Japan Box Office: Disney Continues Record Run With 'Maleficent'

Higher Attendance and Guest Spending Boost Theme Parks Revenues Disney is the largest theme park operator in the world, attracting over 132 million visitors in 2013. The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Florida remains the most visited theme park in the world with 18.6 million visits in 2013, representing year-over-year growth of 6%. Disney's U.S. theme parks witnessed stable growth in attendance as well as per capita guest spending over the past few years. Per capita guest spending has increased from $95 in 2009 to an estimated $124 in 2013. This can be primarily attributed to higher ticket prices and a growth in domestic consumer spending. Similarly, attendance also went up from 70 million in 2009 to 75 million in 2013. This growth was driven by the improving U.S. economy and Disney's investment in new attractions within its resorts. The company is now developing Avatar Land based on the hit movie Avatar at the Animal Kingdom park.

Blair 11 Disney Enterprises, Inc. 'Maleficent' is helping to make 2014 a bumper year for Disney in Japan. Following the 16-week run of "Frozen," Disney has now topped the Japanese box office since mid-March, while the latest release from animation powerhouse Studio Ghibli opens in the third spot. TOKYO Disney spent its 19th cheap disney world packages straight week atop the Japanese box office, with Maleficent holding on to first place ahead of the latest Pokemon movie after a three-day weekend with a crowded release schedule. When Marnie Was There (Omoide no Marnie), the latest Studio Ghibli production, opened in a disappointing third despite being released at the start of school summer vacations, news that does not bode well for the anime powerhouse post- HayaoMiyazaki. Maleficent took another $4.7 million (480 million) on Saturday and Sunday, with another $2.4 million on Monday raising its total in Japan to $32 million (3.28 billion) after three weekends in theaters. The combined 19 weeks for Frozen and Maleficent is a record for Disney.
