It is always exciting when a new character dining opportunity pops up in Walt Disney World. Especially when you can now meet  Disney characters including Rapunzel,Flynn Rider, Ariel and Prince Eric.  It is called the Bon Voyage Breakfast. Located on Disney’s Boardwalk resort area. I also think that Rapunzel never gets enough praise. Tangled was a great movie so it is nice to see some of the characters out and about to meet and greet.
