TOKYO -- Tokyo Disney Resort in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture, will resume operations Friday after being closed since the March 11 earthquake, the amusement park's operator Oriental Land Co. said.
But given the electricity shortage caused by power plant shutdowns in the wake of the March 11 disaster, Tokyo Disneyland will not operate after 6 p.m. for the time being.
Hotels around the amusement park will likely also return to full operations gradually, sources said.
The park operator said it has put off the reopening of Tokyo Disney Sea, a separate amusement park adjacent to Tokyo Disneyland, until late this month at the earliest.
According to a senior official at the company, sections of Tokyo Disneyland's carpark were damaged, but facilities inside the amusement park suffered no major damage.
