Commenting on the results, Philippe Gas, Chief Executive Officer of Euro Disney S.A.S, said:

“In a year marked by the difficult economic context and challenging travel conditions, we achieved 15 million in attendance at our parks and 85% occupancy in our hotels, remaining Europe’s number one tourist destination. Resort revenues were stable versus the prior-year, as an increase in guest spending offset lower attendance and occupancy. Total revenues ended the year up 4%, reflecting increased real estate revenues from a property sale in Val d’Europe.

During our second semester, we launched Disney’s New Generation Festival and saw a marked improvement in both attendance and hotel occupancy, while growing guest spending. In August, we opened Toy Story Playland, with three new attractions in the Walt Disney Studios Park, bringing the magic of these popular Toy Story films to life. Iconic Disney-themed attractions and entertainment, together with great guest service delivered by our Cast Members, continue to create magical moments for our guests.

On September 14, we signed an important amendment to our existing partnership agreement with the State and other public parties, which outlines the future development of Disneyland Paris and the town of Val d’Europe. This amendment marks a significant milestone in the history of our company, and enhances our ability to further develop the Resort and surrounding area over the next twenty years.”
