Disney boosts visitors at Tokyo sites

Parks post combined record attendance

TOKYO — Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea posted a combined record attendance of 25.82 million for fiscal 2006, up 4.2% on the previous year, park operator Oriental Land announced on Monday.

Visitor numbers got a boost from special events and promotions celebrating the fifth anniversary of Tokyo DisneySea, as well as from the new Tower of Terror. Warm winter temperatures also encouraged visitors to make the trek to the parks in the Tokyo suburb of Urayasu.

Tokyo Disneyland, which opened in April 1983, and Tokyo DisneySea, which launched in September 2001, have received a total of 411 million visitors.

Visitor numbers to Universal Studios Japan rose 4.6% year on year to 8.7 million in 2006, exceeding its visitor target of 8.3 million. The Osaka park was boosted by a new attraction, Hollywood Dream — The Ride, as well as the weather.
