Ask The Disney Experts Discuss epcot attendance in the Ask The Experts forums; can anyone give me a rough estimate of visitors to epcot yearly?...
can anyone give me a rough estimate of visitors to epcot yearly?
^That doesn't sound quite right. When I worked at the Studios we celebrated the 1,000,000th guest in 1994 or 1995. That was 6 years after opening. Ten million guests in a single year is a little high. Also, Disney doesn't usually release individual attendance figures for their parks by policy, but may release overall figures.
EDIT: Nevermind, I see where your sources are...That is weird, I guess our event was just a staged event.

Here's a link to the report I found the numbers in: TEA/ERA Theme Park Attendance Report

When you are standing in line for Soarin' it sure seems like a million.

Yes, I didn't see that specific report but did a Google search and found several online. It still seems really odd. Although like Cinderella2 says when you are in line for a popular attraction it feels like all 10 million people are in line with you.

I didn't say it wasn't accurate, I said it was odd that they had a 1000000th guest celebration 6 years after the park opened. Maybe I misunderstood the number.
I know, I was just trying to put your "seems really odd" at ease. It seemed like a lot to me too until I did the math.
The estimated figures are pretty darn close CM Roo's breakdown is right on the money!
