“Nice place to eat in the Animal Kingdom”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

I find the food selections minimal in the Animal Kingdom. The Rain Forest Cafe was convenient and offered sit down service with no reservation. The entrance in Animal Kingdom was convenient to eat and then come right back in the Animal Kingdom without going through the entrance again. Food was consistent with all other Rain Forest Cafes I have visited.

“Great for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I stopped in for a meal with my family. The food was good and our server was ok. The surroundings are interesting with apes and fish tanks all over. They have storms periodically where the animals react. I prefer T REX but this was fun too.

“If you like birds and noise....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Wow! Having never been to one of these, we were awed by the plethora of sounds and sights! Very impressive was the thunder and lightning show! Now the food, over priced? Sure, but what isn't down there? Food was tasty and plentiful. Kids ate all they wanted and parents and grandparents did, too. Go back? Not me, but then ... if G-kids want me to, I would!

“Pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

The food here is fine but it is a bit expensive. If just going for the food and not Animal Kingdom , eat at the Rain Forest in Downtown Disney and avoid the parking fee. Nice place to take kids to eat.

“Cha-Cha rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We love this restuarant. My family goes to Disney World every fall and one of our highlights is always the RainForest Cafe at Animal Kingdom. The food is great and there are so many choices on the menu that you are sure to please everyone. My daughters love the animals and the storms and animal sounds. Even though they have been to this restuarant 7+ times they always want to take pictures with all of the animals. Since my oldest daughter's nickname is Cha-cha she especially loves the tree frog! Don't eat so much that you are too full for the Volcano cake - it is awesome and everyone sings to you when it somes out. Great!
