Kabul, Afghanistan - Disneyland officials, in a financial press release revealed earlier today, reported the continuing decline in revenues at their Kabul Family Resort location. The financial brief cited reduced visitor counts, lack of available hospitality related resources and increasing mortar attacks on rides and parking lot trams as the primary variables responsible for location's near 13% drop in Q3. Adding in their additional prepared remarks that, "High opium use among both the visitors to the park, as well as the park staff, had not helped profitability."

Stumbling financially since its opening in 2004, Disney's Middle Eastern family resort concept has failed to produce even a single, solitary profiting quarter. With repair and safety issues ever mounting and the global economy still stalled in recession, questions are abound among investors about Disney's ability to continue investing in this perceived money pit. In response to those doubts it appears that, at least for now, Disney's Board members are willing to ride things out.

Pointing to improving concession revenues as a light of optimism within the company's memo, Disney reported that, "Concessions within the park's newest themed entertainment venue, Bunkerland, were up almost 31%, and over 52% if medical supplies numbers were included." Also that, "Both Bunkerland and Poppies of the Caribbean had been gaining steadily more popularity among park visitors since CIA opium demands increased in Q1, 2011."

Despite their abysmal numbers for Disneyland Kabul so far, Disney financial insiders indicated within the news release that the corporation still fully intends to move forward on all its 2013 CapEx expansion goals for the property, including their new Hunger Games ride for children under 18 and also their newest environmentally friendly and LEED certified ride, Aquatic Kingdom, an ocean themed venue which will include a number of drinking fountains and over five tractor-shaped lawn sprinklers for park guests to frolick in.
