We were on a mother/daughter trip this time. My daughter (20) burns the candle at both ends while in Disneyworld. I can hardly keep up with her! We made reservations for tea on our next to last day. We were not dressed up and even saw some marathon participants in athletic wear. Our reservation was at 3:20. We were told to come back in 10 minutes. We did this and were told to come back in 15 min. There was a host and hostess at the podium. Wish I had noted their names. I don't know if they were "in character", but they were a bit arrogant. This is a bright, feminine place. We did see 4 or 5 men there, however. Our server Patricia was very gracious and knowledgable. She explained the menu choices and we were allowed to make subsitutions. We each got a pot of tea, plate of little sandwiches, sweet onion tart, scones with devonshire cream and strawberry preserves, and fresh strawberries with cream. Service is relaxed and leisurely. I wouldn't recommend dining here if you are crunched for time. For me it was perfect. I was so tired from a week of parks, that I welcomed this with all my heart. I always say food tastes better on pretty dishes. This meal was a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. We talked, relaxed, looked through our pictures and began to reminisce about our trip even before we left. We thouroghly enjoyed the experience and talk about it often. It is pricey, but no more that anything else in Disney.
