It takes a while for them to make it, but the sushi donut is worth the wait. It tastes as good as it looks and in the realm of theme park foods, it’s a decent value. It’s basically several connected pieces of sushi, and honestly, I’ve paid more for this much sushi outside of Disney World. Don’t worry, chopsticks and soy sauce are not pictured, but they are provided.

It’s shaped like a fish, so this item was expected to be a fun tasty one, right? Well, unless you really enjoy red bean paste, you’re going to have a bad time. Nobody in our group enjoyed this dish, but that single ingredient caused the issues. You may have better luck, but we can’t recommend it.

Sapporo Draft Beer (4.9% ABV) – $4.25

Sapporo describes their Premium Beer as “a refreshing lager with a crisp, refined flavor and a clean finish. The perfect beer to pair with any meal and any occasion.”

Masu Sake in a Traditional Personalized Wooden Cup – $10.00

It’s a souvenir and a sizeable drink all in one. You really do get a wooden cup, which the Cast Members are more than happy to personalize with your name written in Japanese on the side. The sake was your average sake, but it was ladled into the wooden cup from a huge barrel. A really unique experience, something only Festival of the Arts can pull off.

*NEW* Melting Snow Cocktail: Sake, Peach Schnapps, Cranberry Juice, and Japanese Calpico – $7.50

The Japan booth always has some interesting alcoholic concoction to offer, and this year is no different. I can tell you for a fact that melting snow in New York isn’t pink in color, more often it’s kind of grey, but that doesn’t stop our enjoyment of this beverage. This one may not please everyone, but if the ingredient list above sounds like something you would be interested in, then I can’t imagine that you would be unhappy with this sweet offering. The sake isn’t overpowering if that’s your concern, the fruits are the prevalent flavors.
