The Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) has released their 2012 Report on the ratings for the world’s theme parks.  The report shows park attendance for theme parks world wide, and shows changes in those numbers for the previous year.  As I’m sure you would assume, Disney Parks are rated high on this list.  The Magic Kingdom is yet again Number One!  Disneyland Number Two!  Here’s the rundown of the top ten most popular and profitable parks across the world:

1. Magic Kingdom 17,536,000  +2.3% change
2. Disneyland 15,963,000 -1.1% change
3. Tokyo Disneyland 14,847,000 +8.5% change
4. Tokyo Disney Sea 12,656,000 +8.5% change
5. Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris 11,200,000 +1.9%
6. Epcot 11,063,000 +2.2%
7. Disney’s Animal Kingdom 9,998,999 +2.2%
8. Disney’s Hollywood Studios 9,912,000 +2.2%
9. Universal Studios Japan 9,700,000 +14.1%
10. Islands of Adventure 7,981,000 +4%

Even with the economy not being so great, people are still vacationing at Disney Parks.  If you time it right, and take advantage of special offers, these vacations can be a pinch more affordable.  Disney is doing well, regardless.  In case you were wondering, Typhoon Lagoon topped the list for the worlds most visited water parks.  Blizzard Beach made the cut too!
