Disney was expecting it to make around $100 million but they certainly overshot those expectations. It also got a super high score on the film review site Rotten Tomatoes, which gave it a 95% out of 100%.
People love it:

The previous opening week box office record holder was Shrek the Third, making $121.6 million in 2007. Finding Dory has also almost doubled what Finding Nemo made during its opening weekend in 2003.
