Check out the spectacular new volcano effects at Rainforest Cafe
The volcano is nearly complete
Downtown Disney's Rainforest Cafe remains under refurbishment as the exterior volcano is rebuilt
There did not appear to be as much choice as we first thought. The atmosphere was loud and very cramped. The staff were not used to the dining plan and did not explain all the options until you tried to order something for the desert that turned out to cost two credits as opposed to one.
We loved the shouting of the dessert Volcano, but we miss the sparklers. The food is typical "bar" food, but the appetizers are a good choice, such as spring rolls and shrimp. The burgers are good. The atmosphere is very interactive. Beware that the little ones may be scared of the thunderstorm when the animals come to life.
Ok,I know its not creme d la creme,but the atmosphere and bustle make it a great family night out(no need to whisper in this restaurant)we started with a stack of onion rings(huge)steaks and ribs(huge)volcano sweet(mega huge)wheres my dietician?so if youre looking for fun,average food,big portions,and a noisy night out with the family,you wont be disappointed.
We have been going to Rainforest Cafe's across the country (Tennessee, Texas and Florida) for about nine years. Our children love the environment, particulary the gorillas! While the environment is amazing, with the gorillas, monkeys, elephants, giant butterflies and birds, along with the rain storm every 20 minutes, the food leaves something to be desired. There is literally only one item on the menu I eat, the chicken fajitas. I've tried other foods and they're either loaded with seasoning, just plain bland or something I wouldn't be interested in. This is a wonderful experience for your children, but if you're going for the food, head over to Landry's other restaraunt at Downtown Disney, T-Rex Cafe! The food there, along with the environment is incredible! Landry's needs to take a tip from its newest restaraunt and change up the menu at the Rainforest Cafe!
The Rainforest Cafe is located in Downtown Disney's Marketplace at Walt Disney World. It is a table service location, offering a broad menu of casual food.
