Two regional theme park chains pinned attendance declines on bad weather during the second quarter of 2023.
Universal Islands of Adventure beat three of Disney World's four theme parks in attendance in 2022.
Disney World did limit capacity in 2021 and no major U.S. park saw attendance return to pre-pandemic numbers.
Magic Kingdom was still the most-visited theme park in the world in 2020, but overall attendance at the largest parks worldwide dropped 67% due to COVID-19.
Disneyland attendance was flat in 2019, according to the latest TEA/AECOM Theme Index.
Attendance was up in the last three months at 2019 at Disney's U.S. parks, but its theme park division will take a hit after the coronavirus outbreak led the company to temporarily close its two Chinese resorts.
“On a consolidated basis, we expect to report an increase in attendance of approximately 2% for the fourth quarter of 2019 when compared to the prior year quarter,” SeaWorld CEO Serge Rivera wrote in a memo included in a SEC filing.
SeaWorld reported its first year-over-year drop in quarterly attendance since 2017, which the company blamed on Hurricane Dorian and bad weather.
