  • News 1st half results: Record attendance

    EURO DISNEY S.C.A.
    Fiscal Year 2009
    Reports First Half Results
    Six Months Ended March 31, 2009


    Commenting on the results, Philippe Gas, Chief Executive Officer of Euro Disney S.A.S, said:

    "We achieved record attendance for the first semester and strong occupancy levels in our hotels. Our sales initiatives are delivering results in an increasingly difficult economic environment.

    Our revenues decreased this semester which negatively impacted our results. This decrease was mainly due to a decline in real estate activities as well as a shift of the Easter vacation period into the second semester. Our Spanish and English markets declined significantly during the first semester, partially offset by a strong performance from our French market. We reacted to these changes by increasing our sales initiatives, while at the same time continuing to pursue disciplined cost management.

    We continue to improve the appeal of Disneyland Resort Paris. We recently launched Mickey's Magical Party across both parks, with four new interactive shows and a new attraction. We remain committed to continuing this development of new content and attractions inspired by Disney characters and stories."

    I am sure the cost of the Euro has not helped the UK market either. Lol.

    Thanks Zarniwoop. I am not surprised at increase in guests (the park seems rammed all the time now). Nor the drop in revenues - all the promotions and the high cost for rubbish quality souvenirs (and poor selection), will not help.

    But I cannot understand, if there are more guests, why are the reducing capacity by cutting two e-ticket shows (I know it is cost cutting, but the quality reductions and impact of longer lines could hurt the company in the medium term).
    Let's put the Walt back in Disney!

      It is to be expected with the state of the econemy especially the rate of the euro at the moment that revenue will be down because people are cutting costs whereever possible, their marketing is obiously working plus additions such as the Tower of Terror will definately be bringing in those people. I think overall the resort is doing great.

        I don't know, does the company look at medium term anymore. It is usually long term (new attractions) and short term (special promotions).

        Hopefully shows will return in a couple of years time.
