There are a lot of new experiences coming soon to Walt Disney World, but a certain character dining is really getting people excited. The "Royal Couples" character breakfast in Trattoria al Forno at Disney's Boardwalk was announced earlier this month, but there was no start date given. As of Thursday morning, Disney has not only revealed a start date, but they have unveiled more about the menu and allowed for reservations to be made.
In early February, Disney announced that there would be a new character dining breakfast coming to Disney's Boardwalk this spring. There were not a lot of details given by the Disney Parks Blog, but they did say it would allow guests to dine with "royal couples."
The only other info given was that guest would be able to dine while meeting characters from stories such as Tangled or The Little Mermaid.
Fans have waited rather impatiently for more information on this new character breakfast, and Disney has finally delivered. On Thursday morning, they released the official name for the experience, which will be called the "Bon Voyage Breakfast," and much more as well.
Disney has stated that reservations are now open to book for dates beginning April 2, 2017. They advise guests to call 407-WDW-DINE or to head to the official page for the restaurant at Disney's Boardwalk to reserve a date and time.
As is expected, the website is already bringing about some problems with showing availability. It might be in your best interest to call and save yourself a bit of time and aggravation as the site isn't even showing anything at all when searching.
UPDATE at 5:15 p.m. ET - There has been some confusion for this new dining experience as to whether or not all breakfast reservations after April 2, 2017, will be character experiences. Others have wondered if they needed to book the "Bon Voyage Breakfast" specifically and not just make a regular breakfast reservation, but the author of the Disney Parks Blog article cleared things up.
