Themed Entertainment Association publishes the 2015 theme park attendance estimates

May 25, 2016 in "The Walt Disney Company"

The Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) and AECOM has today published the 2015 Theme Index: Global Attractions Attendance Report.

This industry report provides a guide to theme park attendance worldwide, giving estimates of attendance change year on year. Disney and most other large theme parks do not provide any official attendance figures, so this report represents the only published estimate of attendance.
