Making our way around the world! It has been one of my dreams to try every restaurant at Epcot, so when my husband’s birthday was approaching, I knew where we had to go. Timothy’s favorite food has always been sushi, and slowly but surely he has pulled me on the bandwagon.
Making our reservation
It is pretty easy to snag a spot at this World Showcase restaurant. It is definitely not because it isn’t delicious, I think parents may just not have adventurous eaters with them(like myself 5 years ago). We logged onto the My Disney Experience App and made a same day lunch reservation.
Tokyo Dining is adjacent to another delicious Japanese restaurant: Teppan Edo. You will check in at the desk on your right. We were greeted with smiling faces and were seated within 5 minutes of our arrival.
Our table was located right next to a huge window overlooking the World Showcase. Safe to say it is the best dinner view we have had at Disney!
Drinks & Appetizers
I opted for a glass of red wine, while Tim got a spiked coffee drink.
Thank goodness for the Disney Foodies Facebook page! When we asked for recommendations, we were told to try the Spicy Calamari Tempura. This was one of my favorite parts of the meal. They were extra crunchy and were served with a spicy miso dipping sauce.
We have been to plenty of sushi restaurants in the last few years, but this one takes the cake. We ordered the Spicy Crunchy Roll, the Dragon Monster Roll, and the Fire Cracker Roll.
My husband, the adventurous eater, also ordered the Sashimi Sampler.
We didn’t order dessert, but we were surprised when the staff brought my husband a slice of cake for his birthday. They sang a sweet song, and we especially loved the folded Mickey Mouse they included on his plate.
For sushi lovers like us, this is a must-have! I figured that we would have a good experience, but I was blown away by the service and the quality of the food. We will be heading back to Tokyo Dining(as soon as we finish the rest of restaurants on our bucket list).
