Best Sushi in Disney World – Where Do You Find It?


Sharing is caring!

If you want some delicious sushi while you are in Disney World there are plenty of great choices for you.

You can find Japanese food in many places in Walt Disney World.

From a Signature Restaurant with a view to a traditional Japanese dining experience, a quick service kiosk, or a hibachi grill, there are some amazing options.

Updated for September 2022 with all the information that you need to make a choice of exactly where to find your perfect Japanese sushi spot in the Disney parks.

Here we explore all your dining choices in search of the best sushi in Disney World.

Sushi in Walt Disney World Hotel Resorts

Many of the options for sushi lovers are located in Walt Disney World Hotel Resort restaurants.

When you are considering where to dine in Disney World, don’t just look to the theme parks. Always look to the Disney Hotel Resorts too.

Not only are there some fabulous restaurants in Disney World Resorts. You can visit them at any time as you do not need a Disney World ticket.

You can find some great sushi in these Disney Hotel Resorts:

  • California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
  • Kona Cafe at Disney’s Polynesian Hotel Resort
  • Walt Disney World Swan Resort Kimonos Lounge

California Grill At Disney’s Contemporary Resort Sushi

Visitors to Disney World know that the California Grill is one of the finest restaurants in the whole of Disney World.

California Grill is located in Disney’s Contemporary Resort Hotel. This restaurant is known for its amazing views of the World Showcase Lagoon.

This is one of the best places in Disney World to watch the Magic Kingdom Fireworks.

Like all of the Disney World Hotel Resorts, you do not have to be a guest to dine here.

You also don’t need a park ticket, so an arrival day can be a good time to visit one of the hotel resort dining locations.

The California Grill is a Disney Signature Restaurant. What does this mean? This is a designation of one of the finest restaurants in the whole of Walt Disney World.

It also means that if you are using the Disney Dining Plan to dine here then it requires two dining credits.

The decor and ambiance are first-class. This truly is one of those Disney Dining experiences that you have to have at least once in a lifetime.

In order to watch the fireworks from this amazing vantage point, you have to have a reservation.

Even if you dine too early to see the fireworks when you are eating, just show your check to gain access to the restaurant at fireworks time. The view and atmosphere is amazing.

The location is stunning. But California Grill isn’t just about a wonderful location. It serves fabulous food. Including some of the best sushi in Disney World.

The California Grill used to have a bar menu that served just sushi. However, when the dining room opened after the shutdown, the area was revamped and the lounge menu changed to offer other more traditional American dishes as well as sushi.

California Grill Bar Menu

Braised Beef Short Rib Wontons

Doenjang Miso-Cola-Onion-Sauce, Crispy Garlic Chili Oil, Radish, Pickled Lotus Root

Blue Crab California Roll

Jumbo Lump Crab, Avocado, Cucumber, Shrimp Tempura

Yellowfin Tuna Tasting

Maki, Oshizushi, Nigiri, Tartare and Wasabi, Pickled Ginger, Dashi, Crispy Garlic, Yuzu-Gooseberry Gel, Soy Gel, Tapioca-Nori Puff

Spicy Kazan Roll

Crab, Shrimp, Scallops, Tuna, Fireball Sauce

Sushi Sampler

Nigiri and Sashimi, featuring Yellow Fin Tuna, Hamachi, Salmon

The presentation is of course amazing of the sushi in California Grill. Take some time to watch the amazing sushi chefs in the open kitchen make these amazing creations.

Kona Cafe at Disneys Polynesian Village Resort

This is one of my favorite places to get sushi in Walt Disney World. The Polynesian Village Resort is such an easy place to get to if you are visiting Magic Kingdom.

Image By

Just hop on the monorail from Magic Kingdom and you can be at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort in minutes

There are lots of great dining options here and one of my favorites is the sushi selection at Kona Cafe.

Kona Cafe is well known for the Tonga Toast that it serves for breakfast – and it is certainly worth a trip here for that particular specialty.

Photo By

However, Kona Cafe is less well known for its sushi. Is it the best in Disney World? I think there are places where you will find better sushi than here.

However, it’s still a decent choice if you are craving some sushi and you want a relaxed dining experience very close to the Magic Kingdom theme park.

If it fits in with your plans for the rest of the day then I would suggest giving it a try – but I probably wouldn’t make a special visit.

