While Disney hasn’t disclosed its daily numbers for profit, revenue, and attendance, theme park experts estimate the 85-acre park draws an average of about 44,000 people a day. If we base it on this figure, 40,000 multiplied by the price of Disneyland's 1-Day Ticket ranging from $93 to $99 (depending on the age), their daily income just for the ticket sales alone is $3,960,000.
According to reports, after finishing strong in 2014, the Walt Disney Co. started off its first fiscal quarter of 2015 with more record-breaking results, with revenue up 9% to nearly $13.4 billion, while net income rose 19% to around $2.2 billion.
Nearly every division at Disney reported double-digit profit gains during the three-month period that ended Dec. 27, with the exception of the media networks group, which reported a 3% gain in operating income.
Given that the quarter’s timing came during the peak holiday shopping season, Disney’s consumer products arm saw the biggest gains, with sales surging 22% to $1.4 billion, which boosted profits by 46% to $626 million. Not surprisingly, “Frozen” merchandise generated much of the demand — the film’s merchandise drove double digit sales at Disney Stores in North America, Europe and Japan — followed by Disney Channel properties, Mickey and Minnie, Spider-Man and the Avengers.
