According to Kyodo News, Tokyo Disneyland is set to reopen Friday following the suspension of its operations due to the catastrophic March 11 earthquake and the ensuing tsunami that hit northeastern and eastern Japan, sources close to the matter said Monday.

After seeing how Disneyland fares, Oriental Land Co, which operates the amusement park in Chiba Prefecture, hopes to resume operations of the neighboring Tokyo DisneySea by April 28 before the Golden Week holidays, the sources said.

The operator determined it could resume operations of Disneyland smoothly as Tokyo Electric Power Co has said it will in principle end the rolling blackouts in eastern Japan which it had conducted to conserve electricity as the disaster crippled one of its nuclear power plants in Fukushima Prefecture.

The date to resume operations was set on Friday to coincide with the 28th anniversary of the opening of Tokyo Disneyland.

As part of efforts to conserve energy, some attractions will be closed and air conditioning will be limited at the parks, while their opening hours will be shortened for the time being, the sources said.
