Breakfast on the Disney Boardwalk

The Trattoria al Forno Restaurant is located right on the Disney Boardwalk and offers both indoor and outdoor seating, overlooking the Boardwalk Area. Perfect for easy mornings, you can sip your coffee and people watch. We are big fans of the Disney Boardwalk area at Walt Disney World simply because it offers calm away from the chaos. And in the mornings, you can see the birds, watch the boats, or stroll around in the great weather. While there are plenty of places to eat on the Disney BoardWalk, Trattoria al Forno is one we return to often for both breakfast and dinner. Here we’ll share all the details you need to know so you can plan your next meal at this amazing Disney Restaurant.

Trattoria al Forno Restaurant

Trattoria al Forno serves breakfast, dinner and also offers Table Service Meals to Go. This Italian restaurant on the Disney Boardwalk is the official Table Service Restaurant at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn Resort and offers breakfast and dinner, as well as services the Disney Adult Lounge next door, AbracadaBar, in the evenings. Serving Italian foods in an old world atmosphere you can even find Disney World’s smallest Hidden Mickey in the lettering of the logo behind the check in desk. ( Can you see it? At the bottom of the first “A” in Trattoria?).

Offering an extensive wine list, Italian cocktails, regional specialties, and an open kitchen allowing you to view the fired ovens, this is one of our favorite places to eat to feel at home and at ease. Budget friendly prices, a Kid’s Menu and the best staff and service lend to what makes this one of the best restaurants on the Disney Boardwalk.

Do You Need Reservations for Trattoria al Forno?

We always recommend planning ahead and making Dining Reservations at Disney World. However,  Trattoria Al Forno is often an overlooked restaurant making it one of the better Disney Restaurants for Last Minute Dining at Disney World. Generally, while we love the table service restaurants on the Boardwalk, but they aren’t usually among the most talked about restaurants, so scoring a reservation is usually pretty easy. You can easily walk up to the check in desk to check the wait time, or add your name to the walk-up list on the My Disney Experience App. 

Does Trattoria al Forno have a Dress Code?

The dress code at Trattoria al Forno is considered casual. As such you can simply come as you are. Mind you swimwear is not acceptable but theme park wear is adequate. Of course dressing for dinner can also be fun, so it can be as casual or dressy as you like, as long as the clothing isn’t offensive, you will be okay. 

Trattoria al Forno Hours

Trattoria al Forno closes midday for lunch, and are only open for Breakfast and Dinner. Though keep in mind that if you’re ordering a To Go Meal from here that your order will need to be placed in the My Disney Experience App usually by 4pm. The same goes for Adding your name to the Walk Up List if you haven’t already made a reservation. 

  • Breakfast: 7:30 AM to 11:30 AM
  • Dinner: 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Trattoria Al Forno Atmosphere

Trattoria Al Forno is cozy and warm. This welcoming space can be a little dark at times, but it adds to the ambiance. You can also watch the kitchen staff from your table, as the kitchen is half exposed over the counter, so you get a good view of the ovens. Plus, you often have the opportunity to sit outside too if you prefer a more al fresco dining situation.  So depending on what the Orlando weather is doing, you have options! If sitting outside, just beware of the birds. They can get a little wild when they see food! We had no issues when we chose to sit outside. But we did see a bird take some of our leftovers the minute we left.

Trattoria Al Forno Breakfast

Thinking of a nice sit down restaurant at Disney World for breakfast? Well, with specialty dishes, and the best iced coffee at Disney World, Trattoria al Forno may sound too good to be true, but it’s actually the best-kept secret breakfast spot at Walt Disney World that no one is telling you about. Breakfast is served 7:30 AM to 11:30 AM, and there are usually tables open for walk ups. And did we mention they have the best-iced coffee in Walt Disney World?! And it’s cheaper than Starbucks. Yep, that’s what we said.

Bon Voyage Character Breakfast- Temporarily Unavailable

Trattoria Al Forno was home to the Bon Voyage Breakfast but that Disney character breakfast has not yet returned to the restaurant. As such, mornings here are much quieter! And what a lot of people didn’t know is that you could actually have that same breakfast, without the characters, without needing a reservation, for a fraction of the price.

