Economy

Tokyo, Oct. 1 (Jiji Press)--The total number of visitors to Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea in April-September rose 1.4 pct year on year to 15,735,000, hitting a record high for the fiscal first half, Oriental Land Co. <4661>, the operator, said Tuesday.

The strong performance reflected this year's Golden Week holiday period with an unprecedented 10 consecutive days off and the introduction of Soaring: Fantastic Flight, a new indoor ride at Tokyo DisneySea, Oriental Land said.

Shows and parades for Easter were also popular with visitors, the company said.
