Sci-Fi or TRex??

Which do you think is the better restaurant for kids (ages 10, 8, and 5): Sci-Fi Drive-In or TRex?

I prefer Sci-Fi. It's something you can only do at Disney. T-Rex is owned by the same company as Rainforest Cafe so they are very similar. Since they are chains, the food is nothing to write home about. Cool atmosphere, but IMO, I'd rather go with the more unique option.

We absolutely LOVED T-Rex when we went there last December & currently plan to eat there in 2 weeks. However, we're also planning to eat at Sci-Fi this trip. Understand that the menu has changed a bit at Sci-Fi since we were last there, but still want to give it a go.

Considering one is in DHS, and the other is at DTD, you could easily do both. The food is mediocre at both, so you are basically picking on atmosphere. Have you asked the kids what their preference would be?

I'm an adult who loves T-Rex. (Thought sci-fi was enjoyable as well.) I just love the dinosaur theme. I loved sitting in the ice cave. I know lots of people say its the same as rainforest and I know that they are owned by the same people but I don't have a dinosaur themed restaurant any place near me and I don't really care about going to a rainforest themed restaurant so I love going to T-Rex.

I would go sci fi over t-Rex. My boys are 5 and 8. Our last trip we went to both. The sci fi had great food, our waitress was awesome, and it was just a fun experience. T-Rex was the next night and it was neat for about 5 minutes. It was very crowded, we were seated in the middle section and it was hard to move in and out of your seat with out bumping into another chair. It was also very loud. I didn't think it would bother us but after a long day at the park the noise, and changing lights were just too overwhelming for us.
