Well, it looks like Disneyland Hotel isn’t the only Disney resort getting a new Afternoon Tea! Beginning this month, Disney World’s Beach Club will host Afternoon Tea at Solarium Gardens on select dates throughout the year in the resort’s beautiful Crescent Solarium.
Dates currently available for booking are February 11- 14, February 18-21, March 24-29, May 5 – 8, June 16-19, and September 1 – 5, 2016.
EDITOR’S UPDATE: Please note that since this article was published, more dates have been added: April 14-17, May 5-8, July 1-4, and August 11-14.
Guests will be able to choose from three tea packages for adults, and one for children ages 3-9. The Sea Side Park Tea features four courses: a first course of Artisan cheese selections and seasonal accompaniments, followed by a second course of petit sandwiches along with canapés on house-made breads. Scones will then be served with clotted cream, lemon curd, and a seasonal jam, with the final course consisting of tea cookies and house-made pastries. All adult packages will include the guest’s choice of loose-leaf tea.
The Sandy Cove Tea includes the petit sandwiches and canapés on house-made breads for the first course, followed by the scones with clotted cream, lemon curd, and a seasonal jam along with tea cookies and house-made pastries. Again, your choice of loose-leaf tea is also included.
The Prince Cove Tea is the only package to feature a house-made charcuterie and cheese plate, which will be accompanied by the scones with clotted cream, lemon curd, and a seasonal jam as well as the tea cookies and house-made pastries. And, of course, your choice of loose-leaf tea.
Guests ages 3-9 can try the Short Sands Beach Tea, with a first course of assorted tea sandwiches followed by a scone with clotted cream, lemon curd, and a seasonal jam. Chocolate chip cookies complete the package, which is all enjoyed with “special dark tea” (otherwise known as “chocolate milk” 😉 ).
The Beach Club is one of the Epcot area resorts, just a short stroll away from World Showcase (from the International Gateway between the United Kingdom and France Pavilions). If Afternoon Tea sounds like a great respite from a busy park day, you can call (407) WDW-DINE to make an Advance Dining Reservation.
