Thanks to a daily average of 42,000 visitors, Global Village in Dubai is now one of the four most-visited attractions in the world.
Since opening in 1997, Global Village has attracted more than 90 million visitors. Which means it now competes with Disney around the world for the most-visited attraction in the world. Which is AMAZING. Obviously.
The numbers released by the Global Attractions Attendance Report break down the figures for average daily footfall
Disney’s Magic Kingdom – 57,000
Disneyland Anaheim – 49,000
Tokyo Disneyland – 49,000
Global Village – 42,000
Food, shopping, music and more
And let’s be honest. While we might not have Mickey’s ears or a Star Wars ride, Global Village does have a floating market, amazing street entertainment and 27 international pavilions. And that’s all for just AED15 entry.
Where else in the world can you pick up Yemen honey, Turkish ice cream and Uzbekistan’s national dish and then head on a Ferris wheel overlooking Dubai? Or jump on an abra, catch a show from a superstar and be part of a global community?
