Disney Parks Expansions and Additions Exceed $3 Billion

When Disney improves upon its parks, it improves. The company has surpassed the $3 billion mark in its park additions and expansions - a first in its history. To give an idea of where all that moolah is going, here is a breakdown of recent work at Disney parks worldwide:

  • Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World: The Fantasyland expansion, the largest in the park's four decade history, will top out around $425 million when the construction is done.
  • Disney California Adventure: This west coast park has underwent a five year expansion and renovation with a $1.1 billion price tag.
  • Hong Kong Disneyland: Over the ocean, this park has three additions planned to the tune of $486 million.
  • Aulani: This Hawaiian resort, the first Disney resort to open outside of a theme park, cost some $800 million to be built.
  • Disney Cruise Line: Even on the oceans, Disney has managed to expand by christening a new ship this year. The cost for the Disney Fantasy? Around $900 million.

In its last fiscal year, Disney Parks and Resorts has had a ten percent increase in its revenues.
