Royal Court Royal Tea Party on the Disney Cruise Line is a magical way to experience the Disney princesses with your little princess! My family sailed the Disney Dream a few weeks ago, and my daughter and I booked this special experience! It was magical, wonderful, and she was at the perfect age! I can’t wait to share it with you today!
Guests can book the Royal Court Royal Tea Party through the Online Check In Process via the Disney Cruise Line website. I was up at midnight on our online check in day, so I could be sure to get two spots at this experience! It was offered on our day at sea. This made the perfect end to our sailing. During the Online Check In Process, I also booked an appointment for her at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. The tea party was scheduled for 3PM, and so I booked her boutique appointment for 1:45. This gave us plenty of time to get her make over, take a few photos, and check in for our tea party!
When we arrived in our stateroom, there were two things waiting for our daughter. One, was an official looking scroll, with the details of the time and date of the party. It was a special invitation! Also, there was a card in our room. This told us to visit Guest Services so we could tell them her favorite princess. Her choices were Rapunzel, Tiana, or Cinderella. Later, we would find out that they had prepared a cupcake especially for HER, fashioned after her princess of choice. Can you guess which princess she chose?
The Royal Court Royal Tea Party was hosted in the Royal Court dining room, on Deck 3 of the Disney Dream. We arrived about 15 minutes early, to check in. Upon arrival, they gave her a little card to present to the crew member upon entering the tea party. As soon as she handed them the card, they announced, “Welcome Princess Natalie of the Disney Dream”, as she entered the restaurant. Upon arriving at our table, we found it set with snacks, goodies for her, and of course tea cups!
We were led to our table by a host, and it was set for a tea party! At each little girl’s setting was an 18-inch Cinderella doll, a tiara, a jewelry box, a charm bracelet, charm necklace, various charms, and an autograph book and pen. She was SO excited, and so was I! These were such a great gift, and they made perfect souvenirs. So, if you book this on your Disney Cruise, hold off on shopping onboard. Your little one will get some very special gifts during the tea party!
As soon as most everyone was seated, we were introduced to our host and hostess, Lady Chamomile and Chef Brulee. As they entertained us with song and dance, crew members visited our table to take our tea orders and fill our cups with the tea of our choice, or apple juice for the children. They also brought us a tray of finger sandwiches and desserts, perfect to enjoy while we had our tea party!
As we were enjoying our tea and snacks, Lady Chamomile and Chef Brulee entertained us with special songs and dance. Then, the princesses started arriving. One by one, they were announced as their special song played while they entered the room. As each princess entered, she arrived with a basket of charms. She visited each table, giving each girl a charm that was specific to that princess. Then, they made a second round of the room, stopping for autographs and photos.
At the end of our time, we were able to have a special photo shoot with all 3 princesses as we left the Royal Court. This was a very rare photo opportunity, but the fun didn’t end there! That evening, as we made our way back to our room, we found something special waiting for us. In our room was an 8×10 photo of my daughter and the princesses, placed in a nice black leather folder. So pretty!
I have to say, this was quite the experience! It was pricy, and I liken it to the My Disney Girl’s Perfectly Princess Tea Party at the Grand Floridian or similar to an experience at Cinderella’s Royal Table. I am SO glad we did it, as it gave us something fun to do on our day at sea….and my daughter will not be in the princess stage forever! I highly recommend it for your next Disney Cruise! You will be so glad that you booked it!
