I am really excited because we were able to get the Chef's Table in November on my birthday!!! Really looking forward to this one! We have eaten in the Queen Victoria room before, but this will be our first time at the Chef's Table!

Thank you both! I'm glad to see that they do differentiate between 'dressy' sandals and other sandals.

So excited - made my ADR for 11/4 this week. Table for two in the QVR @ 6pm. Chef's Table was already reserved but I was asked if we'd like to be on the wait list in case it opens up (of course I said yes).

Looking forward to ten courses of deliciousness!

Am I the only lightweight that was smashed with the Wine Pairing?

I am so tempted to go again. It was such a magical dining experience. I can't imagine how fantastic the chef's table would be. I recall reading a family's experience on Christmas eve at the Chef's Table. It was beautiful!

They will call you a week before. If you have allergies or things you absolutely won't eat, tell them. They will offer you at least 2 or 3 choices for each course (except the amuse).

DM, DD and I were quite happy at the end of the evening. None of us cared for the sake, but we drank it anyway! We are wine drinkers, so having wine throughout the meal isn't a problem. However, if they had paired any wines with dessert we would have all been in trouble. We paced ourselves pretty well.

It may be that I am just worn out and that I am just missing it, but I have a question.

What is the difference between the main dining room and the Queen Victoria room? Is it worth the up charge?

Thanks =)

The QVR is the same menu as the Chef's Table - 10 courses instead of six, usually. It's served in a small, private room off the main dining room - just 4 tables.

I don't think I'm a lightweight, but, yeah, the wine pairing in the QVR left me pretty well hammered. I did drink DW's sake pairing, although in the grand scheme of things it wasn't the deciding factor.

The QVR has only 4 tables and features tableside preparation of some of the dishes. The tables are well spaced, so you can get a bit of solitude; the main dining room is a little more crowded. You get four more courses in the QVR (and at the Chef's Table) than you do in the main dining room. There are also fewer in-menu upcharges on the QVR menu; you get the Kobe-style beef included with the price, while the main dining room has it available for a $35 upcharge.

You also have to count in that in addition to the upcharge for QVR over the main dining room, the Tables in Wonderland Card is not accepted for QVR (or Chef's Table), so the final tally of the difference can be bigger than the list price.

As to whether it's worth it or not, I'd suggest you look over the sample menus and see if the greater number of courses will be worth it for you. And, perhaps, add in a less crowded, more intimate experience in the QVR as a possible selling point. You will not go wrong either way, but it will be a pricey dinner.

No I had to stop after the 4th course as I knew I had too much. I don't go for the wine pairing after that. As a side I am thinking of doing the Queen Victoria room for myself and my sister has anyone been there ?

DW and I were able to split a wine pairing when we went in Dec, 2010. We received a half glass of the appropriate wine with each course. Others have posted that this option is no longer available. Ask anyway...all they can do is say no.

If I'd attempted the entire wine paring myself, I would have been too. Since I know my limits, I split the wine pairing with DH, and we saved getting smashed for Epcot.

ETA: This was in Dec 2011 that we split the wine pairing. Instead of doing half pours with each of the 6 courses (main dining room), we got 3 full glasses each.

In regards to wine pairing, as horrible as it sounds (you know, with the whole "no wine left behind" motto....) I just don't finish each wine course. I find that there are only a few bites of each course anyway (especially in QVR) that I don't need to drink the whole glass.

I will admit I feel a twinge leaving that poor glass mostly full, but otherwise who knows what kind of scene may ensue!

As for the QVR, my husband and I have dined there as well as the main room, and I have to say I prefer the QVR. It has a more exclusive feel than the main dining room, and you get much more attention from the waitstaff. Also, the table side presentation is just fantastic.
