Top 20 North American Amusement/Theme Parks by Attendance (2014)

Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World

The Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) and AECOM publish the TEA/AECOM 2014 Theme Index: Global Attractions Attendance Report, a study of attendance at major theme parks, amusement parks, waterparks and museums worldwide.

Disney parks worldwide occupy 9 of the first 10 places of the world rankings. Ranking 1 thru 4 are Disney's Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland, Tokyo Disney Sea. Only Universal Studios Japan – in 5th place – interrupts Disney's capture of all 10 top spots. Epcot, Disney's Animal Kingdom, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris and Disney's California Adventure follow at 6 thru 10. Total attendance for the top 25 worldwide theme parks grew 4.1% to 223.5 million visitors over 2013.

The market in North America showed the moderate and stable growth of a mature market. As a result of a better economy, both domestic and international tourism (particularly from Asia) grew in 2014. Theme parks are reinvestmenting in their properties giving a fresh look and feel as well as adding new, technologically advanced in-park attractions. They also gave their accommodations a make-over. Because of these factors, Disney, Universal, Six Flags, Cedar Fair and Merlin's park and resort revenues were up.
