Quick Service or Table Service?

Rainforest Cafe is a Table Service dining location. This means the restaurant offers a more relaxed dining environment where Guests are seated indoors. The restaurant also accepts dining reservations, and even though you can sometimes get in without a reservation, we recommend one.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
