Disney Parks Investments Remain Below Pre-Pandemic Levels

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Blog Mickey for the original post...

The Walt Disney Company has released its fiscal 2022 earnings report, and while the company is making more revenue in raw numbers than it did before the COVID-19 pandemic, investments in its theme parks remain below 2018 levels and much lower than that if you exclude spending on their newest cruise ship.

In fiscal 2022, Disney Parks recorded $3.44 billion on capital expenditures. How does this stack up? Here’s a look at recent spending in the past decade:

  • 2021: $2.27 billion
  • 2020: $2.90 billion
  • 2019: $4.14 billion
  • 2018: $3.88 billion
  • 2017: $3.19 billion
  • 2016: $4.22 billion
  • 2015: $3.60 billion
  • 2014: $2.69 billion
  • 2013: $2.11 billion
  • 2012: $2.88 billion
  • 2011: $2.72 billion
  • 2010: $1.53 billion

That $3.44 billion figure is up more than $1.1 billion over 2021 spending, but Disney says that a significant portion of that spending was on the “cruise ship fleet expansion”. We hope to learn more about Disney Parks spending in an earnings call that just started.
