Disney said it will nearly double its planned investment in the parks and cruises business.
The company said in a securities filing on Tuesday it will nearly double its planned investment to $60 billion over the course of 10 years.
While the company is grappling with the changing media and entertainment landscape – and trying to make its streaming business profitable while considering sales of its traditional TV networks – the theme parks, experiences and products division has been a bright spot.
