Disney World has been slowly returning to normal lately! The beloved Festival of Fantasy parade recently returned to the Magic Kingdom, and character meet and greets are expected to come back soon, too! Not only that, but Disney has been relaxing its health and safety guidelines in the parks and resorts.
That said, there are still some experiences and restaurants that have not reopened in Disney World. We’re still waiting for Fantasmic! to return to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and dinner shows like The Spirit of Aloha and the Hoop Dee Doo Revue are still on pause. The good news is that Disney just announced that another restaurant is reopening in Disney World SOON! Let’s take a look!
Over in Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, the signature dining experience at Victoria & Albert’s has been closed since the start of the pandemic in 2020. Now, Disney announced that this popular restaurant is returning in 2022!
Disney did not share an official opening date, but we know that the restaurant is coming soon! We’ll keep our eyes out for more information.
If you’re unfamiliar with Victoria & Albert’s, let us fill you in! This is an award-winning, signature dining restaurant, which means that you can expect some fine dining and high prices.
One of the most unique (and exclusive) aspects of Victoria & Albert’s is that the restaurant previously offered the Victoria and Albert’s Chef’s Table, which is a 3-hour dining experience where your party is seated right in the kitchen. Throughout the meal, the chefs interact with guests and help to craft a personalized degustation menu. Disney has not stated if this experience will return when the restaurant reopens, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed for good news!
Currently, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is under construction as Disney works on NEW DVC Resort Studio rooms. The rooms will feature soft, elegant Mary Poppins Returns theming and several modern amenities. If Disney’s construction goes according to plan, the rooms could be ready as early as June 20th, 2022.
We’re always on the lookout for the latest Disney news, so be sure to stay tuned for more!
