PHOTOS, REVIEW: Cheese & Shrimp Cutlet Sandwich for Disney Halloween and a Tour of Tokyo Disneyland’s Camp Woodchuck Kitchen

It’s time for Disney Halloween at Tokyo Disney Resort! And one of my favorite parts of any Tokyo Disney Resort event is the array of snacks and food items available! In this series of reviews, I’ll be detailing every single new snack and counter-service item. Today, let’s visit Camp Woodchuck Kitchen, which is one of my favorite counter service restaurants at Tokyo Disney Resort. They serve the delicious Fried Chicken & Maple Sauce Waffle Sandwich, which is a nice callback to life in the South. And for Disney Halloween, they’ve introduced a strange sandwich featuring  a long stick of fried shrimp cutlet and cheese with ghost eyes printed on it. However, it still brings a lot more to the table than you’d expect! Let’s set up camp and take a look!

Cheese & Shrimp Cutlet Sandwich Set – ¥1080 ($10.10)

One of the things I adore about Camp Woodchuck Kitchen is how well done the theming and decor are. We’ll touch on that later, but I thought the menu looking like a blackboard was awesome! The set can also come with a case themed around the Spooky “Boo!” Parade, but it’s an extra ¥1000 ($9.35).

This is everything you get in the set (including a neat tray that I wish I could keep). I won’t dwell too much on the fries and drink since they’re fairly standard, but the fries need more salt. That’s about it.

I will say, the eyes in the cheese honestly look like mold. It weirds me out a bit, even though I know it’s not. The rest of the sandwich is a nice, fluffy bun with the shrimp cutlet, some red cabbage, and a sauce I couldn’t quite identify.

I’m loving this wrapper! This is actually a holdover from last year, as the design aesthetic changed this year, and it retains “Disney’s Halloween” on the wrapper. I believe this is the only location serving food with this design, and I wish I had a reason to keep it!

How does it taste? Pretty darn good, actually! The shrimp cutlet isn’t greasy or soggy and doesn’t taste overpoweringly shrimpy, the cheese and especially sauce compliment the shrimp cutlet well, and it’s a nice portion size, even for American visitors. This is absolutely one of the better counter-service options for Halloween at Tokyo Disneyland, and I recommend a visit!

Decor & Theming

Camp Woodchuck is a mini-land tucked away in Tokyo Disneyland’s Westernland. It opened in 2016, and features this awesome summer camp aesthetic!

This mural is in Camp Woodchuck Kitchen’s stairwell, and it’s simply beautiful.

There’s even a fire pit area outside! I don’t know if there’s ever actually a fire here, but it certainly looks cool!

Plus on the balcony (where I was seated), there’s a gorgeous view of Tom Sawyer Island and the rest of Westernland. Even if you aren’t dining here, see if you can make a stop at Camp Woodchuck Kitchen on your next visit and take in the beautiful design!

The Cheese & Shrimp Cutlet Sandwich is available at Tokyo Disneyland’s Camp Woodchuck Kitchen through October 31st! I highly recommend you drop in here for lunch!
