    Hey everyone,

    I was just doing some more research for our upcoming Disney Cruise, we will be sailing on the Dream in October and we had both heard about the High Tea and Brunch available at Palo. Recently I just read the High Tea had been cancelled and just wanted to find out if it was true?


    Thanks heaps

    Yes there is no more high tea.

    I believe it's discontinued since 2011.

    Strictly speaking, what was served was afternoon tea not high tea (although I k ow it was called 'high tea' at Palo). The brunch is more like the traditional high tea really. I found that most people in the US call this meal high tea, so perhaps it is named differently in the USA. Here is a link explaining the difference between afternoon tea and high tea (in England, anyhow) :)

    The last cruise we went on my wife and I did the high tea and the waitress informed us that it was going away after our cruise. The reason was lack of interest. In fact it was only us and a women by herself in attendance.

    They only allowed a limited number of reservations for the tea. Due to the popularity of brunch, they eliminated the tea to allow extended hours for that. :)

    Brunch was far more popular than the tea, so brunch hours were extended instead of offering the tea.
