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.

Walt Disney famously said, “I don't want the public to see the world they live in while they're in the Park. I want to feel they're in another world," and at the Downtown Disney restaurants, that is exactly what you’ll get.
