Disney World's revenue down as parks prepare for 100 Years event

Posted Friday, September 28, 2001 4:49 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Disney is set to launch its "100 Years of Magic" celebration in light of reduced revenue for the last quarter. Some analysts aren't convinced that the new celebration will significantly help.

I am a HUGE fan of Walt Disney and all that he accomplished.  So, I plan on visiting the celebration at least once.  I think a lot of other people might feel the same way I do as well.

I don't. It's not surprising that the revenue dropped. Disney isn't indestructible, and it is showing.

That reporter thinks they know it all...

Isn't that the case with most reporters? Hehe.

Seeing that the economy isn't booming and the events as of late, it doesn't take a genius to come up with that assumption.

People just don't want to risk that much money on a trip when unexpected expenses may come up since all of these job losses are occurring.

Local parks seem slower, but still doing ok in my area.

Is it me, or have there been a lot of redundant Disney news items lately? Just something to point out.

What do they expect?  The economy was down before the terrorist's attacks on September 11th.  People are either still in shock, afraid to fly, or feeling guilty about going and having a good time.  The 25th Birthday Celebration and the Millineum Celebration did not have to contend with those issues.  It is obvious that the reporter is not at all objective.  Oh, and THANK GOODNESS there will not be another replication of the sad figure of Cinderella's castle done up as a big pink birthday cake.  Give me the Sorcerer's Hat or the 2000 over Spaceship Earth anyday!!!
