T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Rainforest Café – Yay Or Nay?

In preparation for our Disney World trip (coming up in a mere 58 days!!!), I have been doing a little “light” reading – The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2018 – and when I say light I really mean anything but – it’s a thick book full of mostly text, 864 pages jam packed full of anything and everything you need to know before heading to WDW (and some things you didn’t know you needed to know, too!)

Knowledge wise – a lot of what’s in the book is stuff I already know, but it’s great to brush up on the things that are new since the last time I went (almost 5 years ago eek!). One thing I came across in my reading that I am hoping to check out in person for the first time is the Rainforest Café

Ok – I know – it’s not exactly a “Disney original” restaurant, and the food is probably nothing special, etc etc – believe me, I have heard it all (mostly from my husband who has thus far refused to go, since there are so many more Disney unique places to dine), BUT – bottom line is, I think our son would LOVE IT:

Even the entrance is fun – all the trees and you can see the Elephant check in desk from outside

The bar is my favorite – I see many photo ops in my future involving these stools

A bar with animal seats, giant trees, animals everywhere – what’s not to love? Oh – and the kid’s menu items go along with the theme too – “Jusassic chicken tidbits”, “Gorilla grilled cheese delight”, “Lava Mud” dessert, and the list goes on

Ok so – maybe it’s a bit tacky, and unoriginal (since it is a chain restaurant), but – who cares? It looks fun, and I figure – we will go by it as we leave Animal Kingdom around lunch time, and if there’s not much of a wait, why not give it a go? It will be fun for the kid, and hey, they serve alcohol, so it will be fun for us adults too (kidding!)

What about you – have you tried either of the Disney World Rainforest Café locations? What did you think?

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Hungry In Animal Kingdom? Feast On This!

I talk a lot about Disney Food – with good reason! They work hard to create culinary experiences that are unique and delicious – and they certainly have come a long way from the trips of my childhood, where it was burgers and chicken fingers and not much else

Oh, plus, one of the great things about being an adult at Walt Disney World is that you get to decide where you want to eat (instead of your parents calling the shots!) – and there’s a lot to choose from! No matter what kind of food you prefer, chances are good Disney has it!

I will admit – I wasn’t a huge Animal Kingdom fan when I was a kid – but I have recently grown to appreciate it a lot more, probably largely in part due to its amazing dining options!

 

Check out these mouth watering options next time you’re at Animal Kingdom:

FlameTree Sandwiches

Like these sandwiches at Flame Tree Barbeque – piled high with pulled pork or smoked turkey

YakYeti Salad

Or this Mandarin Chicken Salad at Yak And Yeti – doesn’t that look super fresh?

Kusafiri Brownie Paw

And for someone sweet, head over to the Kusafiri Coffee Shop and Bakery to snag one of these amazing giant Brownie Paws

pizzafari

Head over to Pizzafari for – yep, you guessed it, pizza! As well as salads, yummy breadsticks and they serve beer and wine here too (yum!)

 

Oh – and these are just the counter service/snack options for those on the go – there are plenty more eats available at AK, including some great table service restaurants – check out all the options here

One thing’s for sure – you’ll never go hungry while touring Animal Kingdom!

TGIF!
