    I've always wanted to do this but never seem to find the time, I believe you can book it under the 0nline reservations though.

    I've done it before and loved it 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

    We have done this both with and without grandchildren and find it a delightful experience.

    There is a menu: Here

    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. 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!

    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.
