Tokyo Disneyland ready to reopen

Rolling power cuts will limit operations of park

TOKYO — Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, shuttered after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami devastated northeastern Japan, are due to reopen in April.

Park operator Oriental Land has not set the exact date because it is still wrestling with the problem of rolling power cuts, as Japan struggles to get its stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear reactors back online.

When all Disney facilities are operating normally, they use enough electricity in one day to supply 57,000 households.

Options include shortening operating hours, keeping some attractions closed or, most drastically, opening only one park.

Oriental Land has finished repairing the quake-damaged parking lot, and all the facilities, including the Disney hotels, are good to go.
