Downtown Disney is home to multiple restaurants and one that is certain to be a hit with kids is Rainforest Café. This chain restaurant can be found in select cities across the United States and it’s make believe animals, jungle sounds, and tropical theme are popular with the youngsters and even some parents who find the setup cute and amusing....

There are so many great things about the Rainforest Cafe! The decor, ambiance, cute store, beautiful aquarium, animal theme through-out, extensive menu, etc. It's a super fun place for anyone that loves the animal/jungle theme for sure! BUT THIS REVIEW IS FOCUSING ON THE AMAZING PERSONALIZED CARING OF THE STAFF AND CHEF REGARDING CUSTOMER'S INDIVIDUALIZED FOOD NEEDS AND CAUTIONS. I... More

This Rainforest Cafe is handy if you're staying at one of the Disneyland resort hotels on site as it's right in Downtown Disney. The food is your typical, wide-ranging fare so there should be something for everybody. The ambiance is great if you have little kids because there's a lot to keep them distracted for a proper sit down meal.... More

Okay, so they have a "thunderstorm" every 25 minutes, but all it is is some rumbling sound and flashing lights. Even the kids thought it was stupid. The jungle decor is all fake - not a live plant in the bunch - but, hey, this is Disneyland. The food is fairly good. Just a little over-priced because of the theme... More

This restaurant is an attraction in itself. You go in and immediately enter a rainforest, filled with a different animals. You also are treated to a thunderstorm every half an hour. The staff were very friendly. My daughter can't eat gluten, and the chef came out to ensure that she got a delicious meal she could eat. And, they have... More

After reading some reviews, I was uncertain about going,.... But it was wonderful,... Huge fish tanks made it more tranquil, the salmon on cedar plank was melt in your mouth perfect,... The head chef came out to talk to me about gluten issues to ensure I had a meal I could eat. Very respectful. Kind staff, even those not directly... More

Yeah, yeah the theme is cool, but the food is average and the prices are outrageous. Its fun to eat here once every few years. If it was more affordable we might eat at Rainforest more often.

We've been to a different Rainforest Cafe and it was good. NOT SO MUCH with this place. Aside from the novelty of the decor, there really isn't any reason to go there. The food was, well.. pretty damn bad. The service was okay and friendly, but it was such a zoo (no pun intended) in there, it was almost impossible... More
