Restaurant Review: T-REX at Downtown Disney

I've been looking forward to writing this review for awhile because it just so happens to be about my boys favorite restaurant!

T-Rex is located at downtown Disney and it's one of the easiest restaurants to spot because, well, there's a giant T-Rex outside. 

If you've ever been to a Rainforest Cafe, you can begin to imagine what T-Rex is like. It's super themed and every last nook and cranny is decorated.


There are several different rooms, and because we were a walk in (as opposed to an ADR) we were sat in one of the less cool (but still really neat) rooms. A huge thunderstorm breaks out restaurant wide and the dinosaurs move around and make noise. 

We are going back there in November and we've requested to sit in the ice cavern room. It was by far the coolest (literally and figuratively) room we saw. It even changes color! There's also a meteor shower that takes place in the meteor room and a HUGE moving octopus over the bar area.

Curious about the food? 

While it's not a five star affair, the food was actually pretty good (and very similar to the Rainforest Cafe). Chris and I shared the Supersaurus Sampler platter which included brushetta (which was outstanding!), quesadillas, onion rings and a spinach and pepper jack queso. It was really good and I would highly recommend sharing it!

You can view the menu thanks to AllEars.net by clicking here.


So, in true Real Mom's Disney form, here are the bullet points:

  • T-Rex accepts Table Service credits (you can view information on the dining plan here and here).
  • You can make an ADR (advanced dining reservation) on Disney's website. However, if the restaurant page on Disney's site shows that there are no ADR's available, you can call them at 407-827-TREX . This happened to me - it showed as booked so I called and got the exact time I wanted. For more info on ADR's click here.
  • T-Rex is themed to the max, with constant entertainment.
  • It is a bit pricey, so be sure to check out the link from AllEars to see the menu pricing, if you're not cashing in a table service credit.

Overall, we LOVED T-Rex and can't wait to go back during our next trip! Have you visited a T-Rex? What did you think? We'd love to hear from you!
