The Final Supper at The Rainforest Cafe
On our last day in Disneyland we had our most expensive meal at the Rainforest café which was €75 for the three of us. The Rainforest Café is situated in the Disney Village. I’ve personally never been to the one in London so had no idea what to expect. As you walk in you first enter a toy shop which makes waiting for a table a little easier for the children. Evie loves looking at cuddly toys and they were a big hit with her. As you walk into the restaurant there is a little aquarium full of tropical fish swimming overhead. Inside there was rocks, trees and hanging vines with a huge selection of animals coming out of the wall. We sat close to a huge elephant which every so often made a noise and shook his trunk.
The Rainforest Cafe in Paris is very easy to find in the Disney Village and was close to our Sequoia Lodge hotel. It is incredibly distinctive and you will find it close to the Earl of Sandwich at the far end of the village. The Cafe is at the back of a toy shop so it is a great experience for families. I love the scenes in the Cafe. It’s like sitting right in the middle of the rainforest. Every so often the lights flash a little bit and noises mimic a thunderstorm. It’s not too loud but something to consider if you have little ones with sensitive ears. It’s a really beautiful cafe to have a meal in with your family.
The food here was okay. I do feel you kind of pay more for the theme and the brand of where you are than the food. It just felt a bit dry like it had been sat under a hot plate for a long time. We had a long wait for our starter and my daughters main course – they came out together which was good as we hadn’t asked for that to happen.
Adam and I shared the chicken wings which were really tasty. These came with carrot sticks and a blue cheese dipping sauce. There were around 8 wings in the bucket. My daughter had cod goujons and fries. Adam had fajitas which come on a tower and included four wraps, a plate of sticky chicken and onions. There were also a selection of extras like salsa, sour cream and guacamole. He really enjoyed them and found them filling. I had the Louisiana burger which came with Franks Hot Sauce – my favourite hot sauce. However, the lettuce in the burger was very limp and the bread roll looked a bit flat. I ate it all and enjoyed it. It just didn’t have the wow factor I expected. Evie finished her meal with a push up ice cream which kept her happy.
The toilets are awkwardly placed as you need to leave the café, go into the shop and walk up a little side area back into the café to use the toilets. We found this frustrating but couldn’t be helped. The staff were fine, but service was not exceptional. Overall we had a nice experience in the Rainforest Café but I do feel once you’ve been to one you don’t really need to go again.
