Wow, this is vey educational. Thanks! Perhaps in this sense the "high" refers only to the price. Only kidding ) We absolutely plan to go if offered, but it is amusing that the title does not fit the activity. I will now have to read more on this topic

I don't think you came off as pompous . I make "tea" every month for my family for dinner. We have a savory dish (like quiche, shepherd's pie, stew or some other meat dish) but I also serve sandwiches, cream scones and pastries. I don't appreciate locations calling salad and sandwiches "high tea" or scones and tea only "afternoon tea." In my family, we want a meal-that's "high tea" to us. We do not go away hungry from the "tea" I make like we sometimes do from the itty bitty sandwiches served in other places.

If I wasn't the type who would, I wouldn't see the point to sailing DCL without kids in the first place. A large part of the reason I show up is because of the character experience. Add to that that it's something to do that doesn't include nasty swimming pools or getting drunk and I have no problem paying that fee.

As an adult alone I wouldn't pay 69 for a character event with just tea. I can't see many who would, otherwise they would do something like that.

Just one more way DCL is making me feel like I'm not really welcome as part of a family that only consists of 2 adults. I really miss the days when they really did try to make everyone feel like they belonged there.

They will be rolling it out as a regular feature, but it is not currently being offered. We are going in October and are on a list to be called if they start it up before then. No word yet.

We were on the Fantasy the week of July 15. This was offered for the full $270 price. There were about 10 tables and about 2 girls per table. It was cute and my daughter loved it. She is 6. Food wasn't great but when is it ever when you are buying an experience. All the pics they took were added to our photo cd and they delivered a black 8x10 photo folder with the pic of her with all princesses and then two stock photos the evening after the tea. The boys got the grey sword and shield that they give at the BBB. Instead of charms they got pins. I wasn't close enough to the two boys to see what they got instead of a doll and jewelery box.

Through your shoreside concierge. If you are not concierge then there might still availability and you can check with guest services after boarding.

I just got off the ship and wanted to say that I am very thankful that I did not do this with my DD. I know she would have loved it but I saw a little girl and her mother after the tea. The doll was very small and the charm neckless looked very cheep. Maybe the memory for our little girls is worth the $279 but I am so very thankful that I did not do this. Oh and there is only room for 25 girls.

Looks like a great idea but I am not willing to pay that much for it. Maybe $75 but not $270 especially for a doll I can buy for less than $30. I agree that the doll, charm bracelet, jewerly box, autograph book, and crown all look very cheap for the amount of money families are paying for this. If you are going to pay $270 for this than the items the little girls receive should look of quality items not stuff I will find at my local dollar store in a few years time. Sorry if I offended anyone but I feel that DCL is trying to sqeeze every last penny out of every cruiser and that they are not giving the quality back that I would expect of Disney. Now if the doll was of the quality that other posters have said of the Princess Tea at GF than it would justify the price, better quality doll and trinkets, higher price. Makes sense to me.

Royal Court Royal Tea - Which day???

Does anyone know what day the Royal Court Royal tea is held on the Fantasy - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean Itinerary C and Itinerary B?
I am guessing it would definately be a sea day but which one?
Also...
Can one parent take 2 children or is it one child per parent? I can't see my husband enjoying this experience once he finds out the price!

Thanks

Yes, you can take two children. You just pay for the additional child
