    While we're at it...can the Napa Rose kick out the adult drunks as well. While I enjoy a good glass of wine now and then, last few times I was there the number of people that were over-the-top (meaning disgustingly and obnoxiously) drunk was amazing. To the point that it's no longer worth going. So, a sober (or at least not obviously drunk), adult restaurant works for me!!

    But, I'm also cool with kids as long as they are really well behaved. In fact, the kids I've witnessed at the Napa Rose were normally MUCH better behaved than a lot of adults. :thumbup:

    I have to agree that this is a very good idea, V&A wasn't made for kids anyway so I see no fuss in banning them from it. (Besides, since I'm now 18 it doesn't affect me to the least. )

    When it comes to high class resturants, I see them as more of a Adult experience. Quite frankly some kids can make certain places a real pain so I'm all for the adult only resturants and experiences since it offers something for the older crowd. (Too bad that has not exactly worked out in attractions in the parks a la' Alien Encounter.)

    This story made the news in Los Angeles. I heard it on the radio. According to the reporter, that restaurant starts at $125 per person, and they usually only got a few children a year in the first place. What a restaurant that must be! I can imagine that way, way back in the old days, when the rule was that children are to be seen and not heard (and only the upper class could dine in such style,) it was probably charming to see well behaved, silent children. But according to my grandmother, who remembered that era, sitting at the table wasn't very fun for kids at all.

    7pm is prime eating time. I would say a few restaurants at 9pm (CA Grill, Chefs, etc.) Of course, WS closes at 9 - but I wouldn't want to see kids kicked out of restaurants at 7 in a theme park.

    I wouldn't be unhappy if V&A went all adult.

    The restaurant always discouraged people bringing children to the restaurant. There is no children's menu and the dress code would apply to kids as well. When booking people were highly discouraged from bringing children and were told that misbehavour by the children would not be tolerated. Any such outbursts by children would have the entire family escorted out of the restaurant with no refunds.

    Now there is a formal written policy so that it easier for reservationists to fall back on rather than trying to go through the discouragement spiels.

    Personally, I don't think Victoria & Alberts is appropriate for anyone under the age of 18 and I think Walt Disney World needs more places for adults to enjoy a meal and more restaurants that do not have childrens menus. Just as many childless adults come to Disney World as those with children. If I was running EPcot I would make all of World Showcases table service restaurants child free after 7pm. let the kids eat at the counter service or at the Magic Kingdom.

    isn't that what the neverland center at poly is for? taking care of kids so parents can go out in the evening and enjoy themselves? I can't imagine a family paying $200 plus per person for a nice meal and wanting to bring their youngsters along especially since they have limited seatings and no children's meals. what is the chef supposed to do? make chicken nuggests?
    since wine is offered with the meal, I personally would like to see it be at least 18 years of age, but someone in the party must be 21 or older.

    That reminds me of something that happened a long time ago when I worked at DRC. Someone called - they wanted to book 2 rooms. One for themselves at a deluxe resort. Then their under-18 kids at a moderate. That didn't happen. (though they could have gotten around it pretty easily so maybe it did).

    I am all for an adult-only restaurant. But not for taking a vacation separate from the minor kids while everyones at Disney.

    Great move. There weren't any kids when we were there, but I can see it being a problem. I wouldn't even think of taking someone under 10 to a place like that, even if money wasn't in the picture.

    I certainly agree with this. I love kids but there is a time and place for kids. Adults need their own special time. Is there a place where only the kids can go while the parents are dining? Other than the resort babysitting!

    I totally agree with this. If you are going to a nice place like this the last thing you want is a bunch of kids ruining the atmosphere. I would never take our kids there. They wouldnt appreciate it either!

    I wish more restaurants did stuff like this.

    Kids don't belong everywhere.

    Heck, during Gay Days at DL we saw some people at midnight with their kids at Lost Bar.

    I thought that it was always that way. Well now I know.

    What I've seen discussed over the past years was maybe a curfew on kids (like past 9). I think an evening adults-only restaurant - or a few of them at WDW - would be very nice. And maybe the 2nd seating at Victoria and Alberts be 18+.

    I was surprised to see the topic also make it to Fark this morning.

    I have kids and think this is great. Its expensive to eat there and I think its probably nicer without the kids. Kinda like PALO on DCL.

    People with children may think this sux, but I am looking forward to a posh, adult atmosphere dining experience (when I get to Florida again).

    This has been mentioned elsewhere, I hadn't even realized that kids were allowed. I think it's better to have a more adult dining experience.
