    Do you need park tickets to eat at Rainforest Cafe Animal Kingdom?

    Hey there, hi there Denise!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. Your magical vacation is just a few days away, how exciting!

    The theming at Rainforest Cafe is wild, and kids adore dining there. Since the restaurant is outside of the entrance to Disney's Animal Kingdom you won't need a park ticket or a theme park reservation to enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner at this whimsical restaurant with animatronic animals, tropical thunderstorms, and beautiful aquariums. 

    Did you know there is also a Rainforest Cafe in Disney Springs? Another fun choice is T-Rex Cafe, a dinosaur themed restaurant run by the same company, where guests are immersed in a Jurassic adventure. Instead of the thunderstorm that you get in Rainforest Cafe, guests find themselves in the middle of a meteor shower several times throughout their meal. My kids love eating in the color changing ice cavern. Whether you prefer to dine in a jungle or with dinosaurs, Disney Springs might be a better location, simply because after your meal you can shop, play, and explore

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Diane, Georgia

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
