Food Guide: Rainforest Cafe

December 11th, 2011

As promised, today we will take a look at the foods at the Rainforest Café. However, first let’s go back to the previous blog post for a second. I mentioned in that post that if you want to go over to the Rainforest Café by boat, you can do so easily. With that knowledge, let’s say you just arrived at Downtown Disney by boat. Conveniently, the Rainforest Café is right by where the boat is docked. Therefore, once you get off the boat, you are literally looking at the Rainforest Café. You can’t miss it. The Rainforest Café has somewhat of a reservation system. If you are going at dinnertime or at any time       and all the tables are full, you can tell the hostess outside your first and last name. That hostess will proceed by taking down that information and give you a copy of that information and an estimated time for you to come back when a table will be ready for you. All of this information will be typed out for you on a piece of paper that you get to keep. While you’re waiting, you can either shop at the Rainforest Café gift shop or shop at the many stores at Downtown Disney. They also have a neat looking aquarium for you and your children to look at. No matter where you go though, just make sure you are around the Rainforest Café at the estimated time that is written on your receipt. Now let’s talk about the most important part of the Rainforest Café, the food. Now if you want to be prepared, you can look at a menu before hand on the Internet. Just Google “Rainforest Café” and they should have a menu on their website. Now, I am a big chicken eater. When I first started going to the Rainforest Café, I always ordered the chicken tenders. They were, of course, shaped like dinosaurs. When I go now though, I usually order and recommend the chicken fried chicken. It is obviously a chicken dish with a side of mashed potatoes and country style gravy. Another time I went there, I ordered a delicious chicken wrap. That consists of chicken, lettuce and tomato wrapped in a tortilla. They also have the wrap in a beef flavor among others. As far as ambience is concerned, the Rainforest Café has the most unique ambience of all the Walt Disney World restaurants in my opinion. All throughout the restaurant they have realistic looking robotic animals. Every twenty minutes the animals come alive by making animal sounds and moving in a life like way. Ten minutes later a life like thunderstorm occurs that you have to see to believe. A word of warning though, both of these events can be frightening to little children. Use your own discretion as far as whether you feel your children can handle it or not. Between the good food and the excellent surroundings, I give the Rainforest Café my highest recommendation. If you have been to the Rainforest Café, what is your favorite dish? If you haven’t been to the Rainforest Café, what would you like to try? Please comment below or e-mail me your thoughts. Next time on Beyond the Castle, we will take a look at the Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Until then, as always, have a magical day!
