Ahead of its opening this summer at Epcot’s Japan pavilion, the restaurant page for Takumi-Tei is now available at the Walt Disney World website, revealing some more details about this new signature restaurant.
Perhaps the most important detail is that it will be only the second in-park signature dining restaurant to have a dress code, joining Monsieur Paul at the France pavilion.
From the website: “In order to preserve the atmosphere of this dining experience, Guests are asked to adhere to the dress code. The minimum dress code is required—and dressier attire is also welcome. Please review the minimum dress code requirements: Men must wear khakis, slacks or dress shorts and collared shirts. Jeans may be worn if in good condition. Sport coats are optional. Women must wear Capri pants, skirts, dresses or dress shorts. Jeans may be worn if in good condition. Not permitted are tank tops, flip-flops, swimsuits, swimsuit cover-ups, hats for gentlemen, cut-offs, torn clothing and t-shirts with offensive language and/or graphics.”
Another notable detail is that no Disney Dining Plans will be accepted at Takumi-Tei, at least for the foreseeable future. This may be because of the newness of the restaurant, or an ongoing policy. We will keep you updated as we learn more about this new signature dining experience.
Disney’s description of the restaurant is as follows:
Immerse yourself in a truly creative dining experience in a sublime setting at Takumi-Tei—Japanese for “house of the artisan.”
Delight your senses in this stunning setting when you dine on brilliantly prepared dishes.
At Takumi-Tei, you’ll dine in one of 5 rooms, each inspired by a natural element—water, wood, earth, stone or washi paper. Every area will feature beautiful, handcrafted works of art honoring the element that brought it to life.
The beauty of Japan is featured both in its art and in its cuisine. Dine on creatively prepared, Japanese-inspired dishes from a multicourse tasting menu, featuring a traditional Japanese tea service. Guests may also enjoy signature cocktails, premium sake, wine and craft beer.
For the ultimate experience, dine on an exclusive menu at the Chef’s Table in the Water Room. This space is beautifully designed to immerse diners in a tranquil setting that reflects the balance between nature and Japanese art.
Guests must be at least 21 years of age to consume alcohol.
