V&A. DEFINITELY. Someday……

#1 and #2 were definitely on my bucket list and I got to experience them both for the first time back in November. Now, I want to do Hoop de doo and Spirit of Aloha dinner show. I’ve never done dinner shows so that should be exciting!

Victoria & Albert’s is definitely at the top of my list…and like Vanessa said; Someday.

This is the beauty of Disney World and half the fun of planning our next vacation! We always tell our friends and family that no vacation is alike and we never tire of Disney – just the food and restaurant experiences alone keep us coming back – oh yea and Mickey of course. :)

Victoria & Albert’s, …….someday as well.

Have enjoyed 5 out of 7 – not too shabby. V&A some day but I think we missed the boat for the Perfectly Princess Tea as my girls are now teens – maybe when I’m a grandma 😀 Chef Mickey’s I a must-do each trip; the Hoop Dee Doo is always a favorite; we’ve enjoyed the Luau and really enjoyed Jiko’s Wine Tasting – that was a last minute find!
Lots of wonderful places to dine around the World!

I’ve always wanted to eat at Artist’s Point. Have always loved the feel of that restaurant when I have peeked inside.

Victoria & Albert’s is one of the few I haven’t been. Planning a special anniversary dinner there, 20th or 25th.
Top 5 Restaurants:
Cape May Cafe
Artist Point
Yachtsman Steakhouse
Hoop Dee Doo Revue
Whispering Canyon Cafe

Honorable Mention

Hi Pam!

We love eating at the Disney Parks. We just recently visited Walt Disney World and built our entire itinerary around our dining picks! We always make an effort to visit Victoria & Albert’s and this time we were able to try the Queen Victoria Room. Amazing! Our bucket list is below:
1. Victoria & Albert’s
2. Brown Derby
3. Jiko
4. Flying Fish
5. Yachtman Steakhouse

One thing we love doing is trying our favorite recipes from the Disney cookbooks. Any idea when a new cookbook might be coming out?
