When we go to Animal Kingdom we love to have lunch at the Rainforest Cafe a) because we love the Rainforest Cafe environment and food and b) because it is a great way to spend an hour cooling down in the aircon.
Rainforest is popular with our whole family – my Dad likes the pot roast, my niece likes the kids hot dog meal, my hubbie likes the Veggie burger – I have tried quite a few of the menu items, they used to do an awesome crab cake sandwich that I loved and now I usually have a stir fry or burger.
The other thing I like about Rainforest is the range of beverages – they do some lovely cocktails – both alcoholic and non plus some nice wine and beer.
You can make a reservation which is recommended if there are a few of you or you want to dine at a popular time. You can often get a seat at the bar area though if you are ravenous and just can’t wait.
The cafe itself is themed – there are regular storms with thunder, lightning and rain. The monkeys ‘ape’ around and beat their chests, the leopard growls and the elephants trumpet – all great fun. My hubby loves the fish tanks with real fish swimming around.
There is another Rainforest situated at Downtown Disney.
