Oriental Land Company, the operators of the Tokyo Disney Resort has released the following press release following the Tohoku Pacific Earthquake.
Effects as of March 18 of the Tohoku Pacific Earthquake
Oriental Land Co., Ltd. would first like to send our heartfelt condolences to all those affected by the Tohoku Pacific Earthquake on 11 March 2011. From our heart, we pray for the health and well-being of everyone, and hope for the earliest possible recovery of the affected areas.
We would also like to notify the effects of the earthquake on our company, summarized as follows:
Casualties and Damages
As previously notified on 14 March there have been no injuries or casualties reported among our guests, Cast Members and other employees.
Tokyo Disneyland / Tokyo DisneySea Parks
There was no major damage to buildings and facilities, nor was there any ground liquefaction inside the Parks except for a portion of the parking area. Following full inspections, the safety of all buildings and facilities inside the Parks has been confirmed and the Parks are in condition for re-opening.
However, due to the lack of stable electricity supply and other concerns, we have determined to further postpone the opening of the Parks. The reopening of the Parks will be duly announced when the date has been determined.
Liquefaction has only occurred in a portion of the flat parking areas. Recovery efforts are swiftly underway.
There was no major damage to the buildings or facilities. Also, work on confirming the safety of the hotels has been completed. The date of re-opening is not yet determined, as the hotels are scheduled to reopen at the same time as the Parks.
There was no major damage to the buildings or facilities. Also, work on confirming the safety of Ikspiari has been completed. The date of re-opening is not yet determined.
Disney Resort Line
There was no major damage to the buildings or facilities. Although there is no impediment to the monorail operations, the date of resuming operations will be determined depending on the status of the other facilities within Tokyo Disney Resort.
Cirque du Soleil Theatre Tokyo
Although there was no major damage to the building or facilities, inspection of the equipment is still ongoing. The date of re-opening is not yet determined.
Effects on our Business Results
Effects from this earthquake to our buildings and facilities were negligible. We are currently reviewing the ramifications to our business results due to the closure of the Parks and other facilities.
