Trattoria al Forno Dinner Review


Trattoria al Forno is an Italian restaurant on Disney's BoardWalk serving breakfast and dinner with an Italian flare.  For this meal, I chose to have dinner at this BoardWalk eatery. While it's of course easy for guests staying at Disney's BoardWalk Inn and Villas to dine here, it is also easily accessible via Epcot's International Gateway or Disney's Skyliner if you are looking for a change of pace one evening.


While the restaurant is beautiful inside, it was a perfect Florida evening so I chose to dine outside on the BoardWalk and take in the evening, atmosphere, and the views. My server was friendly and approachable and helped guide me through my meal choices.  I chose to start my meal with a nice glass of wine and soon after bread service was brought out.  


I then went with the seasonal salad which was quite sizable, fresh and delicious. Other appetizer choices include Italian favorites like calamari, minestrone soup and caprese salad. 


For my main course, I went with a classic, Polpette (meatballs) served with Sunday gravy and some delightful pasta underneath. Meatballs are a favorite of mine and these did not disappoint, however there are a wide variety of options to choose from if they aren't your thing, ranging from steak Florentine to shrimp pappardelle to lasagna and many choices in between. 


I wrapped up my meal with some decadent chocolate dessert which was truly the cherry on top of a wonderful meal. 


If you are in Epcot or the Epcot Resorts area but can't get a reservation here, you can also find great Italian food at the Italy Pavilion which serves lunch and dinner at several locations (Tutto Gusto is my favorite!) in Epcot or next door at the Swan at Il Mulino New York Trattoria which serves dinner.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The d├ęcor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
