Burbank, CA, USA /BUSINESS WIRE/–The Walt Disney Company today reported earnings for its first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2011. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter increased 18% to $0.80 from $0.68 in the prior-year quarter.
Parks and Resorts
Parks and Resorts revenues for the quarter increased 10% to $3.2 billion and segment operating income increased 18% to $553 million. Results for the quarter were driven by increases at the company’s domestic parks and resorts and Disney Cruise Line.
Higher operating income at the company’s domestic parks and resorts was driven by increased guest spending and attendance, partially offset by increased costs. Increased guest spending reflected higher average ticket prices and food and beverage spending. Higher costs reflected labor cost inflation across the company’s domestic parks and resorts, enhancement costs including investments in systems infrastructure and higher employee benefits costs at Walt Disney World Resort, and new guest offerings at Disneyland Resort including the expansion of Disney California Adventure. Higher operating income at Disney Cruise Line was due to a full period of operations of the Disney Dream which launched at the end of January 2011.
At the company’s international parks and resorts, higher operating income at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort was offset by lower results at Disneyland Paris. The increase at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort reflected increased guest spending, driven by higher average ticket prices, daily hotel room rates, and food, beverage and merchandise spending, and increased attendance. Lower operating income at Disneyland Paris was driven by labor cost inflation and the absence of real estate sales which occurred in the prior-year quarter, partially offset by increased attendance and guest spending. Higher guest spending at Disneyland Paris was driven by increased average daily hotel room rates.
