This is a great fun restaurant. If you have gone to Rain Forest it's pretty much the same concept, but this one has dinosaurs, ice age animals and paleozoic creatures like jelly fish and a giant squid. The animals move and every now and then you'll get thunder and meteors. Yes, it's noisy, very noisy, but it's part of the... More

It was quite similar to the rainforest cafe and their food was good and moderately priced. They was a long wait without reservation but we were able to get seated quickly due to our Landry's membership. It is quite busy (probably because it was a peak period) and the service was okay.

Our Disney planner was only able to get us a late reservation, but she suggested that we go by earlier to see if we could be seated early which is what we did and they seated us 1 1/2 before our scheduled reservation. Yes, it is loud and it may even frighten your toddler initially, but the restaurant is very... More

Atmosphere is great. Prices are a bit much but you're paying for the setting. We went for a special occasion and had a great time but our 6yr old would have been fine(better) had we just walked through and gone somewhere less $ and faster.

My partner and I really enjoyed our dining experience. It was really busy the night we went so weopted to sit at the bar for dinner rather than wait for a table. The bar staff were friendly and the food was tasty. The cocktails were delicious and we were able to purchase the shaker and glasses. We thoroughly enjoyed the... More

We have a big family. The kids loved the dinosaurs but the food and drinks were a hit with the adults. Must order the volcano dessert, very cool looking and tasty too. It's enough to feed at least 6-8 people!

We went at lunch and got right in. The atmosphere is great for kids. We split appetizers and a desert so it was cost effective. I can't say I'd have been thrilled if I had used dining plan or spent lots of money though.
