Hurricane Ian Closures Cost Walt Disney World $65 Million Loss In Estimated Earnings

Today, The Walt Disney Company reported its Q4 earnings, and they fell short of expectations for profit and key revenue segments, including Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products.


This is despite the Disney Parks division of the company posting $7.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2022 and a whopping $28.7 billion in revenue for fiscal year 2022.


Disney said that Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products operating income margin (Domestic) for Q4 2022 was 15%.


However, in Q3 2022, the company reported a 30% operating income and Q2 saw 28%.


That’s a 50% difference from the last quarter.