There are just four sushi options on the Polynesian Resort sushi menu.

Spicy Tuna Roll

Ahi Tuna, Spicy Mayonnaise, Cucumber

California Roll

Jumbo Lump Crab, Citrus Mayonnaise, Cucumber, Avocado

Surf and Turf

Kona-spiced Filet, Cucumber, Chili-spiced Lobster, Crab, Avocado, Yuzu Aïoli, Sriracha

Rainbow Roll

Tuna, Salmon, Shrimp, Hamachi, Lump Crab, Cucumber, Avocado

Disney World Swan Kimonos Lounge

Let’s be real. The Walt Disney World Swan Hotel and Dolphin often get forgotten when thinking about places to stay and dine at Disney World.

Whilst there are some good reasons why staying at these hotels is not always the most favorable option, we really shouldn’t forget about the dining options.

If you are looking for some of the best sushi rolls in Disney World you really have to give Kimono in the Disney World Swan Resort a try.

There are two parts to this sushi place. The Kimonos Restaurant and the Lounge.

If you want a more formal dining experience visit Kimonos Restaurant. The full table service restaurant menu includes Crab Sushi, Tuna Roll, Asparagus Roll, Fresh Salmon Nigiri, and Shrimp Tempura Roll.

You can see the full Kimonos Menu Here.

Disney Kimonos Lounge Sushi Menu

California Roll

Krab, Avocado, Cucumber and Smelt Roe

Spicy Rainbow Roll

Spicy Tuna, Salmon and Avocado

Dragon Roll

Dragon Roll

Giant Crispy Shrimp and Tuna

Cajun Roll

Spicy Crawfish

Jalapeño Roll

Spicy Tuna and Yellowtail

Alaskan Roll

Crab Salad, Avocado and Salmon

I really would recommend that you give Kimonos Lounge a try. This is one of those locations that is easy to overlook – but is definitely worth the effort if you want to enjoy some tasty sushi rolls in a fun dining room.

It is within very easy walking distance of Epcot, so if you can combine it with a visit to the theme park and a late reservation for the restaurant this is an ideal scenario.

The actual restaurant space is long and narrow with the sushi bar at the back.

Another great feature is karaoke! You really can’t get much more Japanese than sushi and the inevitable shame/amazing highs of a karaoke venue!

It’s Karaoke time from Wednesday to Sunday as the lounge transforms into a karaoke bar from 9:30 PM until 1:00 AM.

Walt Disney World Swan vs Dophin – Which is the Best?

Don’t be shy in this sushi venue. Go up to the sushi chefs and talk to them and ask for suggestions. See what they are making for other people and ask for one!

This really can be such a fabulous interactive experience and I have spent many happy hours here. If you love Japanese food you will love Kimonos at the Disney Swan.

Best Epcot Sushi Restaurants

As you might expect, some of the very best sushi in Disney World is found in the Epcot theme park.

In Epcot World Showcase you will find the Japan Pavilion. Of course, you are going to find great sushi here!

If I had to pick one Disney theme park to eat in for evermore it would most definitely be Epcot. There are some amazing Epcot Restaurants for you to try.

Where do you find sushi at Epcot?

Japanese cuisine is wonderfully represented in Epcot:

  • Epcot Tokyo Dining
  • Katsura Grill
  • Teppan Edo
  • Takumi-Tei
  • Kabuki Cafe

Epcot Toyko Dining Restaurant

Epcot Tokyo Dining Restaurants has one of the most visually stunning exteriors of any Disney World restaurant.

It is set on the second floor above the fabulous Mitsukoshi Store in the Epcot Japan Pavilion.

Photo By

This is a particularly great place to dine to watch the Epcot fireworks at the end of the day.

You do have to get a window table though to get decent views.

Always ask when making a reservation – and you may get lucky.

Photo By

The interior of Epcot Tokyo Dining is very modern. There are screens on the walls displaying beautiful scenes from Japan.

The service is attentive and polite.

Just as with all the Epcot Pavilions, the servers have to be from the country represented. So all the wait staff are from Japan.

Photo By

The sushi is fresh and tasty. It is also pretty reasonably priced for an Epcot restaurant.

The dining room was closed for a considerable time after the shutdown. It was interesting to see how prices had changed in the intervening couple of years when I revised this article for 2022.

