Rainforest Cafe, one of my favorite places to dine in Disney! I seriously cannot get over how amazing this restaurant was. My number one recommendation is MAKE RESERVATIONS! According to our waiter, this place has about 600-650 reservations on a daily basis. Walk ins usually wait up to 45 minutes! We had reservations, but we got there half an hour early and they sat us very quickly. I was super happy!
The theme of the restaurant is like no other I have ever seen (with the exception of T Rex, in Disney Springs). They’ve got hidden animals coming out of the walls and the ceiling. Every 30 minutes, there’s a meteor show where the lights go crazy and you can see shooting stars on the ceiling of the restaurant. Some of the animal move to, they have moving butterflies, dragonflies and of course the fish tanks. The fish tanks are huge and there are so many of them! I could spend a good 2 hours just appreciating the detail that was put into this place. The bathrooms were spotless and the service was ok. They were busy so I understood. Tommy was our server and he was really informative. He brought the chef over to meet my mom since she had a nut allergy.
I thought that was really cool, we felt incredibly special and reassured after meeting the chef and it made the experience that much more unique.
We ordered an appetizer, drinks and entrees. All the food was to die for! The appetizer was huge and fed my family of 4 with no problem. The alcoholic drinks we ordered were the Moscow Mule & the Coronita Margarita; SO WORTH IT! We all ordered steak & shrimp, all in different forms. (medium well, well done, sauteed, fried, buttered) and I could almost feel my tummy thanking me for all the deliciousness! The steak was impeccable, the coconut shrimp was not was I expected, it was EVEN BETTER!
All in all, I would give this restaurant 10 stars if I could. As long as you make reservations, your experience in this place will be as magical as mine! It is family friendly, and this wouldn't be my first option for a romantic date, but if you want to have a meal you can't forget, you need to come to Rainforest Cafe.
