We celebrated our 36th Anniversary at V&A with the wine parings. All together there were 7 courses, each with its own wine paring selected to compliment the selection. Not even listed was a special appetizer prepared by the chefs and a final gift of very small sweet tastes and a special loaf we used for breakfast the next morning. Each course had multiple selections to choose from, depending on your individual tastes. I am sure the selections change as the seasons change. But I must say, this was the best tasting lamb I've had in 23 years. (Best before this was from a pub in the UK countryside). We were served by a husband/wife team that were very pleasant to talk to, with a wealth of knowledge about how each dish was prepared or where each bottle of wine came from. Lets just say that V&A lived up to its billing (and the bill). It is a very expensive restaurant, make no mistake. Value you will just have to judge for your self, but for the food, service, presentation, wine and atmosphere...the only thing that would have made it better (but not really necessary) would have been a window to watch the fireworks from the Magic Kingdom. But maybe not, it was a very pleasant respite from the WDW madness. If you get the wine paring, make sure you have a way home that doesn't require you to drive.
One serendipitous note; when we left the restaurant (second floor of the Grand Floridian, there is a huge ornate multistory lobby area were periodically there was either a band or a pianist playing music. As we were leaving, we looked down and there singing with the pianist was a girl (obviously a patron of the park in shorts, t-shirt and flip flops). She was singing "Part of Your World" from the Little Mermaid with such a sweet soft voice that at first I thought it was a recording from the movie. She sang it perfectly. When they were done, she just disappeared, to light applause. Talk about a magical moment.
