Recently, I shared that an all-new character dining experience will be coming to Trattoria al Forno at Disney’s BoardWalk. Today, I’m excited to share guests who choose to enjoy the Bon Voyage Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno will have the opportunity to meet beloved Disney characters including Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, Ariel and Prince Eric.

Breakfast will begin with your choice of a mixed berry parfait or fresh fruit salad and a frying pan of pastries featuring braided breakfast bread and clam shell pastries.

  • How does one get there? and after you’re done, could you enter Epcot, which looks close on the map, through the World Showcase? Is there a entry that way? and are you allowed to walk through World Showcase before it officially opens?

  • Does anyone know if this dinning experience can be done Vegan? We have 2 Vegans,3 Vegetarians and 5 omnivores in our party. We may not all want to eat the same place but seeing if this would be an option.

  • A reservations required or just highly recommended? I only booked our trip over the weekend for Sept 2nd – Sept 5th what are my chances of getting this breakfast for my 3year olds birthday?

  • Hi! I want to try this for my daughter however, it is very meat heavy. Will the chef’s work with the menu for someone who can only eat chicken or turkey?

  • We are staying at the Art of Animation Resort in November. What would be the best way to get to the Boardwalk for Breakfast? We will be driving down, so we will have our own vehicle – so driving ourselves will be an option; or of course there is always the bus transportation – but I feel like we would have to bus hop a couple of different times/locatons .. Suggestions/Advice?

  • So exited! We just heard about this character breakfast on a Disney blog and were able to book our first time choice for August 3rd using the My Experience app. We had reservations at Ohana, but my adult daughter doesn’t care for the food offerings there. Where else could we sit down, enjoy a table served meal, AND see Prince Eric and Flynn Rider (Eugene)? Sooooo thrilled!

  • How long does this breakfast last? I’m trying to plan for the rest of the day…

  • So, are Flynn and Rapunzel There currently?? As in April 1st? Cuz I booked our wedding dinner specifically for them after being told they’d be there

  • Hi Rachel,
    Will my 14yr dd be able to order the children’s meal if we are paying oop?

  • I just made a reservation! My kids will be so excited to have breakfast with both princes and princesses! Looking forward to a new character meal!

  • Already booked and I’m totally looking forward to taking the family to this in June!!

  • This will be great!! I will be scheduling the first day I am able for my upcoming trip.
    ********I would also LOVE a character breakfast with Phineas and Ferb, Agent P and DR Doofensmirtz. ************ Love them! I think this would be a huge hit.

  • I have been checking for availability on the Disney app as often as I could and just snagged a reservation in April. Don’t give up!! Just check throughout the day when you can… you never know what availablity may randomly pop up!! 🙂

  • I was so shocked to see the reservations early. However after speaking to someone on the phone, he told me if someone already had breakfast reservations before the character dining was released, they were already in for the character dining. So how many open reservations could there really have been? No chance for April.

  • I love an occasional character breakfast, but this was the best breakfast choice at boardwalk. What other options for full service a la carte breakfast is there now? Thanks

  • No problem reserving for August 3rd today. I guess I got lucky. My two teens favorite characters Rapunzel and Ariel.

  • Super bummed! ☹️ I anticipated reservations to open March 1 and planned my day around hopefully securing a reservation! I saw at 11:45 am today booking started yesterday and called on my lunch hour and completely gone for not only my trip in April but also August! Extremely disappointed!

  • Wow. All reservations are already booked up!

  • I was anticipating booking on March 1st like the original post stated. Now I see reservations opened up sooner than that date and it is now sold out for the week of our vacation. Will there be more availability opening up on March 1st for the people who were waiting to book as originally told?

  • Any idea when the reservations will update to the correct name in MDE or if they even will! I think all of us who made reservations early this morning will be much more comfortable once we see “Bon Voyage” show up on our plans. Thanks so much.

  • Earlier when calling to make a reservation I was told there was a glitch in the system not allowing representatives to book. I was advised to keep checking the app to see if the problem resvoled. Still has not 3 hours later… any idea on when this issue will be solved & booking will be available??

  • Constant error message when I try to book, what’s the trick? 🙁

  • We leave on April 1st, any chance of this starting early? We really were hoping to go.

  • On the MDE app, it just says breakfast at trattoria Al forno…the email confirmation says “Bonus Voyage Breakfast”. Hope that helps.

    So excited to get a reservation for this! My kids are ecstatic…none more so than the 18 yr old!

  • Got a reservation for our trip in May! All set! Can’t wait, the menu looks delicious! I especially like the Sunday sauce. Wonder if it’ll taste as good as mine…. hmmmmmm.

  • Can ANYONE tell me if ALL breakfast reservations will be character experiences here? I booked at 7:30 this morning, and now I’m being told that if it doesn’t say “Character Experience”, I am not booked at the Bon Voyage Breakfast. I have called 4 times and been on hold for over 2 hours, only to continually get conflicting information, yes it is; not it’s not!! No one can tell me whether or not ALL breakfast reservations will have characters. PLEASE!! Help!! :o) Thanks!

