The Oriental Land Company's Tokyo Disney Resort today announced record attendance levels for the first six months of its fiscal year. For the period from April 1 through September 30, Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea welcomed a combined 15.735 million visitors, the resort reported today.
That's up 218,000 people, or 1.4 percent, over the same period last year. And it's the highest first-half attendance level in Tokyo Disney history.
The resort credited the opening of its installation of Soarin' — which is called Soaring: Fantastic Flight and includes a period Society of Explorers and Adventurers theme at Tokyo DisneySea — for helping to drive attendance in advance of the opening of a major expansion at Tokyo Disneyland next year. Tokyo Disney also aggressively programs seasonal festivals, including a months-long Disney Easter festival that OLC credited with helping boost attendance.Tweet
