    Is the afternoon tea at the grand floridian worth doing? I mean it's not cheap really for what you get?

    We've done this once and it was nice to experience, but I wouldn't do it again.

    It is served in the Garden View Lounge at the GF and it's a bit like a Disney take on an English High Tea.

    I think we had the Buckingham Palace, which includes tea as well as sandwiches, a scone with cream and a choice of two desserts.

    It was nice, but as you say expensive.

    We went a few years ago and I wouldn't go again, I don't think they do it as good as we do.

    I agree with that statement. :yes:
    It`s ok to give it a try at least once, but I`m not in any rush to make a return visit.

    We have done this a couple of times and thoroughly enjoyed it. However, we have nothing with which to compare it as we did not get to do an afternoon tea while we were visiting the UK.
