The palms are decked, and the halls are merry, and this holiday season Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort announces an afternoon tea, plus several other decadent indulgences perfect to celebrate the magic of the season.

Holiday Tea

The Winter Wonderland Afternoon Tea will be offered at The Lobby Bar, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, beginning December 1 through 24, 2023, with seating options at 2:00 pm, 2:30 pm, 3:00 pm, and 3:30 pm.  A beautiful celebration, the tea will include musical entertainment and children’s crafts. Guests will enjoy a delightful hot chocolate and candy station, along with a scrumptious selection of traditional tea sandwiches such as Smoked Turkey, Fig Jam and Brie & Apple on freshly baked multigrain bread, as well as Egg Salad on brioche, Smoked Salmon mousse pastry with Hackleback caviar, and Hickory Chicken and Pimento Cheese Cheddar biscuits. A selection of holiday desserts will be offered, including a hazelnut cremino, pistachio dome, raspberry macaron, mango mini tarts, and currant scones.

Younger guests will delight in a festive tea party featuring “Santa's Favorite Sandwiches,” including a ham and cheddar, and an array of freshly baked pastries and scones inspired by none other than Mrs. Claus herself. Children’s desserts include cupcakes, Rice Krispie treats and chocolate mousse cups.

Delicious tea presentations include Jasmine Pearls, Silver Needles, Earl Gray Lavender, Cinnamon Plum, Valerian Dream, Chocolate Chai, and traditional black tea. A cocktail menu infused with teas is also available, as is a list of Champagnes for those who prefer specialty bubbles.

Four Seasons Resort Orlando has partnered with Nemours Children’s Hospital to collect gift donations for the infants, children and teens who are in treatment at the Hospital. Guests attending the tea are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped children’s toy for donation. The Resort team will hand-deliver all gifts to Nemours the week of December 17, 2023.

This enchanting experience is USD 70, which includes one glass of Champagne or a cocktail, or USD 30 for guests ages 2-12.  For reservations, call 407 313 6161.
