Tokyo, Japan Disneyland

Tokyo Disneyland has suffered damage in parts of its campus in the 8.9 magnitude quake that rocked Japan early Friday.

According to, the 69,000 guests in the park at the time of the quake were stranded due to transportation being affected in the aftermath. The guests were quickly evacuated to safe areas and given supplies.

Photos of the park’s destruction appeared on Twitter of guests camped out in the common areas of the park. Twitter user Rezaikram tweeted that guests were provided with “disposable heaters, plastic bags, and rain coats.”

The blog also reports that liquefaction, or large puddles, have destroyed the Tokyo Disneyland parking lot. The DisneySea expansion area has also affected by liquefaction.

Disney parks entertainment executive Steve Davison reported that the guests at the Tokyo Disneyland Resort are safe after an initial evacuation and have been allowed back into their hotel.

The main impact of the earthquake and tsunami was 200 miles north of the resort. The theme park will remain closed through the weekend. No injuries have been reported.
