Oriental Land Co., Ltd., which operates Tokyo Disney Resort, posted a deficit of 6 billion yen for the three months up to last month due to the continued shortening of business hours and restrictions on the number of visitors due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection.

The three-month financial results announced by Oriental Land Co., Ltd. up to last month showed sales of 49.8 billion yen for the entire group, which is more than eight times higher than the same period of the previous year when the theme park was temporarily closed. ..

However, Urayasu City, Chiba Prefecture, where the theme parks are located, has become a target area for "priority measures such as prevention of spread," shortening business hours and limiting the number of visitors per day to 5,000 or less at each park. The final loss was 6 billion yen.

This is the second consecutive year that the final profit and loss will be in the red for the first quarter.

On the other hand, the forecast for business results up to March next year is still "undecided" because it is difficult to predict at this point.

The company has been raising holiday ticket prices since March, and will strive to improve profitability through the introduction of new events and related products.
