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.
