We went here on the fly. We hoped they had openings for lunch and they did. We did not wait long to get a table. The food was good, chicken salad, pasta, ribs were very good. Our son did not like the corn dogs. The serving sizes were too big for a lunch meal. But all in all it was good. We would recommend it The scenery is terrific. It was loud but that's ok because we went for the fun and the kids. The service was slow, too much time in between ordering and receiving dinner then time waiting for dessert.

We have been to 5 rainforest cafes abroad and always compare them to downtown Disney because you may go in feeling tired or even sad but that soon changes to a huge smile. Lovely service great food.

Ah - the Rainforest Café! Third meal at the restaurant and always good. The weather was atrocious so we dove in to the Rainforest Café at 11:30 for some shelter - we had planned to have a late lunch, but decided on brunch...

The atmosphere, food and service was great, and appreciated due to our soaking and dishevelled condition! - over the past 6 years we have visited three times and managed to have the same server each time. Brilliant service. The food was just what we wanted - well cooked at delicious, although the portions are fairly huge. The only downside at the Rainforest Café is the cocktails - they're mostly juice, and are really disappointing if you want a decent drink.

ADVICE! - if you're a family, take a table or a booth and enjoy the décor. If you're a group of adults DEFINITELY sit at the bar, strike up a conversation with the great bar tenders and enjoy some drinks and food.

The first time we tried was about 6:00 and the wait was 2 1/2 hrs. Back the following Sunday at 4:00 and there was only 5 min. wait. My hubby's birthday in coming up so we had the volcano dessert! The animals going off was fun though the toddler next to us was scared each time. It's an experience just being inside with the animals and jungle follage. It was a bit pricey--my entree and the volcano was $40, but great experience.

At there this week. Check in is a mess and staff are poorly trained. Staff sent us all over with conflicting stories of when to check in, where to go, etc. Had to wait an extra half hour b/c of them.

Food is horrible. Menu is extremely limited. The only redeeming quality was our our outstanding waiter. But over priced and horrible food to boot. Oh and you'll have to wait a long time to get it.

Skip it, nothing to see here folks. Plenty of better options. Surprising, being that Trex is owned by the same people, just a little further down the ways, and 10x better.
