    I'll be visiting the first week of November and would like to do an afternoon tea. Garden tea room is closed and I'm sure if CakeBake will be opened. What's a good place to relax and get tea and pastries?

    Welcome to planDisney, Chelsea. I was thrilled to see your question, as I feel Afternoon Tea is one of life's greatest pleasures! It always feels like such an elegant, delicious treat! Add the delightful atmosphere of the Grand Floridian's Garden View Tea Room, well, that's practically perfect in every way!

    With no confirmed reopening date for the Garden View Tea Room or opening date for the Cake Bake Shop Bakery at Disney's Boardwalk, let's find you a suitable venue for a cuppa! Divine treats are bubbled and brewed at Citricos Lounge within Disney's Grand Floridian. Here, you can tuck into desserts such as Blackberry Tartlettes within an elegant Mary Poppins-inspired setting. 

    Le Petite Café at Disney's Rivera Resort offers a selection of delectable house-made pastries. Think of this as more Parisian Café rather than British afternoon tea. This venue is beautiful, and I believe the sweet dainties are some of the tastiest at Walt Disney World. 

    Within the Parks, I think an unsung pastry hero is Oasis Sweets & Sips in EPCOT. Our whole family loves acquiring a baklava selection here with a frozen mint tea and sitting overlooking the World Showcase lagoon for a relaxed break. 

    A great place to keep up to date with the latest Afternoon Tea (and other) developments at Walt Disney World is on Disney Parks Blog. I hope before you know it, you can return to whiling away an afternoon in the best possible way at Walt Disney World with a medley of finger sandwiches, scones, and a hot pot of tea. I'd love to help with any further questions, spit-spot, so please pop back if need be, Louise.
