  • Eat with Dinosuars - Why not us too.

    I got this off a Disney News Site and haven't seen anything here, so I am wondering why Florida gets this and we don't? Or will we in the Downtown Disney West part of the redo. If we have a Rainforest Cafe, I wonder if they will do one here as well. With all the thoughts and discussions about changes to DCA this might have been missed:


    Two life-size dinosaurs will grace the outside and dozens more robotic dinosaurs will decorate the interior of the T-Rex restaurant and store under construction at Downtown Disney. The restaurant, slated to open next fall in Downtown Disney's Marketplace section, will be the second in a new chain designed by Steven Schussler, who created Rainforest Cafe, and developed in partnership with Landry's Restaurants. The 30,000-square-foot project, much larger than the Kansas City, Kan., prototype, will include a cocktail bar, a 3,500-square-foot retail shop and enough educational and entertaining decor to qualify as an attraction, Schussler said.
    "We've got over 35 different dinosaurs on the inside, a quarter of a million dollars in fossils embedded in the men's room and ladies' room, with educational comments so you can learn about them. Most of that stuff in there is literally 45 [million to] 80 million years old," Schussler said.

      I want dinosaurs at Downtown Disney (or anywhere in the Resort area) too. But for purely selfish reasons.

        Because if there is no such clone here, WDW's west coast visitors will be more interested in eating there. Simple as that. I think it's a very cool idea, but I'd rather it stays at WDW while we get a different but similarly cool concept.

            Wow, sounds pretty cool. However, I think the reason WDW is getting this place is because of the Dinosaur! attraction they have. That's just a guess on my part.

            Totally off the Disney subject, but I wish that Knott's Berry Farm would create a fully themed Peanuts restaurant. That would be cool!

                Thanks Opus1Guy for the link to their site. That has a lot of fun stuff, I even played most fo the games. They are new with only one place so far, the second being in WDW. Again, I have to state that not everybody out here is rich enough to run off to Florida every year. I have only been three time and it was 10 years between each visit. I doubt if living on Retirement Social Security now I will ever be able to do it again. So I really want one here. They have a Rainforest at both places and ours is always packed, and I understand it's much better than the one in Florida. They could do the same here.

                  Well I'll certainly give it a looksie next time I go down to WDW. One should try a place before they write it off. But so far, I'm thinking meh. Rainforest cafe. mediocre food. Chuck E Cheese animatronics. Don't need another one with a dinosaur theme.

                          The Rainforest cafe at Disneyland's Downtown Disney is much better than the one in Florida. Better A/A animals as part of the deal was that our Imagineers got to do the A/A figures. Food is better too. So hopefully we will get one under the same deal. I would really like to get a Build A Dino too. Hopefully that won't interfere with the Build a Bear that is already in Downtown Disney.

                            I think a dinosaur section of DCA would completely fit. Remember the La Brea Tar pits? California has more of a connection to dinosaurs than Florida. I agree with Lost Boy in that this would be very fun. It would have to be realistic, not the 'tacky' style of dinosaurs at DAK.

                              There aren't dinosaurs at the La Brea Tar Pits I learned that the hard way, they only have Saber Tooth Cats, Mammoths and other mammals.

                                  Ahh...

                                  Now the wheels in my head are turnin'. A pre-historic restaurant inside DCA would be perfect! Imagine eating with sabre toothed tigers, mammoths, ground sloths, and dire wolves in a California setting. Every now and then they can have an indigineous person as well.

                                  That would be interesting, unique, and still tied into California...

                                    I absolutely love dinosaurs. However, the ride Dinosaur really freaks me out. I'd love to eat with them. Stegosaurus is my favorite.
