Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea have some excellent restaurants, in terms of both theme and cuisine. We’ve dined at most of the restaurants in the parks, and have reviewed many of them in posts on the blog. Each of these reviews features food photos, our thoughts on ambiance & food quality, plus comments about everything from service to value for money, and more.
If a Tokyo Disneyland restaurant that you’re considering is absent from the reviews below, feel free to ask about it in the comments. While we’ve dined at almost every restaurant at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, there are still a dozen or so for which we still don’t have a review finished.
Before we get to the reviews, a few notes. First, unlike other parks where service can be inconsistent, service is consistently excellent at Tokyo Disney Resort’s restaurants, which is definitely a cultural thing. Second, another cultural thing, there’s no tipping in Japan. Even if your server goes above and beyond, do not leave a tip–it’s considered rude and in many cases, you’ll be chased down to have the money returned to you.
The reviews here are just for Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea in Japan. We have reviews for Disney restaurants around the globe, including Walt Disney World, Disneyland Paris, Disneyland Resort, and Hong Kong Disneyland. Check out our “Disney Dining Reviews Index” page to find them all.
With that said, here are our reviews, organized by park…
In our experience, Tokyo Disneyland is the place to go for counter service meals in highly themed environments, or perhaps a buffet if you’re really hungry. We have not done most of the table service restaurants here, and that’s because they mostly look uninspired–both thematically and in terms of cuisine–as compared to Tokyo DisneySea’s table service options.
Tokyo DisneySea has some great, adult restaurants, plus lounges and great snack spots, too. It’s counter service options are also spectacular, making it one of–if not the–best theme parks for dining in the world.
This is just a partial listing of the restaurants at Tokyo Disney Resort at which we’ve dined. We have a lot more reviews coming soon from Tokyo DisneySea and Tokyo Disneyland, plus the three resort hotels. Even if you don’t plan on ever visiting these parks, we think it can be fun to see the unique Disney theming in these places. Just be careful…you might find yourself wanting to visit in the near future to see some of the beautiful restaurants and try some of the delicious snacks!
If you’re thinking of visiting Japan for the first time and are overwhelmed with planning, definitely check out our Tokyo Disney Resort Planning Guide. It covers much more than the parks, from getting there to WiFi to currency and much, much more. For more photos and an idea of what we did day-by-day during our first visit, read our Tokyo Disney Resort Trip Report.
