Net profit between April and June came in at $954m (£579m), down 26% on the $1.28bn the entertainment giant made in the same period last year. Revenues of $8.6bn were down 7% from the $9.2bn recorded a year ago. The results failed to meet analysts' expectations and Disney shares fell in after hours trading by 3%. Revenues at the Parks and Resorts division fell 9% to $2.8bn, while those at the Studio Entertainment division fell by 12% to $1.3bn. The company said visitors were spending less at its theme parks, both in the US and in Paris, France.
