    Walt Disney World may be cashing in big on its $100 million Expedition Everest, riding the coaster's popularity to new attendance heights last year at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

    Animal Kingdom's attendance grew by 8.6 percent in 2006, the biggest increase of any major American theme park, giving the park 8.91 million visitors, according to unofficial estimates in a report released Wednesday by two tourism groups.

    Disney never reports attendance figures. These are all estimates. They are usually pretty close estimates.
    This report is usually released once a year and is well regarded in the industry.
