My friend had told me to stop here on my Florida vacation but I didn't think I would be able to since I had reservations made for every day. However when I missed my lunch reservation due to bus miscommunication I saw Rainforest in Downtown Disney and decided to give it a try. My daughter and I waited five minutes... More

Its a cool place don't get me wrong but unless you have kids I would skip this one. Ok, the pros. Great environment, I loved the giant aquariums and the jungle like setting. Thats about it. The cons. It was way too loud and crowded. I have been to the Rainforest Cafe in Ontario and it was pleasant. This one... More

I am not a food person but I liked the concept of this restaurant and I was not disappointed when I visited. It's very well worth a try and it comes highly recommended. The food is very tasty and they even have their own beer brew which is tangy and interesting. And make sure you get the VOLCANO dessert so... More

Of all the places we ate at Disney World, this place is still the one that my 7-yr-old son talks about. We ate at the one at Animal Kingdom and the one at Downtown Disney. Reservations are definitely needed for the one at Animal Kingdom, but if you're willing to sit outside at the Downtown Disney location then you should... More

I always enjoy eating at Rainforest Cafe and this was no different. Definitely recommend buying the Landry's select member card. The family in front of us was quoted a 2 hour wait, with the card we got express seating so we only ended up waiting 10 minutes and we were a party of 5. The food was great and our... More

I have been to the Rainforest Cafe several times before. For years, I always got the tropical chicken quartet, which was amazing, and which they took off their menu for some unknown reason. I have tried several other meals since then but none matched the excellence of the tropical chicken quartet until this visit. This time I had the shrimp... More
