort, Tokyo Disneyland Hotel and Cirque du Soleil Theatre Tokyo, which further added to the total appeal of the Resort. The high attendance is also attributed to generally better weather conditions during the fiscal year.
For fiscal year 2009, attendance is projected to be approximately 25 to 26 million persons, or about the same as fiscal years 2006 and 2007, as this year follows immediately after the 25th anniversary celebration events end.
Since Tokyo Disneyland Park first opened in April 1983, a total of 463,660,000 persons have visited the two Parks.
