Attendance off at Disney parks

The West Coast's Disneyland, at Anaheim, Calif., showed a 9 percent decline in admissions for January through March - its largest attendance loss in 10 years. Walt Diqney World in Orlando, Fla., came under the same kind of cloudy figures for spping, its executives reported, with a January-to-March attendance decline of 2 percent from the 1981 quarter. The park has been in a downtrend for the last nine quarters.
