    Is Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom inside the park or outside the main entrance?

    Hello, Leigh!  

    The Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom Theme Park is just outside the main entrance gates.  You do not need theme park admission to dine at this location.  Keep in mind that if you are spending time inside the theme park, there is an entrance to the restaurant as you exit.  If you choose to enter Animal Kingdom from Rainforest Cafe, you will need to go through the entrance gates to reenter the park.  

    Be sure to to spend some time exploring this whimsical dining establishment.  From the giant saltwater fish tank to the occasional "thunderstorm," you are sure to be entertained while you dine.  

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and enjoy your trip!

    Magically yours in 2018,
