My Disney Girl’s Perfectly Princess Tea PartyKim Inman
What little girl doesn’t dream of being a princess? What little girl doesn’t love tea parties? My Disney Girl’s Perfectly Princess Tea Party combines them both into a magical event that your little princess will never forget. At the age of 3, my daughter is all about playing dress up, having tea parties, and meeting the princesses. So it seemed to be a perfect mother-daughter outing.
My Disney Girl’s Perfectly Princess Tea Party takes place in the Garden View Tea Room at the Grand Floridian. This tea party is for children ages 3-12. The little girls are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite princess. There were several girls in princess costumes, but several also just dressed up instead of taking the princess route. They all looked beautiful and the smiles on their faces lit up the room.
Upon checking in at the Tea Party, you are given a card with your little princess’ name on it. The guests all anxiously wait in the lobby until it is time for the party to begin. After an announcement they introduce Rose Petal who served as the hostess for the remainder of the party. Each girl was called one at a time by name…and that was when the magic began! Rose Petal welcomed each little girl to the tea party by sprinkling them with rose petals and placing a beautiful tiara upon their head. Then we were escorted to our table.
At that point my little girl’s eyes began sparkling with excitement as she saw what was waiting for her. There was a beautiful Disney Girl doll dressed in a princess Aurora dress sitting in her chair. She immediately picked up her baby doll and gave her the biggest hug you can imagine. We took our seats and sat looking at the details around the room. We were seated right next to the piano where Baron Branch sat playing various Disney music. Baron Branch came to our table and talked to my daughter. He asked her what her favorite Disney movie was. She quickly responded Beauty and the Beast. He told her to listen carefully and at some point he would play her a song from Beauty and the Beast.
Our table was decorated with a beautiful flower arrangement with a place card beside it announcing which princess was to sit at that table. There were also tea cups with a folded napkin inside them.
After all the girls are seated Rose Petal comes in and begins telling her story. She tells about how she was once a rose, who is turned human. She then instructs the girls to unfold their napkins and place them in their laps. When they do this another surprise awaits them as a pretty little charm bracelet drops out. It had a pretty little pink heart on it. This is a special gift from Princess Aurora.
Lunch is served. The adults were served green tea, while the little princesses were served a special apple tea (AKA apple juice) in their very own tea pot. The children also receive peanut butter and jelly sandwiches cut in the shape of hearts, turkey and cheese sandwiches, grapes, strawberries and mickey shaped sprinkles. The adults received an assortment of sandwiches, cheese, and fruit.
The whole time we were eating Rose Petal entertained us with singing and stories. She even taught the girls how to sing “Hail to the King, hail to the Queen, hail to the Princess Aurora” in sign language. By this time almost everyone has finished eating and Rose Petal asked about birthday celebrations. We sang Happy Birthday, and cake was served. As Rose Petal finished up her part, she called the girls together in the center of the room to greet princess Aurora. Princess Aurora comes in and the girls showed her the sign language song that they learned. Then she led them in a parade around the room.
The girls went back to their seats to finish eating while Rose Petal and Aurora make their way around the room signing autograph books and posing for pictures with each little girl. As Aurora comes around, her Page goes with her carrying a basket of real roses. Each little girl receives a rose from Aurora as she signs their books, and the back of their place cards.
Aurora says good bye and the girls are told to line up for a Princess Parade through the lobby. As they walk through the lobby the employees all stop what they are doing to say hi to the princesses and to wave at them. The girls are lead up the huge staircase to the second floor where they get their picture taken with the Aurora Doll. They are then ushered into the gift shop where they get to name their doll, and receive a best friend certificate and scrapbook page kit.
My Disney Girl’s Perfectly Princess Tea Party is full of surprises and magic from the start until the final moment. Every little girl there feels like a princess for the day and enjoys getting some royal treatment. They also receive some amazing gifts that will serve as precious souvenirs of a magical morning spent with Princess Aurora and Rose Petal. The only problem? Your little girl is going to want to do it every time you go to Walt Disney World. I know mine is wanting to do it again!
