Experience Afternoon Tea at Disney's Grand Floridian

Posted by Chris Golden on Jun 3, 2015 2:59:00 PM

Every day at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, you can step back in time and experience a traditional British-style afternoon tea.

Escape to the serene setting of the Garden View Lounge and treat yourself to the tea experience daily from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Located on the first floor of the lobby of this Disney Vacation Club resort, afternoon tea is the perfect getaway for a Mother/Daughter Date, a Girl's Day Out, a relaxing respite for couples, or a personal break from the hustle and bustle of being at the Disney parks all day. To add to the ambiance, each day at 3 p.m., live music starts to drift throughout the tea room provided by a professional piano performer or the delightfully-distinguished Disney Band.

Greatest Moments in Disney's Golf History

Posted by Diana Furey on Mar 23, 2015 8:21:00 AM

Spring is here yet again. This means slightly warmer temps, but definitely nothing like the sweltering summer weather up ahead. It is certainly the perfect time to get out there and enjoy one of the great American pastimes: golf. Even though it is technically a game, a lot of people play for relaxation and the social side of it. Golfing is definitely something a lot of DVC members partake in when they aren’t visiting the parks or aren’t lounging around at their resorts. All four Disney courses, the Magnolia, the Palm, Lake Buena Vista, and Osprey Trail, definitely offer the Disney experience you are looking for, but with a little friendly competition mixed in.
