cirque du soliel


New video has just been uploaded that shows recent footage of damage to the neighborhood near Tokyo Disney Resort. This car is driving right by the resort, see the Cirque Du Soliel building go by on the right early in the clip. Then look to the side of the road and cracks in the road. Sometimes the ground has shifted by a couple of feet. That whole area will need new paving, new power lines, new street lights, bus stops, etc.

This, of course, is nothing compared to what the Tsunami ravaged sections of Japan have experienced. But it does shed some light on how soon we might expect any of the Tokyo Disney hotels or Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea to reopen.

There’s still quite a lot of clean up to do.

Here’s video of a local news station interviewing a Tokyo Disney performer upon her return to the US. There’s also a few shots of the damage done to her apartment and neighorhood:

Below the jump is new video from inside Tokyo Disney Sea taken just before and after the quake:

Whenever people tell me there is nothing to do at Downtown Disney I ask if they’ve taken in a showing of La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil? If you haven’t, you’re missing one of the unique opportunities of your visit. They’ve also updated two of the acts recently, so a repeat visit will have some new material.

If you live near Disney World then you should take advantage of the return of the special $50 ticket price for Florida residents. This offer is available for performances August 17 – October 23 on category 2 seats (limit 6).
