I saw early on this thread that the restroom is not inside Victoria and Albert's. Which restroom do you use and where is it in relation to the restaurant? Thanks!!

They're inside the restaurant, just not adjacent to the dining room - they're off of the lobby/podium area.
If you're doing the chef's table, this means you'll need to cross through the dining room to use them.

This is correct. Keep in mind that even the main dining room is a fairly small section so its not a very long walk anyway.

The QV room also comes with some French tableside service moments. A few of the dishes will be plated (and sometimes even cooked) right in front of you.

I enjoy both experiences tremendously, but the QV room is more romantic whereas the Chef's Table is more interesting.

The only thing that bums me out about the QV room is that if our favorite servers have been requested for the Chef's Table that night, they won't be able to serve us in the QV room. But they do usually find time to bring in one dish so we can say hi

For anyone who has done V&A as a solo, do you recommend it? Would you do it again?

I'll have 2 nights between my DM's departure and my DBF's arrival. Neither is interested in V&A's, so I wondered about doing it solo.

I've done it... they make you feel very comfortable. I'd do it. Especially if it is something that you want to do and the others don't.

Wine Pairing for Only One of Us

My husband and I are going to the World in August 2013 for our 5th anniversary and I'm hoping to make it a super special/romantic trip.

I've already told him that we're doing V&A and I'm hoping we can get Chef's Table for the night we plan.

My question is in regards to the wine pairings. My DH can't have any alcohol at all, and I know they can arrange that in the dishes without a problem. My issue is that I would like the wine pairing, but obviously DH can not join me. I'm assuming it's ok for one of us to have the Pairing and the other not to, but I just want to confirm this.

No problem. On our last V&A visit in March, we only had a wine pairing for one.

All the best.

Has anyone actually been upgraded from the wait list for the Chef's Table? When I called 180 days before our trip, the entire week of Chef's Table had already been booked. I grabbed seats in QV room and got waitlisted for Chef's Table.

Anything can happen, but getting off the waitlist for the CT is a rarity. DH works at the World and runs into Israel a lot and an empty CT never happens, and it not being booked 180 days in advance is getting really rare (as is someone cancelling)

Just so I have clarification you can book the chef's table 180+10 days in advance if you have a WDW resort reservation? Now does that 180+10 days begin at the beginning of your stay (meaning can you call 190 days from the first day of your reservation for your entire stay or do you have to call each day 190 days in advance and see if you can get it?)

It's 190 days from the day of the restaurant reservation. You have to call each day, if you don't get it on the first try.
