Could A New Japanese Restaurant Be Coming to the World Showcase?

It is I, Anonymouse, here to share what Disney internet is all abuzz with this week and it involves a potential new eatery at Epcot’s Japan Pavilion.

According to several online sources, a new Seafood and Steakhouse restaurant is rumored to be taking over part of the Mitsukoshi Department Store which has seen several layout changes and refurbishment over the last year.

If the rumour is true, this will be Japan’s 3rd Table Service Restaurant, the other two being Teppan Edo and Tokyo Dining.  Opinion is divided as to whether this restaurant is likely to be a reality, with some Disney fans arguing that a third table service eatery wouldn’t work or that there wouldn’t be enough space at Mitsukoshi Department Store for these suggested changes.  However, it could also be seen as a welcome addition to Epcot’s already stellar restaurant line-up and could bring Wagyu Beef to the World Showcase!

Either way, this is a rumor that we’ll be playing close attention to in the weeks and months ahead. Remember, nothing is official until Disney confirms it so be sure to keep following along with us for the latest info!

Anonymouse searches the internet, annoys cast members, and wouldn’t think twice about using a Ouija board to find you the freshest Disney Gossip. Some of what she’ll report is confirmed, some is based on information from the rumor mill, and some, frankly, she just read on the bathroom wall in Fantasyland. So take it with a grain of salt and have fun!
