T-Rex Restaurant, Dine With the Really Big Boys

The Orlando Sentinel has more details on the T-Rex a new themed restaurant at Downtown Disney in Orlando. It’s being developed by Landry’s restaurants (which operates the Rainforest Cafe chain) and is scheduled to open fall 2008.

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 30,000-square-foot project, 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.

Is it me, or does this restaurant sound much more interesting than Yak & Yeti, another Landry’s restaurant under construction at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom. I think T-Rex could have been the food anchor for a whole land based on dinosaurs and other beastly creatures… oh wait. (Link)

    Sounds like a “really big” show in the making…

    Will be interesting to see if the staging of the Experience lives up to the pre-opening hype.
