Tokyo Disneyland / Tokyo DisneySea
Conditions of Buildings and Facilities (as of March 28)

Conditions of Buildings and Facilities at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea

There was no major damage to the buildings and facilities in Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea. There were some minor cracks on the grounds of some areas, but they were not of a nature that would jeopardize the safety of the Parks, and are currently being repaired. The Parks are ready for opening at any time.

There was some liquefaction in a portion of our flat parking area, but this has been repaired with sand and gravel, and is now ready for use.

There was no major damage to the buildings and facilities of the Disney Hotels, Ikspiari, Cirque du SoleilTheatre Tokyo, and Disney Resort Line. (Ikspiari re-opened on March 28.)

Measures at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea Against Liquefaction

Due to preventative measures against liquefaction that were already in place at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, there was no liquefaction at the Parks, with the exception of one portion of the flat parking area.

Liquefaction was prevented because at the time of construction of Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, the ground foundation of the entire area was fortified 10 to 15 meters in depth. This was accomplished using the Sand Compaction Pile technique, a method that drives columns of compacted sand into the ground at regular intervals, thereby increasing the density of the ground, which prevented liquefaction from occurring at the Parks.

The ground under the Disney Hotels, Ikspiari, Cirque du Soleil Theatre Tokyo, and Disney Resort Line was also strengthened using the same method.
