Rainforest Cafe at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

If you are in the mood for an adventure, stop by The Rainforest Café at the entrance gates of Disney's Animal Kingdom for shopping, breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Dine in the middle of a lush rainforest, surrounded by waterfalls, animatronic animals and massive aquariums filled with exotic fish.

Now and then, there is a "thunderstorm" and the animals will spring to life, making the Rainforest Café a fun way to start or end a day at Animal Kingdom.

Warning: Part of the ambiance of the restaurant is that it is loud!

So, if your party includes children who are easily startled or if you are already tired and nursing a headache after a day in the park, the roaring animals and booming thunder might be a bit too much.

Massive Menu

Rainforest Café has a massive menu, making it perfect for large parties that have to accommodate many different tastes or small parties who simply enjoy having options.

With dozens of appetizers, soups, salads, and entrees including quesadillas, burgers, steaks, ribs, seafood, and pastas, everyone is sure to find something to hit the spot.

The restaurant also has a large children's menu for ages 10 and under with everything from chicken nuggets to mini-burgers to pizza to mac 'n' cheese.

Portions are large and so it is hard to save room for dessert, but, if you can manage it, a Sparkling Volcano for your table will be worth your while.

A rich chocolate cake served warm with vanilla ice cream, stacked high and topped with lit sparklers makes for a delicious and fabulous end to your meal.

Fun For Kids

Many Disney aficionados are hesitant to eat at the Rainforest Café as, for many, it does not feel like part of the Disney experience (the reasoning being "When you're at Disney, why eat at a restaurant you can find all over the country?"), but if you are looking for a place that is fun for the kids or you have never been to one before, the Rainforest Café is a great choice.

Tip: There are two Rainforest Café locations on Walt Disney World property and, if you are dying to go, the location at Animal Kingdom might be a better choice than one at Downtown Disney.

First, because the restaurant's theme fits so well with the experience of Animal Kingdom and, second, because the Downtown Disney location can often have very long lines and wait times.

Also, only the Rainforest Café at Disney's Animal Kingdom serves breakfast.

The Downtown Disney location does not.

The breakfast menu includes French toast, omelets, waffles and more.
