Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is home to some of Walt Disney World’s most renowned restaurants, and while some are still closed, others are undergoing exciting new enhancements.
Narcoossee’s is scheduled for a refurbishment later this year, and fans are still waiting for news on the Garden View Tea Room and 1900 Park Fare. Earlier today, however, the Disney Parks Blog shared an update on the return of one of Walt Disney World’s most notable dining experiences, Victoria & Albert’s.
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is currently working through preparations to reopen this AAA Five Diamond restaurant. Victoria & Albert’s is set to reopen next month, on July 28, 2022, and reservations will be available for the location very soon beginning June 20, 2022.
Victoria & Albert’s offers Guests the ultimate high-end dining experience as Florida’s only restaurant to hold both the AAA Five Diamond Award and the Forbes Travel Guide Five Star Award. Outside of Florida, Victoria & Albert’s is only joined by 28 other establishments with this same distinction.
In addition to newly reimagined menu items, Victoria & Albert’s will reopen with a refreshed space, showcasing the resort’s Victorian setting with new murals and wall coverings hinting at a more whimsical garden-inspired decor.
Just as the restaurant offered prior to its closure, the private Queen Victoria’s Room and the Chef’s Table will once again offer exclusive experiences for Guests looking to take their dinner to the next level.
All Guests dining at Victoria & Albert’s have the option of pairing dinner with wines from the restaurant’s collection of over 500 selections, and new for its reopening, menu pairings with zero-proof cocktails are also available.
For eats, the Chef’s Tasting Menu will continue to change seasonally and will showcase elegant and fresh dishes like Colorado Lamb with pickled blueberry and violet mustard and line-caught turbot with fennel fondue, and Pernod beurre blanc. The restaurant will also offer Wagyu A-5 Miyazaki with sauce romesco and potato rösti.
Dessert brings a delicious treat for chocolate lovers with the Spectrum of Chocolate, an ombré featuring specialty sourced chocolates with accents of buttermilk, Grand Marnier, and vanilla.
Everything on the new menu is a creation by Victoria & Albert’s Chef de Cuisine Matthew Sowers, whose culinary experience with Disney includes curating menus for Remy with aboard the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy with Disney Cruise Line.
Pastry Chef Kristine Farmer is currently the lead pastry chef at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, with her work found in the resort’s signature restaurants, Disney’s Fairytale Weddings, and even the annual gingerbread house during the holidays.
The new menu was also overseen by Executive Chef Kevin Chong and Culinary Director, Chef Scott Hunnel, with wine pairings expertly matched by Sommelier Israel Perez.
Disney has also shared updated pricing for Victoria & Albert’s:
Although subject to change, the prix-fixe menu begins at $295.00 per Guest. Optional wine pairings start at $150.00 per Guest. Zero-proof pairings start at $110.00 per Guest.
