I love to take my daughter out to tea. It is a fun activity for us to do together and she loves drinking her fruit tea in a fancy cup and eating scones with butter (I shudder at this!). We have some one-on-one time and I can catch with all the “drama” in the life of an elementary school kid. Hopefully, I will be able to take her for tea in London one day, but for now one of these tea rooms in Orlando will do.
Tea Rooms in Orlando: American Girl
I have been to American Girl numerous times for tea with my daughter. It has sort of become a birthday tradition. Tea comes with mini sandwiches, a fruit kabob, muffins, mini burgers and pigs in a blanket. One of our favorites is the chocolate mousse in a flowerpot for dessert. We have a bunch of those flowers. Of course, your doll also gets a little mini tea set to pretend she is drinking tea too. Tea is only served on weekdays and is a very affordable $13.50 per person. They do have special tea events on weekends like the Wellie Wishers Tea Parties which include crafts and a cupcake decorating activity.

Tea Rooms in Orlando: Celebration Tea Room
The Celebration Tea Room is new-ish Tea Room located near Disney with steampunk inspired décor. They opened the end of October last year. At this tea shop, you are able to get traditional tea with sandwiches, pastries and scones or choose to order from a full menu of sandwiches, burgers and salads. Kids will probably enjoy their Tea Snow, which is like a sno cone made from tea. For traditionalists, just note that they serve their scones with butter, honey and jam, not cream.

Tea Rooms in Orlando: The Tea Room Experience
If you are looking for a traditional tea service, look no further than The Tea Room Experience in downtown Orlando.
