If you are a Walt Disney World foodie, you know that some dining experiences on property are rarely done, and usually only for special occasions. You also know that one dining experience is so exclusive that many people may never do it in their whole lives — dine at Victoria & Albert’s. Victoria & Albert’s is located at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and truly brings the opulence of the hotel into the dining room. The restaurant designs tasting menus specific to each Guest and, for an extra fee, will design the tasting menu to be paired with delicious glasses of wine. Guests can also choose to dine in the regular dining room or try to get a sought-after Chef’s Table.
Even though Walt Disney World Resort has been open since the summer of 2020 — after its forced pandemic closure — Victoria & Albert’s is one of the few locations that has remained closed. However, last month, Disney shared that the fine dining restaurant would finally be reopening on July 28. And now they are giving us a first look at the gorgeous refurbished interior! Disney shared the pictures on its official Twitter account.
Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa opens July 28, but today we’ve got your first look at some new interior details. From delicate scroll work to shimmering chandeliers, take a look at the timeless opulence awaiting you.

As you can see, when Guests enter the newly redesigned Victoria & Albert’s, they will be transported to an absolutely stunning world. A grand crystal chandelier hangs in the center of the room, while another made of golden flowers sits in another small room. There are intimate touches everywhere, with silver dragonflies sitting on leaves along the way. A beautiful harp also lets you know that you are about to indulge in a one-of-a-kind Disney World dining experience.
