We were at Epcot earlier this week, just before the Yakitori House closed for a 3 month refurbishment on August 10th. A friend was there tonight and took some photos, thanks to SB for the pictures!
Apparently the refurbishment was waiting until the Kabuki Cafe opened (we have photos and video of it here along with a Magic Kingdom update).
Yakitori House closed:
The Japan Food and Wine Festival kiosk was brought out neary 2 months early, in order to serve guests. The items aren't traditional Food and Wine Festival meals, but a few of the full meals that are served in the Yakitori House plus sushi. I'm not sure what will happen when the Food and Wine Festival starts!
The Yakitori House is set to re-open on or around November 15th (and I've no idea what they are doing as far as a refurb!)
We plan to have a Magic Kingdom update by the end of the weekend – plus hopefully the Enchanted Tiki Room before heading out to the D23 Expo.
