Review of the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno
Located on Disney’s Boardwalk, right outside the Boardwalk Inn is the Trattoria al Forno restaurant. Since April 2017 it has become a character breakfast spot hosting the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast. In my family, it’s better known as the “Rapunzel Breakfast.”
We’re big Rapunzel fans, in fact, I’d even dare to say she’s our favorite princess. My 7-year-old daughter thinks she’s cool and artistic, my son has a crush on her, my husband thinks I like her because she doesn’t wear shoes, and he thinks she’s funny because when you used to meet Rapunzel at Fairytale Hall with Cinderella she always took longer because she was chatty.
Needless to say, I had big hopes for this character breakfast.
Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast Begins
When you walk in there is a merchandise cart filled with Rapunzel items that you can purchase. You are then lead to your table where you quickly receive themed pastries served in a black frying pan (what else would Rapunzel use??!) for the table to share as well as individual bowls of fruit.
The breakfast has Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, Ariel and Prince Eric.
All of the characters come around the table and sign autograph books and take pictures. Sometimes they will also stop on their way to the back of the restaurant (where they begin) and make small talk or a quick conversation.
The Breakfast Menu
Most character meals are a buffet, which makes this one a little different. It isn’t all-you-can-eat but the portions are big, and the pastries that are brought to the table are refillable. Since it’s not a buffet you also don’t have to worry about missing the characters because you were up getting food. I would even venture to say that the food was better than your regular buffet line up.
We tried King Triton’s Shipwreck al Forno, Tangled Eggs, and the Little Royal Breakfast.
My husband enjoyed King Triton’s Shipwreck al Forno which is like a giant breakfast calzone. I had the Tangled Eggs, which were absolutely amazing! The Sunday Gravy (marinara sauce) with the basil was just incredible. I would have never ever thought about marinara or basil with my eggs but it works. The kids aren’t big breakfast eaters, so it was a big plus that steak was an option. It does come with an egg shaped like a fish and some fruit but they both just ate the steak. I tried it and it was seasoned perfectly.
The characters make their way around to the tables and are very chatty as they try and make a connection with everyone. During breakfast, there is also a parade to kick off your own adventure where kids follow behind the characters dancing and clapping.
Verdict On The Bon Voyage Breakfast
We loved it. The food was great and the characters are a lot of fun. It will definitely be somewhere that we try again. It is $34/adult and $20/child (ages 3-9). There is a passholder discount available, and they do participate in the Disney Dining Plan. On this trip, we used the Disney Dining Plan which saved us a lot! If you’re looking for great food and characters this breakfast is totally worth it!
