Grand Floridian Resort & Spa Dining

Whether it's a romantic dinner for two in the intimate setting of a private boat, or a huge dinner buffet hosted by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, the restaurants at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa at Walt Disney World Resort provide an atmosphere and menu to satisfy any appetite.

The resort is home to six dining facilities, each with a distinct identity and decor. The restaurants do have one common feature: they all use the freshest and finest food available. The resort gets fresh seafood, meats and vegetables, including vine-ripened, hand-picked tomatoes, from local markets daily. Specialty foods, such as caviar, are selected from the best available in the international arena. The culinary staff also prides themselves on specializing dishes to cater to the dietary needs of their guests.

Victoria & Albert's

The crown jewel of the Grand Floridian's dining destinations is Victoria & Albert's, Central Florida's only five-diamond restaurant, awarded by AAA. Featuring American regional cuisine with classical influences, soft harp music fills the air as guests dine on fine china and imported crystal and silver. Servers provide personalized service to each of the restaurant's 15 tables during the gourmet dining extravaganza.

Menu offerings are prix fixe and feature the freshest regional products, complemented by world-class wines. Diners can choose from among a menu that's customized daily by Chef Scott Hunnel. It offers seven courses, including four signature entrees, and closes with soufflés and other exquisite desserts. A wine-pairing menu also is available.

In addition to superb personal attention, guests also receive take-home reminders of their special evening. After ordering, each receives a personalized menu, and ladies receive a long-stemmed red rose.

For the ultimate dining experience, guests can reserve a spot at the Chef's Table. Up to 10 guests a night are given royal, VIP treatment in the unique setting of Victoria & Albert's kitchen. After Hunnel personally consults with everyone at the table, guests can watch him and his culinary team create customized dishes. Wine enthusiasts also will appreciate the selection of wines that are specially paired with each course. In addition to the great food and atmosphere, this dining extravaganza throws in a few surprises to keep guests amused.

Victoria & Albert's boasts an extensive wine cellar -- one that has been recognized by Wine Spectator magazine with an "Award of Excellence." The restaurant also has earned several other honors, including a Mobil Travel Guide Four Star Rating and a place on Epicurean Rendezvous' list of top 25 most romantic restaurants.

1900 Park Fare

This buffet-style restaurant is the best place to see Disney characters at the Grand Floridian.

The restaurant's centerpiece is Big Bertha, a century-old band organ built in Paris and a focal point of a Grand Rapids, Mich., amusement park for many years. Installed 15 feet above the floor in a proscenium, the bellow instrument simultaneously plays pipes, drums, bells, cymbals, castanets and a xylophone.
