It is every little girl’s dream to go to Disneyland or better yet, to have a birthday bash in Disneyland.
June has been the most eventful month for Kim Kardashian this year by far as she has received news earlier this month that she’s pregnant again with her second child. A few days ago, Kim rented out the Staples Centre in LA to throw Kanye West an insane NBA-themed birthday celebration.
That’s not all, the couple already has big plans for their daughter North West, who will turn 2 years old on 15th June.
The well-known couple intended to shut down Disneyland for North’s 2nd birthday, with only close friends and family invited to join the celebration. Yes, you read that right!
According to Forbes, Disneyland Paris pays its employees more than $784.9 million (RM 2926.26 million) a year while Disneyland in Anaheim pays approximately $2.15 million (RM 8.02 million) a day for its employees, plus the mechanical costs of operating all the rides, and that’s just to break even.
And business ain’t just about break even, they want profit – Disney made around $15 billion (RM 55.92 billion) in profit from its 11 theme parks during 2014.
Using very hypothetical math, if we spread that total evenly across all parks, the company draws around $3.74 million (RM 13.94 million) in profits from the Magic Kingdom every day. Sum it all up and it’s safe to assume that West will be forking out nearly $6 million (RM 22.36 million) for use of the park for just a one-day birthday celebration.
Berserk, ain’t it?
However, the plan didn’t seem to run smoothly to the extent they have called the plan off. It was reported that Disneyland’s Magic Kingdom park in Anaheim, California will resume the park’s operation hours as per usual on 15th June. In other words, North will not have Disneyland all to herself on her birthday.
In a comment sent to the NME, Disneyland explained that though private parties often take place inside its parks, it will be open to the public for “a regular business day” on 15th June.
The statement reads:
Disneyland will be open on June 15th as a regular business day. Although we don’t comment on private visits, private parties are not uncommon here. Please contact the Kardashian/West camp for any info on their plans.
In other news, North’s 1st birthday was not as big as the Disneyland plan, but she had a wonderful “Kidchella”-themed birthday party featuring a ferris wheel and a karaoke stage. Lucky lil girl!
