Tokyo Disney Resort® announced today that the total combined attendance at Tokyo Disneyland® Park and Tokyo DisneySea® Park during the first half of this fiscal year (April 1 to September 30, 2009) amounted to 12, 301, 000 persons. This amounts to 94.3% (746, 000 persons less) of the attendance figure for the same period last year, and is the third highest attendance in history for the first half of a fiscal year.
This favorable attendance can be attributed to the opening of Monsters, Inc. Ride & Go Seek!, the first new Tokyo Disneyland attraction in five years, in addition to the first ever Halloween event offered at Tokyo DisneySea Park.
As this year follows immediately after the record high attendance during the Tokyo Disney Resort 25th Anniversary, a decline in turnout was expected in the initial forecast for this fiscal year. Accordingly, there will be no change to the forecasted annual attendance of 25, 600, 000 persons for the two Parks.
