    I've been thinking about booking this for us in September. I fancy dressing up for a change

    My problem is DH is very fussy, as Slowhand and uscwest already know and I'm worried it will be a waste of money.

    You couldn't possibly believe how fussy I am Seriously, I have never eaten vegetables/salads etc, ever, at all, in any way. Don't do pastas, don't do most seafood but the things I DO like, I want done the way I want them done and I want them to be really good.

    The first time I went, i was extremely nervous about how much I'd be able to eat but I thought I'd go for the occasion and the others would enjoy it.

    Anyway, the server asked me if there was anything special or that I didn't like I should tell them, so erm, I did half an hour later I'm sure they wished they hadn't asaked but they practically redid the whole menu for me.

    Ever since then, my preferences have been recorded there so they know what I like and I don't.

    They do try and get a real variety on there so that there's something for everyone and they don't have a problem with mixing things around. Again, sometimes the seafood course just has nothing I want so I'll have two of the meat options instead.

    The other good thing is, all this is decided at the start of the dining and the menu decided so it's a few moments of feeling like I'm causing trouble then the next few hours are taken care of.

    I really enjoy it even though they seem to have changed the water from Evian to "something else" which isn't as nice. (I did say I was fussy )

    Certainly don't recommend it and when I was very very very very young they used to try and get me to eat them. I remember in school having doctors try their best but in the end I was just sick all the time so they ended up giving up. VERY VERY VERY rarely I'll smell a salad and have a feeling like I need to eat it but then I feel sick if I try so :/

    I've had better food in better restaurants over the years, I should own up to that but so far in the Orlando area, and DEFINITELY in the Disney area, it stands on its own in my experience as being by far the best.

    It's better now they don't play games either. The servers used to insist on being called Victoria and Albert.

    I really felt it was an unjustified silliness not worthy of the place so it's a lot nicer now they're actual people with actual proper names.

    It's a complete oasis really with a very different feel to any other dining on site.

    I'm not fussy like Keith.

    But, based on my experience there, I'm sure that V&A would do everything they possibly could to make sure Chris and you both had a delightful meal and a wonderful experience.

    In my personal opinion, I've never enjoyed a meal anywhere as much as I enjoyed V&A. My DW and I celebrated our anniversary there several years ago and it was truly a memorable occasion!

    This is located in the Grand Floridian hotel. It's Prix Fixe. Prices begin at $125 per guest with wine pairings beginning at $60 per guest.

    And in my opinion, it's worth every penny.

    me? picky? NEVER! :tongue:

    Yeah it's an experience for sure. Takes us a good three hours for the full sitting and yet I've never felt like it took a long time which is strange. The time just flies.

    I did feel a bit ill one time when we'd ordered wine pairings, DW decided she didnt want hers and then we'd been gifted a bottle of champagne as well. I had a "well the wine pairings won't amount to much" thought which was very very inaccurate

    As has been said Wendy, they will go out of their way to ensure that your DH won`t go hungry!
    You MUST give it a try. [It`s just a shame that we won`t be there at the same time as you or we could join you...I`d ask for a burger, and Chris could ask for fries! ]
