Disney Keeps Tokyo Park Closed For Now
Company Makes Red Cross Donation
Tokyo Disneyland will remain closed at least through March 21 in the wake of the massive earthquake that struck Japan, Disney said Tuesday.
Disney said while the earthquake caused minimal damage to the resort itself, the damage to the local infrastructure is quite substantial.
Disney said it will make a decision about the operations at the resort on March 21.
In an e-mail to employees, Disney President and CEO Bob Iger said that the company was doing all it could for employees in Japan."We are ready and eager to help you take care of your families, so let your supervisor know what you need and we will put the resources of The Walt Disney Company to work for you," Iger wrote.
Disney has made a $2.5 million donation to the Red Cross to assist in earthquake recovery efforts.Disney has also set up a charitable giving program for all of its employees around the world. The company is matching employee contributions up to $1 million. Disney is Central Florida's largest employer.
