    I just learned that Rainforest Cafe is outside the entrance to Animal Kingdom. If I exit AK to have lunch there, is it possible that I won't be able to get back into the park is attendance is at capacity?

    Hi Alice,

    In theory, if the Animal Kingdom were to reach capacity at lunch time, you would need to wait for a few people to leave for you to get back in. However, I highly doubt that it would be that full earlier in the day. In addition, many people tend to make Animal Kingdom a "half-day park" and leave early afternoon, so you would be able to get back in once they leave. As a side note, I've never understood why people say that. My family needs at least a day and a half to full immerse ourselves in Animal Kingdom. 

    I'd go ahead and make reservations for lunch, I believe you won't have any trouble getting back into the park at all.

    Have a wonderful vacation,
