Investing.com – Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) reported Wednesday fiscal first quarter results that beat analysts’ forecasts as its parks division more than doubled revenue and its streaming business added more subscribers than expected.
Walt Disney shares gained 8.8% in after-hours trade following the report.

Disney’s parks, experiences and products reported revenue that more than doubled to $7.2. billion from the same period last year. That offset by a decrease in its consumer products business, which was weighed down by the closure of a number of Disney-branded retail stores in North America and Europe in the second half of fiscal year 2021.