We’ve raved about the Bon Voyage Character Breakfast with Ariel and Rapunzel, and stand by our original opinion that it might just be our favorite character breakfast on Disney property. Featuring Ariel, Rapunzel, Prince Eric and Flynn Rider this is a fun morning, featuring rare characters at Disney World, and we had the best time! Plus, of course the food is amazing. If this character breakfast at Disney returns we’ll let you know! 

Breakfast at Trattoria Al Forno

Trattoria al Forno Breakfast Menu

The menu at Trattoria al Forno is based on Italian regional fare, and for breakfast, that’s a great thing! We’ve eaten here multiple times at this point and never once have we tried a dish we didn’t like. We’re big fans of everything on the menu! Seriously, everything. 

The Caprese Omelet is perfectly fresh and delicious! The tiramisu bread pudding and buttermilk pancakes with compote are perfect for those wanting something sweet to start their day. And the avocado toast is always a winner. The steak and eggs and the breakfast pizza are also great choices for those who might want something a little heartier for breakfast. And don’t forget the iced coffee! Or if you prefer something a little stronger in the morning, Trattoria Al Forno also serves mimosas, Bellinis and Bloody Marys. Browse the Trattoria al Forno Breakfast Menu for all the choices and our favorite dishes below!

Does Trattoria al Forno Have a Kids Menu?

Yes, Trattoria al Forno is good for kids too and has a kid’s menu. So if you’re bringing kids to Trattoria al Forno, which why not, then you’ll be happy to see Mickey Waffles, Pancakes, egg dishes and yogurt on the menu at under $10. So you can have a great breakfast before your day at Disney, and start the day calmly with a nice meal! Such a blessing! 

Breakfast at Trattoria Al Forno

Avocado Toast

If you’re looking for something fresh and healthy, and will help you forget you’re surrounded by theme park food, then the Avocado Toast at Trattoria al Forno is just what you need. This is a delectable breakfast dish, filled with loads of nutrients, and really hits the spot if you’re looking for something savory for breakfast. This is a soft yet crusty sourdough bread, topped with Avocado, Red Pepper Hummus, Cremini Mushrooms, Balsamic Vinaigrette, Arugula, and Everything Spice. 

A  big surprise for us with this Avocado Toast dish was that it’s probably an entire avocado, and more fresh veggies than you usually get anywhere in Disney World. And it was much better than the avocado toast over at Cinderella’s Royal Table that is 3x the cost. This breakfast at Disney World was $13 and so so good.

Tiramisu Bread Pudding

As an Italian restaurant, there are a few things you can always count on here and one of them is Tiramisu. We were blown away by the richness of this breakfast dish. A Tiramisu Bread Pudding with all the things you need to get through the day at Disney. Made and topped with Mascarpone Cream and served with Espresso Drizzle, this dish is not too sweet, and pretty filling! Served with choice of Bacon or Sausage you’ll be getting plenty of protein in this meal. Absolutely one of our favorite dishes at Trattoria.

Caprese Omelet

While you can definitely grab any old Omelet at the omelet stations at your resort or any Character Breakfast at Disney World, nothing will compare to this Caprese Omelet at Trattoria al Forno. Freshly made to order, this eggy delight is filled Mozzarella, Ripened Tomatoes, Fresh Basil, and Breakfast Potatoes. You have a choice of Bacon or Sausage, or can substitute that for another veggie or fruit. 

The potatoes at Trattoria are the most delicious things, perfectly fried, soft on the inside and toasted and crispy on the outside, they’re just perfect! This complete breakfast is just $17 and completely worth it. One of our favorite healthy and hearty meals for breakfast on the Disney Boardwalk. 

Breakfast Pizza at Trattoria al Forno

Sunrise Breakfast Pizza

Okay, now to the showstopper meal of Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno; The Sunrise Breakfast Pizza. While we’ve had a similar pizza for breakfast at Ale and Compass ( another favorite restaurant) this one comes with a lush sourdough wood fired crust, and a sausage gravy base that is to die for! So delicious, this breakfast pizza includes Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Sausage, Bell Peppers, and Cheese. Topped with an oil and basil drizzle, there is a ton of flavor here. 

As you can see, this pizza is plate size, with four large pieces to enjoy. And while it’s big enough to share, don’t plan on it, because it’s so good, you’ll just want to eat it all yourself. At an alarming cheap price of $14 this really is the best breakfast dish and ticks all the boxes for protein, and nutrients you’ll need for a busy Disney day. 

