    AJ, are you going to do a review while you’re in the World next week? If not, I think I can squeeze it in on Sunday, Dec. 11, and get you a review ASAP.

    we used to really like grabbing a bite at the Yakitori house, and I am glad this will open before I get there. EPCOT has great sit down places but I am always looking for a quick service place with international flavors.

    They better not have messed with my Tonosama Combination plate. It was my fav meal at any quick service dining location in all of WDW. ;.;

    Melissa Sue — I’m going to try to get there around the 10th! Will keep you updated!

    Lori — Agreed! I liked Yakitori a lot. Interested to try this spot.

    Armand — Ha !! Fingers crossed!

    Ryan — Woo!!

    Make that three for the 10th! This may interrupt my planned Cupcake Crawl but my crazy nephew hates chocolate; might abandon cupcakes for this! Disney is my hands-down favorite place to eat sushi, so I’m really excited!!

    December 7th???? Does no-one at Disney own a calendar? This is in extremely poor taste. This will be the 65th anniversary of PEARL HARBOR!!! Someone deserves to get fired over this.

    My family suffered greatly in that war, and I take offense at this.

    When you go for lunch can you please let us know if there is a child menu? We will be down in May and I have 2 children that LOVE LOVE LOVE sushi.

    My last name is Van Valkenburgh – the name of the last Commanding Officer of the Arizona when it went down in Pearl. I honestly don’t think that anyone at Disney was making a political statement when they decided to open the eatery on that day especially considering the amount that Walt Disney himself did for our troops during WWII. I think that more than likely Disney World is just trying to get all of the kinks worked out on their newest eatery before the mad Christmas rush.
