Agreed. This place has a really good reputation, the trouble is I am too lazy to drive there!

Jiko's for me, every time.

Lots of competition in Orlando and when you consider all of Florida then there are far more imaginative chefs than those stuck in the rut which is the V&A.

Tom, you have been stuck on site too long. The signature restaurants aren't bad but they change their menus so infrequently and look dated.

I think a week eating along "Restaurant Row" will beat a week eating at Disney by a long way.

Agreed, we find them to be much better value now as well. We still go to Citrico's occasionally but not as much as we used to. I know Tom has agreed in the past that the free DDP hasn't been beneficial to standards in the Signatures. It has also made our previous spur of the moment visits nearly impossible.

Donna. I was just about there getting my Wife to do a 1 week break in Florida this March being the 4th trip this year. It would have been Hotel Boulevard but eating offsite and no Parks.
However Watches of Switzerland rang me today ref my late dads watch which is ready for collection and the cost has wiped me out!

I'm in total agreement with Mr T on Jiko. It was our best onsite meal by a mile and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
I do like to see a changing menu though where a chef has been inspired by what's available rather than working on autopilot each day.
We had the chefs bench at Jiko and they actually suggested we ditched some of our reservations because they didn't rate them. Some they were very enthusiastic about though.
We were underwhelmed by DDP in general. It was ok but we felt we missed out a bit.
I think sometimes people assume you're eating offsite to save money but that's not necessarily the case. Some of the food offsite is far, far better.
However, if you're onsite without a car and you've got 'free dining' you're going to use it aren't you?
We absolutely loved the convenience
