    Do you need a reservation for the Grand Floridian Afternoon Tea? Mine got cancel somehow by accident.

    Hi Krystal,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted to discuss Afternoon Tea in Garden View Tea Room. My girls adore this experience!

    First, let me say how sorry I am that your reservation was cancelled by accident. I definitely strongly encourage you to continue searching for an advanced dining reservation. There is no guarantee that cast members would be able to accommodate your party without a reservation. I can say that cancellations do happen. I booked a last minute trip and started checking for dining reservations right after booking the trip. For the first few days the afternoon tea experience was booked solid. There were no tables available but then, one day, a reservation opened up and I snagged it!

    As you continue to check, keep in mind that there are other experiences. The Enchanting Extras Collection has a wide variety of dining possibilities. Review the Adventures in Dining options to see other ways to have that special dining experience. I am looking forward to Dine with an Animal Specialist on our upcoming trip! I had to call 407-939-7529 to reserve. 

    Krystal, I do hope you are able to make another reservation for tea. Since having Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room in August, my girls have taken to brewing tea in the afternoons. They make their own finger sandwiches and neatly cut snacks!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
