The Walt Disney Co. has temporarily shut down administrative and store operations in Tokyo following the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis in Japan.
The news comes nearly a week after the company closed its two theme parks in the city -- Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea -- to perform safety checks.
"Our top priority is the wellbeing of our employees and their families during this challenging time and we will continue to closely monitor the situation as it develops," Disney told the Los Angeles Times in a statement.
