Universal reports record summer attendance and 14.1% revenue increase

Comcast reported that Universal had record summer attendance during the 2015 third quarter. Revenue increased 14.1%. That's a substantial increase, especially considering they were going up against last summer's Diagon Alley opening numbers.

Yeah, Orlando tourism is booming. I've been to a couple business luncheons that are predicting Orlando tourism will level off in 2016 and pick up again in the fall/winter of 2017.

So a fifth WDW park is a good idea.

TH: I just received a survey today from Universal on that matter. I'm betting on an increase in 2016 though. Frozen for WDW and Kong/refurbed Hulk/Sapphire Falls along with a USA economy that's still coming back should keep the flames fanned. I was just there for two weeks in October and the parks,WDW & Universal, were pretty crowded for that time of year.
