While only minor injuries have been reported the massive earthquake that rocked Japan has stranded thousands of guests at Tokyo Disneyland & DisneySea.
Park employees have been supplying guests with humanitarian aid including blankets, food, and water. There’s also a report that the parking lot has been liquefied due to water from the coastline mixing with the soil as Tokyo Disneyland & DisneySea are built on a landfill area.
Early on web sites were reporting that 69,000 guests were stranded or taking shelter at the park, but later reports have been smaller.
Japan is such a heavily connected country that eye witness images, videos, and tweets have been pouring out of the country via the Internet. Inside the Magic has posted images that have been uploaded to social media sites by Disneyland Tokyo park guests. I’ll add more details as the story develops further.
Here’s a video of guests experiencing the earthquake:
