Each Delicious Disney event ranges from $349-399 per person. For more information and a list of the schedule, visit the website here.
Victoria & Albert’s is known for being the most elegant restaurant at Walt Disney World. The only AAA Five Diamond award recipient on Disney property, this dining location is a cut above the rest.

Private VIP Tours and signature services
You may have heard of Disney’s VIP tours, which are offered to groups and themed to thrills, dining, and other awesome experiences. But did you know that you can also reserve a private VIP tour guide that will take you through the theme parks for as long as you want, with just your personal vacation party? You can reserve a private VIP tour guide starting at between $425 and $625 per hour, and valid theme park admission isn’t included. This is one of the priciest Disney experiences you can get and is often booked by celebrities or those celebrating extra special occasions, but if you can swing it, it will probably knock your socks off.

Disney also offers signature services to make your vacation easier, in which Disney will personally book your signature experiences, dining reservations, FastPass+ reservations, in-room gifts and celebrations, and create and plan other enchanting extras for you.

These resorts generally start at $300 per night for a basic room, but if you want to stay club level or in a villa, you’re looking at a cost upwards of $500-700 per night.
