There are a LOT of pricey dining options around Walt Disney World, and a lot of them can shape up to be an experience you’ll never forget — hopefully in a good way!
Of course, our wallets and our Disney Dining Plans would probably hate us if we jumped at every opportunity to indulge in Disney World, so a lot of times, we stick to quick service and more economic table service options.
But sometimes, you want to splurge on a meal and a dining experience, and Epcot has a pretty awesome signature option that’ll break the bank — but also give you a meal to remember. It’s Takumi Tei, and you’ll find it in the Japan pavilion.
If you’ve ever wanted to eat the most expensive meal in Epcot, here’s what it would cost you!
First, let’s talk about what we mean by the most expensive meal. We’re using a three-course model of appetizer, entree, and dessert with one alcoholic beverage. So let’s see how you can build the most expensive meal at Takumi-Tei!
Appetizer — Nikomi Wagyu
Starting off with the appetizer, the most expensive option is the Nikomi Wagyu for $29.00. This dish is made with Roasted Bone Marrow, Braised Wagyu Short Rib, Yuzu Kosho, and Wasabi Shiso Bavaroise Warishita. Course one down, and our total is $29.00.
Entree — Takumi Gyuniku
Next up is the entree where we’re opting for the Takumi Gyuniku for $120.00. Yes, this would be Wagyu beef for two courses, but hey, you wanted the most expensive meal! This plate is prepared with Japanese A-5 Wagyu Tenderloin, Leek Sauce, Warishita, Curried Potato, and Seasonal Mushroom. The entree brings our total up to $149.00 so far.
Dessert — Kumo
What better way to wrap up your pricy meal than with the Kumo for $16.00. This is a Japanese-style Cheesecake with Caramel Miso Ice Cream, Kinako, Pumpkin Meringue, and Wakamomo Plum Wine. The final course takes our total up to $165.00.
Drink — Stag’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon
But what are we drinking with the most expensive meal in Epcot? Why probably the Stag’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley for a whopping $30.00 a glass.
Altogether, the most expensive meal will run you $195.00 not counting gratuity. But there’s technically a more expensive option at Takumi-Tei (even if it is out of our three-course parameters).
Alternate Option — Chef’s Table in the Water Room
If you’re looking for a super exclusive and super expensive option in Epcot, look no further than the Chef’s Table at Takumi-Tei. This choice is less of a meal and more of an experience. It is a nine-course Kaiseki dining experience over the course of three hours, and it is priced at $180.00 per person, not counting a drink. That means you add in the glass of wine, and it beats the other meal at $210.00.
Of course, you can also opt for a six-course beverage pairing for another $100 dollars, making this meal a $280 experience once you’re all in. If you are interested in some serious splurging, this is a great option, but you’ll need to find five friends since this meal is for groups of 6-8.
