Mitsukoshi Tokyo Dining at Disney's EPCOT : Allan Oakley's Guide to everything Orlando

Hello from Sunny Orlando, Florida;

My name is Allan. I guess you can say  my family is comprised of the ultimate fans of Walt  Disney World. We first visited the Disney World days after it opened EPCOT. It took a load of visits before we decided in 1989 that Orlando felt more like home in comparison to Canada. Yes, we moved from North Bay, Ontario  to Orlando in 1996.That was not before  we enjoyed a lifetime of Orlando adventures.

 

I hope you enjoy our website. Living here offers you a unique perspective on life in the shadow of the mouse. Our house is literally 3 miles south of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. So close that we hear the fireworks almost every night of the week. During the cooler winter months we see them most nights. My intention is to document our adventures and post  new events of interest as they happen here. Kind of a memoir,somewhat of a history but at the heart of this a viewpoint you’d never see  or hear about living anywhere else.
 
Let's start with a BLOG I am creating http://lowcostfunatdisney.blogspot.com/   for fun.
 
Best wishes for today from Sunny Florida
Allan
 
Introduction:
It was our anniversary and I had no idea where we were going this year.Each September my wife or son come up with a new restaurant adventure at the Walt Disney World Resort .I am always amazed at what they discover.
 
For many years we could never get in to any of the main restaurants in the Japanese pavillion. Eaerlier in 2009 they closed some portions for renovations. Was I surprised to hear we were going to try something new.
Mitsukoshi Tokyo Dining offers traditional Japanese cuisine and ingredients with innovative presentations. The décor of the restaurant is elegantly done in a modern but truly authentic setting. When you walk in you are greeted by bonifide Japanese cast members.They constantly  bow and thank you in true Japanese style. This attention to detail delivers authenticity to your dining experience. The menu combines traditional food culture dating back to the Edo period  along with the modern spirit Tokyo. You main entrees include sushi and sashimi, steak, chicken, and shrimp, as well as beverages such as hot sake, green tea and Kirin beer. If you like sushi you will be amazed. If you have  never had sushi you will before you leave
 
Entrance:
There is no denying you feel like you are actually in Japan
The view as you enter is stunning. After a pleasant meal  this is one of the finest viewpoints for the evening fireworks at EPCOT
 
The restaurant itself is modern and well lit

Sushi lovers will celebrate how fresh the selection will be
