Tokyo Disneyland is flush

Oriental Land Company, the holding company that operates Tokyo Disneyland, has had record profits this year. They've been putting out some way tasty TDL merch lately, including a bunch of die-cast Haunted Mansion zipper-pulls. I yearn to own the Mickey Mouse ear-wax-spoon that I got sniped out of on eBay three years ago.

Japanese Disney amusement park operator Oriental Land Co Ltd (4661) said on Tuesday it posted a 168.5 percent rise in group net profit last year and forecast a record for this year.

Oriental Land, which operates Tokyo Disneyland and the adjacent new and highly popular Tokyo DisneySea, posted a group net profit of 12.73 billion yen ($99.64 million) for the year ended on March 31 and forecast a profit of 16.90 billion yen in 2002/03.
