Attendance at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim grew during the March quarter.

Burbank-based parent Walt Disney Co., which reported its quarterly results on Tuesday, doesn't break out attendance for each of its parks but did acknowledge the attendance gain in Anaheim.

The Disneyland Resort consists of the Disneyland and Disney California Adventure theme parks, three hotels and the Downtown Disney shopping and entertainment district. The resort’s two parks drew an estimated 24 million in visitors in 2012, according to the most recent data available from Themed Entertainment Association and AECOM.

The Disneyland Resort, along with the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, saw an increase in occupancy rates for its various hotels on a combined basis.

Walt Disney Co. reported overall revenue for the quarter up 10 percent to $11.6 billion. Net income rose 27% to $1.9 billion.

The company's shares were up less than 1% in afternoon trading Wednesday to a market value of $142.62 billion.
