Children ages 4-10 attend a "tea party" with the Mad Hatter and Alice; they decorate cupcakes, drink "tea" (apple juice) and play games. PhotoPass photographers attend to the party to capture your child's fun. The price is approximately $42.60 including tax, and adults are not allowed.
We were lucky to attend this party in 2009. Things have changed slightly since we last attended, but it was a huge highlight of the trip for my daughter (Claire).
We checked in about 20 minutes prior to the party's start time. We also brought along our autograph book for the characters to sign. Parents were allowed to come in and make sure their child got seated and then the children waved us off. I actually lingered to take a few more pictures and my daughter told me it was time for me to leave!
Claire talked about this experience non-stop. We do plan to do it again!
You can make this reservation 180 days out by calling (407) WDW-DINE or ask you Mouse World Travel Agent to do this for you. There is a cancelation policy and you will be charged a cancelation fee if you cancel less than 24 hours beforehand. Payment is due at check in, but a credit card is needed to hold your child's place.
We highly recommended giving this party a try. Boys and girls can attend, but I have found that it is usually mostly girls. Costumes are optional as well, but many do wear them.
