Disney still dominates Orlando theme park visitation

Richard Bilbao

Walt Disney World's reign at the top of the theme park food chain continues, thanks to the help of its Pandora — The World of Avatar land that opened in summer 2017 at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park. The study provides a peek at the potential attendance for theme parks like The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) and Universal Parks & Resorts that do not publicly share their annual attendance. The study shows that Disney's Orlando parks welcomed a total of 58.2 million visitors last year, up 4.3% from 55.8 million in 2017.
