The Walt Disney Company reported its quarterly earnings yesterday for the first fiscal quarter of 2018, which ended December 30, 2017 and Parks and Resorts saw a significant revenue boost.
Compared to the first fiscal quarter of 2017, Parks and Resorts saw a 13% increase in revenue, bringing the number to $5.2 billion.
The report credits higher average ticket prices, food, beverage and merchandise spending and average daily hotel room rates as the main reason for the revenue bump in regards to domestic parks. It also mentions a boost to Disney Vacation Club due in part to the opening of Copper Creek Villas & Cabins.
