    We are missing our visits to Garden View Tea Room. Any hints to when it will reopen? Or is it gone forever :( It is our favorite and we have visited this with our teens many times. We are brining our daughter and her best friend this next trip.

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Suzanne. I'm so glad you stopped by! It looks like your next visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is less than a month away. How exciting! There's no place I'd rather be, that's for sure.

     I share your feelings about Garden View Tea Room. A visit to this unique restaurant at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa always makes for an elegant, intimate, and upscale dining experience. My daughter wasn't quite old enough to enjoy afternoon tea at Garden View Tea Room before it was closed, and now that she's ready, I'm eager for it to reopen! Unfortunately, there's been no news about when this experience will be available for booking again. But not to fret! The Garden View Tea Room page on the Walt Disney World Resort website states that "this offering is currently unavailable." That verbiage gives me hope that it won't be closed forever! My best advice is to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog. It's your best resource for news and updates about Disney Parks and destinations! As experiences and offerings return to the Walt Disney World Resort, you'll see those announcements posted on the Disney Parks Blog. 

     In the meantime, I encourage you to consider an alternative experience for your upcoming stay. Did you know that The Grand Floridian Spa has reopened? It's the perfect place for pampering! I enjoyed a manicure and pedicure there a few years ago, and loved every minute. If you're more interested in a dining experience, I recommend booking one of the Magic Kingdom 50th Fireworks Dessert Parties: Disney Enchantment Treats & Seats. These offerings from the Enchanting Extras Collection combine exclusive seating for Disney Enchantment with a variety of 50th Anniversary-themed desserts - what could be better?

     I hope this was helpful, Suzanne. Please let us know if you have any other questions about your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! We'd love to help you plan a magical stay.
