    We have a trip to Disney in September. I'm debating whether to dine in T-REX Cafe or Rainforest. My question is: can you go in to see the dinosaurs and animatronics in T-REX even if you don eat there? Or is this a show only for the dining customers?

    Hi, Jean!
    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    My family and I had a chance to eat at T-REX a number of years ago. We loved how the dinosaur scenes changed around us while we ate. When you walk into the restaurant, you can see some of the dinosaurs and there is a store that is open to the public. (Even if you don't have a reservation.)

    If you have a reservation, you will get to go deeper into the building and sit surrounded by dinosaurs. It's a really fun experience. But if you want a tiny taste of it, you can just drop by and see it.

    I hope that helps with your planning! Let me know if I can answer any additional questions!
