    Disney provided the following highlights for the newly renamed “Experiences” segment of the company, which used to be referred to as “Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products”.

    Domestic Parks and Experiences
    The increase in operating income at our domestic parks and experiences was due to:

    • Growth at Disney Cruise Line resulting from increases in passenger cruise days and average ticket
    • An increase at Disney Vacation Club attributable to sales of The Villas at Disneyland Hotel in
      the current quarter
    • Lower results at our domestic parks and resorts, which reflected: A decrease at Walt Disney World
      Resort resulting from:
      ▪ Higher costs attributable to accelerated depreciation related to the closure of Star Wars:
      Galactic Starcruiser and inflation
      ▪ To a lesser extent, lower guest spending driven by a decrease in average daily hotel room rates
      Growth at Disneyland Resort due to:
      ▪ Higher attendance
      ▪ Increased guest spending primarily due to higher average ticket prices
      ▪ Higher costs due to inflation

    International Parks and Experiences
    Higher international parks and experiences’ operating results were due to:

    • An increase in operating results at Shanghai Disney Resort due to:
      – Guest spending growth attributable to an increase in average ticket prices
      – Higher volumes due to an increase in attendance
    • Higher operating income at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort attributable to:
      – Guest spending growth due to an increase in average ticket prices
      – Higher volumes resulting from increases in attendance and occupied room nights. Results
      reflected 81 days of operations in the current quarter compared to 65 days in the prior-year
