Breakfast at the Rainforest CafeHere are some of the selections you can expect to find on the breakfast menu at the Rainforest Cafe in Down town Disney---
* Tonga Toast...Cinnamon-laced French toast served with a fresh strawberry-and-banana topping
Most of the Rainforest Cafe's breakfast meals come served with side orders---bacon, sausage, breakfast potatoes, toast, or a combination of these. If you love ALL these side dishes, try ordering the breakfast meal called Breakfast of Bandits, which consists of scrambled eggs served with all the sides.
Breakfast entrees cost around $10, with the exception of the steak dishes...which cost $14+. Each entree & side dish combo makes a hearty meal that should keep you full for hours as you trek through the Disneyland Resort's theme parks!
The Rainforest Cafe's kid's menu features some of these same dishes, but in child-sized portions. The children's meals cost around $6, and include milk or juice in a souvenir cup.

Rainforest Cafe Logo & CharactersQuestion: Would you post a photo of the Rainforest Cafe logo?
Well, I guess the Rainforest Cafe sign is what you'd like to see. The Rainforest Cafe logo is on each location's sign. It's also on the menu at every Rainforest restaurant location, as well.
The Rainforest Cafe logo is a collage of the "Wild Bunch" characters...the 8 jungle animals who, collectively, are the Rainforest Cafe's mascots. Knowing who these 8 critters are will help you understand the names of the Rainforest Cafe's menu items. You'll spot the Rainforest Cafe mascots on various items in the Rainforest Cafe's gift shop, such as T-shirts, hats and mugs.
1.) Cha Cha, the red-eyed tree frog. This loveable-looking fellow seems to be very popular with younger guests! His image is seen prominently at the Rainforest restaurant, in the gift shop, and on the company's website.
2.) Iggy, the iguana. (Hey...I once had an iguana named Iggy, myself!)
3.) Maya, the jaguar
4.) Ozzie, the orangutan
5.) Rio, the Scarlet Macaw
6.) Bamba, the gorilla
7.) Tuki, the baby elephant
8.) Nile, the crocodile.

Rainforest Cafe Gift ShopQuestion: What items does the Rainforest Cafe sell in its gift shop?
Just like the stores in your local shopping center, the merchandise at the Rainforest Cafe is always rotating so that shoppers continually have a fresh selection of things to buy. The merchandise falls into several general categories---clothing, toys, trinkets and educational products.
You can find Rainforest Cafe clothing for every member of the family---men, women, boys, girls. You'll find an abundance of T-shirts and hats. During the fall and winter, you'll find warmer items like sweatshirts.
Toys tend to feature animal-related playthings. You'll find a plethora of small stuffed animals, plus wooden animals and rubber animals. Educational items for both kids and adults are available, as well. You'll find books about animals and ecology, for example.
As for the trinkets, expect to find "gift shop standards" such as mugs, magnets and keychains.
I just bought children's T-Shirts this week at a Department Store...where the regular price of the shirts was $16 each, and the sale was 50% off. Thus, you can see that the price of the shirts at the Rainforest Cafe compare to what you might expect to pay in your local department store.

Rainforest Cafe FAQs and Photos: Is it worth it?Question: A meal at the Rainforest Cafe can get pretty expensive. Is the experience worth the price?
It's true that your bill can really add up at the Rainforest Cafe. For a family of 4, your bill can easily come to $60. That would be if you and your partner ordered $15 entrees, the kids ordered $7 meals, you ordered soft drinks, and either a dessert or an appetizer. By the time you'd add taxes and a tip, you'd be lucky to come out of the restaurant for $60-$70. No wonder some visitors wonder, "Is the Rainforest Cafe worth the price?"
On the other hand, the Rainforest Cafe's prices are totally in-line with many other popular chain restaurants. You can easily spend $60 on a meal for a family of four without leaving your own home town.
So, my advice is the following---
If you like to dine out regularly, yes, the Rainforest Cafe is just as "worth it" as any other popular chain restaurant.
If you want to provide a special experience for your kids---because the restaurant really is SO CUTE---then, yes, it's "worth it."
But, on the other hand, if you really just want to satisfy your hunger...maybe you'd be happier dining at the Anaheim McDonalds or another fast food restaurant. At McDonald's---where you could feed that same family of 4 for $20 easily---you'd save $40, which you could use to enjoy some additional sight-seeing during your family vacation to Los Angeles.
Photo note: Have you ever wondered what's inside the top of the Rain forest Cafe's "Mayan Temple?" In the picture of the Rainforest Cafe's "Mayan temple" style top to your right, you can see your answer: it's vegetation! The interior of the temple's "steeple" is open to view from below. As guests climb the stairs to the second floor of the restaurant, they can see clear to the top---and this is their view!
