In 3 months, the company increased its revenue to $17 billion, which is 45% higher than last year. Disney’s profit growth is due to the increase in attendance in the post-pandemic period. This is evidenced by the increase in theme park revenues, which exceeded $4.3 billion for the first time in the last 5 quarters. The entertainment company’s net profit exceeded $920 million.

“We remain optimistic about the growth of our parks business,” said Disney CEO Bob Chapek.

The Disney+ streaming service also exceeded the expectations of specialists, attracting about 116 million users in the second quarter of 2021. Analysts predicted no more than 114.5 million customers.
