WORST Disney Springs Bar: Rainforest Cafe
In terms of the Worst Disney Springs bars, well, we only had one to name.
The tricky thing about The Rainforest Cafe being in Disney World is it’s also everywhere else. With locations in 11 U.S. States, you have most likely heard of and/or visited another Rainforest Cafe location. This being said, don’t waste time on your magical Disney vacation at a location you can visit at so many other times in your life!
The Rainforest Cafe offers chain-restaurant food and drinks, such as what they would offer at any other location. Consider it more of a safety net in case nothing else works out.
Spend a night sipping on a coconut mojito and watching the sunset at The Boathouse or dancing to swing music between drinks at Enzo’s Hideaway! There are so many unique experiences at Disney World, so don’t make it a point to add this to the itinerary.
