Enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. It was jam packed for a late lunch, food took a while but plenty for the kids to look at to keep them occupied. Slightly on the expensive side, but as you'd expect for this type of themed restaurant.

Had evening meal here during recent family holiday - party of 6 with meals ranging from very good to very poor (chicken pasta - slop). Rainforest theme entertaining but very loud and starts to prove annoying after an hour. Main issue with this restaurant was the temperature - absolutely freezing, all dinner guests were putting on coats if they had... More

We were heading to eat inside when we noticed tables with menus outside on the way in and asked if okay to eat outside, Molly the server said she would be glad to help us and wait on us. Her recommendations were wonderful. We do eat there regularly and now will be sure to ask for her to serve us.... More

Fun restaurant next to the entrance of Animal Kingdom so easy to visit even when at the park. Good choice of food options and considering its location not too expensive. Interesting decor with funky animals. Wait time was less than expected 15 minutes but we did try for a reservation early but were told it was fully booked. I think... More

We could see several open tables but we still had to wait for one. Once we finally got seated, no one came to wait on us! We had to ask an employee walking by to take our order. I've been to different Rainforest locations and this was the worst! We had the appetizer sampler and it was mediocre.

We booked to visit the Rainforest Café months before we travelled to Florida. When we arrived at the Café for our table reservation on time we still had to wait 45 minutes for our table for 2 people which I thought was a bit much considering we had a table reservation so we could see Rivers of Light after we...

We have been to this location numerous times and it is always wonderful. The check in is the only negative part. Even when you make a reservation, you have to wait in line behind everyone. We had a 5 o'clock reservation, which we were on time for. However, after waiting in the extremely long line to get to the hostess,... More

We made a reservation for 6pm and when we arrived there was one queue for checking in, which was a good 20-30 minutes wait. After we checked in we spent another 20-30 minutes waiting for our table. Once at the table we ordered the food with our drinks as we had a ride to get to but the food took... More
