You can see Downtown Disney's newest eatery from the parking lot.
Then, coming around the corner, the entrance is MAJESTIC!
The theming includes an Adventure Mobile, because eating here is a 'prehistoric adventure'; >)
As you enter, on the left is Coral Room.. an 'underwater' bar and eatery experience.
Specialty drinks in here include:
Directly inside the entrance is - of course - an animated T-Rex
Here's a short clip of the animation: http://www.ourlaughingplace.com/aspx/movie.aspx?request=listMovies&cat=restaurant&location=TREX
To the left of the entrance is shopping... which in and of itself is no surprise. What is a treat is interactive set up: A Boneyard for digging
and a Build a Dino section
Everywhere, you'll find crystal geodes built into the wall. VERY cool!
There are four themed room for dining. We ate in the Desert, right next to the Fire Kitchen
Tables are themed to the room as well. Ours were molten lava, I think :P
The Ice Age Room has a Wooly Mammoth at one of its entrances.
Keep in mind, all of these Beasts are animatronic, and every half hour or so, they all react to a meteor shower in the ceiling. Again, VERY cool! As well the ice in the Ice Age room changes color.
The final theme is a forest.
You'll find this really fun booth/cave there.
Exploring the rooms is definitely part of the fun, but eating is the main event; >) Here are a few of the items you can find on the menu:
Tribal Fish Tacos
T-Rex Chicken Salad Sandwich
Woolley Mammoth Chicken
You can expect to spend about $25 per person. We thought all of the special effects were worth the price. We found the design to be updated and improved from the Rainforest Cafe (which was their original feat in animatronic dining). The chairs are more comfortable, the tables spaced more widely, booths were added, and the Meteor Light Show is very well done. OLP gives T-Rex a big four thumbs up Dinosaur RAWWWRRR!
