March 12, 2011 – Tokyo Disney Parks Closes Due to Earthquake

On March 12, 2011, Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea Park closed to examine the damage caused by the Touhoku earthquake that occurred the day prior. 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.

The story of the attraction is that after Hightower’s disappearance, the New York City Preservation Society took over the restoration of the hotel, and now offered tours to the public, with terrifying results.
