Disneyland Resort
NEW: Afternoon Tea at the Disneyland Hotel
January 5, 2016
Author: Kimberly Fidler

"We love Disneyland history and looking back at memories over the years. This article is no longer being updated, but is a great way to look back and see what was happening at Disneyland when this was originally published."

Something extra fancy is coming to The Disneyland Hotel. Next week, beginning January 22, Steakhouse 55, will offer afternoon tea service. This is the only tea service offered at the Disneyland Resort, and it is sure to be a unique way to unwind from the hustle and bustle of the parks. Steakhouse 55, which is normally open for breakfast and dinner only, is known for its swanky feel and gourmet food. The restaurant was inspired by Walt's early years in California and themed after Old Hollywood. White tablecloths, dark mahogany, and classic photos from days past will make you feel like you've stepped back in time. We are so excited that guests at the Disneyland Resort will now have even more opportunities to enjoy this hidden gem! Three different tea party offerings will be available at Steakhouse 55. Although they won't quite be mad, I'm sure that Alice would approve!

The Classic Tea Party

Just like in a traditional high tea, you'll find an assortment of scones, tea sandwiches, miniature desserts, teas and herbal infusions at the Classic Tea Party. The Classic Tea Party is available for $50 per person.

The Premium Tea Party

If you really want to indulge, make a reservation for the Premium Tea Party which includes everything that the Classic Tea Party serves, plus Mickey-shaped scones, salad, sparkling wine and a farewell truffle. The Premium Tea Party at Steakhouse 55 is available for $65 per person. Guests 21 and older will also be able to order aperitifs, wines by the glass, ports and cordials for an additional charge with either the Classic or Premium Tea Party.

The Kids' Tea Party

Small princes and princesses will have the opportunity to practice their manners and feel extra fancy with their own tea party. The Kids' Tea Party includes scones, Mickey shaped tea sandwiches, desserts, herbal infused teas, milk or hot chocolate. The Kids' Tea Party is available for $35 per person.

Theresa- We're sorry to hear the experience at Goofy's Kitchen wasn't what you were expecting! Did you make your dietary needs known before the special event? You can also check menus online prior to your next visit so you can make the best choice for your family: https://disneyland.disney.go.com/dining/?int_cmp=INS-intDLRtoDLR-Dining We hope your next visit is memorable for better reasons. Please let us know if we can help!

I’m also wondering about the gf vegan options. I did not find Disneyland very accommodating when we were there last summer. We went to goofys kitchen dinner buffet at Disneyland hotel and it was the worst dining experience I’ve ever had in my entire life. There were very few options for my child who is gluten free and dairy free. There were a ton of dessert options for others and one for us. His choice for dinner were a few meats, vegetables, and salad. My young son doesn’t like salad. I’m cautious about eating at Disneyland now because of our horrible experience. My son was very upset and we had to stop somewhere else for him to get food because he was still very hungry after the poor number of choices. For the exorbitant price we paid I found this unacceptable. My point is beware when they say they have options. I wish they’d give more information ahead so you can know if it’s worth it to make a reservation or. If anyone knows exactly what these options are for gf and vegan I’d love to find out. Thanks

Hi Tammy, That's a great question. We don't know the specifics on that, but we do know that Disney is VERY accommodating to dietary needs and restrictions. When you call to make your reservations, just be sure to let them know at that time. You'll also let your host know when you check-in for your reservations.

I have a Vegan teen, what would be her options if I took her to tea?

Thank you.
