Today, we have some exciting new details about the Character Breakfast coming to Topolino’s Terrace, because reservations for this upcoming experience are now open on the Disney World website!
Topolino’s Terrace — Flavors of the Riviera will open along with Disney’s Riviera Resort on December 16, 2019. Topolino’s Terrace will bring a character breakfast in the morning and dinner on the rooftop in the evenings to this new Disney Vacation Club Resort!
Today we have new information on the character breakfast (you can read more about WHO you’ll meet by clicking here!), and we’ll talk more about what dinner at Topolino’s Terrace has in store. But for right now, we primarily want to let you know that Advance Dining Reservations are now open for each meal!
Guests starting the day at Topolino’s Terrace — Flavors of the Riviera will enjoy breakfast on the lovely indoor rooftop terrace! [Read more…]
Rapunzel, Ariel, Flynn Rider, and Prince Eric would like to wish you the “Best! Day! EVER!!!”
They’re all part of a new character breakfast at Trattoria al Forno, located on Disney World’s Boardwalk!
Guests can now start the day with favorite Disney couples such as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider from Tangled, and Ariel and Price Eric from The Little Mermaid, because the brand new Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast has officially made its debut at Trattoria al Forno (which continues to serve classic Italian fare featuring regional specialties for dinner).
So grab your autograph books — and be sure to have your camera ready! — because some very special friends are waiting to meet you…
… at the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast! [Read more…]
Hear Ye, Hear Ye!
Ladies and Gentlemen, ’tis nearly time to say “Good morning!” to Rapunzel, Flynn Rider (a/k/a Eugene Fitzherbert, a/k/a my boyfriend ;-D ), Ariel, and Prince Eric at the brand new Bon Voyage Breakfast Coming to the BoardWalk’s Trattoria al Forno!
April 2nd is the day this new Character Meal experience will make its debut.
As of this writing, the Disney World website has not yet been updated with full information regarding the meal. However, a call to Disney World Dining at (407) WDW-DINE confirmed that April 2nd is the opening date, and Advance Dining Reservations are currently open.
Character meals — where you go to a restaurant and are entertained by Disney characters visiting your table and signing autographs — are pretty much a Disney rite of passage for any disney fan.
So we’re super jazzed about the news that a new character breakfast is coming this spring to Trattoria al Forno on Disney World’s BoardWalk!
This new character breakfast is a “bon voyage” celebration with Disney royal couples from films including Tangled and The Little Mermaid. That’s right…it looks like Rapunzel and Flynn Rider are finally getting a character breakfast!!
Are you ready to start your day with Chip & Dale (along with a few more Disney pals) at Epcot’s Garden Grill?!
Garden Grill Restaurant
That’s right! Garden Grill, Disney World’s only rotating restaurant, has been serving dinner only for a while now. But on November 8th, TWO new meals joined the lineup: Garden Grill now serves up breakfast AND lunch, in addition to dinner! (This, by the way, brings the total of Character Breakfasts in Epcot to two, with the Norway Pavilion’s Akershus Royal Banquet Hall offering the other option with Princess Storybook Dining. Characters are now at both restaurants for every meal.)
The menu for the new lunch addition nearly duplicates that of Chip ’N’ Dale’s Harvest Feast for dinner. But breakfast is all-new, operating each day from 8:00 to 10:30 am.
We can’t wait to dig in! And we’ve got a few friends who would like to say “Good Morning” to you, too…
But let’s take a look around first. And, as always with the Garden Grill, I do mean AROUND… [Read more…]
Hear Ye, Hear Ye! Announcing the arrival of young royal Sofia the First to Hollywood and Vine at Hollywood Studios… and joining Her Highness is fellow Disney Junior star, Doc McStuffins!
That’s right! Sofia the First and Doc McStuffins have joined their pals Jake from “Jake and the Neverland Pirates” and (AJ’s favorite 😀 ) Handy Manny for the Disney Junior Play ‘n Dine character meal.
Not only do the characters mix and mingle, but Play n’ Dine also features “musical moments” where all the kids are invited to sing and dance along (while Mom and Dad can keep on eating)!
Sofia and Doc McStuffins bring a few new [Read more…]
Join us in welcoming guest author Beth Osborn with a tour of Eats at Disney’s Aulani Resort and Spa in Oahu. We’ve also got some great tips about eating at non-Disney spots around the resort! Brace yourselves — there’s Dole Whip, Shave Ice, Plate Lunch, and more — ahead! Don’t forget to check out Aulani restaurant info and menus here.
Arriving to Aulani on October 15, my husband Kev and I selected familiar WDW items — refillable mugs! We purchased purple and blue refillable mugs, which have an Aulani design that matches the beige wallpaper in the halls of the hotel. Red and green options were also available.
Even though the mugs are more expensive at Aulani, we felt we got our money’s worth at $18.99 each over the week we were there.
‘Ama ‘Ama Restaurant at Aulani
We had dinner at Ama Ama — Kev’s salt crusted fish was like nothing we’d ever seen before, with a completely removable crust. He said it was very moist.
I had the French Maui onion soup and a tomato and cheese salad (two appetizers instead of an entree). Both were excellent.
Makahiki Restaurant and Rip Swirl at Aulani
We had a character breakfast at Makahiki with Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy. I wasn’t as excited about the buffet as some at Disney World, but I did enjoy the [Read more…]
Jambo! I just love when a new character meal is added to our Disney World dining options! Tusker House Restaurant in the Animal Kingdom’s Harambe area will begin offering character lunches on December 4th!
Donald and Daisy Duck are taking on extra hours as Donald’s Safari Breakfast will still be offered daily!
Donald’s Dining Safari Lunch will be hosted by Donald and Daisy Duck while guests sample delicious all-you-can-eat spit-roasted meats, unique salads, vegetarian options, hearty stews and [Read more…]
The Plaza Inn in Disneyland can be found on the corner of Main Street and Tomorrowland, but there’s nothing futuristic about it! The Victorian setting features a fun buffet breakfast in the morning (with characters!), and some fantastic counter-service cafeteria-style food in the afternoon and evening (they say the fried chicken is to die for).
The Plaza Inn Breakfast with Minnie and Friends is the only character meal inside Disneyland Park, so it’s a great one to start with if you’re planning to do the day in Disneyland and you’d like to get a hearty breakfast.
On our way inside the restaurant, you’ll pass some cute outdoor seating. It’s primarily used during the lunch and dinner meals, though; most breakfast guests will sit in the opulent indoor dining room with its [Read more…]
