At A Glance  

Less than 10 miles away from their flagship restaurant in Orlando (at Downtown Disney), the Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom services both guests of Disney's Animal Kingdom park and outside patrons as well.

The Cafe sits just outside the main entrance to the Animal Kingdom, although has two entrances. One is accessible from outside the park, whilst the second can only be reached from within the Animal Kingdom by leaving the park through a set of turnstiles that only lead into the Cafe. If you plan to return into the Animal Kingdom you'll need to have your hand stamped on exit in to the Cafe, and also will need to retain any park admission media (tickets).

The outside of the restaurant is designed to be a 40-foot waterfall, though this can only be seen from the entrance outside the Animal Kingdom park, with the inside featuring signature Rainforest items such as the 38-foot mushroom bar, Tracy Tree, Atlas man and braying, growling and roaring animatronic animals.

The entrance to the Cafe from the Animal Kingdom side features a kind of Animal Playground, with a large elephant playfully shooting a jet of water over the heads of passing guests and into a pool. There's usually five or six Macaw and associated Amazon birds in the area as well, along with a keeper to explain about the birds, and the threat posed to their survival posed by removing them from the wild (the birds by the Cafe have all been bred in captivity).

Inside the cafe has a similar layout to the Downtown Disney variant, though the shopping area seems quite a lot larger. Both feature the same merchandise ranges, focusing on Rainforest Cafe branded clothing, along with assorted toys, games and souvenirs all with a rainforest theme.
