Tokyo Disneyland ‘Comforts’ Japanese Reeling From Earthquake

Tokyo Disneyland opened earlier than its 8 a.m. schedule today as about 10,000 people lined up to visit the amusement park that had been shut for five weeks by the strongest earthquake on record to hit Japan.

“I could hardly sleep last night because I was too excited,” Takashi Katakura, 56, said as he waited to get inside. “Disneyland is the place that cheers me up, and I never age here.”
