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:

ABC debuted two new shows tonight. One a game show and one, well, something else. Both have their roots in Japanese game shows and booth feature American contestants trying their hands at something new and different.

“Wipeout” is the most like a game show and features obstacle course based elimination rounds and new contestants everyweek. While “I survived a Japanese Gameshow” is more realty television with a repeating cast that competes each week for rewards and to avoid elimination. $50,000 is at stake for Wipeout, but a cool quarter million dollars is the reward for surviving the Japanese game show experience.

Up first… Wipeout
