The Classic Afternoon Tea at Steakhouse 55 in the Disneyland Hotel has received a major upgrade for the holiday season!
Depending on when you visit, the Traditional Afternoon Tea receives some twists reflecting the season and various celebrations happening around the resort.
Now, we’re spilling the tea on the Holiday Afternoon Tea that our friend Heather (@diningindisney on instagram) recently experienced.
As always, guests can choose from either the Classic Tea Party or the Premium Tea Party, which includes Sparkling Wine, Salad, and a Farewell Truffle in addition to the Classic inclusions of Scones, Tea Sandwiches, and Desserts. (A Kids Tea Party is also an option.)
Pinkies up! Of course, your choice of tea is also included with each package.
Themed arrangements are found on each table to help set the festive mood.
This beautiful floral decor could be described as simple and classic with neutral, wintry colors. We love this white floral arrangement that utilizes a silver gift box as the vase.
But we KNOW you aren’t reading this for the decor… Let’s get on to the bites!
On our visit, we opted for the Premium Tea Party Experience.
We obviously must begin with the beverage of the event…Tea!
The first course is a Salad that features Baby Kale, Quinoa, Pomegranate seeds, Stilton Cheese, Candied pecans, and White Balsamic Vinaigrette.
But save some room for the main event: a multi-tiered delight of Traditional Scones, Tea Sandwiches, and Desserts.
The Traditional Scones are served with a Citrus Cranberry Curd (in place of the usual lemon), Devonshire Cream, and Strawberry Marmalade. The Mickey-shaped scones get a holiday overlay with the addition of red and white candy cane sprinkles.
The Tea Sandwiches portion features Cucumber and Cranberry, Yuzu Avocado Mousse with Lingonberry and Chicory, Smoke Salmon Crumble with Celery Root Butter, and a Duck Confit and Braised Red Cabbage with Banana Mole Gel. They also generously accommodated us and gave us the adorable Snowman Chicken Salad Sandwiches that are featured on the Kids Tea Party Menu.
This course was super fun as they are all decked out in their Winter Best. Almost too cute to eat… Almost!
Started from the bottom now we’re here!
The top level features a bounty of yummy Desserts including Minted Cookies and Cream Mousse, Chocolate Hazelnut Roulade, White Chocolate Mocha Cream Puff, Orange Cranberry Cheesecake, and Chocolate Covered Strawberries.
Santa makes an appearance masqueraded as Orange Cranberry Cheesecake, while the Reindeer come along too as Chocolate Hazelnut Roulade. Minted Cookies and Cream Mousse make up the white chocolate topped Christmas Tree.
You thought we were full? Guests experiencing the Premium Tea Party are given a Decadent Chocolate Farewell Truffle.
The Premium Tea Party experience is currently priced at $70.00 per person while the Classic Tea Party is $55.00. The Kids Tea Party is available for guests 10 & under and costs $35.00 per child.
Overall, we are continually baffled on each visit just how full we are when we leave here. The portions are incredibly generous and the caring Cast Members truly make this a dining experience. We know the price tag may be on the higher end, but you get A LOT for your money. Thanks Heather! And Happy Birthday to our friend Gail, who was celebrated with this tea!
