    Mimi's Cafe is much better and costs less and is less then a mile from the resort so I'd rather eat there and get some good for because while the environment your at Disneyland were you can eat anytime in a place with a unique atmosphere
    Yes, Mimi's is good, and less spendy than the Rainforest.

    Tony Romas is pretty good too, and about the same distance from DL. A bit more $$, but the food there is considerably better than the Rainforest.

    Re: Pre-park meal-Rainforest Cafe or not?

    Another vote to skip the Rainforest Cafe. It was way overpriced and the food was far too rich to be enjoyable by anyone in our party (we do have one picky eater). The atmosphere in Rainforest Cafe is like no other, but you can experience the atmosphere by walking in, without dining there, and visiting the gift shop. Our meal was over $75 for two people, and we didn't have dessert. We both left more than half the food on our plates. We won't be going back. It was our first experience with a Rainforest Cafe anywhere, and our experience will definitely keep us away from the chain.

    Don't waste your money on Rainforest Cafe. You're paying for the atmosphere. The food is mediocre at best. I would say save the money and enjoy a nice meal at the Carthay Circle Restaurant instead. If you're set on eating at Downtown Disney that night, you can get a better meal at House of Blues.

    I really like the Jazz Kitchen and am hopefully going to be eating there tomorrow night. The food is good, it isn't too expensive, and it's easier to get into.
    Fully second this... Rainforest is silly slow at service, and the staff really doesn't care... food get to your table whenever... and it's usually lukewarm at best. Also it has such a "fake disney" feel, that it's annying.

    I've always gotten great food and service at Brenon's Jazz Kitchen... Recommend it highly.

    Skip it. The one here is just horrible. Not worth the time or the money. I second those who say to visit the Jazz Kitchen. They have fabulous burgers during lunch time. Dinner is a little pricey, but much better quality than you would get at Rainforest Cafe.

    My complaint wiht Rainforest Cafe is that it's a chain restaurant and there are 2 within a 3 min. drive of where I live. I only get to go to Disneyland once a year for about 4 days so I'd rather eat somewhere that you can only eat at Disneyland and do Rainforest when I'm at home.

    maybe this reason is why i kinda like it... there are none where i live, but it reminds me past trips to disneyland and vegas... and perhaps that's why i feel drawn to it.

    It's OK but like many other have said, it's not worth the money. I remember the last time I ate there I kept thinking I could have gotten a better hamburger at In and Out.
    The gift shop is fun to explore but most of the items are so-so. The plush selection could be better. Right now there's a lot of designer print and pink plush instead of realistic animals.
    There is always a sales rack filled with clothes and there's almost always a special on glassware.
