McCarthy revealed that the company is planning for theme park investment based on Disney+ usage and data.

She also confirmed that Disney will continue to rely mainly on intellectual property when bringing new experiences to the theme parks, focusing on IP's that are popular with Disney+ viewers, thus confirming that Intellectual Property is the future of the Disney theme parks.

By identifying popular programming within Disney+, McCarthy says that the data will better inform the creatives and magineers when making decisions about theme parks.using the data to incorporate the most popular intellectual properties within the parks and fund their expansion appropriately.

Right now the data is showing that Bluey is the most watched TV show with Moana the most popular movie.
