Huge Crowds Expected At Disney Theme Parks Over Holiday

Many people will be driving and flying into town for a holiday trip to the theme parks and Disney is ready for the rush. One of the first things tourists will do once they arrive in Orlando is visit a theme park, including the Magic Kingdom.Attendance is always high during the holiday season and, this year, Disney says is no different. According to a spokeswoman, Walt Disney World posted record revenues, record cash flow and record net earnings for the 2006 fiscal year.One of the reasons why the company is doing so well is because attendance at the Magic Kingdom and other Disney World theme parks continues to climb. In fact, attendance is up five percent compared to this time last year.Even though it's been unusually cold the past few days, park visitors Eyewitness News spoke with said there's no other place they'd rather be during the Thanksgiving holiday."We have came here for the last three years for Thanksgiving to spend it at the campground. We decided to come, it's the best time of the year, and bring our family for Thanksgiving," said holiday traveler Gina Schmidt."Normally, we go to a relative's house, but this week the kids are out of school for the whole week. They've never been to Disney, so we thought we would bring them to Disney," said holiday traveler Bryan Doubek.Industry insiders are expecting the large crowds at Disney to continue.Disney recently rolled out two new attractions based on the character in the movie Finding Nemo. Nemo: The Musical is at Animal Kingdom. The ride Nemo and Friends is at Epcot