Most prices had gone up by $2 including the Volcano Roll.

It is also good to see the addition of the Unagi Avocado Roll which is a fabulous combination of Barbecued Eel with Avocado and Nori, topped with Eel Sauce

Tokyo Dining in Epcot is a good place to have sushi in Disney World. Particularly if you manage to get a window table for the fireworks.

California Roll

Krab Meat, Avocado, Cucumber, Smelt Roe, and Mayonnaise

Spicy Crunchy Roll

Tuna and Salmon Mix marinated with Soy Sauce, topped with Dynamite and Volcano Sauce finished with Tempura crunch

Volcano Roll

grilled California roll topped with shrimp, scallops, and volcano sauce

Vegetable Roll

Cucumber, Asparagus, Carrots, Gari Ginger, and Avocado

Shrimp Tempura Roll

Cucumber, Asparagus, Carrots, Gari Ginger, and Avocado

Unagi Avocado Roll

Barbecued Eel with Avocado, Nori, topped with Eel Sauce

You can see the full menu here.

Epcot Takumi-Tei

If you are looking for an amazing, authentic Japanese dining experience and you don’t mind the sticker shock, then you should absolutely check out Takumi Tei in the Japan Epcot Pavilion.

It is located adjacent to the Mitsukoshi Store and indeed the restaurant is run by the same company.

When I mention that the Tasting Menu here costs $150 this will probably be enough to give you the idea that this is not the place for a quick sushi roll fix!

Unfortunately, Takumi-Tei has not yet reopened at the time of writing which is September 2022.

Sushi at Epcot Takumi-Tei

The sushi is, as you would expect, of the highest quality. It is also beautifully presented. Here is just a small selection of the Takumi Tei Menu.


Tuna, Yellowtail, Asparagus, Tobiko, Red Shiso Rice, Lemon Grass Ponzu

Aburi Wagyu

Japanese A-5 Wagyu Beef, Asparagus, Shiitake Mushroom, Cured Duck Egg Yolk, Warishita


Tempura Tiger Prawn, Curry Emulsion, Tobiko.


Pickled Cucumber, Watermelon Radish, Daikon, Shiso, Avocado, Leek Gel

This is an amazing dining experience and has some of the best sushi in Disney World.

However, Takumi-Tei should probably be seen in the same category as Victoria and Albert’s as it offers the same level of dining experience. Know that going in and you will most likely have an amazing dining experience.

Kabuki Cafe Epcot

There are certainly many different places to enjoy your sushi in the Japan Pavilion in Epcot!

This unassuming kiosk is located at the front of the Pavilion.

Photo By

If you want a quick sushi fix this is the place for you. Is it the best sushi in Disney World? I think you probably already know that the answer to that is going to be no. But it is decent sushi at a great price for an Epcot snack? Definitely.

Nigiri Combo

Salmon, Tuna, and Shrimp

California Roll

Avocado, Cucumber, Krab, Mayonnaise, Smelt Roe

Spicy Roll

Spicy Tuna, Salmon with Cucumber Mix, and Volcano Sauce

Epcot Teppan Edo

If you enjoy entertainment whilst you eat this Hibachi Grill restaurant does not disappoint.

This is my personal favorite of all the Japanese restaurants in Epcot.

Photo By

Here you are seated around the hibachi grill – where the chef will prepare your food right in front of you.

This means, unless you have. a large party you will be dining with strangers.

Photo By

I admit it took me years to get into this concept.

I tend to prefer just being with people who I know in a restaurant.

I am always the one who asks for a private table on a Disney Cruise.

However, once I tried Teppan Edo I was hooked on the whole hibachi experience!

Teppan Edo is loud. Very loud. There are some rooms at the back that are a little quieter, so if you want you can request that you are seated here.

Most people order one of the Entrees which is prepared on the grill. This is a really great option. However, if you want to order sushi they have that too.

A favorite is the very tasty Volcano Roll or the Sushi Sampler.

Volcano Roll

grilled California roll topped with shrimp, scallops, and volcano sauce

Spicy Roll

8 pieces tuna-salmon mix with cucumber, seaweed wrap and volcano sauce

California Roll

8 pieces, inside-out roll with krab, cucumber, masago and avocado

Sashimi Sampler

2 pieces tuna, 2 pieces salmon, 2 pieces yellowtail

Sushi Sampler

2 pieces spicy roll, 2 pieces California roll, 3 pieces nigiri

Teppan Edo is one of my favorite Epcot Restaurants. I recommend you try it here at least once even if you think you may not like the concept. I missed out on years of a great dining experience because it was outside my comfort zone!

