We stopped here for lunch on our last day in Disney. We had 2 toddlers with us so we thought it would be a fun experience for them. Food was ok - waitress brought out the wrong order for me and I didn't say anything, but wished that I did. The chicken salad sandwich (I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich)... More

We decided to treat our granddaughter to the experience. We arrived at 12:30PM for our reservation and we were seated at once as it was not busy. Our server arrived quite quickly and we ordered drinks. 15 minutes the drinks showed up and we ordered our meals. 45 minutes later we still had not been served and 10 minutes prior... More

Love the restaurant. The food was good as was the service. The atmosphere was amazing. It was a wonderful place to have dinner on our trip to Disney. It was very very busy, but our waiter was attentive and our food was prepared well and it was very tasty. We enjoyed walking around to see all the special effects and... More

Came to eat here for dinner on the disney dining plan. I adored the decor and the food, but my complaint was that we were seated right by the automatic doors and it was freezing! It had been warm in the day and we were wearing dresses and the door constantly opened and not only made us cold, but the... More

Food dishes are good and delicious. However, this can be a scary place for young children. Our 2 year old boy was afraid of those moving "gorillas" around our table. Every a few minutes, "gorillas" came to life and made loud sound. That scared our child so much that he couldn't eat dinner. Another baby nearby was scared by loud... More

Definately a restaurant built to suck in parents to spend a lot of money. Line up to get in very confusing- Lines named for animals, unclear where to go or who got prioritized. We got a table next to a service corrider- nothing special to see from that table unfortunately. We were told there was no kids menu only kids... More

We had dinner here on a Monday night about 2 weeks ago. I did not have a reservation ahead of time. We asked the hostess the wait time and she said about 40 min. They gave us a pager and we were off to shop at Disney Springs. Received page when table was ready. It was very busy and very... More

My wife and I had come to this place as it was a sit down place instead of quick service type food. We had gotten there just before they stopped serving breakfast and we were given a great service from our waitress. The portion size of the food was a big amount to where it was filing. We enjoyed our... More

Had lunch with our family of 6 during Thanksgiving week. We only had a 15 minute wait for our table. Our grandson's eyes lit up as we were escorted to our table. We all chose something different on the menu and everyone enjoyed there selection. We will definitely dine there again whenever in the area.
