    My husband booked a last minute trip for the two of us to get away. We'll be at the Swan from 2/12 through 2/15. This is my first trip in 15 years without the kids! I want to book a great dinner, preferably seafood, great wine is a must. Where do you think I can still get in? Any chance of V&A or Cali Grill? Any recommendations? I can't wait to call tomorrow.

    Flying Fish and Fultons are just fantastic for seafood! Jiko has great wine and the filet is incredible

    We at a great meal at Il Mulino at the Swan a few weeks ago. They have a very extensive wine list, and a much larger menu than Disney restaurants.

    Todd English's Blue Zoo at the Dolphin has great reviews and it will be close if you are at the Swan.

    When you call........ask the CM what is available and go from there......You never know if they will be so booked that some will not be available. When we did a spur of the moment trip in September ....we were only able to get on reservation for the whole week. GOOD LUCK and let us know

    How did you make out? That is a very busy weekend so I'd be surprised if you had any luck at all.

    I bet if you go at an "off" time you'll be able to get CG but V&A I'm not sure. How much fun - just DH and you! Have a great time!

    thanks to all who responded. We wanted to get as much seafood as possible, as one of my boys is severely allergic to shellfish, so we usually avoid the seafood places. As expected, places like V&A were booked, and CG had one opening 2/12 at 9:45 so we wound up with Fulton's on 2/12, Shula's on 2/13 and Bluezoo on 2/14. Can't wait to go!
