Price Increases Hit Disney World’s Most Expensive Restaurant

It’s been two years since Disney World’s historic closure and reopening, but things are finally starting to return to normal.

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort

Every Disney World Resort hotel has reopened, a ton of entertainment has resumed, and one of Disney World’s top-tier signature dining experiences, Victoria & Albert’s, will return on July 28th. However, it looks like you’ll be reaching even deeper into your wallet to dine here when it reopens.

Victoria & Albert’s was already among the most expensive (if not the most expensive) dining experiences in Disney World. Previously, the cheapest that you could eat here for was $185 but, upon reopening, it will be even more pricey — here’s what we’re seeing.

Victoria & Albert’s is an award-winning restaurant

Let’s first look at the traditional experience in Victoria & Albert’s Dining Room. In the past, guests could dine on the 7-course “Tasting Menu” Prix Fixe Menu for $185 or $250 with wine pairings. Well, according to Disney’s website, the same experience will now cost $295 per guest with optional wine pairings starting at $150 per guest and zero-proof pairings starting at $110 per guest.

Additionally, Victoria & Albert’s Queen Victoria’s Room (which features a 10-course prix fixe menu with French gueridon service) previously cost $235 per guest ($340-$385 with wine pairings) and has increased to $375 per guest with wine pairings costing an extra $200 per guest and zero-proof pairings costing $110 per guest.

And, lastly, the Chef’s Table (which allows you to choose from two 7-10 course prix fixe tasting menus) cost $350 before closing and will now cost $425 per guest. Wine pairings can be added to the dining experience starting at $200 per guest and zero-proof pairings start at $110 per guest. Disney’s website does note that the pricing is subject to change.

Reservations will open up on June 20th, but there are some things you’ll need to know before booking. This is one of the few Disney World restaurants with a stricter dress code, meaning that “guests are expected to dress accordingly in semi-formal/formal attire that respects the restaurant’s elegant and opulent aesthetic” according to Disney’s website (note that this is a slight change from the pre-closure dress code policy).

You’ll also need to note that only children ages 10 and up are welcome to dine in the restaurant and there is a $100 cancellation fee for cancellations made within five days of the reservation. The full price will be charged for no-shows and or cancellations within 24 hours of the reservation.

If you’re ready to book, you’ll be able to make reservations online through the Disney World website or My Disney Experience app or by calling (407) WDW-DVNA or (407) 939-3862 on or after June 20th.

  1. Something that I learned recently–the Chef’s Table page space on the V&A page says “up to six people” but when I called to ask some questions, I mentioned that we had a party of 3, and was told you had to have at least 4. She did tell me if we only had 3 people, they would charge us the $425 for the fourth seat. It’s also not available on Sundays–not sure if that applies to the whole restaurant.

  2. Do you know if V &A’s is subject to the 60 day time when making reservations? We’re going in dormer and really want to make this happen!

    1. It definitely is. And same rules about length of stay bookings. If you REALLY want it, you might want to fudge your hotel reservation–book for a longer (starting earlier) window, and then change it later before your balance is due.

  3. My wife and I have dined at V & A for our anniversaries. The last time we were there, there was a large family acting as if they were eating at McDonalds. The entire party were loud and noisy, especially the adults. They ruined the entire evening. I was hoping the staff would tell them to leave, it was that bad. But the other times we ate there, it was perfect.

  4. Wow the bean counters at Disney must be truely greedy. What makes a meal worth $110 more and a wine tasting an additional $85 more than it was 2 years ago? would have loved to go there but not at those costs

    1. The price of food everywhere is higher than it was two years ago, so that will certainly be part of the price increase. However, Disney management is definitely doing a little price gouging on those that are excited V and A is reopening.
