We will be going to V & A QV Room during our next stay. I was also concerned about the wine pairing. We are not big wine drinkers but we do enjoy it on special occasions. We are staying at the GF RPC but would still like to remember the experience .

This is what I would do: From Boardwalk, you have a few options. Bottom line is you want to get to Magic Kingdom. You can do this in several ways. The simplest is to take the bus from there. If you want to take the walk to the Epcot monorail, you can also do that, and from there it takes you to the Ticket and Transportation Center, and you take another monorail to Magic Kingdom. When you arrive you in Magic Kingdom, whether by bus or monorail, you then take the resort monorail (or the boat) to the Grand Floridian. And when you go home, you would just take the monorail to Magic Kingdom, and then the bus to the Boardwalk, that's easiest at that point and time.

And I wouldn't be too fond of using WDW transportation while being all dressed up--- And we stay at OKW...
DH and I were discussing it, and it didn't take one thing into consideration...I'm walking the boys over to the Beach Club for the kids' camp over there before going to the a Grand Floridian. So if using Disney transportation, DH and I decided we would take the boat from the Beach Club to DHS and then take the bus to the Grand Floridian. It's only one stop on the boat from BC to DHS and the. A bus to the GF. However, good point about not wanting to use Disney transportation while all dressed up. It's a bigger deal for DH since he will be in dress pants and carrying a sport jacket. I'll be in a sleeveless dress. I asked him about this and he was fine doing the boat and bus. At first he said we could just walk to DHS but I mentioned being dressed up and sweating from the walk before even going to dinner, and that the boat is only one stop from BC to DHS. So he said we should do that.

Sounds like not too much wine, DH said he probably could drive but I don't want to risk it.

Or just grab a cab after dinner. One to Pop Century was about $20 including tip and well worth it!

Taking Disney transport there was fun since I was able to pop in and get a photo in front of the floral Mickey in my dress. But I finished 5 minutes after the resort monorail closed for the night and I couldn't stand the thought of going to Downtown Disney and then waiting again for a bus to Pop.

We had a waitlist for an additional night come through for our trip to BCV in October. DW and I will return to V&A after a 4 year absence on that extra night. At this late date, we were surprised that we were able to get a reservation on a Friday night in the main dining room. I asked about the Chef's Table and the Queen Victoria's room and as expected, neither were available. I didn't think to ask at the time but can you be put on a waitlist for either room in case of a cancellation?

That's great! I've tried a few times to book the Chef's Table without success.

We are returning to V&A on December 4th. This will be our second visit; DH and I will be celebrating my 45th birthday, our 4th anniversary together, and my enormous new raise (25%!).

We are doing the main dining room - I can barely handle the amount of food there, so the extra courses of QVR/CT would be wasted on me. I'd be sick and in pain from that amount of food.
