    My family and I are split between Rainforest Cafe and T-Rex Cafe. Both menus look similar, but which is better? Also what is the best time to eat at Teppan Edo? Thanks.

    Hello Christy!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question!

    The Walt Disney World Resort offers so many great dining options that I always have a hard time deciding which restaurants to make reservations for. I always feel like trying new places, but we always go back to some favorites like Rainforest Cafe. T-Rex is also a great dining location that takes you back millions of years for a Jurassic adventure in a dinosaur-themed environment. 

    Both restaurants are amazing and offer excellent food, so I really think it all comes down to your family’s preferences. If you kids really like dinosaurs, then I would not think twice and make reservations at T-Rex. My daughter loves the rainforest feel at Rainforest Cafe, and this restaurant is usually quieter than T-Rex. I think you can still have the best of both worlds. We usually make reservations for dinner at the Rainforest Cafe located at Disney’s Animal Kingdom after enjoying a day at the park, and then choose another restaurant to dine at when we visit Disney Springs, which for you could be T-Rex.

    I am so thrilled that you are planning reservations at Teppan Edo! It is one of my husband’s favorite restaurants and we like to make dinner reservations at around 7:00 p.m. and then finish our meal just in time to find a nice spot to enjoy IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. The fillet mignon and the scallops are so delicious and fresh, and you will have so much fun there!

    Thank you for visiting us again! I hope this helps you while planning and that you continue to send your questions our way. 

    Best magical wishes,
