Spending rate decline
… Average spending per guest (in Euros, excluding VAT) declined from 46.3 in FY 08 to 44.2 in FY 09. According to the Company, “The reduction in average spending per guest reflects lower spending on admissions and merchandise. This lower spending was driven by additional promotional offers, which reduced average admission prices, and a higher proportion of our guests visiting from markets close to Paris. These guests generally spend less on merchandise.”
Hotel occupancy rate decline
… 87% hotel occupancy rate as compared to 91% hotel occupancy rate in FY 08 (Disneyland Paris operates 5, 800 hotel rooms in seven hotels)
