Theme Park Thursdays: Hard Close in Tokyo

Were you to visit Tokyo Disneyland, you would experience the same great service that American guests have come to know. However one tradition from the American parks is not followed in Tokyo.

Ask any Disney theme park fan and they'll tell you that any guest who is standing in a line at park close will still get a chance to ride the attraction. That is not the case in Tokyo.

Japan's strict overtime rules require employers to provide taxi service to employees who work past their scheduled time. As a result, Tokyo Disneyland enforces a hard close each night. Regardless of what time you got in the line, when the park closes, it is closed.
