    My family and I are thinking of making a reservation at the Garden View Tea Room. I think it would be a really fun experience and am looking forward to it. My concern is is it worth the cost? Is it enough food for a meal or would it be better as a snack?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Karin. I'm so pleased to hear you're planning another Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

     Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room is one of my favorite experiences out of the theme parks. With Victorian theming and views of the elegant gardens at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, this unique dining location is just brew-tea-ful. I enjoyed Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room a few years ago, and I'm happy to spill the tea about my experience! 

     Guests with reservations for Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room are given several options of Traditional Tea Experiences with varying price points. Each Traditional Tea Experience includes a three-course selection of sandwiches, scones, and desserts accompanied by your choice of tea. My dining party opted for The Cheshire Tea which was the mid-priced option on the menu. This option included a selection of fruit and imported cheeses in addition to the three-course menu. We certainly left with full bellies, so I found the price point to be quite reasonable! When I made our reservations, I purposefully chose the latest available tea time. This allowed us to enjoy performances by the Grand Floridian Lobby Pianist and Grand Floridian Society Orchestra while we indulged in the relaxing ambiance of the Garden View Tea Room! We planned on this dining experience to be our evening meal, so sitting down at the latest tea time also allowed us to dine closer to a reasonable dinner hour. I highly recommend a reservation for Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room. It's practically perfect in every way! 

     I hope this was helpful, Karin. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
