Today we’re taking a look at one of Disney’s hidden gems. This gem is a lesser-known EPCOT dining location, Garden House.
Guests can find Garden House in the Japan Pavilion within EPCOT’s World Showcase. This is a smaller dining location, but it can be found next to Katsura Grill and across from Mitsukoshi Department Store.
Quick Service or Table Service?
Garden House is a Quick Service dining location. This means that Guests can walk up and order without a reservation. This kiosk sells refreshing alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for Guests looking to sip on Japanese favorites.
Garden House is a quaint dining location, but the surrounding atmosphere will make you feel as though you’ve left EPCOT and arrived in Japan. Peaceful gardens surround this restaurant, and outdoor seating is available next to Katsura Grill.
This restaurant offers an assortment of delicious drinks and cocktails, but we absolutely love the Violet Sake. Other unique drinks include the Kirin Frozen Draft, the Blood Orange Lemonade, and the Tokyo Sunset. Currently, the Garden House menu is unavailable on Disney’s website or the My Disney Experience app, so we’ve provided it below.
