    Do know when the Afternoon Tea May open in the Grand Floridian?

    Hi Harry,

    Welcome to planDisney! Well, you have asked the question my girls and I have been asking for months!

    Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room is one of our absolute favorite experiences. Unfortunately, we do not yet have a reopening date for this dining location. My girls and I always do afternoon tea together as an experience for just us while my husband relaxes in our resort hotel room. My best advice is to keep checking the dining updates and the Disney Parks Blog. For now, you could stop by Joy of Tea in the China Pavilion at EPCOT to get a taste of tea.

    Given your arrival date, there is still hope! Continue making your dining plans and leave some time on the schedule just in case it reopens in time for your visit. We are visiting in July and did the same for 'Ohana. We were ecstatic when we learned that 'Ohana would actually be reopened during our visit and we jumped online as soon as reservations opened to make an advanced dining reservation. So, be sure to stay tuned. If a reopening date is announced, you should also find out when dining reservations will open for that location!

    I do hope you have already booked your vacation package and made Disney Park Pass system reservations. Mark your dining reservation date on your calendar and be ready to make those reservations at 5:45 a.m. when your dining reservation window opens, currently 60-days prior to your arrival.

    Harry, happy planning! I am sending a little extra pixie dust hoping that you will be able to enjoy Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room when you visit!

    Magic and memories,
