TOKYO -- Tokyo Disneyland operator Oriental Land is likely to report its first profit decline in three years for the April-December period after a powerful typhoon last autumn forced a rare closure of the theme park, Nikkei has learned.

Group operating profit is seen falling to about 100 billion yen ($915 million), down 6% on the year, with increased labor costs also contributing to the decrease.
