Located just outside the Animal Kingdom park, the Rainforest Café is the park’s only full service restaurant. Surrounded by gorillas, elephants, tropical foliage, and a very large tropical fish tank, one can partake of breakfast, lunch and dinner in this wildlife habitat. The ceiling is a star-studded night sky. Rainbows bedeck the walls, and a thunderstorm occurs like clockwork every half hour or so. The restaurant is filled with other exotic rainforest sounds as well so be prepared to talk loud. The menu is inventive and large, representing many different cultures. Fresh smoothies are a menu “centerpiece”. An average meal at the Rainforest Café is between $25 - $35 per person ($$$). Priority seating is strongly suggested.

Rainforest Cafe Review

Alan and Ahnalira review dinner at the Rainforest Cafe located in Disney's Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World.

OLP Review:
At Disney World, there are two Rainforest Cafe locations to choose between; one Downtown Disney and the other at the entrance of the Animal Kingdom.  We chose the Animal Kingdom location where the Rainforest Cafe is the only full service restaurant.

One can dine here at the bar as well as in the restaurant.

To enter the restaurant area, we passed under and "through" this very cool aquarium..

to our "rainforest bedecked" table

Everything at the Rainforest Cafe is about theming...  All around is the jungle with jungle sounds and the periodic flash flood storm.

Alan chose the Chimi Cha Cha Cha...  a deep fried tortilla filled with chicken and beans.  The guacomole, he commented, was very fresh.

Ahnalira explored the Rasta Pasta...  an alfredo/pesto sauce over pasta with chicken and vegetables.

The meal was just under $25.00 with tip.  OLP gives the Rainforest Cafe two thumbs up for theming and rates the food in the "good" category.  After eating, remember to leave room for shopping

The food was excellent and the service was great. We ate lunch there and the atmosphere was really good. We dine there almost everytime we go to DW and enjoy it everytime.

When I think of the Rainforest Cafe I think of 2 things...great food and animals!  The menu at the Rainforest is awesome!  They offer something for everyone.  You can get a great appetizer, huge salad, meal or just opt for the incredible dessert!  Speaking of dessert, the chocolate volcano is so scrumptious!!!!  It's a must for the chocolate lovers. 

When I last visited, I ordered the paradise chopped salad and the coconut shrimp.  They were both great! 

I love to spend the day at Animal Kingdom and end with a great meal at the Rainforest Cafe located outside of the park.  It makes for a day full of animals and full of fun!

Rainforest Cafe on the Disney Dining Plan

My family loves to dine at the Rainforest Cafe!  Even when we travel with a Walt Disney World dining plan, we plan an out of pocket expense to experience Rainforest.  We just enjoy the food and atmosphere there so much.  I am so happy to find out that we can now use our Disney Dining Plan to dine there!  It will take one dining credit from your Disney Dining Plan.  Thank you, Disney!!

And again, fun place to visit.

We just came back around for another visit, dinner at the Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom.  As always, the ambience is great fun ... animatronic elephants, huge aquariums, the occasional thunderstorm.  The food isn't quite as exciting, as I noted in my previous review from 5 years ago!

I had the pastalaya which was good but not exceptional in any way.  Basically a jambalaya with pasta, it was a little spicey but really needed additional heat -- which I obtained in a tabasco bottle.  Ahnalira really had the star attraction, a special macaroni and cheese with Lobster (I don't think this is part of the regular menu) which was quite tasty.

Still, overall, I have to give it a 3 -- as in adequate fare but nothing exceptional that I would seek out again.  Definitely a must see at least once for the ambience.   I think kids will especially love this place.
