HONG KONG-- Hong Kong Disneyland announced Monday that it earned a profit of HK$109 million ($14.06 million) in the fiscal year ending Sept 29, 2012, the first time the park recorded a profit since its opening in 2005.

The park generated record revenues of HK$42.72 billion, up 18 percent from the previous fiscal year.

Last year, a record 6.73 million people visited the park, up 13 percent from the previous year. Chinese mainland and overseas tourists accounted for two-thirds of the total attendance.

Hong Kong Disneyland Resort's Managing Director Andrew Kam said the result was encouraging, adding that the attendance, hotel occupancy and guest spending levels continued to smash records.

Meanwhile, another local theme park Hong Kong Ocean Park told the media that it attracted over 300,000 visitors during the Chinese New Year (from Feb 10 to 17), up 20 percent compared with the same period last year.
