We prove that random triangulations of types I, II, and III with a simple boundary under the critical Boltzmann weight converge in the scaling limit to the Brownian disk. The proof uses a bijection due to Poulalhon and Schaeffer between type III triangulations of the p-gon and so-called blossoming forests. A variant of this bijection was also used by Addario-Berry and the first author to prove convergence of type III triangulations to the Brownian map, but new ideas are needed to handle the simple boundary. Our result is an ingredient in the program of the second and third authors on the convergence of uniform triangulations under the Cardy embedding.
