    Do you know if the Grand Floridian Afternoon tea is open on New Years Day, Jan 1 2017

    Hello, Nancy!

    I am so glad that you stopped by Disney Parks Moms Panel to ask this question because Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room is one of my favorite treats throughout all of Walt Disney World!

    You'll be happy to hear that this truly lovely experience is offered several times each afternoon, seven days a week, at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa--including holidays. Guests can make their Advanced Dining Reservations for any Table Service experience 180 days in advance, so if you have your heart set on enjoying the most delicious sandwiches, pastries and teas on a very special day, I suggest securing your reservation as soon as you are able to do so.

    The setting is truly lovely, with both the elegant ambiance of both Disney's Grand Floridian's superb lobby as well as the gorgeous gardens right outside the plentiful windows. Should you dine later in the afternoon, you'll also enjoy the soothing tones streaming from the nearby Grand Floridian piano player or the festive tunes from a live ensemble. Check the Afternoon Tea link provided above for specific times, if interested.

    If you'd like to enjoy a beautiful--and equally delicious--final dish during your tea, be sure to opt for the Strawberries and Creme as your finale. You'll have sweet dreams of it for nights to come. It's SO GOOD!

    Have a wonderful New Years Day visit to Walt Disney World, Nancy! Be sure to send us additional questions as you think of them. We love to help!
