So I’m going to be entirely honest here and say I have a serious love/hate relationship with Character Meals. The practical side of me says they’re great! You don’t have to wait in lines, the characters come to you, what’s not to love?! While the introverted and slightly hungry side of me says, please just leave me alone and let me eat.
Bon Voyage Breakfast at Trattoria Al Forno
I will say however, when you tell me that I could meet both Prince Eric and Flynn Rider in the same setting at the Bon Voyage Breakfast, I don’t care how many times our meal is interrupted, I’ll take it.
Firstly, we’ve never had a chance to meet either of them! So this alone was a unique character meet and greet opportunity. And secondly, well Prince Eric and Flynn Rider, need I say more? That smolder!
If I still haven’t sold you on why you should consider making a breakfast reservation for the Bon Voyage Breakfast, you also get to meet Rapunzel and Ariel, its located on the Boardwalk, which is always a great getaway AND the food is very good.
Ok so first things first. The Bon Voyage Breakfast is located on Disney’s Boardwalk. If you’re not familiar with that area, its located between Epcot and Hollywood Studios and you can read more about that here.
The Food at the Bon Voyage Breakfast
It is in Trattoria Al Forno and is actually one of Walt Disney World’s newest character breakfasts. In our opinion, it may just be one of the best character meals. Yep, that’s right. That’s what I said.
For starters, this is not a buffet. As much as I know people love buffets, trust me when I say, you will get plenty of food. They bring out assorted pastries at the beginning of the meal, give you the option of a fruit cup or yogurt parfait on the middle and the main course is just huge.
I got the Rapunzel pancakes, G got Triton’s Shipwreck Al Forno, which is essentially a gigantic delicious breakfast calzone and Rochelle got the Tangled Eggs.
The pancakes were light and fluffy, the calzone was so flavorful and a really unique offering for breakfast and the eggs, well they’re eggs but good nonetheless if you’re looking for a protein heavy breakfast.
The portion sizes here are pretty generous as well, so you won’t be hungry later on.
I love that its not a buffet personally because I feel that the quality of food is just so much better. And we actually couldn’t finish all of our food because its basically like a 3 course meal.
And honestly, for a character meal, the Bon Voyage Breakfast wasn’t too expensive. For $34/ adult and $20/children 3-9, its definitely one of the more affordable character breakfasts, or meals for that matter. If you read our review of breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table, you will know this is a much less expensive character breakfast. In Walt Disney World standards, its one of the more reasonably priced options.
Do we recommend the Bon Voyage Breakfast?
Yes! We absolutely recommend getting a reservation for the Bon Voyage Breakfast. Not only is it super fun, with characters you don’t usually get to meet, but the food is great, the atmosphere is beautiful and the price point is reasonable enough that it won’t have you regretting splurging on your morning meal.
And really? Flynn Rider’s smolder?? I guess you could call it the start to the best day ever.
Yep, that’s right. We’re letting you see him again. You’re welcome.
