World Briefs: Biz strong at Disney parks

Reliance Big to produce 'Electric City'

Oriental Land, which manages Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, has reported a 5.3% uptick in combined admissions at the two parks for the first half of the fiscal year, from April to September.

The 12,954,000 visitors rep the second-best first-half total since Tokyo Disneyland opened for business in 1983.

Oriental Land attributed the good numbers to park-friendly weather during the period, as well as to popular new attractions, including the revival of “Captain EO” featuring Michael Jackson.
