Walt Disney World Opening Takumi-Tei Restaurant in Summer 2019 at Epcot

We are extremely excited to learn more about a new restaurant coming to Epcot in Walt Disney World!  This new restaurant will be a table service dining location, which will be located in the Japan pavilion within Epcot’s World Showcase.  This restaurant will offer a signature dining experience that is inspired by the natural beauty of Japan. There will even be a Chef’s Table dining experience offered in the water room (artist rendering below).

The restaurant name is confirmed to be Takumi-Tei, which means house of the artisan.  “The design celebrates the relationship between Japanese craftsmanship and the natural world, while the food is inspired by the wonderful collaboration between nature and takumi, the artisan.”  Guests will find waqyu beef on the menu, plus a multi-course tasting menu including a traditional tea service.

Takumi-Tei is set to open in Epcot this summer.  It will be operated by Mitsukoshi USA, which also operates the other restaurants at the pavilion as well as the merchandise locations.

Who else can’t wait to check out Takumi-Tei at Walt Disney World?

About Christy Caby

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
