2021 Shi Wasu Booth Menu at Festival of the Holidays

The Shi Wasu Japan booth menu returns for 2021 and has historically been one of the most popular. To get a bite of Japanese cuisine for the holidays, come early or prepare for long lines.

From Disney: “Please your palate with an array of festive dishes and drinks served at the Japan Pavilion.”

🍽️ ORDER UP: The Japan booth is a popular one at every festival, but we’re especially excited about that sushi tree and ALL the drinks (all four are NEW this year).

Chirashi Sushi Tree

  • Chirashi Sushi Tree; $6.50
    • Sashimi-grade tuna, salmon, ikura, and yellowtail with vegetables decorated on an artistic bed of rice to celebrate the holidays

WDW Magazine reporter Julie de la Fe’s review: I get nervous about raw fish at theme parks, but this one really surprised me. It did have a high rice-to-filling ratio, but otherwise, it is a good savory option.”

WDW Magazine Editorial Director, Rain Blanken: “Heck yeah, man, I’m eating sushi AND it looks like an adorable lil tree?? One downside here is that is is not a lot of sushi for the price. Do it for the gram, but if you truly have a hankerin’ for some sushi, Katsura Grill and Kabuki Cafe will give you much more for the money.”

New Year Celebration Soba

WDW Magazine Editorial Director, Rain Blanken: “A wabi-sabi wonderland in a bowl. First off, we were surprised by the sheer size of the bowl that was included! This is a soup you can share with a loved one in the true holiday spirit. But you’ll have to decide how much giving you’ll want to do, because there’s just one delectable shrimp tempura. I loved the broth, I loved the fish cakes (that’s what the swirly emoji is in your phone, people) and the noodles were just the right level of done… they didn’t stick together too much, a hallmark of well-made soba.”

Mont Blanc Tart Photo

  • Mont Blanc Tart; $6.00
    • Matcha mousse tart with a sweet red bean center sprinkled with konpeito sugar candy

WDW Magazine Editorial Director, Rain Blanken: “If you’re like me and you tried the berry version in 2020, you’re in for a bit of a culture shock. This year’s tart features signature Japan flavors, red bean and matcha. If you haven’t had these before, temper your expectations. This won’t be as sweet at last year’s tart, but I think this one has more value because you’re getting more of an authentic Japanese take on dessert!”

Chocolate Banana Boba

Chocolate Banana Boba

  • Cocoa, Japanese milky drink, banana syrup, and strawberry popping boba pearls

WDW Magazine reporter Julie de la Fe’s review: I didn’t know what to think about this one. First, the portion size is small. Second, there wasn’t much boba … Mine actually may have been stuck in the whip cream until I found it at the end. It wasn’t bad tasting, but I’d probably hold onto my festival budget for some of the many other great non-alcoholic beverages on offer!”
