Celebration Magazine Issue #1 - Victoria & Albert’s: The Best Table in the House

In most restaurants, people go to great lengths to be seated far, far away from the kitchen.  But ironically, the most coveted dining experience in Walt Disney World is actually located at a table inside the kitchen.

Of course, we’re not just talking about any old table.  This is the Chef’s Table at Victoria & Albert’s, the romantic Victorian restaurant located on the second floor of Disney’s Grand Floridian.

Seats at the Chef’s Table are not easy to come by.  Because the Chef’s Table has only one seating per night, and there is only room at the table for 10, a seat can be harder to secure than tickets to a Hannah Montana convert.  Dinner at the Chef’s Table is in such demand that some Guests make their Chef’s Table reservations first,and then plan the rest of their trips around it.

When you arrive at Victoria & Albert’s for your evening at the Chef’s Table, you are greeted by name and escorted through the gracious dining room, past the regular tables, and into the gleaming kitchen.

That is how my first ever published article begins in the Premier Issue of Celebrations MagazineIf your interest is peaked, and I hope it is, please get your hands on a copy of the first issue of Celebrations Magazine.  If you don’t have a friend with a copy, then please head over to their website and order you a copy.

The first issue is 80 pages of fabulous material covering all kinds of topics along with some games and other fun stuff.

Since you wrote the thing I think you should post the rest of it here :) I am not interesting in supporting a competing magazine to Orlando Attractions Magazine.

Kurt,

Even though I wrote the article it's not mine to publish in it's entirety outside the Celebrations Magazine domain. I had permission from Tim Foster to post a snippet of the article just to help let people know of my contribution.

Also, we at Celebrations Magazine don't consider ourselves in competition with Orlando Attractions Magazine. The magazine published by Ricky Brigante and Matt Roseboom covers the entire Orlando Tourism Spectrum.

Celebrations Magazine just covers Walt Disney World.

In fact, Lou Mongello still supports and plugs Orlando Attractions Magazine on his podcast and website which I don't think he'd be doing if he viewed his magazine in competition.

Hopefully, you'll give us a chance in the future ;)

I personally subscribe to both magazines and will continue to do so.

They are both great magazines.
