When the earthquake hit, 69,000 people were reportedly stranded at the parks, with most guests able to vacate by the next day. As park operational calendars were updated with closings through the 21st of March, crews were brought in to assess the damage. Flooding and caved pavements were spotted throughout the park, and were subsequently fixed before the parks eventually reopened on April 28, 2011; this was the longest closing of any Disney park.
