Tokyo Disney may dip below 30m visitors in fiscal 2017

Congestion issues take toll on attendance, even as foreign guests soar

Tokyo Disney Resort's theme parks are struggling to alleviate long wait times and congestion.

TOKYO -- Apparently nobody goes to Tokyo Disney Resort anymore -- because it's too crowded.

Oriental Land, the operator of twin theme parks Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea at the site, will set a goal of around 29.5 million visitors for fiscal 2017. The figure would represent a third consecutive annual decline, and the first attendance total below 30 million in five years.
