  • Parks and resorts profit rose 51 percent to $375 million - ABC News - 2/6/2006

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Walt Disney Co. <DIS.N> on Monday posted a 7 percent rise in first-quarter profit as revenue from the new Hong Kong Disneyland theme park and the 50th Anniversary promotion of the original Disneyland made up for movie studio softness.
    .................................................. ................................................
    "From the standpoint of earnings, (Disney is) clearly outperforming," Rich Greenfield of Pali Research said. "The main place was in theme parks where clearly the 50th anniversary, and the revenues and profits coming in from Asia made a difference in the quarter."
    .................................................. ................................................
    Parks and resorts profit rose 51 percent to $375 million as Hong Kong Disneyland posted its first full quarter of operations and the Disneyland 50th anniversary promotion spurred business at U.S. parks.

      I kinda think that WDW and DL had a bit more to do with Disney's bottom line than the little half-baked park they built in HK.

        If you look carefully at their past financial statements, it tells something.

        Decreasing operating margin at Parks and Resorts from 22.64%(2001) to 13% (2005).

        fiscal year:2001 operating margin 22.64%
        fiscal year:2002 operating margin 18.08 %
        fiscal year:2003 operating margin 14.92%
        fiscal year:2004 operating margin 14.49%
        fiscal year:2005 operating margin 13%

        A very obvious and substantial decrease in Operating Margin during 2001-2005.

        It is the royalty and management fee from international parks & Resorts and the share of net profit from those operations which helps them in the bottom line.

        that's why they need to expand overseas (exclude the case in Euro Disney).
