(CNN) - Disney theme park revenue was up eight percent during the second quarter.

That's an indicator that more Americans are taking, and spending more, on their vacations.

It's a similar story in Vegas where casinos run by MGM reported huge earnings.

Casino revenue at the Bellagio and other MGM properties is up six percent over the same period last year.

Other casinos report similar stories.

It's not all good news for parks and resorts, though.

Attendance at Six Flags is down this year.
