Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast At Trattoria al Forno Review

Natalie has always loved Flynn Rider. She used to watch Tangled all the time when she was small. When the movie first came out, you could meet Flynn Rider at Walt Disney World with Rapunzel. We weren't ever able to make it to the park to meet him. By the time we got there, he was no longer there. So the only time Natalie could see him was in parades.

But then I heard about the Bon Voyage breakfast where you could meet Flynn Rider and knew we had to do it.






The Bon Voyage breakfast is at the BoardWalk Resort, and it is gorgeous. (We stayed at Coronado Springs and took a Lyft to the BoardWalk for about $8.)









If we ever win the lottery, we'd stay there. It's peaceful.







The Bon Voyage breakfast is actually in the Trattoria al Forno restaurant. There's only a breakfast option at the moment.







Here's the menu:




Good news. You CAN get Diet Coke!




You start off with pastries that everyone shares. These went quick at my table. You get more if you have a larger party. I've heard from other people that you can actually request more, but our waiter didn't mention it so I didn't want to be annoying.



My favorite was the star! And that chocolate thing. I don't know what the correct term was, but we all shared it. My son kept trying to eat every pastry on his own and I'd be like, "Uh, we're sharing them all!"

I like that they were served in a frying pan. Because, you know, Rapunzel.




Everyone also gets fruit salad. It's just fruit cut up. I was hoping that it would be a slightly more fancy fruit salad like with marshmallow or something. But it was still tasty. In another blog post I saw they actually had a piece of fruit with edible glitter on it, but I guess they aren't doing that anymore.




Then everyone orders a main course. I believe it's about $35 per person. (Less for kids 9 and under.) Plus extra if you get drinks. Lots of people seemed to be ordering the mimosas but I just stuck with my Diet Coke.

Tommy and I ordered the Tower of Pancakes:



It comes with bacon or sausage and fruit compote. I liked it, but got full pretty dang fast because the pancakes are thick.


Natalie went for the Tangled Eggs. Now, these were different eggs. They had mozzarella and tomato basil, plus gravy. Natalie would have preferred plain eggs, and they had them in a kid menu, but because she's 11 she's considered an adult at Disney and wasn't allowed to order from there. So she tried this. She liked it, but they weren't her favorite. Luckily I had some leftover pancakes for her to have and Tommy ate the rest of her breakfast. Thank goodness for teenage boys with bottomless pits for stomachs.




Of course the main point of this breakfast are the characters! Flynn Rider came out first, and he noticed Natalie was dressed like him. He was pretty excited about this. He talked about his adventures and asked if Natalie liked going on adventures too. She does! Almost too much, because she's been in the ER a number of times. He found this amusing.



He also asked if Natalie wanted to work on her smolder. She said, "Sure!"



Then Rapunzel came over, and Natalie looked super awkward. I think it's because Rapunzel has always been her favorite Disney Princess, so she always get starstruck.



But she did give Rapunzel a hug before she left because she has good memories on dressing up like Rapunzel when she was tiny:





Soon after Prince Eric stopped by and asked if he had seen his dog Max.

"We have a cat named Max," Tommy offered.



Prince Eric had nice hair. I'm sure it was a wig, but still.


Finally, Ariel came by and said she was excited to have human legs. I got Tommy to be in the photo. Before he was too busy eating. I'd be all, "Want to be in the shot?" and he'd say, "I'm eating."





So, was the breakfast worth it? For character interaction, yes. The characters didn't feel rushed. Granted, we aren't ones to keep them talking forever, but I didn't feel like they had to hurry as I have for other meals. They will also sign autographs!

Also, after all the characters appear, there is a napkin parade around the restaurant. The song I've Got A Dream played and anyone who wanted to could participate.

The food was okay, nothing special. My favorite part was the pastries honestly. I would do this breakfast again purely for the character interaction. You can book a reservation online or call 407-939-5277. Breakfast runs from 730-1205. We did ours at 1010 and they were running a bit late, so the earlier the better if you don't want to wait around.

After the breakfast, we walked to Epcot! It's about a 10 minute walk and helps burn off all the food. You pop up near the France area at the World Showcase.




So have you ever eaten at the Bon Voyage Breakfast? Would you?

  20. You really meant it when you told Eli you would build a tunnel to Disney! It sounds like a fun breakfast, and like so many things at Disney, the food isn’t the main attraction.