    • Hi Jeanne, All breakfast reservations made for dates beginning April 2 are for the Bon Voyage Breakfast. Hope that helps! 🙂

  • Spent 15 minutes on hold only to find out that they can’t help me either. She says no one can help with reservations at this time, so don’t waste yiur money on long-distance charges like I did.

  • Will there be Disney photographers there to take the photos with the characters?

  • So frustrating. I made a reservation through the app but I am stuck on the “Review & Confirm” page ? Says it’s having trouble connecting. Now I am sitting on hold, paying long-distance charges to talk to someone. ?

    • Hi Leesa, I apologize about the frustration. The Trattoria al Forno reservation page has been experiencing technical difficulties; the appropriate teams are aware of the situation and are working to remedy the problem. Please keep checking, we hope to have reservations working shortly. Thank you for your patience.

  • Hi, got my reservation for June 8 on My Disney Experience app on iphone a hour ago.

  • I finally was able to get the booking to go through! All set for July, very excited about this breakfast!

    • Enjoy! 🙂

  • This is frustrating. Are reservations open of not. I can see availability for July but then get an error message when I try to reserve. Website states reservations available to book March 1st but also states to call to check for availability so which is it?

    • Hi Kathleen, I apologize for the frustration. Reservations are open now, if you are having difficulty booking online, please call 407-WDW-DINE and a cast member will help you book.

  • The Disney Dining page where you make a reservation says this: “Reservations for April 2, 2017 and beyond will be accepted starting March 1, 2017.” I made a reservation this morning. Will it be honored?

    • Hi Samantha! I apologize for the confusion, the ‘March 1’ date on the website is an error, as reservations are now open. The appropriate teams are working to correct the Trattoria al Forno webpage. If you were able to make a reservation this morning for breakfast April 2 and beyond, and received a confirmation number, you are all set for the Bon Voyage Breakfast character dining experience!

  • Disney Website says bookings begin March 1st. Will current reservations be kept and made into the character dining? or will they be canceled and we will need to rebook?

    • Hi Jonathan, any reservations made for breakfast for dates beginning April 2 are for character dining. They will not be cancelled, you do not need to rebook.

  • Hi! It’s not allowing reservations for August. Is this because it will not be offered? Trying to plan for a birthday.

    • Hi Spencer, I apologize for the confusion, we had a technical glitch this morning. Reservations are now open, if you are having difficulty booking online, please call 407-WDW-DINE and a cast member will assist you.

  • The webpage of the restaurant says “Reservations for April 2, 2017 and beyond will be accepted starting March 1, 2017.” But this blog post says they’re open now. Which is correct?

    • Hi David, I apologize for the confusion. Reservations are now open; appropriate teams are working to update the webpage.

  • Oh this is just so very exciting! I was able to successfully book breakfast on the 14th of August – my Flynn Ryder and Prince Eric loving daughters are going to be OVER THE MOON about this! I think I’ll keep it a surprise……

    • Have fun! 🙂

  • Will reservations that have already been made for dates after April 2nd be rolled into the character breakfast?

    • Hi Jonathan, all breakfast reservations for dates beginning April 2 will be for the Bon Voyage Breakfast character dining experience.

  • I was super excited this morning and was up at 5:50 to be ready to book a breakfast on June 7th for the breakfast. I am currently booked and super excited except now a facebook group is saying that unless the reservation is for Bon Voyage, it is not a character breakfast. is this true?

    • All reservations for dates after April 2 will be for the Bon Voyage Breakfast character dining.

  • It isn’t showing me any breakfast search option at all…for any date.

    • Hi Kimberly, I apologize for the inconvenience, breakfast reservations will be back online later today. To book now, please call 407-WDW-DINE.

  • Breakfast is not offered as an option right now, only dinner.

    • Hi Donna, I apologize for the inconvenience, breakfast reservations should be available again later today. To book now, please call 407-WDW-DINE.

  • Trying to reserve for May 14th for the Bon Voyage Breakfast. Only seeing Dinner options. Could this just be a webpage needing updating?

    • Hi Edward! You are correct, the website is currently being updated. I apologize for the inconvenience but keep checking, reservations should be back up later today. To book now, please call 407-WDW-DINE.

  • Will Dining Plan be accepted for this?

    • Yes, the Bon Voyage Breakfast will be 1 table-service credit on the Disney Dining Plan.

  • When you click the link above and make a reservation it does not say anything about this being a character experience or anything about Bon Voyage. Have I booked the correct experience? Is it possible that Disney would have a character and non-character meal at the same time in the same restaurant?

    • Hi Tiffany, the website is still being updated. All breakfast reservations beginning April 2 will be for the Bon Voyage Breakfast character dining experience.

  • Thanks for the update, I made a reservation for June, it doesn’t mention that it is a character breakfast?

    • Hi James, the Trattoria al Forno page on DisneyWorld.com is being updated. All breakfast reservations for dates beginning April 2 will be for the Bon Voyage Breakfast character dining experience.