Latte at Disney Trattoria Al forno Breakfast

Trattoria al Forno Coffee and Juice

Included with your breakfast are assorted fountain drinks, including Juice! And freshly brewed Italian style Joffrey’s coffee. While specialty drinks like the Iced Coffee, Watermelon No-Jito, Cappuccino or Latte, Mimosas, Bellini’s, and Bloody Mary all cost extra, we love the you can get your basics for FREE. 

Trattoria Al Forno Breakfast

Trattoria al Forno Iced Coffee

Another AMAZING reason to have breakfast at Trattoria al Forno is the Iced Coffee. Believe it or not, this is just the best thing we ever tasted! A mix of a special blend of Artisan Coffee, Cream, and Sweetener served over Ice, this tall glass of delicious comes topped with cream, and costs less than $5. But as you can see from the pics, is so much fancier, and better, than any coffee you could get in the parks. We get the iced coffee every time we come here, and recommend you do too! You won’t regret it!

Trattoria al Forno Cost

One of the best things about breakfast at Trattoria al Forno is the cost. With delicious entrees that range from $14- $21 dollars it’s equivalent to what you would spend on a quick service  meal at your resort or anywhere in the parks. And that higher price point is for the Steak and Eggs dish, so you know you’re getting the most budget-friendly Disney dining here. Alcoholics Specialty Drinks range between $13-15 per glass and include a variety of options. The Kid’s Menu at Trattoria al Forno offers meals for $10 and under, and includes a variety of egg dishes, yogurt, Mickey waffles and pancakes. 

Does Trattoria al Forno Take Discounts?

Yes! If you’re lucky enough to be an annual pass holder or DVC member, then Trattoria al Forno offers a 10% Discount for Disney Passholders, and DVC members with up to 3 guests. While this food isn’t expensive, the discount covers the taxes, and allows you a cushion to leave a better tip too! Because the service here is simply fantastic. 

Disney Boardwalk Resorts at Walt Disney World

How to Get to Trattoria Al Forno on the Disney Boardwalk

There are a lot of ways to get to the Disney Boardwalk from across Disney World property. So if you’re hoping to head to Trattoria al Forno for breakfast, the ease of getting there depends on where you staying.

By Walking

  • If you’re staying at a Boardwalk Area resort, you can easily walk there along there along the water. Or take the ferry from one end of Crescent Lake to the other. BoardWalk Area Resorts include Yacht Club, Beach Club, Boardwalk Inn, Swan Hotel, Dolphin Hotel, and the Swan Reserve. 

From the Disney Skyliner

  • Or if you’re staying at a Skyliner Resort, you can hop on the Skyliner and disembark at the Epcot International Gateway stop. And then you can walk there; just turn right off the Skyliner ramp and then left at the bridge to head to the restaurant area.
  • From EPCOT, you can exit through the International Gateway in between the France and the UK pavilions to get to the Boardwalk. 

By Disney Bus

If you’re staying on the BoardWalk or the Skyliner line, then you can grab a Disney Bus to the BoardWalk Inn from any park or Disney Springs. Once you arrive, simply go through the Boardwalk Inn lobby to head out to the Boardwalk. Trattoria al Forno is on the right hand side of the Boardwalk in the restaurant area.  

By Car

If you’re driving, then you can park at the Disney Boardwalk Inn, as long as you have a dining reservation, which you’ll need to tell the attendant at the gate, so they can confirm the reservation. And of course you can also just take an Uber or Lyft if that’s easier. 

Table Service To Go at Trattoria al Forno

Trattoria al Forno offers Table Service To Go Meals for Dinner. And while we love the to go menus we’ve been able to enjoy at Walt Disney World recently, this one is a bit odd. You can order dinner through their to go menu, but you have to get those orders in before their actual dinner service begins. Keep this in mind if you don’t want to have a table service meal, but still want something delicious to enjoy at the Boardwalk.  Most to go orders are cut off around 4pm. Otherwise you’ll either need to make a reservation or join the walk up list.  Finding food on the Boardwalk can be a tricky task at times, so plan ahead!

Is Trattoria al Forno good for kids?

Yes! It may not have the characters they once did, but it’s still an excellent spot. They do have a full kid’s menu, along with an a la carte menu if you want to build your own breakfast for little ones. And with booth and table seating there are good seating options for kids of all ages. We also love that this restaurant comes with the token coloring sheet placemat and crayons, making it feel extra special for kids.
