Thanks for the reassurance!! My son will be extremely happy...

Me and DH had our last night dinner there when we H-mooned in '98. The food there was amazing, but our favorite story from our trip (besides me getting felt up by Pluto...) involved the music. While we waited in between courses we played a little "name that tune" with what the harpist was playing. She was playing some more modern stuff, Eric Clapton, Sting, etc. Then she started playing a song that we couldn't figure out right away.

DH's O-face was priceless when he figured out she was playing "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd.

Though I have not been yet we have ressies for Sept for our 19'th anniversary. We decided on the Queen Victoria room over the Chef table because we thought a small, quite dining room would be more romantic then a loud bright kitchen w/lot's of employees working hard. They are both the same cost. Menu Prix Fixe $200.00 per Guest. Wine Pairings $95.00 per Guest. Is it worth it??? well that's up to you. We figured w/ tip we will spend about $700. Pretty pricey but for dinner and a night of entertainment it's worth it for us.

Oh I would have loved that Pink Floyd is my fave.

I've loaded my Iphone pictures to my site arrivalwdw.shutterfly.com. They are not very good, but at least I have something. I even have a pic of the six desserts on our table. LOL!

The harpist's selections provided a lot of amusement to my girlfriends and me during our dinner. None of them are Disney people, but all commented about how fine yet unstuffy the whole experience was.

YES if you like fine dining. After we ate there I looked at my boyfriend and said I want to go here once a year and if it means that I never eat out at another restaurant again in order to afford it, fine. It would have been worth it.

We are going in Sept!

Oh and LeBernadin in NYC cost us over $700 for the meal w/ wine pairings. Ohhhh yum but it still wasn't as good as V&A

I think what works so well is the actual pairing. We had a cold cantelope soupy thing (technical term) and the wine went so perfectly with it. I felt like Remy in ratatoullie when he described how food tasted, how it just explodes in your mouth like a symphony. We took a bite and took a sip and it was like the 181 oveture.

I will post the actual title of the course and the wine when I dig out the menu. I am sure if wasn't Fess Parker but whatever it was....oh my!

Just booked the Queens room for 9-29 I didn't tell me DBF he knows that we are going just not that I booked the Queens room. He is retiring from the Coast Guard after 28 years so I want to do something special!

Quick ?

Are they still calling to reconfirm and discuss any dietary needs? My reservation is next Monday and DW is pregnant so alot of the fish items are out for her, plus I am a total seafood/fish no go type of person. I know ---. coo-coo. My poor DW is such a seafood lover it drives her mad sometimes. I will take her out to any fish restaraunt she may like but there is no way it is to be cooked inside the house.

They call....but......

I am not a fish person either but the way they cook fish is not like any fish I have had anywhere else in my life. I would seriously eat anything they put in front of me.

Harpist

First - I am getting so excited!!! Our trip begins this Thursday

I am pretty sure V&A will be calling me today, to confirm our reservation this week. My DH and I will be celebrating our 3rd Wedding Anniversary, and I thought, I could suprise him, by having the Harpist play our wedding song.

I am sure they would accomodate, has anyone else requested such?

Our song is Woman by John Lennon.

Now, I just have to think when I want it played....

You could of course ask for a song from the harpist. If she knows it she may accommodate you. I remember my friend asking for Send In The Clowns. But I think you should ask her directly, it won't be much use to ask whoever calls you on the phone.
