    My family would like to eat at Trattoria al Forno for the first time during our visit this summer. Would you recommend breakfast or dinner? (Character Dining is not a priority for us, we are foodies!)

    Hello there, Angela! Welcome back to planDisney! Thank you so much for taking the time to reach out and allow us to help you plan your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort! 

    A vacation to Walt Disney World Resort is the perfect way to kick off the summer with your family! From theme parks to poolside adventures, there are so many amazing memories just waiting to be made for you and your family this May!

    It sounds like your well on your way with planning out all the delicious dining locations for your family to enjoy as well! Trattoria al Forno is a table service location at Disney’s BoardWalk that specializes in serving a variety of regional Italian comfort foods for both breakfast and dinner. Breakfast consists of hearty morning favorites such as buttermilk pancakes with a seasonal compote and creamy polenta and warm focaccia. Dinner is similarly tempting with classic Italian dishes such as savory chicken parmigiana and decadent lasagna al forno. My mouth is watering just thinking about all of the options available at this truly amazing restaurant! 

    As I’m sure you could tell, choosing between breakfast and dinner is no small task! Personally, I find the best way to decide which meal my family and I will enjoy is by looking at our schedule and seeing what fits the best. For example, do we already have lunch plans at a specific time that day or is there a specific meal we are looking forward to eating in the theme park we are visiting? If that doesn’t give me any clues as to which meal would be a better fit, I then think about our personal preferences. Are there any specific dishes we simply cannot miss out on and which meal can we get those at? As a rule, my own family tends to gravitate toward having a big breakfast before heading to the parks and Trattoria al Forno has a very unique selection of breakfast items that were so much to try! Ultimately, those questions assist me during my own planning process, though! 

    If you do end up deciding on one meal and would like to try the other during your stay, you can always use the Mobile Dine Walk-Up Availability feature on the My Disney Experience app on your smart phone! This feature allows Guests to check table availability at participating restaurants and add their party to the walk-up list. This would be a great option if you dine at Trattoria al Forno once and decide you just have to have it again at some point during your vacation! 

    I hope this information assists you in making your dining decisions for your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! Please let us know if we can assist you with any other questions you may have as well!
