Theme parks revenues increased 7% to € 180.2 million from € 168.9 million in the prior-year period, primarily due to a 5% increase in attendance and a 1% increase in average spending per guest. The increase in attendance resulted from a higher number of guests visiting from France, partly offset by fewer guests visiting from the Netherlands.

Hotels and Disney Village® revenues increased 1% to € 128.2 million from € 126.8 million in the prior-year period due to a 2% increase in average spending per room, partly offset by a 1.1 percentage point decrease in hotel occupancy. The increase in average spending per room resulted from higher daily room rates, partly offset by lower spending on food and beverage and merchandise. The decrease in hotel occupancy resulted from 6,000 fewer room nights sold, including fewer guests visiting from the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, partly offset by more French guests staying overnight.Real estate development operating segment revenues decreased by € 9.4 million to € 0.3 million, compared to € 9.7 million in the prior-year period. This decrease is due to four transactions closed in the prior-year period while no transaction closed in the First Quarter.
