Disney Cruise Line is currently testing a new experience aboard the Disney Fantasy called Royal High Tea in Royal Court. The high tea includes a Princess character experience. This special offering should not be confused with Tea with Alice. In fact, according to an email I received from Disney Cruise Line, the Royal High Tea experience is very similar to the My Disney Girl’s Perfectly Princess Tea Party experience at Walt Disney World’s Grand Floridian Resort.
Pricing for Royal High Tea is currently $270 for one adult and child. Each additional child is $210 and an adult is $69.
For now, Royal High Tea is just in a test phase until July 13th on the Disney Fantasy, and may be expanded fleet-wide. Since this is just in a testing phase the details and pricing is subject to change. I would say if you are sailing on the Disney Fantasy in the next couple weeks and you are interested in Royal High Tea to check with Guest Services on Saturday when you board the ship.
If you were one of the lucky few who experienced Royal High Tea last week, we would love for you to leave a comment.

UPDATE | I wanted to update this article with a price comparison Royal High Tea versus My Disney Girl’s Perfectly Princess Tea Party. It is important to keep in mind that the Grand Floridian tea will include tax and 18% gratuity.
While the base price for tea at Walt Disney World (Children $167.24 Adults $79.24) is less than Royal High Tea, the difference is quickly made up once tax and gratuity added.
I did not include additional gratuity on the Disney Cruise Line calculation because it is not automatically added to my knowledge.
UPDATE August 28, 2013 | Thanks to Heather, who left a mini-review in the comments below, we have some photos from an early Royal Court Royal Tea aboard the Disney Fantasy. The first set of photos shows the unique items presented during Royal Tea.
This set of photos are a sampling of the photos taken by Shutters, complete with a custom Royal Tea border from the Princess Meet & Greet opportunity.
