Victoria & Albert’s Receives Illustrious AAA Five Diamond and Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Awards; Napa Rose Honored with AAA Four Diamond
Only a select few restaurants are approved and highly rated with either the prestigious AAA Diamond or Forbes Travel Guide Stars awards each year. It is with great pleasure we announce two of our Disney restaurants received these impressive accolades for 2019 – Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Napa Rose at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.
Victoria & Albert’s has received the renowned AAA Five Diamond Award each year since 2000 and, for the second year, the coveted Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Award. Victoria & Albert’s is the only restaurant in the state of Florida to be awarded both the AAA Five Diamond and Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Awards – with only 26 other restaurants in the Unites States holding both awards. Every night, Victoria & Albert’s brings guests the ultimate in fine dining with classic Victorian elegance, haute American cuisine, and an atmosphere of refined opulence.
For each consecutive year since 2012, Napa Rose has been honored with the AAA Four Diamond – a distinctive rating for restaurants offering a culinary experience to savor and enjoy. Celebrating the diverse tastes of California, from its coast to its farms, ranches and vineyards, the Napa Rose menu, which changes seasonally, reflects the restaurant’s commitment to sourcing California’s finest, freshest ingredients.
AAA rates and approves nearly 32,000 restaurants throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Only 0.2 percent of the restaurants are awarded the AAA Five Diamond rating and 2.1 percent receive the AAA Four Diamond. These ratings represent a combination of overall food, service, décor, and ambiance.
Out of the over 1,600 restaurants across the globe rated by Forbes Travel Guide, only 69 restaurants received the preeminent Five-Star rating. Forbes Travel Guide’s expert inspectors anonymously test each restaurant against up to 900 rigorous standards. Only the best of the best achieves the esteemed Five-Star rating.
Congratulations to both the Victoria & Albert’s and Napa Rose teams for earning these distinguished and celebrated awards.
