31×31 Afternoon Tea

31×31 Afternoon Tea

img_1354Have tea somewhere fancy is on my 31×31 list. During our recent Disney World trip we did just that.

We skipped the parks on Saturday to give Ryan’s foot, our wallet and the crowds a rest. So we scheduled afternoon tea t Disney’s Grand Floridian. We had an earlier afternoon reservation so we slept in, ate a pastry from Epcot and skipped lunch.

We arrived a few minutes early and marveled at the lobby while we waited.

We both ordered the Bedfordshire Tea with sandwiches, scone, jam tart and assorted pastries or trifle. We got one of the pastries and one trifle.  Ryan ordered a rose infused tea which I did not love (he didn’t either but tea is not his thing.) I ordered a traditional tea which was good.

I am glad we had this experience but I probably wont do it again. Afternoon tea is one of my favorite things to do. I would rather have an experience else where for the money and quality of food. To me there was nothing Disney magic about this, that you couldn’t find at any nicer hotel with an Afternoon Tea offering. I will say the party next to us had some food allergies and I was very impressed with the accommodations they received.  For reference I have had afternoon tea in Bath, England in high school, The Peabody in Memphis in the past few years and on various Princess cruises which is actually one of my favorites and something I look forward to everyday.
