Dining at Trattoria al Forno

Trattoria al Forno is a wonderful restaurant located at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort that offers casual Italian Dining and even has a fun character dining experience for breakfast! Trattoria al Forno only offers the Character Dining during breakfast, but dinner has a great selection that offers classic preparations of some of your favorite Italian cuisine. 
Trattoria al Forno is located at a resort so you don’t need to have a park ticket to be able to enjoy this dining experience. Another plus is transportation. Because of the location, this restaurant is within walking distance of Epcot and Hollywood Studios. It is located closer to the front entrance of Hollywood Studios so if you are at your resort, the easiest way to get to this restaurant is to take Disney transportation to Hollywood Studios and then walk all the way to the Boardwalk, take the Skyliner to Epcot’s International Gateway and walk the short distance to the Boardwalk, or take the ferry boat to the Boardwalk.

Meet Me Monday: John Welch

We are very excited to welcome a new member to the On The Road Travel Team! Meet John Welch!

John lives just North of the big apple in Valley Cottage, NY with his wife, Joanna and two boys Landon (11) and John (6). Besides his family there are two things in this world that John is most passionate about...The New York Mets and Disney! While one has brought him more than a fair share of pain and heartbreak, the other has provided countless cherished memories and unforgettable experiences. John’s first Disney visit was at 6 months old. He doesn’t remember much, but was told he slept almost the entire car ride down and was very well behaved the whole time! John grew up the same way a lot of Disney kids did during the late 80s and early 90s...wearing his Goofy ears while watching every Disney Sing-Along Song VHS tape he could get his hands on. Plus, numerous episodes of DucksTales, Chip n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers, TaleSpin and Adventures of the Gummi Bears. Some of John’s favorite family memo…
