    Default Friday Event: 4pm - Grand Floridian Afternoon Tea

    Please join Hammer and I for an afternoon seating of Tea and Scones.

    We will post more details later, but we hope to make one group reservation for this event.

    Hammer is currently talking with WDW now about how to do the group reservation, but if you would let us know if you are planning to attend, that will help us out with this initial planning.

    Stay tuned for more information, and I look forward to having tea with you.

    People who we know have said "yes" to the tea:

    Hammer - 1
    MinnieMommie - 2
    Mouse Fever - 1

    Total so far: 4

    I've placed a call with the Garden View Tea Room to discuss planning our event and I am waiting for a call back. Please note, we will probably have to order off a set menu (sorry, no a la carte) based on my experience. Also, if anyone plans to attend and uses a wheelchair/ECV, let me know. There is a ramp into the Tea room, but only a few tables can accommodate a wheelchair and the table configuration is not conducive to wheeling a chair/ECV through it.

    Sherri,

    You are not allowed to psych me out by posting on this thread and getting my hopes up!

    Count me in for the tea as well! It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon in '07!

    Amy, sorry. I am just so hopeful to join you all! I'm not giving up yet, though I might end up booking late if I do make it, which might rule me out of some special get togethers.

    We'll just have to figure out how to sneak you in to various activities! I'm glad to hear that there is hope!

    Seconded -- and like I said to you last week, you're more than welcome at Liberty Tree Tavern on Friday night or at 'Ohana with all of us Thursday -- or even better, both.

    Okay, so here is the latest-

    Tea will be at either Friday at 4:00 or Saturday at 4:00. Let us know which date is you preference. Leaning towards Friday as to not conflict with Saturday events.

    We will have a selection of 3 teas: Gardenview blend, Princess Breakfast and a 3rd choice which we can determine. I'll list the options here and tell me what sounds good to you.

    We can have on tea option for the whole group or you can choose personal preference. Tell us what you think you will want. Choices have to be finalized 1 week prior to the event.

    Elegant with a refined smooth sweetness.
    A blend of Ceylon and China black teas.

    Russian Earl Grey
    Inspired by the old tradition of shipping tea with lemon for flavor. Made from the rind of spicy Bergamot oranges to give the exotic blend of citrus.

    A mild and sweet tea that is blended with tranquil chamomile and orange blossoms, peppermint and allspice.

    Chamomile
    A tranquil and calming herbal infusion of sweet and fragrant golden chamomile blossoms combined with a smooth, apple-like finish.

    I'm not sure of my exact plans yet, but I just want to stress how fun the tea was last time. I was sort of dragged against my will (if you're reading this, thanks, Cher), but it ended up being perhaps the best part of the whole weekend.

    See you all in a few months!

    I can make either time, and have no real preference on tea etc. Whatever's good for everyone else!
