Disney Parks Investments Remain Below Pre-Pandemic Levels

The Walt Disney Company has released its fiscal 2022 earnings report, and while the company is making more revenue in raw numbers than it did before the COVID-19 pandemic, investments in its theme parks remain below 2018 levels and much lower than that if you exclude spending on their newest cruise ship.

In fiscal 2022, Disney Parks recorded $3.44 billion on capital expenditures. How does this stack up? Here’s a look at recent spending in the past decade:

  • 2021: $2.27 billion
  • 2020: $2.90 billion
  • 2019: $4.14 billion
  • 2018: $3.88 billion
  • 2017: $3.19 billion
  • 2016: $4.22 billion
  • 2015: $3.60 billion
  • 2014: $2.69 billion
  • 2013: $2.11 billion
  • 2012: $2.88 billion
  • 2011: $2.72 billion
  • 2010: $1.53 billion

That $3.44 billion figure is up more than $1.1 billion over 2021 spending, but Disney says that a significant portion of that spending was on the “cruise ship fleet expansion”. We hope to learn more about Disney Parks spending in an earnings call that just started.
