The Rainforest Cafè is a must when you are in downtown Disney. The scenery is none plus ultra. However, the food and service are average but the prices are high.

You dont go here for the food - it is not bad but a lot of money for average food. However dont be put off it is great fun, the staff are amazing and the overall experience is brilliant. okay so the prices are high but what does it cost to run a place like that? I would recommend it for a good time and make the most of it by having a walk round and lots of great photos!

We visited the Rainforest Cafe with our family on a family trip to Disney World. We loved the rainforest decor, especially the occasional Thunderstorm effect that happens every so often. They have animated animals hanging from the ceiling and hiding in the bushes. Great souvenir/gift shop as soon as you enter the restaurant. The menu has a good variety of food available at a bit above average prices(You are in Disney World!) Our only complaint was how long it took for our food order to be taken and the extremely long wait for our food to be delivered. Our server, although good, was having to work too many areas(they were clearly understaffed). It was tough because we had younger children with us who became a bit restless. Once our food was delivered(not all at one time unfortunately), it was very good! I definitely would recommend this restaurant, but hopefully they can fix their short staff problem!

It can be a little loud and dark for younger ones. Really good service and the food was very good. We enjoy the animals and rain storms, just be ready for the noise.

We've been to these before - it's way past time for them to get a makeover -- or maybe a thorough cleaning - the tables and menus feel grimy and sticky. The food is below average - nothing unique - predictable. The prices are not surprisingly HIGH -- but many other choices in Disney and nearby would have better service and better food and better - not so loud - atmosphere for the same prices. The server was adequate but looked tired, under whelmed and not caring much. The stupid gift shop is huge and dull and full of WAY overpriced junk all made in China. Don't bother going.
