    Yes, as you said, Universal increased too. Deluxe hotel room prices are up considerably since last year. I know, I stay there 20 plus nights a year. Food & Bev prices pretty much across the board. Ticket prices have matched Disney for the most part.

    Except Disney has way more hotels, and more food (and festivals).... Universal is still adding rooms

    Numbers are relative. Universal is a much smaller theme park chain also.

    Except none of that matters when factoring if a company is up, flat or down for a quarter. Sometimes being bigger can hurt you. And the numbers are compared to UORs numbers from the year before, a company that has grown in said time.

    Isn't that why percentages are more interesting than numbers? :idea: Or should I say "sheer" numbers.

    We were talking in percentages. That’s what @Mad Dog’s original post was about.

    So if i'm reading the results correctly this isn't as bad for Universal as it might appear.
    • Disney is getting a 27% profit margin from their parks which is very healthy.
    • Universal is getting a 40% profit margin from it's parks which is incredible.
    Yes Disney increased sales and profit and Universal stayed flat but Universal appears to still have a much more profitable business compared to revenue.

    So the takeaway here is both are doing very well and there's no impending doom coming upon Disney or Universal. Imagine that.

    Exactly!

    and the investment cash will keep flowing into the parks which can only be a win for us.

    Reverting back to the bad old days with limited investment, and poor new attractions that are perhaps due to that limited investment.

    Could this be another Thanks Beijing hashtag moment - resources are being diverted elsewhere.
