FULL REVIEW: Pixar Fest Afternoon Tea in Disneyland Hotel

When Disneyland Resort introduced a brand new Pixar Fest Afternoon Tea a couple of weeks ago, we were chomping at the bit to learn more — and to get in on that tea and sandwiches action! The Pixar Fest Afternoon Tea is a part of the on-going (and delicious!) Pixar Fest, so guests can reserve tea through September 3, when the festival ends.

We were there on DAY 1 to enjoy it, so let’s head over to Steakhouse 55 and enjoy afternoon tea!

The cost of the Pixar Fest Afternoon Tea is $52-$65 per adult and $35 per child, and its location at Steakhouse 55 raised our expectations. We’d already had a great experience at Steakhouse 55 for regular old afternoon tea. Imagine what would happen when they Pixar-fied it!

Dining in Disneyland: Afternoon Tea at Disneyland Hotel’s Steakhouse 55

Up until recently, Steakhouse 55 in the Disneyland Hotel has only offered breakfast/brunch and dinner.  This past January, they opened their doors for a lovely Classic Afternoon Tea.

When I first heard about the tea offering, I knew I wanted to try it out.  Steakhouse 55 has always been one of my favorite Disneyland Resort restaurants.  I especially love the atmosphere here, so I was really excited to have a new Steakhouse 55 experience.  Breakfast at Steakhouse 55 is what I believe to be one of the very best breakfasts on property.  Dinner is wonderful too, so I was sure afternoon tea would be a delight as well!

I tried to book immediately, but it was full almost a month out! So, I booked my month out and waited patiently.  Checking in for tea is the same process as a meal.  Just head on up to the podium and you will be escorted back to the dining room.

When the time came, I was joined by my best pal.  We took the first reservation of the day, which was at noon, and when we got there it was basically empty.  By the time we left, there was not one open table! [Read more…]
