2009 Disney Attendance Estimates
The Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) has released their 2009 theme park attendance report, and I’ve updated my Historic WDW Attendance levels spreadsheet showing the attendance levels as far back as I could find. Surprisingly, to me at least, WDW’s attendance grew at almost 1% (.81 to be exact) compared to last year. The exact numbers are:
Magic Kingdom: 17.23 million 1% higher
Epcot: 10.99 .5%
Disney’s Hollywood Studios: 9.70 1%
Disney’s Animal Kingdom: 9.59 .5%
Overall: 47.51 million vs 47.13 for 2008
WDW water parks maintained steady numbers from 2008 with maybe just a slight bump from 2009:
Typhoon Lagoon: 2.05 million
Blizzard Beach: 1.89
While most North American theme parks declined in 2009 due to a weakened economy, Disney saw increases at all their parks. But the Disneyland resort in California was the biggest winner:
Disneyland: 15.9 million 8% higher
Disney’s California Adventure: 6.09 9.5% higher
Here’s to hoping that 2010 is equally as good for Disney. I’ll do what I can to help, but I would like to see some discounts for October, please.
