    Did anyone go to TDL today?

    My friend on Facebook just reported that Tokyo Disneyland reopened today.

    How's it looking?

    How's it operating?

    Re: Did anyone go to TDL today?

    I'm here! Quick update ...

    Decent crowd one hour before gates opened.

    Gates opened five minutes early.

    More characters than usual at morning greeting.

    Guests go nuts.

    CMs from various parts of park line Main Street.

    Tears were shed by many, CMs and guests.

    Lots of suits from OLC and Disney greeted too.

    Most guests ran towards Easter parade route especially forecourt.

    Attractions mostly walk-on including Pooh, Buzz, Philharmagic and Monsters. Thunder being repaired and Pirates scheduled closure.

    New Cindy attraction nice. Walktrough with displays of scenes from film. Beautiful but nothing special.

    Easter parade better than last I feel. Twice today. No jubilation, dreamlights yet. Omd2 and MOM will alternate days.

    Other changes:

    New guest control CM costume.

    New cosmetic updates around park.

    New prime seating area in behind Partners. Reserved terrace seats for parade viewing for Vacation Package guests.

    VIDEO AND PHOTOS COMING THIS WEEKEND.

    Cannot wait to see the new costumes and hear the new song for Disney's Easter Wonderland Parade.

    Thanks for reporting!!!

    We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.

    You're welcome!

    Yes a lot of media. International as well such as BBC, CNN, Reuters, AP, Kyodo, etc.

    I was hanging out with the DeepDisney gang this morning, but now I'm with Micechat favorite, TDLFAN. ;-)

    And you too, I'll bet.

    Haven't had the chance to give you a hard time, but your profanity ladened video of the big one was a thing to remember for sure ('specially since we're friends and I know how you are, you California dog you, freaking out like all the rest of us were! ).

    Oh, and that reminds me...Joe, if you have any old videos of the Jammitors, Kitchen Beat, Tomorrowland Brass, Galactic Rangers, the Mad Hatters, or any other vids along those lines, now would be a neat time to send them to old friends.

    Interesting I wonder if the Cast who usually meet & greet at Tokyo DisneySea have been asked to join the crew over at Tokyo Disneyland for now. Or maybe it was a one off to mark the importance of the day. Especially with the global media arriving at the park.

    Thunder being repaired and Pirates scheduled closure.
    Big Thunder right now does not have a reopening date scheduled. I think the damage may be more serious on this particular attraction than what the Press Release has led us to think. I hope its up and running soon.

    New Cindy attraction nice. Walktrough with displays of scenes from film. Beautiful but nothing special.
    I had no idea this was scheduled to open today. With so much else happening at the park it probarely won't recieve the attention it deserves. But with it being a small capacity attraction. Thats for the best really right now.

    VIDEO AND PHOTOS COMING THIS WEEKEND.
    Look forward to seeing the pictures and videos.

    There is no connection between the two parks, scheduling wise. If they scheduled more characters, that was within the TDL scheduling time frame.

    That's funny. On a different website you claimed that the resort was fine and dandy.

    This page (Japanese only) says it will reopen on Friday 29th April. Unless Google translate has got it wildly wrong.
