May Disney Dining Update - Including A New Restaurant Coming to Epcot!
Updated: May 14, 2018
There are some new food offerings available throughout Walt Disney World and the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is still under way at Walt Disney World offering some amazing treats, but first, let's get excited for some big Disney dining news:
A new restaurant is coming to Epcot!
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 be inspired from both nature and takumi, which means “artisan” in Japanese. 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.
Le Cellier - While we are on the subject of Epcot, Le Cellier in Canada at Epcot will be offering a new prix fixe lunch menu in addition to the regular menu until September 30, 2018. Appetizers include the popular Cheddar Cheese Soup made with Moosehead Beer and Nueske’s Applewood-Smoked Bacon and the Le Cellier House Salad, with mixed lettuces from The Land, toy box tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, radish, whole grain croutons, and Minus 8 Maple Vinaigrette. For your entrée, choose between Steak and Frites with certified angus hangar steak, au poive sauce, crispy onions, and truffle fries; the Le Cellier Lobster “BLT” Burger with a blend of wagyu beef and Applewood-smoked bacon, lobster and crab mix, tomato jam, bibb lettuce, béarnaise, and pickles on a brioche bun with truffle fries; or the Spring Cavatelli Pasta with morel mushrooms, asparagus tips, English peas, arugula, white asparagus cream and house-made lemon ricotta. And for dessert, try the Maple Crème Brûlée (one of my favorite desserts at Walt Disney World!) or the Chocolate Mousse Maple Leaf.
Alcoholic beverages are now available at The Plaza Restaurant, The Crystal Palace, and The Diamond Horseshoe at Magic Kingdom Park for guests ages 21 and over.
The Plaza Restaurant will offer a selection of American beer and wine including beverages such as a regional craft India Pale Ale which goes perfectly 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 your favorite meal such as pasta or shrimp from the lunch and dinner buffets.
The Diamond Horseshoe will offer 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.

Everything POP Shopping & Dining - Disney’s Pop Century Resort will start offering Artisanal Pizzas, including the Tomato and Cheese Please pizza with a 4-cheese blend, teardrop tomatoes, baby arugula, and an olive oil drizzle; the Applewood Bacon pizza with roasted garlic spread, double cheese, and crispy bacon strips; and the Summertime pizza with BBQ pulled chicken, caramelized onions, and spiced BBQ sauce.
