I took my grandaughter to the Princess Tea again this year and was even better than last year. The "Princesses" were so good with the children and their costumes were great. The whole room was nicely decorated and made for a great event.

In my opinion, it is geared towards younger kids. I went with three last year - ages 9, 8 & 6. The 6 year old loved it. The 8 year old was mildly interested. The 9 year old, not so much. Most things were below his height... More
