Downtown Disney T-Rex Review

While in Orlando, Florida we were offered to visit the T-Rex restaurant in Downtown Disney.  When staying on Disney grounds it is a very convenient place to eat because you can take Disney transportation there.  Even when staying off grounds it is easily accessible by going to Downtown Disney.  When the restaurant first opened we ate there, but from what I have observed in life service always changes from the opening experience.  We were seated in the Ice Cave Room.  The room looks like a ice cave, and at different times during the show that goes on throughout the restaurant the ice turns red.  There are very life-sized animatronics of dinosaurs throughout the restaurant.  The restaurant does have a lot of noises that go on while you are there.

I got the Giganto-Saurus Burger.  Wife, brother, and his girlfriend got the Guac-A-Saurus Burger.  Our little one got the Pork-A-Saurus Panini.  From the time our order was taken our meals were out to us in @18 minutes.  Our little one got a Discovery Blast which is a drink in a light-up cup, and she got the upgrade to make it a smoothie for $2 additional.  The server, Taryn, was very polite, knowledgable, and hospitable.  When we ordered we didn’t know that fries or mushrooms cost additional.  We found this out when the check came.  At the end of dinner we had the chocolate extinction.  Manager Max checked in on us throughout the meal, as the managers do at most restaurants.

Here is a PDF copy of the menu from the Orlando location.  CLICK HERE

Gigantosaurus Burger – A true carnivore’s delight. A second 100% beef patty added to the Bronto Burger with your choice of cheese. $16.99

Guac-asaurus Burger – A 100% beef patty with guacomole, a fried onion ring, pickles, lettuce, tomato, Pepper Jack cheese, and crispy bacon $14.49

Pork-asaurus Panini – smoke pulled pork simmered in BBQ sauce, served on a toasted bun with an onion ring and cole slaw $14.99

Discovery Blast – a non-alcoholic frozen blend of fruit layers in a bone-chilling glass that’s yours to keep $4.99

The Ultimate Prehistoric Smoothie – create your ultimate smoothie, blended with nonfat yogurt and topped with whipped cream. With two treats: $5.99 With three treats: $6.99
Select your treats: Butterfinger, M&M’s, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Fresh Bananas, Strawberries, Chocolate Syrup, and Oreo cookies

Chocolate Extinction – A gigantic portion of chocolate fudge cake served with ice cream, fresh whipped cream drizzled with fudge and caramel sauces and sprinkled with Butterfinger crumbs. Enough for two or more. $14.99

Also located in the building is a Build A Dino by Build A Bear.  There is no other way to complete a dinosaur experience except by the kids enjoying making their own dinosaur the same way they build bears at Build A Bear.

The food tasted good, and the service was prompt.  We would definitelly eat there again based on this experience.

For additional savings you can become a member of the Safari Club.  There are 2 locations for T-Rex one in Orlando, and the other being Kansas City.

I would definitelly recommend this experience to anyone that has children, or likes dining with atmosphere.

We were given the opportunity to review the staff, food, and the facility.  In no way was this review effected by this opportunity.

Downtown Disney T-Rex Dining

disney-t-rex-restaurant

Ok… On Thursday night, the night we arrived in Orlando, Fl, we went to dinner at T-Rex in Downtown Disney.  We had made a reservation @ 2 months ago.

Upon walking in you walk past numerous dinosaurs enroute to your table.

We were seated, and promptly taken care of.  The waitress took our drink order, and asked about appetizers.  We ordered the Supersaurus Sampler.  While I personally think that $14.99 was a little outrageous for this, I realize that this is Disney.  For dinner my wife ordered the Woolly Mammoth Chicken, I had the Gigantosaurus Burger, my mother had a French Onion Soup, and my daughter had Shrimpkens.

The meal was delicious, and very prompt on the delivery to the table.

Side note… If you happen to be a Rainforest Cafe Club Member, then you are able to take 10% off of your entrees.

All in all the food was worth it in lines of Disney pricing.
