The Bon Voyage Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno at Disney’s BoardWalk debuted April 2, 2017 but this character dining experience is very popular and books up quickly, so I was just able to experience it for the first time!
I have eaten at Trattoria al Forno for breakfast and dinner many times under previous restaurant names, as well as dinner at the current Trattoria al Forno, but this Bon Voyage Breakfast is the best experience of them all for food, service and character interaction and is a fun experience for everyone – including your servers who were all having a great time!!
This dining experience offers a pastry service and fruit bowls for everyone with several entrées choose from and, of course, a kids menu too. This is a prix fixe menu and adult and specialty beverages are an additional charge.
I shared this experience with my husband and we ordered the King Triton’s Shipwreck al Forno (Calzone with Scrambled Eggs, Bell Peppers, Salumi, Bacon, Sausage, Blend of Cheeses, and Sunday Gravy – the Sunday Gravy is an Italian tomato sauce) and the Royale Breakfast (Oak-grilled Steak, Cheesy-Egg Torte, and Fonduta with Breakfast Potatoes and crispy Onions). Both options were delicious!
During our meal the Royal Couples were announced and came around to the tables separately. Interaction with each was very personal and fun, especially with Rapunzel and Flynn Rider. However, they were quick to move about when together, so it was a challenge to get a good photo of either Royal Couple – but I managed to get a great shot of Rapunzel and Flynn Rider having a little fun together!
Once all four were announced Ariel and Prince Eric dance around the room with anyone that wants to join in.
And, no worries if you forgot anything for your little Prince or Princess, there is a little store set up just across from the host stand to purchase whatever your Prince or Princess needs.
Of my many character dining experiences, this was one of the best on property and I highly recommend it – especially if you want fun interaction with these Royal Couples! Advance reservations are a must and are currently available via your My Disney Experience account and some Dining Plans are accepted.
