We are locals (well, an hour from the parks) and I want to surprise my husband with dinner at V & A. My first question, about how long does the meal last? We will be leaving our little ones home with a sitter so we need to know how long we will be gone. I need to figure out if I should wait until I wean my 9 month old. Also, does it book up 180 days in advance, or do I have a shot at getting a reservation in early December? Thanks!
