Thank you so much for posting these fabulous pictures! DH and I will be celebrating my 50th B-day at V&A's next month...our first time eating there. But probably not the last (now that we're empty-nesters!)

This concludes the picture report....

Chris (Asst Mgr) and Scott (Chef) both stopped by to see how we enjoyed our mean on Jun 11 - DS20 announced that "I could die today, and die happy. And I am only 20." The meal was exceptional.

As usual - wonderful pictures! Thank you!

You had some of the same dishes we had in May. I almost died (happy) at my first bite of the pork.

We are currently trying to talk ourselves out of scheduling another visit in October. Once I figured V&A was not that much more then the Chefs Counter at Flying Fish, it almost seems a bargain. I love Disney math!

Don't forget the "magic multiplier" in Disney Math - TiW 20% discount in the main dining room.

It does seem so much easier to go more often when only paying for one or two!

Thanks for the amazing pictures!! I will be at V & A's for the very first time 8/21, my birthday! It will actually be my first fine dining experience, ever. I'm excited and sort of nervous too.

Congratulations! I wish you a wonderful wedding and a wonderful meal! And of course, many happy and healthy years together!

I went to V&A 2 years ago with my daughter. I had planned a solo visit to WDW over my birthday. My H, who doesn't really like Disney (yeah, I know - how could I have ended up with him?), told me the other day that he had been a little jealous that we were going. And then he said, "You can't be alone on your birthday. Book Victoria & Albert, and I'll come down for it. I don't know how many days, but I really want to do this." So I get to do V&A again!

wow! everything looks so fantastic! my hubby and I are going to V&A for the first time in October and we are sort of "foodies" so we are very excited!

A few questions for you:

1. Do you get to choose what you eat or do you just sit and they serve you? Are there pre-planned menus (like the whole menu is fixed?) or do you choose each and every setting?

2. I found out between when we made the reservation and now that I am pregnant! so there are certain things I can't eat like raw meats/soft cheeses/etc. I should definitely give them a call and make them aware of this fact right? LOL.. this isn't so much a question as I know I should (and am) going to call them. Guess I just wondered how V&A works for a pregnant person! I'll have to let you know I suppose!

thanks!

You get a menu with three choices for each course, and you select each course, including dessert. When we were there, we had to choose all the courses at the same time.

They called me about 10 days before our reservation, and asked if we had any issues, etc. I am allergic to shellfish and my d doesn't eat fish, so we had different choices on various courses. You can let them know, and they will be happy to accommodate you.

And congratulations!
