I've done it before and loved it :yes: It's a great way to spend an hour out of the sun and heat and just relax. It was the first time I had clotted cream (which to me sounded, well sort of gross) and I have to tell you they could have skipped the strawberries under it and just given me the cream :lol:

We have done this both with and without grandchildren and find it a delightful experience.
There is a menu: Here (http://allears.net/menu/menu_gft.htm)
We are the lone voice that will tell you we were seriously displeased. I've come to think they were having a bad day, since everyone else loves the place.
Rude and bossy person at the podium. Dry and crunchy scones served out of service order. Old sandwiches, curling bread, desultory service... the only thing we did like about it was the champagne... We'll not do it again.

You're not alone Tink, I wasn't that impressed and didn't like the pompous waiter. The kids loved it as they got their own tea pots but for the money I was really disappointed.
We said that for the money, we'd drive to Mt. Dora and go to the Windsor Rose where there is a proper high tea. :yes: The server we had spilled wine and tea at the table next to ours. Disrupted our "meal" but made a wicked mess out of the other table. They weren't too impressed either!
ummm... sounds like its just one of those things....
I have to say I feel that way about Chef Mickeys.... will not be going back, however I keep reading how everyone finds it just fantastic...
Chef Mickey's is only for the characters. We didn't care for the food at all. For that kind of price, we'll see the characters in the park! LOL.
well Tink.. not even for the character experience..... we had a much better time at the other character breakfasts...

I've always found crystal palace the best for interaction
Ah, I see. We've not been to Chef Mickey's in ages. The last time was two (maybe more! :eek: ) years ago when young Max and his parents were visiting. We did the lunch there (it was new at the time). Not impressed with the food at all, but Max had fun with the characters...
I think the very best interaction at a meal we've ever had was at Cape May's Breakfast Buffet. :yes:
For us it was Ohana's.... truly magical!
Crystal Palace is a close second!
Gosh, i cant believe how brave she was, doesnt look at all worried in the slightest! isabelle almost crawled ontop of my head at the parade, i cant imagine what she would do that close to the characters!!!
I love the shot of Tatiana peering out from under Pluto's head! :yes: She is such a beautiful little girl!
Kate, she loved the characters! all of them! :)
Thank you Tink :) That shot was AFTER Pluto asked her to rub his belly, hahahaha... they had a good time on the floor :)
