August 6, 1996 – Rainforest Café Opens in Walt Disney World’s Downtown Disney

Rainforest Cafe

“Traipse the jungle and tantalize your taste buds with flavorful American favorites and kid-friendly cuisine.”

On August 6, 1996, the Rainforest Café opened in Walt Disney World’s Downtown Disney area. The restaurant replaced Chef Mickey’s (not to be confused with the restaurant of the same name in the Contemporary Resort), and is themed after the rainforest, complete with waterfalls, tropical animals, and a volcano. The restaurant features themed American fare, including Rainforest Pita Quesadillas, a Blue Mountain Chicken Sandwich, and the Sparkling Volcano dessert, complete with a decorative “sparkler.” Several other Rainforest Cafes have opened in Disney parks, including Animal Kingdom, Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, and Tokyo Disneyland.
