Her name is Pat & she is great. I have spoken to her as well as emailed her.

Seems to be one disappointment after another and it feels like our plans are fated in the worst possible way. There isn't really an alternative to V & A's and had always wanted the occasion to eat there. Our wedding was going to be it. I feel so let down by two big negatives that I'm bordering on scrapping the whole Disney wedding idea as my complete vision of our holiday/wedding day has now been eradicated
But the best thing will be happening...the two of you having diner together as husband and wife.

Plan that special meal for a special occasion...you 50th wedding anniversary. It will be worth the wait. And many more things to talk and laugh about.

Hi Li Li I called up the restaurant direct to try and make a reservation (I was transfereed by Dis dining as apparently reservations are made direct with V&A, expect it's because V&A is not on the DPlan) and was advised of the closure by the cast member at V&A's ..... it probably hasn't been formally announced. He said they were updating the kitchen so it is temp, but unfortunately when we wanted to go!

Hi kassidysdad thanks so much for posting that info. I could easly select from those courses - we eat fish but not meat so there's good choice - and I would cheerfully eat my body weight in cheesecake!

Is that the usual menu that is on offer? if so it will suit us perfectly!

I've emailed and awaiting a response - expect the lady is off for the weekend. Just hoping, hoping, hoping that this option is available!!
