Annual Disney Park Attendance Statistics and Charts | Disney Parks Resources

In the past century, Disney has solidified itself as the undisputed leader in theme park attendance. Disney’s various theme parks are annually ranked among the top-visited parks in the world with the Magic Kingdom and Disneyland occupying the top two spots. On the eve of a massive expansion at both Disney World and Disneyland with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, I thought it would be fun to take a look at just how many people actually visit Disney parks each year. Here is a quick rundown of what I was able to find for annual Disney park attendance.

For many more Disney statistics (close to 600 of them), please visit this Disney facts post.

Please note that some of these Disney parks attendance figures are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All stats are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. No stat listed should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.

About the Author

Craig Smith
I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments: 1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?) I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it. Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets. Other sites include DMR and VideoGamesStats.com.
