Reservation for two

DH and I just booked our 2nd honeymoon to DW! We are west coasters, so we visit DL quite a bit more and always make dinner reservations for our favorite restaurant Blue Bayou at DL. Any suggestions for our *new* favorite restaurant at DW??

Closest thing you will find to a Blue Bayou atmosphere is San Angel Inn at Epcot.

The food is very different though, it's a Mexican restaurant (authentic Mexican, not Tex-Mex.)

According to the 2012 AAA list there are 43 restaurants in the United States rated with Five Diamonds.

Victoria and Albert's, in the Grand Floridian Resort, is one of them.

Go to www.victoria-alberts.com for more information. Also there is a long thread about V&A in the Restaurants Forum.
41 WDW Stays Totaling 321 nights between 1987 and mid-2003. (When "commuting" from Northern Virginia.)

A few very helpful links which are on DisBoards:

I was there last month and have to say I was really impressed with the Brown Derby in Hollywood studios. I went with my brother (an adult, not a kid)

He had
Cobb Salad
the stuffed chicken breast
creme brulee for dessert

I had
Crispy Phyllo Napoleon (with mushrooms)
Charred fillet of beef
Creme brulee for dessert

We both agreed it was the best meal we had at Disney.

Are you on the dining plan or paying OOP?

Great signature restaurants would be Citrico's, California Grill, and Hollywood Brown Derby

For 1 credits...I'd go with Kouzzina or Raglan Road

We enjoy Sanaa at AKL and Narcoossee's at GF. They're on our list of "not to miss" restaurants at WDW.

I would start by looking at the menus on Allears or WDWinfo to get a sense of what foods are available where. WDW has a wide range of food choices, so it's easy to find something good!
