Attendance at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea improved dramatically during August, with the parks receiving more visitors than they did during the same period in 2010.

Japan Times reports that the performance marks a significant turnaround following the impact of the massive earthquake that struck Japan in March. It means the operators of the Tokyo Disney Resort, the Oriental Land Company, expect to report a profit for the ful year to March despite losing some ¥3.8 billion between April and June.

The Tokyo Disney Resort was forced to close both of its theme parks for over a month following the earthquake. Around 20,000 guests spent the night at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea on March 11 after the disaster caused massive disruption to public transport systems.

Visitors levels began to recover in May, and returned to 2010 levels in July, according to the report. However, the resort recently closed Cirque Du Soleil's Zed show due a sharp drop in attendance following the earthquake.
