"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 This article is no longer being updated, but is a great way to look back and see what was happening at Disneyland when this was originally published."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.
