I love Epcot! It might be my favorite park in Walt Disney World. And one of my favorite parts of Epcot – all of the amazing eateries that you can find around World Showcase. And it looks like a new Japan Pavilion restaurant is heading to Epcot’s World Showcase
Reported by Disney Parks Blog, an all-new table service restaurant will be coming to the Japan Pavilion in World Showcase. This new eatery will offer guests a signature dining experience inspired by the natural beauty of Japan. The setting will draw from both nature and takumi, which means “artisan” in Japanese, and the relationship between Japanese craftsmanship and the natural world will be evident throughout the space.
As with the current restaurants location in the Japan Pavilion, Teppan Edo and Tokyo Dining, this new restaurant will be operated by Mitsukoshi USA. Mitsukoshi USA also operates the merchandise and kiosks in the Japan Pavilion.
Once completed, the restaurant will add to the rich tapestry of authentic cultural experiences available to guests in World Showcase.
There is not date for this new restaurant will open, or what it will be called. But while we wait, there are other amazing places to eat around World Showcase! Some of my favorites are Biergarten in the Germany Pavilion, where it’s an Octoberfest celebration all year long at this amazing buffet, complete with authentic entertainment and Restaurant Marrakesh, where Savory cuisine and sprightly belly dancing transport you to the heart of Morocco!
Or check out the Signature Dining Experiences currently available at World Showcase. Monsieur Paul will provide you with an evening to remember with classic French cuisine at this gourmet restaurant located in the France Pavilion. In the Canada Pavilion you’ll find Le Cellier Steakhouse where you can head into the cozy cellar of a Canadian château for exquisite steaks and seafood specialties!
And don’t forget about the authentic food available at the Quick Services restaurants located around World Showcase either! It’s a great way to stop for a delicious meal without taking up a ton of park time (or breaking the bank!).
Are you excited to see another Signature Dining experience open at Epcot? Will you be trying the new restaurant opening in the Japan Pavilion? Make sure you keep checking Chip and Co for more information on when we can expect this new restaurant to open, what it will be called and what will be on the menu!
