    WDS is the 9th most visited park in Europe with 2,612,000. Its second to only Disneyland Paris when it comes to attendance in France. What the report doesn't show is how many of the 12,688,000 million Guest that visited Disneyland Park also on the same day park hopped over to the Studios at some point in the day.

    Re: 2008 Theme Park Attendance

    So more people went to DLP last year than the two Florida Universals combined? And its almost on a par with DL and TDL? That is very impressive.
    Makes you wonder why they don't invest more money into maintaining the place.

    Exactly. So (as is mentioned every time these numbers are released,) the Studios' attendance is actually far higher.

    I don't know how park-hopping is tallied in Paris and elsewhere but...assuming that the same standard applies to all places...and IF only the first park of a park-hopper visit counted...then other parks in Orlando, Anaheim, and Tokyo would also rack up higher numbers if all parks in such a visit were counted.

    When you have 3 dozens of hotels and DVCs to maintain, where do you think the money is going? Certainly not the parks...me thinks.

    In regards to Parc Asterix..well at least we know Davewasbaloo has been there, so they must get some people visiting.
