Princess Craze Sweeping Walt Disney World Resort
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — It’s a tea party fit for a princess at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Girls are encouraged to attend dressed up in their favorite princess attire and enjoy tea filled with fantasy and delight at My Disney Girl’s Perfectly Princess Tea Party offered in the Garden View Lounge.
Little princesses will get the royal treatment with tea for two, deliciously decorative princess cakes, plus a personal meet-and-greet with Princess Aurora from the classic Disney animated film “Sleeping Beauty.” The enchanting tea party is hosted by Miss Rose Petal, a magical rose from Aurora’s garden that has come to life to lead storytelling, sing-alongs and a princess parade.
But that’s just the beginning of the magical experience. Guests age 3-11 also receive a My Disney Girl doll dressed in a matching Princess Aurora gown, plus accessories. Special princesses also take home their very own ribbon tiara, silver princess link bracelet, fresh rose, special scrapbook set and a Best Friend certificate.
My Disney Girl’s Perfectly Princess Tea Party is offered 10:30 a.m.-noon most days (schedule varies, call 407/WDW-DINE for applicable days and reservations).
