As previously noted- service is slow but worth the wait. Reasonably priced for large portions. Great atmosphere and entertaining surroundings. This was our last meal before the Airport. Give it a try you will enjoy.

We visited Rain Forest Café twice at Disney´s Animal Kingdom. The Food was excellent on both occasions but the theming and ambiance is what makes this restaurant one of our favourites. The only criticism is the waiting in line with a reservation, even having checked...More

The same fun themed rainforest restaurant, amazing atmosphere food is ok but wildly overpriced(pun intended) and our server was extremely slow and we would never know if or when he was coming back. The wait is normally long so try to get a reservation planned...More

I would call and make a reservation as soon as they accept them. You can usually get accommodations in the bar area, but it's not the experience that you'll have inside the restaurant. Enjoy some ribs for me! Have fun!
We have booked the rainforest cafe for my daughters birthday. Can I make any special requests in the restaurant to make this more special? Also if I can do this before I go does anyone have the email address for them I can't find it anywhere. Thank you in advance.

What is the difference between rainforest cafe at animal kingdom and the other one? Should we choose one over the other if we aren't going to animal kingdom park?

Honestly I'm not sure. I was only at the one outside the animal kingdom. May be worth a phone call to see the difference.
