We do our best to keep you updated on all the changes that are happening with Disney World!
One of the most common changes we’ve seen lately are price increases around the parks. Restaurants, souvenirs, streaming services…nothing is safe! And now we’re seeing a BIG increase in prices at two dining spots in the Japan Pavilion at EPCOT!
Kabuki Cafe is a snack spot in the Japan Pavilion, and Katsura Grill is a Quick Service restaurant with a gorgeous garden outside! Both of these spots are seeing some price increases. Here’s the breakdown of the changes!
There are price increases on almost everything at Kabuki Cafe.
The Kakigōri Japanese Shaved Ice increased in price from $4.50 to $5.50, with the addition of a Sweet Milk Topping bringing it up to $7.00 instead of the previous $5.50. The Sake Mist Alcoholic Shaved Ice increased from $9.00 to $10.00, and Chilled Edamame will now be $4.50 instead of $4.00.
Sushi at this spot got price increases across the board, with the California Roll increasing from $5 to $6, the Spicy Roll also jumping from $5 to $6, and the Nigiri Combo going from $5.50 to $6.50.
For beverages, the Hot Chocolate jumped from $3.29 to $3.75, POWERade® saw a big increase from $3.75 to $4.69, and other assorted bottled beverages are now $4.50 instead of $3.50.
Alcoholic Beverages all increased in price as well, with Kirin Ichiban – Draft jumping from $8 to $9, Kirin Frozen – Draft going from $8.25 to $9.25, and Sapporo Premium – Bottle from $7.75 to $9.00.

Sake is also more expensive now, with Nigori Sake at $9.50 instead of its previous $8.50, Cold Sake going from $7 to $8, and Hot Sake from $7 to $8 as well.
Whew! That’s a lot of price jumps! Almost every jump was at least a dollar more than the previous price. Let’s take a look at the Katsura Grill, located just around the corner, also in the Japan Pavilion.
Katsura Grill is a Quick Service restaurant that serves sushi, noodles, and other dishes.
Some of the price increases here are smaller than the ones at Kabuki Cafe, and not everything on the menu was affected! Let’s look at the food first.

On the recommended menu, the Shrimp and Chicken Teriyaki is now served with mixed vegetables instead of a garden salad, and it’s jumped from $14 to $15. The Chicken Cutlet Curry also replaced its salad with mixed veggies and went from $13 to $14. The Chicken and Beef Teriyaki had the biggest increase so far, jumping from $12 to $16. And the Chicken Teriyaki went from $11 to $13. The Menchi Katsu Slider was removed from the menu at this location.
