There have been a lot of changes going on within Walt Disney World Resort, with some of them (like the permanent cancellation of the Spirit of Aloha show) being less positive changes for Disney Guests — but one positive fine dining change is the return of Victoria & Albert’s! The Disney Parks Blog has shared that the popular Disney restaurant Victoria & Albert’s will be reopening in 2022 for fine dining!
Nicole Cantore, a Digital Integration Specialist, for Disney’s Global Food & Beverage department, shared the news about the dining establishment that features both “classic Victorian elegance” and “haute American cuisine” while also sharing the “Best Bites at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort” for spring 2022.

“You’ve likely been wondering when Victoria & Albert’s would be opening its doors once again at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and I am very pleased to share that this beloved favorite will be coming back later this year,” Nicole Cantore wrote. “While we don’t have specifics right now, stay tuned for updates to come!”
This is good news for anyone who likes enjoying the finer things in life, because Victoria & Albert’s is described as “one of the most preeminent restaurants in Walt Disney World Resort”. It’s even featured in the Forbes Travel Guide!
This restaurant is a five-star award-winning dining option within Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa — and with “exquisite ingredients from around the world, including truffles from Italy, Russian Osetra caviar, beef from Japan, poulet rouge from North Carolina and local Florida shrimp,” it’s no surprise that the restaurant has been a popular one for Disney Guests or foodies!
The Disney food on the Chef’s Degustation Menu varies for this restaurant, in accordance with which ingredients are ‘in season’ (and which meals make the cut in the eyes of executive Chef Scott Hunnel), so this luxurious fine dining menu can include anything from Spanish Octopus with Iberico ham and sherry vinaigrette to a whimsical poached egg with Florida corn and crayfish! There is also a sophisticated wine pairing available!
Are you excited about fine dining on some fancy Disney food in this Grand Floridian restaurant? If you like “genteel” high-class treats like imperial caviar, langoustines with passion fruit nuoc cham, toothfish and Nantucket scallops with dill and potato glass, or sweet desserts like the vanilla gelato with plum compote and white chocolate or a Trinitario chocolate mousse and avocado gelato, then Victoria & Albert’s will definitely be an addition for your Disney World destination dining list when it’s open again!
Would you rather eat at the Chef’s Table or in the Queen Victoria room?
