The Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) and AECOM has published the 2015 Theme Index: Global Attractions Attendance Report.
This industry report provides a guide to theme park attendance worldwide, giving approximations of attendance change year by 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 available.
The Magic Kingdom continues as the world’s most visited theme park, with just over 20.4 million guests visiting in 2015, a rise of 6% from 2014 – which is an increase from the 3% rise the prior year.
Epcot saw a increase of 3% with just under 11.8 million guests – which is an improvement on its 2% increase in the previous year.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios was up 5% seeing 10.8 million guests – up from the 2% increase the last year, as was Disney’s Animal Kingdom, which saw a boost of 5% up to 10.8 million guests.
Over at the water parks, both Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach saw 5% rises in attendance, with Typhoon Lagoon seeing nearly 2.3 million visits by guests, and Blizzard Beach just over 2.1 million.
