Tea is not that good?Originally Posted by Tink, post: 273184
Well, I think I must (we, my wife was with me) have had the single aberrant experience there. The whole tea "thing" was sub par, starting with the rude reception from the woman at the podium. Service was totally weird, with the server spilling things, and dropping things... the scones (which I love dearly; can eat my weight in them) were dry and burnt crunchy on the bottom... The manager was there, and looked a bit bewildered himself... service was rushed, also with one course pushing the other out of the way... we had the High Tea, so were not pleased one bit to be paying that much for such a poor experience, and poor quality food. A shame really.
At the close of the experience we both vowed, never again; that we'd take ourselves to Mt. Dora and the Windsor Rose if we wanted a proper English Tea!
Now, having read of others experiences, I have come to realize that we must have had a "bad day" kind of thing, but it doesn't change the fact that we felt we had been subjected to something significantly less than a Disney experience.
Now, Mizner's... totally different story.
As I said, others have had completely different experiences.
If you are imagining an old Victorian English afternoon tea you will be very disappointedOriginally Posted by Deafjeff, post: 273249
We have been once and I wouldn't do it again. The food wasn't very nice and the tea was so so, the only good thing about it was the company
If you really want to experience it, then go with an open mind and you hopefully won't be disappointed.
Probably true. I had no expectations :tongue: In fact, we had a tea service for my sister's wedding a couple of years ago. Perfectly lovely and I probably would have loved it had I never been to the GF tea but it didn't live up.
It can really hard to try new things when others talk it up so much. There is bound to be disappointment. 'Ohana is my favorite place on property. I love the food, the atmosphere, the whole thing. Is it haute cuisine? no. Is it fun? yes. I have many, many good memories of meeting all sorts of new and old friends there. I know other people hate it.
