Planning a romantic vacation to Disney World this summer? Be sure not to skip breakfast in all the excitement — ‘cause Eric and Ariel could be joining you! Coming this spring, a new character breakfast at Disney World will offer fans the chance to catch up with royal couples from the likes of The Little Mermaid and Tangled over bubbly mimosas and heaping plates of pancakes. A double brunch date with your favorite Disney characters and a big ol’ cup of coffee? Sounds like a modern-day fairytale to me.
Disney World visitors can already enjoy a meal in Cinderella's castle or chow down on a burger with Mickey Mouse, but for those park guests looking for a more grown-up experience at the Orlando, Fla. resort, the new breakfast option promises to be the most sophisticated character dining to date. For the first time ever, Rapunzel will be joined by her bae Flynn Rider and Ariel will be accompanied by Eric, so you can feel free to ask them all about how their "happily ever after" has been going thus far.
Italian eatery Trattoria al Forno, located in Disney’s BoardWalk, will be hosting the "Bon Voyage Breakfast" starting April 2. Despite being a month away, reservations are already booking up, so it's not a bad idea to make the call in advance and secure your time with the royal couples.
The Bon Voyage Breakfast will run $34 for adults and $20 for children under nine years of age. The prix fixe meal begins with a choice of fruit salad or a berry parfait, along with some clever nods to the royal guest such as braided bread and pastries in the shape of clam shells, explains Inquisitr — all of which are served in Rapunzel's defensive tool of choice: the frying pan.
Guests can then select from a list of breakfast entrees with similarly adorable names: Chat with Rapunzel while dining on the fluffy "Tower of Pancakes" or a tasty steak and eggs combo called the "Royal Breakfast." The restaurant also offers classic brunch dishes with an Italian twist, such as eggs scrambled with tomato, basil, and mozzarella or frittata studded with prosciutto and Pecorino cheese.
All non-alcoholic beverages are included; however, those in a celebratory mood can cheers with mimosas and each bellinis as well. Order an espresso drink at the end of your meal, and you'll have the caffeine kick you need to start excitedly exploring your favorite park.
The characters will be available for photographs, autographs, as well as making stops at all the tables for some dishy gossip about Ursula, or a quick lesson showing the right way to comb your hair with a fork.
