Tokyo Disneyland resumes full operations on Saturday

Hey Mickey!
After suspending its operations for one month and opening only in daytime since Friday, Tokyo Disneyland announced that its nighttime operations will resume as early as Saturday.
The amusement park's operator Oriental Land Company said on Tuesday that the original closing time of 22:00 will come back as opposed to the current 18:00, in a report by Kyodo News.
The famous electrical night parade will also resume.
Tokyo Disneyland shut down its operations following the triple disasters that hit northeastern Japan on 11 March. The magnitude 9.0 quake resulted in a liquefaction damage in the Disney's parking lot, which is located in Urayasu in Chiba Prefecture, just outside Tokyo that created power supply shortage.
I am sure that Disney fans like me and the girl in Hideo Suzuki San's report will be happy to read this development.

North Korean media reported the "seriousness" of the radiation crisis at the Fukushima power plant.
A report by The Japan Times said that neither the state TV Korean Central Televisionnor the ruling Workers' Party of Korea's Rodong Sinmun, broadcasted on Sunday night the TEPCO's plan to control the crisis within six to nine months.
Located far from the sight, the media outlets of the communist country seemed "geniunely concerned about the crisis."
A North Korean expert said, "What is most serious is that even a month after the accident, we see no prospects of getting radioactive leakages under control."
Another expert warned, "There is a possibility that unexpected radioactive substances may leak (out of the plant)."
Author's note: If North Korea were so concerned about the nuclear crisis, it should start rethinking its plan to go nuclear. We should be wary of our spellings as "nuclear" may turn into "unclear".
