Tokyo DisneySea – Magellan’s

Tokyo DisneySea - Mediterranean Harbor / Magellan's / Fortress Courtyard

Hidden within Fortress Explorations is Magellan’s – one of the most elaborately themed restaurants at Tokyo DisneySea.

Tokyo DisneySea - Mediterranean Harbor / Magellan's / Entrance

Magellan’s is classified as a fine dining restaurant at Tokyo DisneySea. However, there is no dress code, like other restaurants in the park.

Only set dinners were available in the evening, at time of visit.

Tokyo DisneySea - Mediterranean Harbor / Magellan's / Waiting Area

The waiting area, where we sat for mere seconds. From here alone, the visual detail of this venue is really rich.

Tokyo DisneySea - Mediterranean Harbor / Magellan's / Priority Seating Ticket

Our Priority Seating Ticket. We were actually late by 25 minutes (thanks to major misrepresentation of wait time at Journey to the Center of the Earth!!) but they let us in anyway.

Thankfully there were just a couple of empty tables around. After we sat down, the restaurant was full. If you really want to dine here, make a priority seating reservation (the book was almost full when we booked in the early afternoon).

Our table was at next to one of the pillars in the inner ring of the main hall. I don’t know how to explain, but we just have an unobstructed view of the amazing Globe:

My sister and I shared one of the dinner sets. There are 3 sets available, each with 4 courses. The price difference accounts for the Entree only. You are free to choose from a selection for the other courses. All sets come with free flow bread and drink. An additional free-flow drink is ¥‎300.

There are sets available for children too, at ¥‎1950 (recommended for children ages 10-12) and ¥‎1450 (recommended for children ages 9 or younger), though I’ve no idea what’s on the menu.

We shared the Pacific set (¥5500) and chose the Hors d’oeuvre Sampler, the Salad, Red Wine-Braised Beef Cheek and the day’s dessert, which is ice cream with a slice of cake. We also added an additional drink for ¥300. You can choose between hot or cold coffee and tea. I’m not sure if other options are available. Anyway it’s free flow – you can swap if you want. The cast members will also bring new glasses (and straws, if you have your drinks iced) – they don’t just refill them at your table.

The Hors d’Oeuvre Sampler. Sweet citrus jelly in the small glass.

Tokyo DisneySea - Mediterranean Harbor / Magellan's / Salad

Mesclun salad with cheese. Really nice.

Tokyo DisneySea - Mediterranean Harbor / Magellan's / Main Course, Beef

Red Wine-Braised Beef Cheek.

Tokyo DisneySea - Mediterranean Harbor / Magellan's / Dessert

And then there’s dessert.

The food is delicious, but I think most people don’t go to theme park restaurants, no matter how grand, for culinary reasons. It’s all for the experience and service, and Magellan’s is top notch.

Tokyo DisneySea - Mediterranean Harbor / Magellan's / Stairway

We dined at the main dining hall of Magellan’s. This is, in my opinion, the best venue. There are other rooms – a wine cellar (hidden behind bookshelves!), a circular room that’s quite plain. I’ve seen photos but I think they look quite cramped. The wine cellar definitely gets top marks for its cool factor.

Tokyo DisneySea - Mediterranean Harbor / Magellan's / Main Dining Hall

The walls in the main hall are lined with musical instruments, framed artifacts, tapestries, art and some odds and ends. I couldn’t take close-up photos as there are other diners around, but it just looks amazing.

Then of course, there’s the globe.

Tokyo DisneySea - Mediterranean Harbor / Magellan's / Wooden Cornice

A lot of wooden textures everywhere. It really doesn’t feel modern.

Tokyo DisneySea - Mediterranean Harbor / Magellan's / Globe detail

The globe doesn’t spin – that might blemish the ambiance of the restaurant. Did you know though, that this is right below the Chamber of Planets at Fortress Explorations?

I wonder too, if the mural of constellations is also “aligned” with the constellation chart in the Chamber of Planets.

Tokyo DisneySea - Mediterranean Harbor / Magellan's Lounge

Dining at Magellan’s is a wonderful and exquisite experience, but also an expensive one. If you wish to just peek inside (while taking a break), you can stop by the Lounge (the top level) and order a drink – alcoholic or non-alcoholic.
