Afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian

First of all, congratulations to Bear & my best friend, Honey for tying the knot on August 10, 2013!!! Please click here to read their love story.

Anyway, for their honeymoon, they decided to go to Disney with 8 other people. Okay, I know that may sound weird but that’s because they’re leaving (or rather, they’ve left) for China for two years!

One of the most memorable things we did at Disney World was have afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian. It is one of the resorts they have there but once you step in, it’s not like the other Disney themed resorts.

It was a girl’s only afternoon tea. Everyone (but me) had some sort of mouse ears. I left mine in my suitcase. Go figure.

We decided to go for the Buckingham Palace tea which includes their traditional tea sandwiches, scones and jam tarts complemented by fresh strawberries and cream, or a selection of freshly baked pastries, along with your choice of tea. $23.00 per guest.

I cannot remember the name of the tea I had but it’s better that way. You don’t need to try it. šŸ™ Definitely do not need to try it…

It came with the standard type of sandwiches and an onion tart. They were kind enough to allow me to switch the meat ones for egg salad sandwiches šŸ™‚ My friends tell me that this has been the first time they were able to finish all the sandwiches so they must be good!

This is their salty scone (yeah it tasted like corn bread) and their uberly sweet strawberry tart.

Unlike other tea places, you are given a choice of two petit fours OR fresh strawberries & cream OR an English trifle. Upon looking at the choices, I went with the strawberries.

All in all it was a fun experience. The server we had was very accommodating! Our friend was cold and she brought out a table cloth for her to wear… haha. Definitely a must visit on your trip to Disney World šŸ™‚

  1. If I ever visit Disney world again I’ll have to try and making time for this time but then again there are just so many things to do there! Oh initially I did think it was a bit odd to have a group honey moon but I just thought some people prefer lots of company, now I know why they did it . I wish them the best of luck!

    P.S I received your post card, thank you SOOOOO much! It’s adorable and I was impressed you were able to find time to send it! If it’s alright, can I ask here you sent it at Disney World? I wanted to send some on the cruise but then the post office was closed when we got to the island! (unless it was a fake one then I’ve been deceived!)

  2. Wow, I’m so glad I checked our blog. I should’ve known you would blog about the afternoon tea.

    It makes me SO HAPPY to know that you enjoyed it. I’m so glad we finally got to be at Disney World together ^___^

    Seriously, this post totally makes my day, if not week.

    *hugs* Love you till the end of time <3
