Magic Kingdom Most Visited Theme Park, Disney Parks Attendance Up

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.
