One of the newest character dining experiences at Walt Disney World is the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno Restaurtant. This restaurant is located on Disney’s BoardWalk – part of Disney’s BoardWalk Resort and only a short walk from Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Our kids were especially excited for this breakfast because the featured characters are from two of our favorite Disney films… The Little Mermaid and Tangled. Also fun is that Prince Eric and Flynn Rider were going to be there! There aren’t a ton of other opportunities to see the royal couples in the parks.
Trattoria al Forno is a lovely Italian restaurant in the evenings (no characters), and the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast offers traditional morning fare along with some heartier, Italian-inspired brunch entrees.
Here is the breakfast menu…
And the kids’ menu…
When you arrive you will notice little cards on the table with the characters’ signatures… so if you forgot your autograph book, you still have a nice souvenir.
Also on the table is a frying pan (Remember the frying pan from Tangled? We know Flynn Rider does!) filled with scrumptious, fresh-baked pastries.
These starters are so beautifully themed for this breakfast. No standard cinnamon roll here! (Not that there is anything wrong with a Disney cinnamon roll!) The muffins are tinted in “Ariel colors”. The red of her hair, green fin, purple top.
This puff pastry sun cookie looks just like the sun Rapunzel painted in her tower.
This “oyster” treat is filled with raspberry jelly and is decorated with a beautiful pearl (sugar-coated chocolate!)
This chocolate twist is braided – a nod to Rapunzel’s beautiful braid.
To go along with the “Bon Voyage” travel theme of the breakfast, you are also treated to an “Adventure Journal”. It prompts you to write about your travels and favorite things that you have experienced at the Walt Disney World Resort. All four of the theme parks are featured on the map.
The “moms” are on vacation, so we had lovely adult breakfast beverages (these are an extra charge). A peach bellini and a mimosa. So delicious!
We tried not to eat too many baked goods since our meal was arriving soon. One of the “starters” was a Berry, Yogurt and Granola Parfait. This was very good and the small granola bar on top was fantastic. I couldn’t keep this one away from my daughter.
The other starter was a fruit salad… nothing special but it is nice to have some fruit in the morning to start the day off on the right food. The “sword” skewer was a cute touch.
Oh… who do I spy coming into the dining room?
Following soon after is his love, the Little Mermaid herself, Ariel.
