With Disney's earnings report just around the corner I would like to know if anyone has any predictions?

I will go out on a limb and say that Disney will once again beat the analysts' expectations based on;

1) Higher Theme Park revenues due to an upturn in traffic at the parks.
2) Increased Disney Store income as they finally seem to have gotten their act together in terms of stocking the shelves with enough merchandise and turning inventory quickly through more agressive markdowns.
3) More dollars from the Studio division based on the number films released this year and the increased traffic at the theaters.
4) Increased ad revenue at all media outlets as has already been reported by other media companies like The Tribune Company which has reported higher that expected ad sales.
5) Higher revenues from Disney's overseas operations can be expected as the second park in France is doing well, adding to this resort's overall performance, and Tokyo DisneySea is a great success. The weak dollar also means that this revenue will have a greater value when converted to dollars.

So needless to say I am looking for a very positive report.

What do you think?
