Oriental Land takes 'Pirates of the Caribbean' ride to higher profit

Tokyo Disney operator enjoys solid first-quarter attendance

A DisneySea show themed around the "Pirates of the Caribbean" films has been popular among male customers.

TOKYO -- Oriental Land's group operating profit likely rose 10% on the year to about 25 billion yen ($224 million) for the April-June quarter as the Tokyo Disney Resort operator used seasonal events and new attractions to draw more visitors.

Sales are believed to have grown 3% to around 110 billion yen. Tokyo DisneySea's 15-year anniversary celebration last fiscal year raised the park's profile, apparently encouraging customers to return for multiple visits. Oriental Land kept ticket prices the same this year after three straight years of hikes through 2016.
