This was my first time at T-Rex I was impressed with animatronics but then the food came and it was good old normal foods but it was very good way better than I was expect this is now a must eat for me in Orlando

Reservation are a must before you go.. Walked right in one getting there, food was great, a bit pricey but it was worth the atmosphere, portions was big. . We toured around and took plenty of pictures. Will recommend

The wait is unbelievably long. If you re going to go I recommend making a reservation ahead of time. The restaurant is huge and pretty crowded. We ordered hamburgers and appetizers. The hamburgers were tasteless. Service takes forever since the poor servers have to handle so many tables at a time. The place is very loud. There is a meteor... More

We celebrated a birthday here with our family members. The reservation staff was helpful to us in securing the date and time. Once arrived, we were seated fast and did not have to wait in the long line. We enjoyed beverages, appetizers, our entrees, and then we enjoyed the birthday cake. The birthday cake was the best display we had... More

The walk-up wait is a bit long, but totally worth it, if you like a restaurant setting that "comes to life." It was tons of fun for the kids (and for mom, too)! The food was delicious, but nothing really special. However, the bartender makes some delectable drinks. If our children were just a bit younger, I am positive that... More

Food is fine but you aren't coming here for fine dining. My 3 year old was in absolute awe from the minute we walked in, from the Dino dig area to the moving Dinos to the huge aquarium. Have seen a lot of reviews about how tough it is to get a table but we went at noon on the... More

This restaurant is so much fun! It completely follows the full-immersion experience that you find throughout Disney. The decor of the restaurant is just amazing. Every detail was thought out and it really pays off! There are animatronics, lighting effects, smoke, sound... even a big aquarium! Every 15 minutes there is a "meteor shower" - very neat! We had the... More

The wait was about an hour and a half to get seated, which is normal for Downtown Disney. The restaurant is wall to wall dinosaurs and they even put on a little show every half hour or so. The place is huge and loud. Very loud. We had a problem with getting our food. It was well over an hour... More

Great atmosphere. Kids love it. Terrible wait time due to local construction. Terrible parking situation due to construction. Call for reservation. We waited 1 ½ hours before getting seated. Still love the place. Kind of on the pricy side.

We were so pleased that we booked this restaurant ahead of time as the lines that can build are incredible. This restaurant was the choice of my 8 year old son and we were not disappointed. We were seated in the meteor room which had incredible theming. Portions are huge so think before ordering! Children's menu had a lot on... More
