    Hello - We are planning a visit the second week of December, and wondering if tea at the Garden View Tearoom located at the Grand Floridian Hotel, will be offered during that time?

    Hello Julie! It's great that you came to visit planDisney with your question! You are just a month away from your magical vacation!
    Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is my favorite Walt Disney World Resort Hotel! We love the beachside resort feel of this property! We also have many favorite dining locations that this resort. Some of those, including Garden View Tea Room, are currently closed. At this time, it is not clear when more dining locations will reopen. 

    There are several great alternatives to consider while you're visiting Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa! The first recommendation that I will make is to visit the Enchanted Rose Lounge! This newly opened dining location was inspired by Beauty and the Beast! It is beautiful! You will find a lounge menu of food, a wide variety of drinks, and you will also find hot tea on the menu as well! The Enchanted Rose is a top pick!

    Another family favorite is the Grand Floridian Cafe! This might have more of  the feel of the Garden View Tea Room that you are looking for. My wife and I enjoy taking our children here as the menu has a wide variety of offerings for adults and children. This location is also a sentimental favorite as my Disney-loving sister-in-law hosted her bridal party here!

    Finally, the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is the home of my favorite quick-service restaurant in all of the Walt Disney World Resort! Gasparilla Island Grill offers a great breakfast before heading into the parks and an excellent selection of food upon returning from the parks! My favorite location to enjoy my meal is just outside of the Gasparilla Island Grill where you will have a view of the Magic Kingdom in the distance. I love sitting there with Cinderella Castle lit up in the evening off in the distance!

    Julie, have a perfect visit next month!
