This article is for my fellow sushi lovers out there. When you are a fan of sushi you are always on a quest to find your favorite sushi spot, even if you already have a go to. I am kinda shocked that my favorite sushi ever is from right here at Disney World. One day I will hopefully make it out to Japan and change that statement though! So for all you fellow sushi fans out there, I am going to cover my favorite stops at Disney World for sushi.
By far the best sushi I have ever had is from this spot atop the Contemporary resort at Walt Disney World. Everything is so fresh it takes a whole new taste. We normally stick to the classic California roll and shrimp tempura combo. Keep an eye out for the seasonal stuff as well. Above is a peek at when I got to try an amazing crunchy lobster sushi roll.
The sushi here is on the appetizer menu but it’s so easy to make a meal of just the sushi offerings. Note that this spot is just open for dinner and brunch on Sundays. If you want to hear more on California Grill read our full review.
Okay so I must admit sushi presentation wasn’t the most stellar here but it was nice and tasty! They have a big spread of sushi options here. My husband was shocked to find a roll stuffed with his favorite, steak! So if you want plenty of options from classics to specialty rolls to nigiri they have it here. If you can’t get a reservation here just go next door to the Kona Island offers sushi for lunch and dinner in a casual setting in the upstairs lobby.
Sushi at a bowling alley? You might have just been expecting to find burgers and fries here but they actually have an awesome sushi lineup as well. If you like your sushi kicked up a few notches in the spice department then Splitsville has some great options for you. When we stopped in here we tried the spicy tuna and volcano roll. After his first bites of each, it was declared “FINALLY SPICY SUSHI” with a fist pump in the air! For our full review on Splitsville check out Splitsville Luxury Lanes at Disney Springs.
Here they have a great mix of sushi that is made fresh by their sushi chefs. They also have plenty of non sushi items on the menu if you are bringing along someone who doesn’t like it. If you time your reservation here for the late side you may even catch the fireworks out on World Showcase Lagoon. This dining location is open daily for lunch and dinner.
It’s no surprise the Iron Chef has some delicious sushi to serve up. Here you can find favorites like the Spider Roll with tempura soft shell crab, spicy mayo, and asparagus; Eel and Avocado Roll, and the Spicy Salmon Roll. If you are up for a show head to the limited seating at the sushi bar at Morimoto Asia. Be sure to check out our full Morimoto Asia Dining Review.
This is a much lesser known spot over at the Swan hotel! It actually has the largest sushi selection out of all the restaurants on property at Disney World. Be warned if you have a non-sushi lover in tow it’s pretty much strictly a sushi-only menu here. As well, Kimonos requires advanced reservations and is not included on Disney’s Dining Plan.

I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
