When you see the behavior above it all makes sense and comes ahead of the opening of Shanghai Disney Resort scheduled to open sometime next year. There are 330 million income qualified residents within a three hour travel radius of the park hopefully they will have the selfie-stick ban from the get go.

Its interesting to look at Disney's upcoming movie lineup. Their acquisitions of Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilms (Star Wars) have set them up to dominate the box office for the next few years. The recently released trailer for the upcoming Star Wars movie has already been viewed 52 million times. The releases above are a great leading indicator for the future success of their business. Disney haven't been specific but they will be opening Star Wars themed attractions at Disney. These new rides and the banning of selfie-sticks give families even more reasons to go to Disneyland.
