    We planned an anniversary, and had our restaurant rezzies made 180 days out. Those got canceled but we are still keeping fingers crossed that we can book Victoria & Albert’s Sept. 24 or 25. Any hint on when it will reopen of if there is a waiting list?

    Hi Kimberly,

    We are so happy to see you stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel again! 

    Let me first say that we also had all of our restaurant reservations for our upcoming trip cancelled. Those were a few rough days seeing all of those cancellation emails. We have since recovered and are happy to see people making advanced dining reservations again!

    As much as I wish I had an update, we do not yet have one for the reopening of Victoria & Albert's and there is currently no waiting list. Continue to check the dining updates as restaurant availability is added when more information is released. Also keep an eye on the opening dates of resort hotels. As you probably already know, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is currently set to reopen on September 21. 

    In the meantime, I do hope you have reserved other dining experiences. Although nothing can quite replace Victoria & Albert's, we have been reviewing the dining experiences that are available and selecting those that we have not yet experienced. Our girls brought back some joy by reminding us that it can be exciting to try something new. As one who has favorite dining experiences that we revisit on each trip, this has been an adjustment for me!

    Kimberly, do be sure to check all of the operational updates and follow the Disney Parks Blog. Information is coming out daily so hopefully we will hear more soon. In the meantime, get to packing. It is almost TIME!!! Make sure you have everything you need for your next Incredible Disney Day!

    Magic and memories,
