When I heard the news that there was a new Bon Voyage Character Breakfast with Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, Ariel, and Prince Eric on the BoardWalk at Disney World, I was ecstatic! Tangled is my favorite movie and you can only find Flynn Rider at special hard-ticketed events like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. So was it worth the price tag? Character meals are expensive, friends, but sometimes it’s about more than the food. I brought 3 of my kids, and I’ll tell you what we thought!
Bon Voyage Character Breakfast
Let’s start with the details. Where is this breakfast? It’s on Disney’s BoardWalk at Trattoria al Forno. Characters are only there for breakfast. The Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast is $34 for adults and $20 for children ages 3-9, or 1 Table Service Credit on the Disney Dining Plan.
Reservations are very popular for this location, so advanced dining reservations are strongly recommended. You can book 180 days in advance. I couldn’t find a reservation until I asked for help from my magical friend who can find a dining reservation anywhere. However, then I found a later time for the day I needed 2 days before. So keep trying if you can’t get one right away.
And don’t worry if you forgot a princess dress, accessories, or a Pascal, because Disney has you covered. They have a cart of merchandise for sale in the lobby area of Trattoria al Forno.
The Characters at Bon Voyage Character Breakfast
This is the main reason I booked this breakfast. Like I said, Tangled is my favorite movie, so meeting Rapunzel and Flynn Rider is really fun! Plus with the new Tangled: The Series show, it makes it really relevant. I also like that they added Prince Eric with Ariel.
The characters make their way around to each table, and they do no meet together. Also, they do not have handlers, so trying to get a family picture is tricky unless you can grab a server or a nice stranger to take your picture. They sign autographs as well as leave an autograph card at your table with all their signatures.
I’m not really sure what my face is doing, but Flynn’s Rider smolder though. And yes, my kids got their own picture with him. I’m not a monster! Just a fan.
My girls loved bringing their autograph books! My youngest was smitten with Ariel.
I love that they added Prince Eric to this breakfast, too. The characters really do make the meal.
They also do a parade around the room during the breakfast that is cute for all the kids who wants to join.
Bon Voyage Character Breakfast Menu
First, each guest starts off with an adorable frying pan of pastries.
The clamshells have fruit filling inside, and the colored muffin tasted like cake according to my children.
Then you can choose a fruit salad or berry, yogurt, and granola parfait.
For the adults, you can choose one of the following entrees.
King Triton’s Shipwreck al Forno
Calzone with Soppressata, Bacon, Sausage,Blend of Cheeses, and Sunday Gravy
Prosciutto di Parma, Piquillo Peppers, Scallions, Pecorino Romano with Roasted Potatoes
Fresh Mozzarella, Tomato & Basil Scrambled Eggs, Sunday Gravy with Roasted Potatoes and Bacon or Sausage
Two Eggs Poached Under Water
House-made Fennel sausage, Sunday Gravy, and Parmesan Cheese over Golden Polenta and Toasted Focaccia
Tower of Pancakes
Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes and Seasonal Fruit Compote with Bacon or Sausage
Oak-Grilled Steak, Cheesy Egg Torte, and Fonduta with Roasted Potatoes and Crispy Onions
Egg White Omelet with Smoked Salmon, Goat Cheese, Spinach, Mushrooms, and Tomatoes with Roasted potatoes
I ordered the Tower of Pancakes and my husband ordered the Royale Breakfast and we shared, because we wanted something salty and sweet.
The Tower of Pancakes were good, what you would expect from a pancake. It’s a very good portion and comes with bacon or sausage. I love the cute detail on the pancakes. I don’t think I touched the fruit, because I’m not a huge blueberry fan. I’ve seen it served with strawberries before though.
The steak on the Royale Breakfast was pretty good. Once again, the portion size was good and the potatoes and onion crisp were a nice addition. Neither of us, however, liked the Egg Torte. Perhaps we’re not fancy enough, but whatever cheese was on it did not smell good, and was not appetizing.
Here’s a look at the options for the under 10 crowd.
My kids chose Flounder’s Flapjacks and the Mickey Waffle.
Well except it wasn’t a Mickey Waffle. Don’t get me wrong, the Ariel and Flounder waffles are adorable, but when the menu says Mickey waffle and it’s not shaped like Mickey, you get a side-eye from a 6-year-old. Also the verdict on the sausage was that it was spicy, and my daughter regretted not getting bacon. Always choose the bacon!
Flounder’s Flapjacks made me laugh a bit.
Bless it. Those fish-shaped pancakes look like me trying to cut out a fish shape out of a pancake. I think my daughter would have appreciated round pancakes with maybe a sugar stencil on the adult pancakes. It just wasn’t a ton of food.
Is the Bon Voyage Character Breakfast Worth It?
Well the good news is I received 10% off with my Annual Pass. I cringed a bit at the $150 I dropped for 2 adults and 3 children. Am I glad I tried it? Yes, absolutely! The characters seal the deal. To be able to see rare characters at a breakfast makes the price tag easier to swallow. The food was decent. I left full, but I do miss the variety of a buffet. I think my kids eat more that way
However it is nice not to be getting up and down from the table to get food all the time and worrying about whether you’re going to miss a character coming by. My kids were happy, and we all had a great time. This is in my top 3 Disney Character Meals for sure.
