Japan Pavilion at Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort

While we’re on the topic of Epcot, I have one more exciting announcement: an all-new table service restaurant will be coming to the Japan Pavilion in World Showcase, offering 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. This new restaurant will be operated by Mitsukoshi USA, which operates the merchandise, restaurants (Teppan Edo and Tokyo Dining), 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.

Aztec Hot Diggity Dog at Casey’s Corner in Magic Kingdom Park

At Magic Kingdom Park, you won’t want to miss these special “of the month” items for May! Starting at Casey’s Corner, you’ll find the Aztec Hot Diggity Dog with sweet and spicy ground beef and topped with creamy elote (Mexican grilled corn) mixed with spicy lime mayonnaise and grated Parmesan cheese. At Pinocchio Village Haus, the Flatbread of the Month is the Cinco de Mayo Flatbread with a salsa base and topped with a Mexican cheese blend, ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, and a sour cream drizzle.

New Beverage Pairings at Magic Kingdom Park

Rounding out the list of new offerings, Magic Kingdom Park guests ages 21 and over can now enjoy libations such as wine and beer at The Plaza Restaurant, The Crystal Palace, and The Diamond Horseshoe. These beverages have been specially selected for each restaurant’s unique menu. The Plaza Restaurant will offer a selection of American beer and wine including beverages such as a regional craft India Pale Ale which goes wonderfully with the Angus Chuck Cheeseburger. The Crystal Palace will offer sparkling wine mimosas with breakfast, and wines such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to pair selections such as pasta or shrimp from the lunch and dinner buffets. And at The Diamond Horseshoe, enjoy frontier food favorites with classic American beers and wines like a traditional lager style beer or a robust Pinot Noir, which pair well with the plentiful platter of BBQ pulled pork, sliced turkey, country smoked sausage, or braised beef.

So there you have it! A bountiful Best Bites for the month of May. Be sure to come out and try all these new and delicious offerings!
