Tokyo Disneyland operator's group net profit falls 46% in April-Sept.

TOKYO (Kyodo) — Tokyo Disneyland operator Oriental Land Co. said Friday its group net profit in the April to September period fell 46.0 percent from a year earlier to 8.68 billion yen due to the extended closure of its amusement park and other facilities following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.

Sales in the first half of the current fiscal year through March also declined 17.6 percent to 148.12 billion yen, Oriental Land said.

However, the number of visitors sharply recovered in the July-September quarter with the introduction of new attractions and events to mark the 10th anniversary of the Tokyo DisneySea theme park, it said.

For the whole fiscal year, the operator is expecting a record-high group net profit of 29.41 billion yen, up 28.4 percent from the previous year.
