Ahhh breakfast. Our favorite meal of the day. But also, sometimes the hardest to find! If you’re looking for the best breakfast at Walt Disney World, we’re here to share one that no one is telling you about. If you’re not in the mood for a character interaction early in the morning. Not up for dropping a hefty amount of cash. Or just want something more than the standard Starbucks has to offer, choices can be a little slim. Never fear though, we understand and are here to help you out!
Breakfast on the Disney Boardwalk
We are big fans of the Boardwalk area at Walt Disney World and try to frequent it as much as possible. We’ve raved about the Bon Voyage Breakfast and stand by our original opinion that it might just be our favorite character breakfast on Disney property.
But what if we told you that you could actually have that same breakfast, without the characters, without needing a reservation and for a fraction of the price?! It might sound too good to be true, but it’s actually the best kept secret breakfast spot that no one is telling you about. And did we mention they have the best iced coffee in Walt Disney World?! Yep, that’s what we said. Let’s get down to it.
Trattoria al Forno Breakfast
So how do you get this delicious, affordable breakfast? Head down to Trattoria Al Forno and go to the front desk. All you have to do is ask them if they have availability for non-character breakfast. It’s important to know, you cannot reserve this ahead of time. It is a walk-in only meal. That being said, the wait is usually pretty short, 10 minutes or less and you can usually choose to sit inside or outside.
When it’s time to be seated, they will actually take you outside of Trattoria Al Forno, and then into a small room on the other side of the restaurant. The ambiance is quaint and quiet and away from the bustle of the character breakfast next door. With soft Italian music playing in the background, it’s a very relaxing environment.
Trattoria al Forno Breakfast Menu
The food on the menu is actually served a la carte and prices are pretty reasonable by Disney standards. And, if you’re lucky enough to be an annual passholder or DVC member, they honor those discounts too!
We tried the Open Faced Ricotta Omelet and Breakfast Calzone, which are known as the Tangled Eggs and King Triton’s Shipwreck at the Bon Voyage Breakfast respectively. The food is just as delicious as the food we love from the Bon Voyage Breakfast. You can also choose from other delicious options like Pancakes with a berry compote, poached eggs or something a bit more elevated like steak and eggs.
And on top of a delicious meal, the iced coffee here is what dreams are made of. It’s a special blend of Joffrey’s Coffee that was created just for the restaurant, and the iced version is creamy and sweet and everything an iced coffee should be.
So there you have it! If you’re looking for your next favorite breakfast at Walt Disney World, look no further than this cozy little spot on the Boardwalk. We promise you wont regret it.
