The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Afternoon Tea In The Grand Floridian

Mini trip report! Read all the posts in this report here. We finish out my WDW Marathon trip report with a review of afternoon tea in the Garden View Lounge. I have probably had afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian than I have had any other WDW experience. Off the top of my head I’ve done it at least six times, although admittedly not since 2013. Naturally many changes may occur in the space of that many years, but that’s not I made my ADR for one the day before the marathon. No, I made it because a giant pot of tea...

In Which We Talk Afternoon Tea at the Grand Floridian

MOON: Okay, let’s do tea! JENN: We did the afternoon tea in the Grand Floridian’s Garden View Lounge for the first time in June of 2008. There have been many changes since then, some positive and some negative, but it is the one WDW restaurant I have returned to more than any other. I think my count is up to… I dunno, five times? Six? Anyway, Moon and I went again in February, so we figured we’d talk about it, because it is awesome. MOON: I was just looking at photos of our tea yesterday. Yuuum. 😀 JENN: The...
