How exquisite to find delectable dining right alongside prehistoric pissers and dinosaur dig sites. Disney’s Animal Kingdom, while being the biggest of the four Disney World parks, offers the least eating options. If you want to grab some fossil fuels for you and your crew, but don’t want to spend too terribly much, consider stopping by Restaurantosaurus.
Inside is a hustling bustle of hungered humans craving their calories and carbonated beverages. There’s nothing quite like ordering your lunch underneath the fossils of a pterodactyl.
Here’s Amanda picking up our order – this was a mid-day snack, so we planned to save some money and stomach space for later by sharing one meal.
Once away from the main ordering area, there’s a spot where you can personally garnish your gargantuan sandwich. Don’t worry; you can be generous with the onions, nobody’s watching.
Our snack consisted of a vegetarian burger, McDonald’s fries with barbeque sauce, and Diet Coke with lemon. The veggie burger was certainly edible, but still retained that particular panache that carefully crafted faux meat has. But, the lady likes them, so I went along, and ate my ersatz burger. The fries were your typical McDonald’s fare, slightly salty and made much more pleasant when dipped in tangy barbeque sauce. While I don’t drink much diet soda when I’m at home, it became a companion on this trip; with prices so high, we usually opted to share beverages, and Diet Coke was an agreeable compromise.
There’s several scattered sections inside the restaurant to eat in, all decorated differently. Ours was a small corridor, which went heavy on the archeology theme. Overall, this was satisfying for the purposes it served, a quick meal to give us energy to continue exploring. It’s a good spot to stop at for lunch, especially if you have kids, but definitely not a dinner destination.