Katsura Grill at Epcot

This is one of those places in Disney World which are legitimately called a hidden gem.

As you would expect some o the best places for sushi in Disney World are located in the Japan Pavilion in Epcot World Showcase.

Photo Credit

The Japan Pavilion in Epcot is one of my favorite places in Disney World. I just love walking around the store and taking in the amazing relaxation of the whole environment. It’s a happy place.

And a hidden gem is Katsura Grill which is a quick-service dining location in the Japan Pavilion. It is a bit hidden as you have to walk up through the beautiful Japanese Garden to get to this relatively quiet haven.

Lines are relatively short and the sushi is of high quality. Here you can find the classic sushi favorites including a vegetable roll.

It’s also reasonably priced. So if you have a sushi craving, are limited on time and budget, this really is one of your best bests in Epcot.

Tokyo Sushi Combo

4 pcs. California Roll & 3 pcs. Nigiri

California Roll


Vegetable Roll


Spicy Roll


This is one of the best places to get some very decent tasting sushi for a reasonable price in Walt Disney World.

There are some places where you are able to sit inside and out. Usually, this venue is not that crowded as this is not that well known.

Disney Springs Sushi Restaurants

Disney Springs, formerly known as Downtown Disney, is full of restaurants, stores, and entertainment venues.

It is a great place to visit at any time of the year as you do not have to have a ticket for Disney World to explore!

Anyone can have a great time at Disney Springs – and there is no entrance fee and even the parking is free.

Morimoto Asia Sushi Bar – Disney Springs

Disney Springs also has one of the best places to get some first-rate delicious sushi. As well as a somewhat unexpected sushi bar location – bowling and California roll anyone?

Here are the places to get sushi in Disney Springs:

  • Morimoto Asia
  • Splitsville Luxury Lanes

Morimoto Asia – Disney Springs

Morimoto Asia is one of my favorite restaurants in Disney World. It is visually stunning both inside and out.

And the food is outstanding.

It is also quite pricey!

Photo Credit

This amazingly beautiful space is the result of a partnership between Chef Masaharu Morimoto and the Patina Restaurant Group.

This was one of the first restaurants to arrive during the transition from Downtown Disney into Disney Springs.

Serving Pan Asian food, including a fine selection of sushi, this is the place to be for a fabulous lunch or dinner.

To say that Monimoto is visually stunning is an understatement. The dining room is spectacular.

This two-floor restaurant has 20-foot long chandeliers, a huge open kitchen where you can watch the talented sushi chefs at work, and a whole lot of atmosphere.

This is not a place for a quiet dinner. Or an inexpensive one!

But it does have some of the best sushi in Disney World. This is one dining room where the taste lives up to the visual experience and ambiance.

Photo By

There are many selections on the Morimoto menu, not just sushi. If you are craving Orange Chicken. Lo Mein Noodles Filet Mignon, or Peking Duck, this is the place to be.

If you love oysters the Sushi and Sashimi Pagoda is a great selection to share. If there are three of you it detracts a bit from the $110 sticker shock.

If you want an indulgent meal the flavors here are amazing.

Here is a small selection of the sushi menu so that you can have an idea of what is available and what the pricing is.

chef’s daily selection of 9 pcs nigiri, 1 roll

Monimoto is one of my favorite places for sushi anywhere in the world, not just Disney World. Many people seem to agree with me – this place is very popular and reservations are highly recommended.

Splitsville Luxury Lanes at Disney Springs

Probably the last place you might expect to find sushi is in a bowling alley, but this Disney Springs venue serves up some decent sushi at very reasonable prices.

If you fancy some sushi and some good traditional bowling then head on over to Splitsville Luxury Lanes!

You can get the more expected menu items such as pizza and burgers, but you can also satisfy your sushi craving whilst enjoying some bowling with family and friends.

Splitsville shows that you do not have to be in a Japanese restaurant to serve up decent sushi.

Is it the best sushi in Disney World? No, it really isn’t.

But it is decent sushi for a reasonable price in a very casual setting, given that you are in the middle of Disney Springs here.
