    I was wondering if you need a park ticket to eat at the Rainforest Cafe at the Animal Kingdom.....also is it the same as the one at Downtown Disney? Thanks for all your help.

    You do not need a park ticket to dine at either Disney location of the Rainforest Cafe. The main entrance to the Animal Kingdom Rainforest Cafe is actually located just outside the park. If you want to continue through the restaurant and into the park after your meal, then you will need a park admission ticket. And, yes, the decor and experience is quite similar at both restaurants.

    Enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World.
