The increased turnout at Disneyland in California due to the opening of Cars Land earlier this year was strong enough to offset the decline Walt Disney World has experienced in attendance and generate a 3 % increase in domestic park attendance, said Jay Rasulo, the company's senior executive vice president and chief financial officer.
Disney Executives are confident that Walt Disney World park attendance will rebound. With the opening of the Magic Kingdom's new Fantasyland along with the Christmas Season, I think that Walt Disney World will definitely see an increase in their park attendance and their profits.
I think while Disney is trying to increase it's park attendance at Walt Disney World, they will continue to offer discounts for travel to the Walt Disney World Resort. However, I think that the discounts for travel to the Disneyland Resort will dry up due to it's increase in park attendance.
