Victoria and Albert’s is my favorite fine dining restaurant thus far. It’s a different level of Disney class, located in Orlando, Florida inside Disney’s Grand Floridian resort. Reservations must be made via Disney dining 180 days in advance to secure a spot. Because the dinners are nearly 3 hours long, they have limited availability.
We have dined at Alinea in Chicago – one of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants with three Michelin stars. While dinner at Alinea was full of surprises and creative artistic works of beautifully plated food that blew us away, the value vs. proportion makes us hesitant to go there again. As amazing as it was, we decided that it was a once-in-a-lifetime-experience.
But Victoria and Albert’s is a place I’ll eat over and over again when I have the chance. This is the second time that David and I had the pleasure of dining here. It is $185 per person, but the entire experience is worth it. You leave feeling happy and satisfied with both the food and service. No details are missed and everything is well thought-out. Our server welcomed us with personal menus and a cocktail on the house. The ambiance was lovely with a harp player stringing romantic Disney songs. We celebrated our recent engagement and Kevin and Katherine’s upcoming wedding.
The ladies received a rose at the end of dinner with baked goodies and a personalized keepsake menu. No one left hungry. We were ready to embark on our Disney Cruise the next day!
