AK Table Service

Part of a chain of 25+ restaurants sprinkled in malls around the world, Rainforest Cafe blends an immersive environment with a laundry list of a menu. Dine on steaks, pastas, salads, burgers, or one of 50+ other items, all while animatronic gorillas pound their chests, birds sing, and thunder booms from the starry nighttime sky. The food is unlikely to impress, but it’s all serviceable and portions are huge. The restaurant is extremely loud and the atmosphere may startle young children apprehensive about rides like DINOSAUR and Haunted Mansion. Because it’s located at the front of the park, plan to eat when you’re near the entrance/exit.
