Glad we sat outside

My wife & I really like the Rain Forest Cafe. We eat there when we are at Downtown Disney. Twice we have sat outside and will request that in the future. It is so much more relaxing and much quietier. The thunderstorm and the animals making noise inside is cute, but we enjoy the food and will... read more

Ok, the food is pretty bad and the drinks worst, and it all is super overpriced, but they do have nice saltwater fish tanks... So if you like it super crowded, with a long wait to be seated, cheap looking animatronics, slow wait staff, and you find McDonalds to be a high culinary experience, then this is made just for...

I was pretty disappointed in my visit to this rain forest cafe. My husband wanted to bring my son, because the others we've been to have been great. We didn't see any of the animals, and the above was very slow and now very attentive. I am always glad for the portions being large since the prices are so high.

The wait time for this restaurant was a little lengthy as well as all the hoops you had to jump through just to be seated. Felt more like a wait for a ride at the park than a restaurant. Once inside, the atmosphere was pretty exciting for the kids but was a little loud for the adults. The wait staff... More

I went to Downtown Disney for dinner while in town on business. I already have 3 souvenir glasses from other locations so I decided to add another. The table wait was 1.5 hours but the bar was first come. I was solo so I took the bar. I ordered the chicken fried chicken & a drink. It was very tasty... More

Great location for Disneyland or California Adventure. Take the monorail or a short walk and you are in the Jungle. Nice break from the food in the parks. Great atmosphere and very good staff. It might take a minute for your table, so a reservation is recommended. Good choices on the menu for the whole family.

For a Rainforest Cafe this is a good one. Much better than the one I ate at in Ontario Mills. The place has cool architectural features, and even the servers were better. Had a cheeseburger at both locations and this one was far better. Cooked correctly, not dry at all, and with tasty fries. Keep in mind this is not... More

This was the 2nd one of these I went to and being at Downtown Disney, had much better service than the last one. Having signed up for their Landry club, priority seating was awesome and cut the wait time by an hour. Also got discount on the food for my first use since signing up. Had the Mojo Bones and...

We went to this Jungle wonderland restaurant in Downtown Disney for my daughter's 16th birthday. The wait time was insane, like 1 hour and 15 minutes too long. So I had to dock them a few points for that issue. However, the wait was well worth it once we sat down and they brought me my first (of two) Coronarita... More
