The service was a bit disappointing but we cut our waitress some slack because she was semi-new and did not have enough experience yet.
We both ended up ordering good ol' steak and eggs and it was really good—not delicious, but good. Out of a rating of 1 to10, I'd give the entire experience a 7.

Disney now has two locations for the Rainforest Café. They
have a location in Downtown Disney and one in the Animal
Kingdom. If you have never been to one of the cafés, then
you should give them a try. This will be a big hit with the
kids, animal lovers, and environmentalists in your party.
Inside the café, you will find waterfalls, green lush plants,
a talking tree spouting environmental facts, sounds of the
rain forest, and animatronics animals. For those who are
concerned with the environment, you will be glad to know
there are neither net-caught fish here or beef from
countries that deplete the rain forest in order to feed their
animals. Also, any food leftover is given to local
farmers for their livestock.
The menu draws its influence from the Caribbean and Mexico.
Here you will find, in addition to the typical burgers and
salads, pasta meals and chicken, fish, and
veggie selections for anyone who is not a meat-eater. John
and I started off our meal with the Rainforest Pita
Quesadilla. This yummy appetizer features grilled chicken,
roasted peppers, onions, and melted cheese on pita bread. It
comes with pico de gallo and sour cream. But you can request
salsa if those aren’t your favorites.
For our main meals, John went with Pastalaya, and I chose
Bamba’s BBQ Wrap. Pastalaya is pasta meal inspired by New
Orleans gumbo. For ingredients, you will find shrimp, sautéed
chicken, bell peppers, onions, and andouille sausage with hot-
and-spicy Cajun sauce over linguini. My barbeque wrap offers
diners a choice of chicken or bean (I went with chicken)
smothered with their own Smokin’ Mojo barbeque sauce, cilantro,
onions, and four-cheese blend, all wrapped up in wrap bread. On
the side you get sweet mango sauce and coleslaw, which are all quite
tasty and not exactly killer on the waistline.
They do have a tummy-tempting dessert menu, but we were too
full to even think about it. Their dessert menu includes
cheesecake, a root bear float, key lime pie, and a sinful and
calorie-laden Sparkling Volcano.
Both restaurants serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Hours
vary by restaurant and season. They do offer a child’s
menu. The restaurants are totally nonsmoking. They do have
a gift shop on the premises. You do not have to have theme-
park admission to get into either restaurants. One is located
in Downtown Disney, and the other in the Animal Kingdom,
offering a back entrance for those who do not want to visit
the park. They accept credit cards. Advanced reservations are
suggested by calling (407/WDW-Dine up to 90 days in advance, or through their website at www.rainforestcafe.com.

The atmosphere is incredible, as is with all RAINFOREST CAFÉ’S, with it all starting as you enter the dining area. It is like jungle in there. Complete with lush foliage overhead, robotic wildlife surrounds you along the way, and there is even a thunderstorm overhead. You can also find cascading waterfalls, giant salt-water aquariums that contain amazing aquatic life forms, and a star-filled night sky that twinkles like the tropical midnight sky.
Rainforest Café has a complete menu of American fare, everything from exotic to traditional. So no matter what you’re craving, you're sure to find something to please your appetite and pocketbook. Rainforest Café is affordable, with an average lunch (with alcoholic beverages) for two adults costing around $30.00.
But before you go, you have to visit the Retail Village, where they offer an amazing collection of unique Rainforest Cafe souvenir products like clothing and apparel, home accessories, jewelry, games, and children's items.
We find that, above everything else, Rainforest Café is a place where you can eat great food in an enjoyable atmosphere.
