Steep at $270? Definitely. But if they continue to include the 'goodies' for the kids, I really don't think the price is all that outrageous. A doll, a music box, a charm bracelet and a charm necklace, PLUS extra charms. Tea and refreshments for 2 people. Exclusive entertainment. Not too shabby in my opinion.

By comparison, Remy dinner for 2, NOT including wine is $150. If you want some wine with that dinner, add another $200 to the price tag. I'm not saying the food isn't out of this world, although it isn't to my taste. I'm just offering a price comparison.

I would love this. We loved tea with Alice. Fun and hilarious. My daughter is 10 though so the doll would not be a thrill for her anymore. Hopefully they would age scale the gift.

I hope this is being offered in November on our cruise! I will be first in line to sign my dd10 up. $270 may seem steep, but for my opinion I believe as a one time splurging it is worth the cost. The included goodies and I can say I daughter would be saying for years to come " do you remember the tea party on the Disney cruise." $270 for an unforgettable memory for a mother - daughter experience is a bargain.

[QUOTE=sunryzez;48816763]I totally miss their high tea, and I would of paid way more then they were charging if they would of kept it...

I wish they had Royal High Tea for adults again also. I would definitely pay extra for that. We did Palo brunch and enjoyed it, but it was not "tea" I think Disney is missing an opportunity here-a cruise should be relaxing and that is what taking tea is all about.

They used to have high tea at Palo. But it was never booked enough. They eliminated the tea so they could expand the brunch hours, which always had a waiting list.

Their child ages are listed as 3-9. But I certainly hope they allow older girls to get a child ticket so that they can get the gifts. If you had a girl 10-12 who did this, let us know.

My daughter myself and my mom did this when it was at the grand Floridian. She was probably 4 and she still talks about it being special. I would do this if I were on the cruise but agree with others that it is a one time splurge. With this being said, I only have one daughter.

I wish it was a little cheaper, but for a one time splurge, if my DD (6) wants to go on our next cruise, I will probably take her. Sounds like a once in a lifetime kind of memory that she wouldn't forget.

I guess i am still in sticker shock, because that seems like an awful lot of money to me for one experience. I am all for the BBB, etc. and have been known to splurge, but i don't think i could justify this (for doll and some charms at a tea party?). That is like a weeks park pass for the kids at WDW. I agree that memories are precious but i can think of a lot of other memories i can make for that type of price. Yikes!

You are definitely lucky to have experienced this for free!
