Has it felt a little less crowded at Tokyo Disney Resort? If so, it’s not just a feeling – the numbers back it up.
727,000 fewer guests visited Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea in the first half of 2015, according to stats published this week by the Oriental Land Company – the parks’ owner. Even so, 14,372,000 people passed through the turnstiles at the two parks – making it the third-biggest first six months of business in a year in the company’s history.
OLC says it expected some decline in attendance numbers as demand eased for people to get their first look at the Once Upon a Time nighttime show at Tokyo Disneyland. It also says a high number of rainy days and “extremely high” summer temperatures are also to blame for the nearly 5% decrease in attendance.
