WDW Magazine - - Content - BY SARAH EVANS

In­side the Grand Florid­ian Re­sort and Spa is one of the high­est rated restau­rants in the coun­try. Vic­to­ria & Al­bert’s has re­ceived AAA’S Five Di­a­mond Re­ward, as well as many other recog­ni­tions and re­wards. Vic­to­ria & Al­bert’s is one of the best restau­rants in the Southeast, and is great for adults and older fam­i­lies. While chil­dren can dine at the restau­rant, it is more de­signed and aimed to­wards adults.

In­side Vic­to­ria & Al­bert’s are three sep­a­rate din­ing rooms that guests can ex­pe­ri­ence. The din­ing rooms of­fer dif­fer­ent menus, each more in­ti­mate than the last. The Main Din­ing Room is the first one you will see when you walk in­side the restau­rant. Guests who dine in the Main Din­ing Room can ex­pect su­perb ser­vice with two wait­ers serv­ing you through­out the evening. Guests will be able to in­dulge in a seven-course prix fixe menu, which in­cludes ev­ery­thing from cold to hot ap­pe­tiz­ers, to a fill­ing main course, and round­ing out with two desserts. The din­ing room it­self has some of the most gor­geous, or­nate dec­o­ra­tions any­where on prop­erty. Com­plete with white linens, an in­ti­mate four­teen ta­bles, a beau­ti­fully hand-painted dome, and fine china—and on top of all that, guests are en­ter­tained with soft mu­sic from a harpist through­out as they dine.

If you want an even more in­ti­mate ex­pe­ri­ence, guests can dine in the Queen Vic­to­ria’s Room. Queen Vic­to­ria’s Room only al­lows for eight din­ers to be seated at a time, and is per­fect for those cel­e­brat­ing a spe­cial oc­ca­sion and look­ing for a lit­tle more privacy. There, guests will find a ten course prix-fixe menu, ex­clu­sive wine pair­ings, and more spe­cial­ized ser­vice from the wait staff. The din­ing room is in­spired by the Old Word din­ing rooms of Lon­don and France for a truly oth­er­worldly ex­pe­ri­ence.

The most in­ti­mate and amaz­ing din­ing op­tion at Vic­to­ria & Al­bert’s how­ever, is the Chef’s Ta­ble, where din­ers are given the op­por­tu­nity to dine in the kitchen. While en­joy­ing up to thir­teen di­verse cour­ses, guests can get an up-close view­ing of the work­ings be­hind-the-scenes in this first class kitchen. The chef chats with guests and ex­plains how things are done through­out the course of the meal. Wine pair­ings are also avail­able with each course.

With such a high-class din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, there is a dress code. Men must wear a sports coat

with dress slacks and shoes (ties are op­tional). Women may wear a cock­tail dress, a nice dress, a pantsuit, or a skirt and blouse. Jeans, shorts, capris, san­dals, flip-flops, and ten­nis shoes are not al­lowed. Guests also re­ceive spe­cial gifts af­ter their din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

If you are look­ing for a one-of-a-kind mem­o­rable evening of din­ing, make sure you check out Vic­to­ria & Al­bert’s!
