Character Dining at Riveria

    Holly from VA Asked

    Hi! I have reservations at Trattoria al Forno for an all girls breakfast on our upcoming trip! I know characters are not available right now but what about the menu? Is it still themed or geared towards the characters? Thanks!

    Greetings Holly, and welcome back to planDisney! I'm so happy to see you here again with another exciting adventure just around the river bend.

    Starting the day by enjoying a feast fit for royalty with your fellow princesses sounds divine! As a mom of two little ones with different interests, I try to schedule special time with each on vacation, and an all-girls meal is always on our itinerary. We like to dress for the occasion, either in coordinating outfits or ear headbands

    During the current phase of reopening, the menu at Trattoria al Forno has been updated, with some of the names of the adult entrees reflecting the restaurant's temporary lack of royal hosts. You will find several offerings that are similar to their predecessors but without a tribute to their character inspiration. For example, the Steak & Eggs entree is almost identical to the formerly named "Breakfast Royale," and the "Tower of Pancakes" alluding to Rapunzel's former living quarters is similarly plated, but simply called "Buttermilk Pancakes." Keep in mind that menus are subject to change.

    While I'm certain you will find the selections at Trattoria al Forno just as delicious as they were when the meal was attended by Rapunzel, Ariel, and their handsome princes, if you are looking for a themed dining experience with characters, consider the nearby and Disney Skyliner adjacent Breakfast a la Art at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera. This is my favorite character meal in all of Walt Disney World, and even though you will not be joined by princesses here, Mickey Mouse and his pals round out the meal in style, dressed in their best European artist styles.  

    I hope this gives you an idea of what to expect on your upcoming vacation, Holly. While not everything looks exactly the way it used to, Disney magic is plentiful and just what we all need right now. My family and I have enjoyed several Disney Resort Hotel stays over the past six months, and each visit has been a much needed joyous escape. It is so wonderful to see Guests and Cast Members working together to maintain a healthy and safe environment. I'm sure you will have a wonderful time, and if there is anything else we can help with as your visit approaches, please come see us again.

    Now go, live your dream!
