    Hi! My husband and I are going to Disney World this December to celebrate his 40th birthday and our 10th anniversary! Trying to decide if the Deluxe Dining Plan is a good fit, or if we should just pay out of pocket. Do you know if Takumi-Tei accepts DDP?

    Hello Renee! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! My family and I celebrated my 40th birthday at the Most Magical Place on Earth just about two years ago. It was perfect! Also, best wishes for a happy anniversary during your visit!

    Planning our Disney Dining reservations is just about as fun as planning which parks and attractions we are going to enjoy! This is particularly important when planning on celebrating a special occasion, or in your case, two special occassions! My wife and I enjoy exploring the many Disney Dining locations, but have always found the standard Disney Dining Plan to be sufficient in meeting all of our needs. The Disney Deluxe Dining Plan turned out to be a little too much food for us! We also found it to be a bit of a struggle to enjoy the parks while trying to make it to so many table-service restaurants and eat big meals throughout the day.

    Takumi-Tei is a great choice for a birthday or anniversary celebration! This restaurant in Epcot's Japan Pavilion is absolutely beautiful. Regardless of which of the five dining rooms you select, you will find yourself dining in the beauty of the natural elements of our world. Nice choice! Unfortunately, at the present time, this restaurant does not accept the Disney Dining Plan. However, if you choose to dine here, please be sure to take advantage of the 180-day in advance booking benefit as Takumi-Tei is a very popular restaurant in Epcot! Also, don't forget to mention that you are celebrating a special occassion when booking your reservation. Disney Dining Cast Members always enjoy making celebrations extra special!
