Parks division made money last quarter for Disney, but at what cost to the guests, and what other impact does that have on your experience? We discuss it tonight.
Each week, we cover the top stories in Disney Parks news and discuss the topics that are top of mind for the Disney community. Join us for another episode of ParksCenter!
This week, Disney released their Q2 earnings for the company as well as for the Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products division. While they are showing a profit and an increase in revenue, it looks like it’s thanks to increased pricing, extra paywalls such as Genie+, and more expenses for the average park guest. What’s next and what does this mean for the future of the parks and the company’s CEO?
Then, in parks news, we go around the hub and discuss many updates from Walt Disney World including more progress across EPCOT, hotel refurbishments announced, and more exciting this happening with Tron Lightcycle Run!
Also, several bizarre things were reported out of Florida parks this week including an illegal taxi service, a guest trying to bring meth into the park, a guest arrested stealing from strollers, and another fight on the ferry.
Finally, we take a peek at Avengers Campus in Paris as it comes closer to opening this summer.
