    My dd's 41st bdy is coming up in September and the Aurora fanatic she is, she wants to have tea with her. Any idea which venue that is in. I think it's the same as Alice's tea party, but am not sure. Going to have Breakfast with Eeyore at Crystal Palace, but she still wants tea with Aurora later. Thanks for any help on this.

    The tea is held in the Grand Floridian hotel in the same lounge that used for the afternoon tea. We did this event a few years ago and it was amazing (although expensive). My daughter loved it and walked around singing princess songs for the longest time. I would highly recommend it.

    Is that a typo? $250.00??? For tea for 2? That seems ridiculously high even for a character interaction.

    It is high, but also includes a Disney Doll in the Auora dress. The little girls are dressed in princess costumes and are first crowned upon entry to the "ballroom".

    They are entertained a long time by Rose Petal, who visits with each. When Aurora arrives, she visits each table for autographs and pictures and then the little girls parade around the room to music.

    Additional adults are about $65 to $75 as I remember. A one time experience, but well worth the cost. It must have lasted 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

    After the tea, you could purchase additional princess outfits in the gift shop upstairs for half price.

    I didn't realize that it included a doll and costume and such. Still though, I think that's a little much cost-wise.

    The doll is comparable to an American Girl doll (Disney's version), and costs $100+ if you were to buy it in a gift shop. The price also includes one of the little Disney charm bracelets (the kind they sell in all the gift shops), and it has a little pink crystal heart on it. They also crown each little girl with a simple little crown. Tea is served (I think it's apple juice for the little ones), along with little kid friendly tea sandwiches and fruit. Adults get a piece of lavosh or bread, I think, several cheeses and some fruit. Also, cake is served at the end.

    It is a LONG affair - at least an hour.

    IF you want the doll, it's well worth the money. Rose Petal is an amazing performer, and she's very sweet with all the little ones. The little girls really love dancing around the room with Aurora - it's very sweet.

    If you're not at all interested in the doll, you won't be getting your money's worth.

    DD and I did this two trips ago. It was very well done. Was it worth the high price? I don't know, Disney prices are high on just about everything, so in WDW terms I suppose it was. I'd never pay that amount in 'real life' though. Still, I'm glad we were able to fit it into the budget. DD really enjoyed it.

    Unlike Alice's tea party, this is more of a one-time thing. We won't ever repeat it. At only around $30 Alice's tea party is something DD can do every trip for as long as she cares to. The Aurora tea party is a once in a lifetime type event, IMO.

    Is that the doll in the picture? Does it really cost over 100 bucks on its own?

    Yes, that's the doll. I don't know what she costs retail, but I think the outfits are around $20+ each. When you buy her in the store she's wearing shorts and a tshirt. We bought the Minnie outfit and the Jasmine outfit for DD's doll.
