  • Per Disney dining the tea has been canceled for all future dates after July.

  • Have additional dates been added? I am interested in booking a tea the first weekend of November. Thank you!

  • How do you get to the solarium?

  • Do annual pass holders get a discount?

  • Is payment required at the time of reservation?

  • I have been to this tea twice . I have to say it was amazing ! Everything was delicious great detail was paid to each item on the plate . The food was prepared and plated as ordered nothing was plated and waiting to be served that really comes through with the freshness of your meal . The scones were amazing they need to be a daily offering at many locations throughout Disney world . I have been to the Grand Floridian many times for afternoon tea , this offering is different and not to be missed .The staff here is very friendly , attentive and accommodating . It is a very nice way to carve out a bit of your fast paced day at Disney world . I hope they make this permanent and start accepting Tables in wonderland .

  • My daughter in law and I were there for Valentine’s Day. It was so delicious and our server Martin, a lovely English gentleman, took excellent care of us. Our compliments to Mickey and his Chef, each course was amazing! We adored the chicken curry and the scones and lemon curd and clotted cream and berry puree for the scones were so delicious we ate it with a spoon. LOL…Mickey did not mind. My daughter in law was even licking her knife! I reminded her (as a true mother in law) that was not etiquette and she laughed and replied “I don’t care, this is so good I want every drop” – highly recommended, a great experience.

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I feel the same way as your daughter-in-law when it comes to lemon curd…YUM! :)

  • I went to Dining Reservations, but did not see this listed yet? Can you provide the menu path to reserve this?
