Men must wear dinner jackets with dress pants or slacks and shoes. Ties are optional. Women may wear a cocktail dress, nice dress, dressy pant suit or a skirt with a blouse.

It does state gentlemen should wear a jacket. We took a suit for my husband last year when he went. If unsure I would probably call them and ask.

My main concern is the heat! Not inside the restaurant obviously but I certainly dont want to have to go straight from V&As back to our hotel to change. I fear a suit in that heat would be far too much to do anything afterwards!

They are strict. And if you show up without a suit coat they will give you one from a closet and it won't necessarily be something you want to wear. (My idiot coworker found this out the hard way, he decided to "ignore" the advice of our hosts. )

You also have to have appropriate footwear. (i.e, no flip flops, no tennis shoes, men in sandals etc..)

Make a night of it. Go from VA to either the boardwalk night clubs or DTD for some adult beverages and fun. You look great and can cab it home if you don't want to use Disney transport.

Do you have a lightweight sports coat you could wear? Maybe pair it with some summer slacks? Just a thought....

We are actually getting married earlier that day, for the wedding I will be wearing slacks and a white linen shirt. If I could just throw a light jacket/blazer over the top in the evening I guess that might be ok

When I've gone with men who didn't have a jacket or sports coat they were loaned to them. The guys were like you they didn't want to pack a jacket for one night. The loaners were always navy or black blazers and perfect for the evening.

Do you have to wear the jacket all evening or can you hang it over the back of your chair?

You will be asked to put it on if you take it off.

What I do is I bring my suit attire with me as a change of clothes in a small carry on bag and then the minute I arrive at Magic Kingdom that morning, I store it in the lockers they have near the entrance to the park, and then at the end of my day, when I'm ready to leave MK and head on over to V&A's, I pick it up, and I change in the very nice rest room they have adjacent to V&A's at the Grand Floridian.

I'm certainly not going to be wondering around the park all day long in a suit.

You're allowed to leave your jacket off in the kitchen at the Chef's Table, but must put it back on if you have to walk out into the main DR - to take a break, go to the bathroom, etc.
