I can't decide between the different experiences. It seems to be that in the main room its more food and fewer variety, whereas the other rooms its lots of small things. I would like to try as many things as possible.

Any advice?

TIW or DDP

While searching some posts, I could swear I saw one that compared using the DDP or TIW at V & As. Could anyone help guide me where this is? I've been looking for over an hour now! Thanks!

V&A doesn't take the DDP. In the dining room, they take TiW; at Chef's Table, they don't.

We have an ADR for V&A at the Dining Room next month. This meal will be covered by our Platinum Dining Plan. We were told when we made the reservation that we have the option to upgrade to other dining tiers using our plan's allowance($125/pp)

Yes. The Platinum Plan is accepted at V&A.

However, it will only cover the base meal in the Dining Room. If you get any of the extra-cost options, such as the caviar or Kobe Beef, etc., or the wine pairings, that is all extra.

And if you do the Chef's Table or Queen Victoria Room the Platinum Plan will only cover the first $125 of the bill (per eligible person).

They say the recipe for Sprite is lemon and lime, but I tried to make it at home....There's more to it than that!

Just made our reservation for our upcoming anniversary in December. When we got married at Disney 2 years ago, we dined at V & A's the day after our wedding, and said we would make it an every other year affair. Well, we're coming up on year two

Thank you for the reminder. My DH and I have already talked about these additional charges once we had decided to dine at V&A. We plan to splurge with one Kobe and one Wagyu($35+$80) We also plan to share the wine pairings. I hope that sharing our wine is not going to be "tacky"(I'm not much of a wine drinker) How many glasses of wine will there be? Is it going to be a four ounce or two ounce pour each?

It is not "tacky" to split the wine pairings. Actually I think they are five ounce pours (other than the Cheese course, where you get Port in a smaller pour). And there is one glass per course .

I couldn't read this entire thread so maybe this has been asked before but has anyone done V&A while pregnant?? I booked it then found out I'm pregnant and I will be about 22 weeks along at the time of going there. There are certain things I can't eat (raw/rare meat, soft cheeses, etc) and man, does it make me sad! Normally I would eat anything V&A puts on my plate but being pregnant there are limitations.

I'm definitely going to call them to make them aware of my situation.. just wondered if anyone has experience with this. I'm SO sad I can't eat any soft cheeses! boo! I'm sure V&A has some amazing ones!

I will be dining at Victoria & Alberts in October with some very good friends, and am really excited!! Just a couple of questions..........

Is the Kobe beef option ordered at the dinner or does that need to be added now? Is the cost $35 or $100? I have seen both posted.

Also, what other options are provided in substitution for the cheese course, if someone does not eat raw / cold cheese?

There were two beef upcharge items on the menu at different prices. I fished out an old menu from 2008 where an Australian "Kobe" was $35 and the Japanase Wagyu was $80. Since those were 2008 prices, I'd assume the prices would be higher now.

There were pork, lamb and veal options included in that course if you didn't want to pay the upcharge.

I have never done any substitutions on the cheese course. If there was a cheese I didn't like, I didn't eat it. The alternative option to the cheese course is usually a gelato.

Utoh!

We are in so much trouble!

My uncle was a CM in 1996 with Disney's College Program. He recently died but not before trying to get us reservations for the Chef's Table as a wedding present for our wedding in November.
After the funeral, I was talking to my aunt as she told the story of how she tried to get us reservations with my uncle dutifully watching her and telling her what to do, but wasn't certain about how to go about it. She was also worried that it would get in the way of my plans (me plan...never! ) and if I would be able to find a day to do this. Needless to say my DF and I were floored! <-I kid you not...his face looked like this! I told her I would make time, but also explained that the Chef's Table is usually booked easily 180 days out...(we're at 89 until we leave)
The next day I called, explained my story. Was told that the Chef's Table was booked until February! BUT we were able to get in on the guest list for everyday except the wedding for the Chef's Table. (Here is to hoping) We did get into the Queen Victoria Room instead. Either way, the thoughts and love behind it and the fact that we are going mean the world to us!

With that being said...I'm pretty certain we are both excited more about V&A then we are the wedding at this point!

My aunt asked that we take pictures...I'm hoping this isn't inappropriate.
(I plan on doing it either way...until they tell me to stop...it was her request and I plan to fulfill it...)

Now, after reading this thread...We are in some serious trouble. We find that with all things that we love about Disney...there are a few things that stick out to us that we always keep going back for. This sounds like it is going to be one of them! Which means any trip we take...We're just going to make sure we have an extra $400 plus tip to add to the overall total of the trip...
