Walt Disney Co. said the Zika virus isn’t hurting its theme-park business in Orlando, Florida, disputing concerns raised by an analyst.

The virus is having “no real impact on cancellations or future bookings,” a Disney spokeswoman said Thursday in an interview. The comments reiterated those of Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger, who said on an Aug. 9 earnings conference call that the virus wasn’t hurting business.
